Before delving into our product, I'd like to introduce our friend Sally...
We knew Sally is not alone in experiencing disorganization, so we set out to find out what other students think.
College students have anxious experiences with regard to using and maintaining their limited closet space.
So, we now ask ourselves...
To answer this question we went through the full ideation process to help us come up with a solution to not only Sally's problem, but the universal problem of limited space that everyone faces at one point in their lives.
S P L I T! The one-size-fits-all organization tool.
This eco-friendly drawer made from recycled plastic is fully adjustable in every direction, making it customizable to any size drawer. Each modular component of the insert can be adjusted according to the drawer size and desired size of each compartment.
WHY IS SPLIT THE BEST ORGANIZATION TOOL?
SPLIT efficiently optimizes the limited space
it is tailored to be the perfect size of any drawer
eliminates the awkward gaps that can arise from using pre-sized drawer inserts
allows you to adjust the number of compartments whenever you want
SPLIT ensures max organization and min disruption
physical separation between different types of garments makes it easier to find items
keeps the disorganization contained within the compartment post-rummaging
