The Cug is the new refreshed idea of the conventional mug. This design questions the purpose of the conventional mug, investigating ways to achieve better results in a simpler, aesthetic and more practical way. The Cug is a coffee or tea container designed to keep your liquid hot and your fingers cool.
Design Toolbox: Idea Generation
For this project we were given a brief and asked to experiment with as many idea generation techniques as possible while coming up with as many ideas as possible.
The aim of this project is not to come up with a really good and refined idea, but rather to try hand at a lot of different idea generation techniques and start to understand which techniques work for you. Cross Word Design Toolbox is created for those people who prefer to write rather than sketch straight away.
Project can be found here.
Design Toolbox: Research
This project focused on research methods and techniques to gather the best and most relevant information.
We were given a brief were our task was only to research the brief. The project we had to research about were strategies to enhance productive and healthy environments for the older workforce.
The point of this is to reflect on how as a designer you can research a brief, what research tools you have at your disposal, what makes sense as a research tool, and how research can inform your design.

World’s smallest microwave plugs into USB
If you can’t tear yourself away from the computer for long enough to get lunch this could be your ideal desk accessary.
The tiny microwave plugs into the USB slot on your computer and can be used to heat up a snack or drink in seconds.
It was designed by Heinz and experts at GAMA Microwave Technology, and measures just 150mm x 160mm x 190mm making it the world’s smallest microwave.
Before you rush out and try to order one, spare a thought for all the poor IT managers across the country who just let out a collective gasp as they imagined you spilling sticky food all over ‘their’ keyboards.
Practically everyone and their pets have a Facebook account these days, so you could probably bet almost everyone is familiar with the ever so popular Like button on the Facebook Platform. But are you aware the button has been made into reality with the ‘Like’ stamp? Cool huh!?
