Process & Development

These sketches are excerpts from a variety of different projects at various phases. It depicts my design process such as investigation, research and concept sketches. It shows communication of complicated biological organisms, along with its potential application to design. Quick sketch models and photographs of process work are included to demonstrate the importance of 3D investigatory research towards the final concepts.

Investigation: Patient Movement on Bed

Pressure Points In Hospital Bed
