PHILIPS hairdryer redesign

 

In this project, I redesigned an existing PHILIPS hairdryer from around the 00’s. The design was carefully analyzed and reassembled in an effort to reconfigure the main inner parts from the tool. The design language of PHILIPS nowadays (“sense and simplicity”) was taken into account by determining the baselines of the new design. Secondly, a specific identity was chosen by making a mood board according to five keywords that described the intended character of the product. The words were picked after studying the vision and the style of the brand, in particular hairdryers and other similar products.
The outcome was a product that was innovative and compact but had a friendly character with flowing curves. The product had to be designed for a unisex millennial that has an independent vision about its lifestyle.
