Transcript of the design process

Design Brief...

the design brief;
identifies who the design is being created for and the needs and requirements of the end user.
outlines the situation/design problem and the specifications related to the design
specifications are typically organised under constraints (size, budget, materials, function etc.) and considerations (a preference to use sustainable materials, design influence by mid-century style).
When designing a product, a designer must research various elements in order to ensure that the product being designed is on target, reflective of the clients needs and innovative.

key elements to research are;
product use/function
fabrication and finishing details
colour palette
target audience
Know EXACTLY who you are designing your product for ...the Mercedes Smart customer needs are very different from the Dodge Caravan customer
in an interior design application
in a product design application
The stage in the process where designs are developed accurately. Depending on the design
discipline, this stage can include drafting, modeling/prototyping, 3D rendering, and engineering.
This stage often includes input from other professionals including project managers, contractors,
manufacturers, engineers, etc.
Inspiration boards provide an opportunity for the designer to present and visually communicate the direction which they want to take the design. Inspiration boards communicate styles, materials, details, etc. This step in the process encourages conversation between the designer and client, ensures that both parties are on the same pages, and offers a visual reference for both the designer and client.
The purpose of concept / ideation sketches is to brainstorm and explore multiple different concepts in a very imaginative and creative way....this stage can also be referred to as 'design exploration'. Although primarily used at the inital stage of the design process, concepts sketches continue to be used throughout the design process as an essential tool to design, problem solve and communicate details and mechanisms with the design team, engineers, and or clients.
Sampling & Testing
The sampling/prototype stage allows for a series of tests to be performed to assess the design and ensure that it meets the needs of the end user.
at this stage, products are tested for form, size, functionality, durability, ergonomics, materials and finishes, and product aesthetics.

The DESIGN PROCESS is a series of stages used by designers in multiple design disciplines to design and develop a product from concept to final production.
There are
key stages within the design process.
These are:
Design Brief
Concept / Ideation Stage
Design Development
Sampling and Testing
Final Production
stages of the design process.....
Your Assignment:
Often the goal of an Industrial Designer is to re-design and improve upon an existing product.
One of the most frequently cited industrial design product is the CLASSIC COKE GLASS BOTTLE. The classic coke bottle has become an icon all over the world for the sleekness of its design. In reality, what this bottle does is hold a popular drinking beverage.

Using the series of stages in the DESIGN PROCESS, design a container that is as aesthetically pleasing and functional as the glass coke bottle.
Choose ANY material, such as plastic, wood, glass, metal, within your design.
You are NOT limited to what type of edible product you design for (food or beverage), the choice is YOURS.

At the conclusion of the video, please see the instructor for your
DESIGN BRIEF/ASSIGNMENT reviewing the design objective and scope.
