About me
Hey I am Louis, I am a Product Designer with over 5 years related experience. I believe that design is one of the most powerful things in the world and affects everything we do every day. I have experience of the entire product lifecycle, from research, prototyping and testing to iterating and launch. Got a project, problem or idea? Let's talk!
Projects
  • Nike Sense
    Nike SenseParticipating in a sport as a diabetic takes some planning. Currently, diabetics should make their doctors aware of their intentions and take notice of any advice.  This quite often leads to hindrance and apprehension, I wanted to change the way this is approached. Of course diabetes comes in different shapes and forms and still requires management. Through a combination of Nike sportswear and innovative medical technology, management of this disease is made that little bit easier.

    As part of a company-wide competition we were invited to submit our product innovation ideas to be developed. My idea was to have a personalised BBC Account which not only enabled the user to curate their BBC experience but collected valuable (and often missed) data.
