Gerber® Graduates® 2-In-1 Healthy Snacker is currently the only snacker with a removable strainer that keeps wet snacks fresh and mush-free. The concept was came up by a group of students at Carnegie Mellon University to create healthier snacking habits for toddlers and young children. ION Design was approached by Nuk to redesign the product that is ready for the market.
I worked on this product under the supervision of a senior designer to make sure that the design fits the brand language of Nuk products lines. The water-proof co-molded opener, the strainer and the tethered cap also have to work well together.
During the phase, I explored several ways of attaching and lid to both the top and the bottom of the cup. I also took a look at the overall form. The final "S" shape design creates a nice curvature for the cup, at the same time allowing the top diameter to be slightly bigger than the bottom so the tethered lid can snap both ways.
