Hue is a concept for a multi-dose inhaler that makes a bold statement instead of being a source of self-consciousness. California-based designer Tim Zarki proposed ‘hue’ as a concept for the #breathebetterwithcs community design challenge put on by Creative Session. The design is modern, funky and fun – well suited to the current athleisure and urban-gym fashion market. Hue is featured in four different colour combinations — candyfloss pink and mint green, coral and sapphire blue, mint green and cherry-red, and sleek black and white. The colour of the outer shell has an ombré fade from opaque colour with black spatters to translucent, allowing the vibrant colour of the internal canister case to show through. The mini woven cord handle is both practical and aesthetically pleasing, tying in with the colour of the canister case. Hue relies on 3D printing to vary the colour, transparency, and rigidity of the material, allowing for CMF (colour, material, finish) options and features that would otherwise be challenging.

Spiro is the concept of a multi-dose inhaler for asthmatic users, aimed at helping them to control their crises more effectively, in a discreet and comfortable way, with an aesthetic character. Thus, better management of the inhaler is presented in view of the conditions of each user, so that they can maintain their quality of life. Challenge Spiro inhaler was created to respond to the Community Design project proposal, #breathebetterwithcs, presented by @creativesession . #inhaler#design#designprocess#designportfolio#productdesign#industrialdesign#danielpintodesign
MINI PROJECT 1 // IN USE PHOTO . The final product shot is a photo that shows the product in use, in its environment, showing off its main features. This is the designer’s best attempt to tell the product’s whole story in one snapshot. . PUF is a metered dose inhaler concept designed to offer users a product they are proud to own. This ergo focused, refillable inhaler promotes proper use, while providing a sustainable alternative to today's disposable inhalers. With its compact form and eye-catching color options, PUF is a transformative asthma accessory. . For the complete story, have a look at the full project on Behance. (link in bio)
MINI PROJECT 1 // ANIMATION . There’s no better way to show off a product’s feature set than with an animation. Whether it be a quick gif, or a full animation, seeing the product move in real time tells a story that still images struggle to communicate. It’s the designer’s job to make sure the animation is clear, cohesive, and explanatory.
MINI PROJECT 1 // COLORWAYS . Colorways are a range of color options in which a product is offered. Us designers know the power of CMF (colors, materials, and finishes). So, both a standard and special edition options were thoughtfully designed to delight the user.
MINI PROJECT 1 // FINAL CONCEPT . Final sketch renderings were produced to work through the last details and ambiguous areas. . The final concept sketches should tell the whole story about how the product looks and functions, while also providing an orthographic drawing to start the CAD model from.
MINI PROJECT 1 // CONCEPT REFINEMENT . The strongest concept was selected for the next round of refinement. With the inspiration images for reference, functionality was developed while finessing the forms- moving as close as possible to a final concept solution.
MINI PROJECT 1 // INSPIRATION . Four keywords were identified to drive the inhaler’s form language. These keywords- “Inviting,” “Clinical,” “Refined,” and “Clever” were paired with example imagery to become inspiration for the project. This inspiration was frequently referenced as the product’s forms and aesthetic were worked out.
. MINI PROJECT 1 // IDEATION . This stage began with a brainstorm where all ideas and thoughts, for any aspect of the project, were documented with loose sketches. . From the brainstorm, three unique ideas were selected and developed further into potential concepts.
For Knack’s first mini project, we are sharing one you may already be familiar with- PUF, a metered dose inhaler. We’ll be laying out all of the steps we took to develop this concept. PUF was designed by Knack for Creative Session’s “Breathe Better with CS” challenge. . MINI PROJECT 1 // DESIGN BRIEF . Current Product >> Today’s Inhalers are essential for asthmatics as they deliver medicine directly to the lungs. Typically “L” shaped and made of cheap plastic, inhalers are often associated with social insecurities. . Objective >> Design an inhaler that is thoughtful of the user and the environment. The inhaler should be an accessory that the user is proud to own.
