Garry Fernane - 8TRACE

Meet Garry

Hi, my name is Garry Fernane I am a Product Designer from Tralee, Co. Kerry. I have always had an interest in sketching and visually appealing design. I chose to study Product Design at UL as I felt it would complement my abilities and interests, and allow me to pursue a career in which I am able to create simple, effective and impactful products.

During my four years at UL, I have developed my visual and technical design skills through problem solving, sketching, prototyping and numerous software's. I am keen to build on my skills, education and work experience to make a contribution in the professional environment as I pursue a career in industrial design.

If you would like to get in touch with Garry you can view his LinkedIn profile or email him. 


My project addresses the issue of searching for a lost friend if separated from the group at music festivals, which can have a negative impact on festival goers’ experiences, whilst also posing a significant safety issue.

8TRACE is a wearable electronic device that allows festival goers to locate each other if lost or separated from the group and provides a means of necessary communication between the festival goer, paramedics, and their close contacts.
