Iterative development

A big part of the design research stage was figuring out how to incorporate device driven culture into a small device. The result of this was providing users with a simple 'docking groove' to hold phone/tablet devices making the DOCK the central hub for your device.

In order to implicate the Dock into mass production, I managed a team of engineers in China from engineering validation all the way through to mass production. Developing the DOCK in China has allowed me to gain vast amount knowledge on different manufacturing techniques whilst also allowing me to better understand the product development process in the east.
