The young company has landed itself as a new competitor in the consumer electronics market, however struggles to retain a strong brand identity. At the current moment, their display systems and speakers are the two main product lines that are keeping Vizio afloat.

I used Solidwork for 3d modeling, Keyshot for renderings, and photoshop and illustrator for layouts and graphic treatments. For Sense speaker, I was inspired by the soft touch, and wanted to emphasis experiencing different feelings on the tip of your hand. For Ocular, I was inspired by an image of beautiful everyday products. And for Cushy, I wanted to have soft and friendly feeling and wanted to get rid of techie feelings from the device.

For this project, I was not specifically solving the problem with the existing product. There was no critical problems or functional problem, with the products, but identifying the overall problems with the brand was not an easy job. The biggest challenge for this project was merging, shrinking and implementing the brand strategy to a single product.
