Andrea Rizzotto, BA (Hons) Graphic Design student
Andrea is in the final year of the BA (Hons) Graphic Design course. In 2017, he won Gold in the ‘Product & Structural Design’ category at the Creative Conscience Awards for his Smart Diabetes Case. The Awards recognises innovative design projects undertaken by students and graduates.
Inspired by his diabetic sister, Andrea designed a case embedded with sensor technology, Bluetooth, and GPS, to detect any missing equipment. It then notifies the user through a smartphone app when any equipment is unaccounted for.
In his interview for AUB Human, Andrea speaks about the inspiration behind his project
“I used my sister as a case study, who was diagnosed with diabetes in 2006 when she was 13. The idea of the case is to contain all of her equipment and track if she’s missing anything.”
