A holistic system design for type 1 diabetics on the go: a life-style travel case with temperature-controlled insulin capsule, tessellated package redesign, redesigned Medtronic packaging for user friendliness, and a companion app.
Inspired by seeing a friend with type 1 diabetes struggle to pack for a long trip abroad. We noticed that he took an additional backpack entirely for his diabetes supplies. This project won a Gray Magazine Design Award in 2018.

objective: to design a protective case with a temp-controlled capsule for insulin that integrates with the objects people already have
75% more space,
to pack more things that matter.
The T1 Traveler case consolidates, protects & tracks supplies that are essential to life, while making room for additional meaningful items.
Capsule fits 3 vials of insulin safely. Internal padding and vacuum-insulated container gives the best seats to the star of the show.
