OXO Liquiseal Redesign - The goal of this one week project was to redesign a product found in Target. The product I chose was the OXO Liquiseal Travel Mug. This page highlights the main problems with the mug.
OXO Liquiseal Redesign1 - This ideation page highlights the main problems with the mug, and I begin to develop a solution to the awkward button placement.
OXO Liquiseal Redesign2 - The main problem with the mug was the seal mechanism. Here, I ideated to find a method of sealing the mug withot creating a large chamber in which excess liquid and bacteria build up (as is the case with the current design.)
I settled on a telescoping silicone design with a spring click mechanism. The benifits of this design include less trapped liquid, a sealed mechanism, easier cleaning, and less wasted space.
OXO Liquiseal Redesign3 - This final page shows the reposition of the button, and the relative placement and scale of the new mechanism in the mug top.
