What is it?

What is it?

Bedtime is a connected home lighting system that helps people get to bed earlier by adjusting light color and brightness, influencing the body's circadian rhythm. Bedtime learns the user's behavior, turning off lights at scheduled times to create better sleeping habits.

Let's get to bed earlier with bedtime. 

01. Interviews

01. Interviews

I spoke to 4 people that have trouble getting to bed on time and wanted to dig deep into their relationship and attitudes towards their bed time. I was curious about the difficulty that they face when attempting to get to bed and what they do to prevent or help it.

03. Insights & Opportunity Areas

03. Insights & Opportunity Areas

After synthesizing my findings from my interviews, I developed high level insights related to way that lighting helped people "naturally" feel more relaxed and tired. I then began to see several opportunity areas emerge that I could focus on, in order to create a positive change in people's lives. 

04. Brand Identity

04. Brand Identity

I wanted to create a product that could easily fit into any home.  I chose black and orange as the primary colors for the brand, to represent darkness and light. 

05. Storyboarding and Sketching

Bedtime can wake you up by turning on a blue toned light to make it easier for your body get out of bed once awakened. This is especially helpful for users that wake up when it is still dark outside, the light is set on a timer to help the body adjust more fully.

The packaging, unboxing, and set up of the bedtime keeper all play a role in the user's overall out of box experience. Beauty, simplicity, and the natural world are key themes I made sure to include in the product's packaging.
