5 minute PRESENTATION
As a CMU student studying design, I am surrounded by students that have less-than-ideal sleep patterns. I have seen people about the same age as mine constantly sleeping for 5 hours at night, or sleeping at 4 o'clock in the morning.
According to researches done by Australian Sleep Health Foundation, about 33 to 45% of adults sleep poorly or not long enough. If you sleep less than six hours per night and have disturbed sleep you stand a 48 percent greater chance of developing or dying from heart disease and a 15 percent greater chance of developing or dying of a stroke.
Based on my research of 40 college students coming from different universities, I have developed this persona to summerize their characteristics.
I chose HoMedics as the proposed brand for this product because of its SoundSpa product line. The use of light and sound and the intended size of my product fits my product well into the collection. Analyzing the SoundSpa collection helps me to better understand their form language and aesthetic choices, which helps me to choose the color and material for my product.
