Miniall is an avant-garde fashion brand that is inspired by the combination of fashion, technology, and healthy lifestyle. This multifunctional jacket provides automatic temperature adjustment and health detection.
Business and leisure travelers share two similar pain points when they are traveling:
1. Heavy luggage with seasonal clothings
2. A weakened immune system from constant climate and environmental changes.
How can we allow travelers to pack lighter suitcases, while also staying healthy when they are traveling?
Miniall Final Deliverables
Meet the users
We collaborated with film students Randy Wang and two models Hanna and Fabio for video shooting.
Learn from our users
We interviewed travelers who travel for leisure and business to gain a deeper understanding of their travel routine and their pain points.
We found out that a common cause of heavy luggage is seasonal clothing.
“My luggage is mostly occupied with seasonal clothing…there is no space left in my luggage to put my other stuff and my bags weigh a ton…” -Catherina Han
Switching seasonal clothing due to climate change can be inconvenient
“I hate changing my clothes every time I arrive at a new place, especially when I’m traveling from somewhere hot to somewhere cold.” - Lauren Taylor
Every participant has personal experience regarding getting sick due to climate change.
“I always catch a cold or get sick due to climate changes or food poisoning…” - Jack Chang
Our goal was to take all the findings from our research and interview that will help us generate ideas and find possible design solutions and deliverables that will resolve the travelers’ pain points.
Define Our Brand
To help us define our brand better, we did competitor research, metrics, lean canvas, 10 years road map, and blue ocean mapping.
We developed a visual language for Miniall. We wanted something that felt innovative, contemporary, bold, and revolutionary.
How Miniall Jacket Works?
How Do Users Adjust Jacket Temperature Through Hand Gesture?
We wanted to explore other way (outside of the phone screen) that the users could adjust the temperature on the jacket.
Jacket Design and Production Process
We designed the Miniall jacket together and collaborated with Emma Chen (a fashion freelancer) who helped us produce the jackets.
This is the default screen where it featured the user’s Miniall jacket. The user can swipe up to view the current jacket, the user’s body, and the surrounding temperature.
Miniall app is the user nutritionist where it provides the user’s health data from the skin tattoo that is located on the wrist of the jacket. Health report allows the user to see their health status and at the same time keep the user healthy.
Inside the menu, there is “My Jacket”, “Bookmark, “Health Report”, “Jacket Status”, and “Contact”
The saved temperature bookmarks are designed for future use. According to the user’s preferences, they can save their current jacket temperature to a bookmark. There are two ways of saving a bookmark; the first way is to save it through the app and the second way is to save it through hand gesture.
Ideation Sketches, Wireframes, and Interface Design Process
While ideating, we explored the relationship between wearable and screens.
