DECKARD BIOMETRICS SYSTEM
The Deckard Biometrics System was the final group project for course ID 2402 Professional Practice
I led pitch creation, concept illustration, and design of a conceptual polygraph inspired by Blade Runner. The final pitch and concept design was presented at the headquarters of CapGemini to its Vice President, as well as the rest of the class.
In the final project for the class, we responded to a mock Request for Proposal from the Tyrell Corporation, inspired by the Blade Runner franchise.
Over the course of one month, my team members and I formed a mock design firm, called ZOO, and pitched our design among 7 other "design firms" in our class in the CapGemini headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.
We treated this project as an opportunity to practice our pitching for real design firms we build in the future.

As I designed the biometrics system, I decided prioritize accessibility and comfort for users of all ethnicities. This meant considering different melanin content or feature shapes than those of the traditionally white user persona. I was inspired by my love for portrait illustrations, as well as my own experience as an Asian American who's dealt with painful and slipping glasses my entire life.
My design took a range of human face-shapes into consideration.
OUR PROPOSED DESIGN
LIGHTWEIGHT INCLUSIVELY DESIGNED WEARABLE
TABLET WITH MAGNETIC CLIP-IN ASSEMBLY FOR WEARABLE
African face shape
more protruded jaw
Asian face shape
Touchpad that fits into the palm of a hand
European face shape
After a month of research and preparation, we delivered a mock design pitch to the Tyrell Corporation, considering how to tell the most powerful story about our design firm "ZOO" and the potential of our wearable design.
