Breast Cancer Awarness Aid

The Spark team was tasked with designing a breast cancer symptom awareness aid. The project required 3D CAD modeling and prototyping to verify all features, textures, and colours. Spark contributed project management efforts to organize all industry proffesionals ; moulders, painters, videographers ,and a marketing team were cordinated and schedueld by our internal staff to create a comprehensive commercial style video for the client.

Three Main Symptoms

The client recognized that “Black woman face a 40% higher death rate of breast cancer than non-racilzied women. But nothing exists to help Black women identify the symptoms on darker skin tones until now…” (loveandnudes.com).

The three main visual symptoms, as identified by medical professionals are discolourations (brusing), skin texturing (”orange peel effect”), and various types of lumps.

Three Main Symptoms

Sparks team was tasked with visualizing the three main symptoms through 3D CAD texturing, material selection, colour application, and internal lump design.

Spark created several 3D Solidworks iterations for the skin texture before the final look was achieved.

The team also created comprehensive bruising patterns to illustrate the different colour variations and tones needed for the different skin tones. Thoes documents were then passed on to the expert painters for final prototypes.

Several versions of lumps were designed and tested to mimic the characteristic of real cancer lumps. The team created 3D prints and tested them on cast silicone moulds.

Clipping on the Bras

The team was also tasked with creating a system to install the breast cancer symptom awareness aid on the bra. Industrial designers developed a unique clip system that easily installs the product onto existing bras.
