Project Brief: Design, prototype and produce face shields to combat the COVID 19 crisis 

Face shield redesign

Designed around all abilities

Unlike competitors, the ergonomics, rigidity and needs of the face shield were designed around people of all abilities. The strong and simple construction, organic form and overall use, made the consumer base larger than ever before.
