Stream Product Design – 2013
In the summer of 2013 I joined Stream Product Design as their first ever intern to help work on Sunsprite, assisting in the research and design of the product in concert with manufacturers and a technical team to manage feasibility, functionality, and aesthetics.
Natural light is crucial for regulating your sleep cycle, and has proven benefits to energy, mood, and focus.
For both those with seasonal and non-seasonal depression, it has been shown to reduce stress and be more effective than antidepressants in treating depression, and light therapy is being prescribed as a remedy for the 15% of Americans diagnosed with seasonal affective disorder, and increasingly more for general depression.
Sunsprite is a personal light tracker that improves health by monitoring exposure to natural light.
The product went on to win multiple awards and mentions in press, notably “Innovation of the Year” 2014 from Popular Science.
