Inspiration On Your Wrist – Design Concept

Wearable tech could improve positivity – make a huge difference to a person’s mindset, rippling throughout their life and relationships for fulfilling outcomes.

I developed a smart watch concept that will monitor pulse, body temperature and motion in order to prompt timely delivery of motivating images and inspiring messages.

For example; elevated heart rate, without physical movement, could be an indicator of anxiety – in this instance the device would alert the wearer, through tone, music track, vibration and/or screen lighting up, to inspiring content, tailored for them through preferences selected in an app.

The smart watch design prototype
The watch console would slip into a stretchy elastic strap that can be changed and easily replaced. Comfort, own choice of design, washable, changeable and inexpensive.

The strap idea came from my custom designed and printed hair and wrist bands.

There could be the option for the wearer to print their own strap design at home – making their product unique.

 

The idea is developing and I wonder whether this could be an app in itself. Will explore that idea.

Here are my latest Instagram highlights

Art for the heart: Count your blessings. I digitally overlaid this lino print onto a bright bubbly surface that I created digitally from one of my images. The woman is looking out hopeful to meet her love, and the man looks ahead hoping, the third series of cuts brings them together.

img_8209I didn’t want to take my phone on the pedalo and to the jet skis so I drew the events from memory as a way of illustrating and captuirng these fun parts of our trip.img_8227An unexpected art opportunity was the sculpture park in the resort of Ayia Napa. Acres of wonderful statues. Here are my favourites.

This was the only sculpture with colour but it was just my colours. I framed the shot for the wings to be cradling the moon as the early evening came.

I had a play with hand written lettering taking it digital as practice for the Illustration course I am studying. I overlaid the hand lettering in inverted colours over a watercolour sample to illustration three words, Freedom, Flow and Fun.

As exercises for the illustration course I have been working on illustration written articles. The first was a study that found that young children learn language more from speaking than writing practice.
