    DOUSED


Doused is an app that encourages people to use reusable cups and be well hydrated while reducing and combating the consumption of single-use plastic bottles/cups and earning rewards. In line with the Sustainable development goal by the United Nations promoting Responsible Consumption and Production, otherwise known as SDG Goal 12 by the UN, the app aims to encourage sustainable consumption and production by promoting the use of reusable cups/bottles.

It may track daily water consumption, in which the user may also set a daily goal of water intake, and where they may learn about how much plastic waste they have saved by the amount of water they have consumed using their reusable cups. The app is gamified as small achievements may grant users badges while a certain amount of saved plastic or goal achieved may grant users with physical rewards such as free cups of coffee at cafes.

The profile page also features an interactive “design my cup” function where users may be directed to the app’s website to design and shop their cup. The overall objective of the app is to encourage eco-consciousness while keeping healthy.



    INPUT

Input is an app that enables businesses and different organizations to generate and design data visualization through a simplified and efficient process. The app makes translating and simplifying complex data less threatening among creatives and non-creatives through a customizable data visualization generator for various kinds of projects and presentations.

The app features two main functionalities.

1. Input - This is where users may either upload or copy-paste data, verify then generate their own data visualization. Users can then choose their preferred chart type, customize their project and jot down notes before saving their output.

2. Insights - This is where users can find archived data visualization projects with their notes. They may edit and share these files on social media or through e-mail.

By providing users with an accessible process of generating customizable data visualization, the app encourages users to engage with complex statistical data and translate it into visual data with ease.

Behind the brand is a mini publication created for budding independent designers and young creatives/artists to feature not only their works but also their creative processes, vision, and stories of how they can achieve and establish successful careers in their respective creative fields.

The publication aims to encourage individuality. The first issue of Behind the Brand features Melbourne-based Jewellery Designer Alix Yang. She shares her creative process, how she ended up being a jewellery designer from working as an operations manager for a tech start-up company, what she loves about design and finally, her vision for her brand’s future.

Seeking Solace in Isolation is a mini photography book / publication that captures images of life during quarantine.

Working on this project amid a Pandemic, I wanted to emulate the feeling of isolation throughout my design, from the cover, which features letters isolated from each other, a short narrative depicting feelings of sadness from going through such an ordeal, as well as the image-treatment featuring images printed with magenta ink and monochromatic images.

Functions of Forms is an experimental photography project that looks closer at the mundanity of still-life objects to observe their shapes, forms, sizes, materials and colours to explore their different functions or lack thereof, with the user or the viewer.

For instance, the pantograph of a tram that enables it to operate, a scattered piece of crumpled cellophane, a curved bench made out of metal rods, a blue see-through textile laid on top of a metallic grid, the shape of the street cones, the yellow strips placed along the edges of the stairs or the circular neon pink paint on the pavement. The materials, colours and overall designs of these objects affect how people see them and utilize them. The project aims to look at the connection between an object and the user/viewer by exploring the relationship between form and function.

Although most objects in these photos may be purposeful, some purely function for aesthetic. As such, the images may be perceived with one’s interpretation of what the objects could be regardless of what they should be for.
