Senior

Hi, I'm Autumn. As a Georgia Tech student I have had the opportunity to discover and learn about the many facets that make up industrial design. I have found a love for interface and experience design, CAD modeling and animation, and in smart product design. I will be graduating in the Spring of 2021 and want to pursue a career in UI/UX design. Thanks for looking at my portfolio!

Coord

Class: ID 3824 | Instructor: John White

For this studio project we were tasked to pick any activity or area of interest and design an app, website, or interactive experience. I then designed Coord. Coord is the home management app to keep you and your roommates organized. New renters and homeowners have trouble navigating bills, roommate relations, and typically neglect chores and preventative home maintenance either due to forgetting, bad communication, or lack of awareness. So my goal was to create a platform to help renters and homeowners manage their household for a healthy and maintained home. Coord has features for bill tracking, roommate shared expenses, chore scheduling, and home maintenance tracking and tutorials.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, school has moved online for many students. Because of this, my team in Summer vertical studio designed a platform for online education. We created Backpack as an alternative to the non-kid friendly video platforms. Through our research we found that most video platforms were designed with adults in mind as the target user. Backpack is a tool designed specifically for elementary aged students.

Future Vision Boating Experience

Class: ID 3824 | Instructor: John White

Given the task of designing an interactive experience, I decided to overhaul the current boating experience and create a proposal for how boats will be operated five years from now. Currently recreational boats feature a dashboard design that has seen little change in the past twenty years. These dashboards are cluttered and can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate. Researching new and developing technologies such as augmented reality and safety features seen in cars helped me to design this new experience.

Class: ID 4823 | Instructor: Tim Purdy

In the class Advance Immersive Experience we explored virtual reality and how it can be utilized by industrial designers. Using Autodesk VRed Pro, I created an interactive experience for a car model. The VR experience allows the user to observe, make changes to, and interact with the model. I set up multiple environments to see the vehicle in different locations, the car's aesthetics can be changed by interacting with paint cans and rims found in the scene, the car's lights can be toggled on and off, and animations can be played. Getting to create a VR experience was such a fun learning opportunity and definitely a tool I will continue to use for prototyping in the future.

Class: ID 2024 |  Instructor: Steve Chininis

When tasked with creating a product to help the health/well-being of college students, I found the large opportunity area within helping women to keep normalcy even when experiencing period related symptoms. A majority of female college students find it difficult to be productive, to concentrate on their studies, and some even find it difficult to attend class at all. So I created She-Wear. Whether at home or on the go, this body suit applies heat to pain areas comfortably. With conductive fabric, the need for clunky wires that are found in heating pads and other pain-relief products is gone. Further technology includes the currently under-development flex battery, so the power source flexes with the body. With She-Wear I was able to design a pain-relieving wearable with both comfort and convenience as it can be worn discreetly beneath the users clothes.

With many at-home safes or lock-boxes, their appearance is obviously a safe. With the Pot ‘n’ Lock, your belongings are hidden securely in plain sight as what appears to be a planter. Using touch-sensors, the buttons to unlock the safe are flush against the pot blending into the aesthetic design. For anyone besides the owner, this is just an ordinary house plant. This project for Introduction to Smart Products was to design a smart product using Arduino and sensors we learned about through the semester. This was definitely an interesting learning experience working in a team dynamic while being scattered 100s of miles from one another due to campus closure. Overall, we were able to keep good communication and collaboration. It was a great chance to improve my skills in prototyping with circuits and coding. Although far apart, we developed a concept for a discreet safe that can be staged as home decor.

Define a space with light under the structural arches. The outer arches can rotate about the middle so that the user can set up a space however they please. At a height of 6 ft, it is intended for seating to be beneath the lights. The arches can be arranged for a more open gathering space if put in a ‘U’ shape, or folded in a ‘Z’ shape for secluded sections.

Class: ID 2023  |  Instructor: Kimberly Snyder

After being assigned a country, we were tasked with discovering food and culture of the state, then creating a 3-piece dining set. I was assigned the country of Japan and developed this Sake set complete with carafe, warmer, cup, and saucer. I wanted to design something inspired by traditional art of Japan but with a contemporary aesthetic. I took color and form inspiration from the neon lights of Shinjuku, and geometrical details are based on the art of Shibori indigo dyeing.
