Samuel BairstowIndustrial Design & Technology BA
A placement year at DEMAND – Design and Manufacture for Disability, has changed my perspective on superfluous design. The work displayed here exemplifies my progression in designing innovative products for the bigger picture. This in turn rewards me with a greater sense of achievement than designing the average consumer product. This course has inspired my outlook on design. I am a fun loving and adventurous individual who thrives off any challenge, design-based or otherwise.

A large majority of those fatalities are attributable to other vehicle drivers lacking awareness. I-SAW uses Radio Frequency transceivers to increase the public awareness of motorcycles on public roads.
