The brief was ambitious and Fripp Design and Research had a very short timescale in which to complete the work.  After a fast track period of research and brainstorming, Fripp came up with a refined brief and deliverable project plan. The team at Fripp Design and Research leapt into action developing the initial concept and managing a team of carefully selected sub contractors to deliver the prototype unit. 

The final concept for the gadget bag was to produce a prototype messenger style hand bag with a series of devices built in to maintain the bag's security.  The bag senses if it is moved beyond 5 meters from the owner, if it has been opened by anyone other than the owner and alerts the owner to the absence of its contents.  When it is alarmed it flashes lights, has an audible alarm and can even dispense a thick coloured smoke to draw attention to its location and the fact that it has been stolen. 

The team at Fripp Design and Research used an array of services from its portfolio including Concept Design, Computer Aided Design and development prototyping to successfully deliver the end product.  The team then managed a collaborative approach using local suppliers in a real team effort to ensure the end prototype remained true to its concept, satisfying the brief and providing a visually strong, fully working product to suit the show's style...and we won; thanks Suzi for a great brief!
