My Design was a range of food supplements that used minimal package to reduce the amount going to waste
The Current Methods of food production and consumption are extremely wasteful. Its time to revolutionise the way we think of food in a new bold and unconventional way, Ascend is designed change the language of food, by being a food supplement, that uses minimal amount of packaging to reduce the amount going to waste.
Ascend includes a patch that contains nutrients that are delivered through new technologies developed by the US army, with different applications for consumptions (chewing gum, dissolvable tablets and liquid)
This alternative is for people that tend to be constantly on the move and don’t seem to have the time for lunch.
Choose the flavour you want and the paper sachet into the holder and pierce with the bung to consume.
A single portion pen that hold a paper sachet that contains a flavoured liquid based on the patch.
It reduces the need to buy lunch and delivers the user with a boost of nutrient that they may be lacking.
This alternative to lunch is for users who tend to spend their lunch at a desk and in front of a computer.
Simply apply a nutrient patch and drop a flavoured dissolvable tablet into a glass of water wait for it to dissolve and consume the liquid.
A single portion contains a dissolvable tablet and one patch in a sachet for easy transportation. A whole box contains 6 patches and 6 dissolvable tablets which could be for personal use or shared.
Reduces the need to buy lunch and delivers the user with a boost of nutrient that they may be lacking and increases the amount of water the user consumes.
This option allows the user to have a patch on them at any time, The patch gives the user the nutrients they need.
The chewing gum is used to replicate the behaviour of eating, the gum has a flavour which is based off of what pattern is on the patch.
With the chewing gum option it the user can either save the extra patches for their own use or share it with friends and family.
Reduces the need to buy lunch and delivers the user with a boost of nutrient that they may be lacking,
