work in more you is an experience designed so you can stress less, and make more time for you. This project consists of self-care kits and an interactive installation in order to bring positive emotions to students during the most stressful time of the semester: finals week. We want to design with compassion, to spread feelings of reassurance, and to give people a more approachable and light-hearted way of discussing mental health. Through bringing people’s attention to self-care, we can spark a discussion on campus about mental health, and promote a healthier environment for everyone in a way that is fun and uplifting.
Role: Campaign manager, product designer, product production
What exactly did I do?: I published and managed our Indiegogo fundraising campaign. I wrote all the copy for this project and kept our campaign updated. I communicated with people who donated regarding their perks and shipped them out. As a product designer, I worked closely with faculty member Jiwon Park and the other product designer, Duo Xu, to figure out how apply branding throughout a variety of products. We worked with the branding and communication teams to brainstorm product ideas as a studio. I was also in charge of working with finding suppliers and handing over deliverables so our products could be purchased and produced. I also prepared files for riso printing and created product mockups.
Below contains examples of initial product mockups I created at the start of the project to give potential supporters an idea of what products we will be creating.
