product for lifestyle+life-stage transition

Recently, we have participated in a design competition organized by diabetesmine.com. The brief of the competition sounds simple*, however, it turns out to be not. Diabetes and diabetes related products are one of those worn-out topics, however, through our exploration, we’ve realized that  there are still lots of things to do in this medical, technology and profit-driven topic.

In our project, we specifically looked at the pre-teens and teenagers who recently diagnosed or who are in transition to take care of their own diabetes treatment. Yes, every road is to transitions! I got the chance to practice my framework in another transition issue, and came up with a good set of design concepts investigating the idea of modes in transitions. Here is a glimpse of the concept, and if you are more interested in we also have a blog.
