Stund by Naerwear

A mindfullness device years in the making

I was contacted by a small upstart almost a year ago. The company Nearwear had a small mindfullness device they had been working on for a while, and they wanted to bring me in on the project to look at options for how such a device might look and feel. I worked on this project as an industrial designer, as well as a 3D visualizer.

Sketches were the natural first step in conceptualizing the device. Nearwear knew that they wanted a wristworn device, with a single interface, as well as a LEDs and vibration for feedback. I was told to think of how to attach a band, as well as how the interface might present itself in an intuitive and non obtrusive way.

Face of Stund

After this, the company went into development mode, and a couple of months after, they asked me to have a look at some visuals that they needed for their Kickstarter campaign.

Adding motion to bring Stund to life.

A lot of those stills were developed further as micro-animations, to bring the watch more to life.

The Kickstarter will soon be live. Until then you can check out their own website for more information :
