Coral restoration tools

Onda Design in partnership with The Nature Conservancy (TNC)

I led the Onda Design team through our research phase, where we took a holistic approach to understanding the current coral restoration landscape. We did technical research and experiments, expert and user interviews, and co-design with current restoration practitioners in the field. We prototyped tools with the goal of increasing coral reef restoration efficiency 5x and reducing costs 50%. Within the team I led design exercises, designed an app mockup, did the branding, graphic design, and storytelling design, and conducted biodegradable materials research and geometry prototyping for one of the tools. The work is ongoing so I cannot say much more, but hopefully it will be out making an impact in the world soon!
