People nowadays tend to more rely on having take-out food because their eating habit has changed due to their busy life. However, despite the fact that a number of take-out containers have been designed, packages for take-out burger meal are not really developed so far.
Therefore, this package is designed to provide a more conve nient way of take-out for fast food industry as well as its customers by designing handy carrier for take-out burger meal consisted of a burger, french-fries, and soda.
The carrier will reduce the volume by about 50% compared to that today because I tried to simplify the design and minimize the amount of paper used with a hook for French fries, a sleeve for a burger, and a hole for soda drink, which causes people to carry it easier, and more materials saving. It is one-handed, convenient, practical, and compact, so your hands can be more free by holding all in one.

This is an experimental screen saver that keeps your screen and even information on it away from prying people.
Every single letter and image on the screen moves and gets jumbled all around the screen randomly when your computer is inactivate for a while. So, people might see what page you were working in, but cannot recognize what is written on it.

New concept of crayon packaging design [Silk Screened]
Crayons are generally placed and stored in such a box unfashionable and even inconvenient to take crayons out from. In other words, those crayon boxes only act to protect, or rather, just arrange crayons inside, but offer difficulties using crayons in users' experience. Therefore, I tried to put a new concept of beauty and usability to crayon box which can satisfy all users with its packaging.
I was thinking that a role of packaging is not only to protect its contents but also to offer more differentiated experience and usability to users. Therefore, this crayon packaging is designed in order to aim to protect its contents as a case, as well as to help users use it in a more practical way by expanding the role of its packaging. It provides two different functionalities by enabling it folded in 2 different directions, rolling from out to inside vertically to close it or flipping it over horizontally for standing crayons against the triangular frame on the desk.
Also, by choosing orange as a dominant color, it still seems lively although it becomes more simple and sophisticated to be able to target all people as potential users.

When using a japanese saw, we have difficulty cutting perctly accurate.
It is usually happened that guidelines are not seen clearly because of the sawdust, which makes us to blow the dust off by mouth.In order to make up for this weakness, I was thinking about a new concept of saw which have a blower. Its principle is to blow the dust off when the wind comes out from the blower.

When I researched abandoned animals, I was really surprised that about 8 millions of animals are abandoned annually. It includes lost, and unwanted animals because of its owners' pregnancy, moving a house, or pets' health problems. They are all adjusted living in side of home and being taken care of by humans, so they suddenly become really vulnerable. They can be killed on roads, or if some are lucky, they can be rescued and sent to pet shelters.
However, more challenges are waiting for animals at shelters. Today, conditions of shelters are quite poor or even bad because of non-enough funds. It causes poor service, bad facilities, and small-limited space, that affect pets to get more stressed, more aggressive, and more diseases with poor hygienic environment. Also, shelters have difficulties hiring enough professionally trained workers. Because of this non-enough trained workers who understand and know animals well, animals can have more potentials to be abused, be illegally adopted for financial gains, and get more severe trauma or pains. Every single conditions of animal shelters today are all negatively affected and connected by each others, which is followed by low possibilities of new adoptions. Therefore, pets can be neglected even at shelter of euthanized.
Therefore, I was thinking about how to raise possibilities to be newly adopted. I thought, if facilities and service of shelters are enhanced by money from a new contribution way, or think even further, if shelters are changed in order to engage more people to come and see animals, opportunities of animals to be newly adopted can be absolutely increased.
So, I have come up with an idea that is expanding the role of current pet shelter to make it a new social place for pet lovers. Simply, by applying the idea of pet cafe to suffering animal shelters today, new shelter can become healthier and provide a new social place for pet lovers, which mainly aims to raise opportunities of animals new adoptions by allowing them to be more exposed to potential owners, and getting emotional bond.
PET SHELTER AS A NEW SOCIAL PLACE2013
When people are asked location of their medicine chest , most people say “Somewhere in a drawer”. Then, when unexpected accidents happen, people might be easily in panic. In this situation, it is difficult to remember where a first-aid kit (F.A.K) is, and patients may not properly get treated in time due to this issue. This is because of the fact that most medicine chest design is not such sophisticated and even dull, which cause people to put it in somewhere in a drawer like they said.
I designed First aid kit with red-cross shape which can prevent such circumstance mentioned above as it grabs eyes easily at once.
In addition, as it is sophisticatedly designed, it is good for decoration.
This is designed that each component has its respective space to fit perfectly. Therefore, it is always well-organized so that there is no time consuming to find what you need. Also, n order to keep hygiene of cotton swabs and band-aids, it has 2 lids, opened sharing one hinge, inside of kit.

As the number of vehicle became increased these days, a number of shops or shopping mall tend to pay their customers' parking fare by proxy to encourage them to spend money there. However, if you look at this phenomenon another way, public transportation, as another means of transport, can be also encouraged to use more.
This is a service design which provides reward to customers who take public transport on the way to shopping. Transport users give their transport card before paying the price. It would be swiped to check your traveling time for the last 6 hours. It is to prevent abusing this service, which is just showing your card without actual using.
By doing so, customers traveled in last 6 hours can get discount from its original price.

According to research about what each species likes, I found that dogs tend to like chewy toys and majoram herb while cats love smell of catnip and moving objects. Thus, there are two experimental concept designs which can help to release their cold relationship, caused by different ways of expressing emotions.
This is herbal collar design. As mentioned above, each species has a preferred herb respectively, majoram and catnip. ¬¬Cats love smelling, eating, and playing with catnip, which helps them to release stress, uneasiness, or even strain gained from outer environment whilst dogs are positively affected majoram. I designed a pet herbal collar which has a small container for aroma balls made out of compressed each herb extract. This container has lots of small holes to let scent come out easily. So, when dogs and cats wear opponents' herbal collar, majoram for cats and catnip for dogs, one can learn when the other animal comes closer, they become to feel relaxed, happy, and joy. It can also make them release stress and hostility gained from each other.
This collar also can be applied in contrast situation that they live separately. For this, dogs can wear a majoram collar, and cats can have a catnip collars as they initially like. By doing so, this collar design can make pets life more satisfied.

Each single light is triangular-pyramid shaped, which comprises exactly same size of 4 triangle surfaces. Also, frame of light is all magnetic, so more than one light can expand its shape by sticking on one to each other, even it sticks on every metallic surface such as on fridge in the night. In addition, rechargeable batteries make the light more convenience as it does not have wire around it.

The design concept of this table is derived from a deep ravine formed over a long period of time. A small but gradual change of angle on each board generates huge stream of the top surface of the table. Vertical gaps between boards also provide a space to be able to insert sub-sliding table underneath the glass surface, which let users extend table surface depending on situations or their needs.
