  3. 3. I’m an Hello, my name is Samuel McClellan and I’m an Industrial Designer. I’m a graduate from Brunel University with a 1st Class Honours BA in Industrial Design and Technology, aswell as spending a year at Industrial San Francisco State University studying Product Design. I’ve always had a strong desire to be a designer and to create Designer. change through means of design. From taking drawing classes at a young age, I’ve had the ability to express my creativity and design thinking on paper and this is where my passion in design lies. I apply a very thorough and holistic design process throughout my work and am drawn to areas such as humanistic and inclusive design. When I say I want to create change, I ultimately want to design to help people and am not seeking to create a name for myself through products that bear no real purpose in life. I want my designs to have meaning and to change the way people go about their daily lives for the better. I believe in timeless design and hope to achieve greater sustainability in a products life through means of design.4 5

  7. 7. Product Design. The section showcases a wide spectrum of product design skills through a collection of design projects, company collaboration briefs and classes undertaken at San Francisco State University. Concepts range from a smart water meter to a new sex toy.12 13
  8. 8. Pivot Kettle. Arthritis can reduce motor capability in people’shands, resulting in difficulty performing basic tasks in the kitchen, such as using a ket- tle. Redesigning ‘domestic water processing’ to remove exclusion due to physical impairments should not carry stigmatism. In fact, an‘inclusive’ product can carry usability benefits for everyone. The Pivot Kettle can improve people’s kitchen experience by address- ing water filling, lifting, carrying and pouring. It does this byoffering a non-prescriptive handle design, providing posturally neutral hand positions to relieve physiological stress. Iterative development alongside physically impaired people pro- vided a rich context for a relevant solution that appeals to a broad market. Furthermore, the design principles of the Pivot Kettle are ready for extension into other water products.14 15

  12. 12. The design of the cross handles incorporates a rotational limiter mechanism at each pivot point which provides the user with a greater sense of security when using the kettle when limiting the level of forward rotation. Torsion springs placed inside the rotary limiter mechanism, automatically retract the kettle back to its original position if accidently let go of. The springs open up during pour- ing and close back when the front handle is released. A soft close dampener was integrated into the design to prevent the front handle from snapping back into place and shocking the user. Iterative development in prototyping through to user testing fuellled the design process and was vital to the overall design solution of the project.22 23

The people who are worseaffected are often urban dwelling civilians with no concept of basicsurvival skills. These disasters strip people’s lives down to a primitivelevel and their daily struggles become based around primary needs,such as how they will be sheltered.Wrangler embodies the concept of the true survivor; the individualwho is able to meet his or her needs through knowledge and rawphysical capabilities. Wrangler empowers survivors of natural disas-ters by providing them with the necessary tools they need to beginrebuilding their lives.26 27

  16. 16. The Wrangler Smoke Mask responds to the post-natural disaster effects of bushfires. The respiratory conditions exacerbated by the smoke and haze produced from fire results in hazardous condi- tions. The mask aims to prevent health risks by providing residents with vital inhalation protection from toxic fumes and dust. High risk areas will be automatically supplied with the mask during a residential meeting that highlights the vunerable areas of the town/city. Those caught in sudden disaster will recieve the mask from fire fighters dispatched across the area. The mask sits within a protective leather pouch that slips neatly inside a wallet, purse or pocket. The mask folds out revealing two ear straps that attach to the face and offers maximum performance of up to three uses.30 31
  17. 17. Smart Water Meter. A “Smart Water Meter” aimed at reducing the amount of water consumed within a domestic environment. The intelligent display uses Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) to record the amount of water used at different daily time intervals and provides the user with consumption data that they can upload to their computer as well as receive tips on how to reduce their water footprint. The concept is the result of a group project at Brunel University and was designed in response to the RSA brief ‘Make Something Disappear’, which required the use of design to eliminate waste, over production, or excessive consumption.32 33
  18. 18. “The concept has received a high level of online recognition.”34 35

The shakers, named ‘Tilt’, are weighted with a with a flat angled base so that they sit at a slant on the work surface and can be re-filled easily by removing the cork stopper. The concept was developed in a class undertaken during my time in San Francisco and aims to evoke fun and excitement when eating.42 43
  23. 23. Loving Joy Gloria. ‘Gloria’, a design concept submitted to Net 1On1 for their adult toy brand Loving Joy. The brief was to design a product that was both functional and aesthetically pleasing and to be the “next big thing in adult toys.” No more late nights in dark toilets, this product brings glory holes to the home. The flatpack ‘sexcessory’ is ideal for couples who enjoy the naughty and adventurous side of sex. “the UK’s biggest distributor of adult toys.”44 45

  26. 26. Design for Manufacture. The project required working in a team of 4 to carefully select an existing children’s toy or piece of office equipment to re-design. The re-design not only involved introducing a new concept but a concept that was designed for manufacture, resulting in producing detailed component drawings of each component. Each teams drawings were passed onto another who went on to manufacture five identical copies of the design. My initial concept of a children’s push-along wooden car was taken forward. The design integrated cam mechanisms into the wheel axis, that when pushed along would bob the passengers up and down creating visual excitement for the child. The passengers were made up of different shapes and required the child to slot each one into its correct hole. The design aimed to be intellectually aswell as emotionally stimulating.50 51

In China, the word for ‘8’ is assocated with wealth and prosperity; two words that are heavily embodied within the brand Bentley. The concept plays on this Chinese perception of the number ‘8’ by incorporating the idea into delicate features of the cars design. For example, within the embroidery of the car there would be a gap after every 8th stitch.56 57
