In 2014, Greg led a team of industrial designers and mechanical engineers to redesign Filip's wearable for kids. The brief was to design a latch for the existing design.
Through prototyping and user research with kids, we found that the existing design poorly fit wrists due to the internal design and construction.
Faced with several constraints, we redesigned the assembly from the inside out. We designed a patented internal structure that was flexible, but maintained the functional air gap needed for the three antennas in the band to function.
We designed a new assembly strategy which simplified production, improved part appearance, and reduced cost. We wrapped it in all new surfacing, respecting the original design's direction.
