DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Ouch! First Aid Kit Design

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
First Aid Kit

INSPIRATION:
This is a portable first aid kit designed for everyday life. While becoming more environmentally friendly, we want all ordinary people without professional medical knowledge to be able to use the first aid kit easily and correctly in emergency situations. Do you know how to use a first aid kit? Do you know the procedure of trauma bandaging? Are you a calm person in an emergency? The questions above are where the project started.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Do you know how to use a first aid kit? Do you know the procedure of trauma bandaging? Are you a calm person in an emergency? Whether “yes” or “no”, we are introducing you to the best all-purpose mini First Aid Kit, which designed for your injury essential needs. The primary objective is to solve the questions above: how to make existing first-aid package design to become user-friendly and make medical items further organized. The secondary purpose is to make the package more portable.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
First of all, we used paper packaging, which is highly environmentally friendly, handy and lightweight, which suitable for carrying around. Then we divided the process of using the first aid kit into three steps: disinfection, treatment and bandaging. Through continuous design iterations, we used the method of opening the hexagonal box from the middle part of the front surface. The advantage of this opening method is to save time for injury. After experimentations, we discovered that opening from the front cover is 1 to 2 seconds faster than a traditional square box or zipper.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in October 2019 Toronto and finished in November 2019 Toronto (5 weeks).

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Packaging Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The project is made from 60lb weight recycle paper. The design was initially designed in Adobe Illustrator. Then we used a Laser cut machine to cut the box, and then we used a vinyl sticker machine to print the colour surface and numbers on the top.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width: 14cm Height: 12cm Depth: 2.3cm

TAGS:
Emotional design, handy, fast, easy to open, travel kit, step-by-step guide through

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We investigated the shape, size and content of at least 10 brands of first aid kits in the GTA market. Then I made various attempts with boxes of different shapes, and finally got our existing hexagon box style through continuous design.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest part of the whole creative process is to select the right medical items. We did lots of medical research about how to bind up a wound. Some essential first aid items are carefully selected in this first aid kit, and these items are sorted and arranged in 3 easy step-by-step use directions. The container is divided into three compartments: The first step is to clean and disinfect the wound, the second step is to apply various treatment drugs, and the third step is bandaging.
