Drain Strain

At Optimal Design, we worked with entrepreneur Naushad Ali to solve an every day issue; hair getting caught in the drain.  He noticed that there is no attractive solution out there on the market, and saw an opportunity.  The goal was to design a hair catcher that would blend right in with the bathroom sink.

I worked directly with the engineering team at Optimal design to develop user interaction and style concepts, as well as functioning prototypes to be used for testing.

Naushad ended up on Shark Tank and landed a deal with Robert and eventually Kevin.  Check out the latest Drain Strain update here!
