PROBLEM STATEMENT

Many users who lack confidence in public speaking often fidget around with their hands, bracelets, rings, etc. This results in portraying an unprofessional position to the audience.
 

DESIGN INTENTION

To increase the self confidence of a person who feels doubted in a work environment.


RESEARCH METHODS

- Client surveys

- Market research 

- Personas

- Journey mapping
- Prototyping
- Material exploration
- Macro interaction map

 

FINAL PRODUCT

I designed a product that has the words, STAND, HAND, EYE and FEET, engraved on it.

Stand - Stand up straight

Hand - Hands on the side

Feet - Feet open wide

Eyes - Eye contact

The purpose of this bracelet is to guide and remind the users that when they are in an uncomfortable position and/or having trouble public speaking, they should feel confident no matter what. As they wear this bracelet, and start to fidget with it, they'll quickly be reminded to fix their posture. It will have more of meaning rather than just being a typical bracelet.
