Today we took in our prototype boxes that we were considering to use for our final paint pot idea. My idea was put out on a table with everyone else’s prototypes, and then we got given the opportunity to walk around and look at everyone else’s designs.
Initial Paper nets
I think my designs were well received, but i need to consider a few more elements that I hadn’t thought of before today. Some of the things that were picked up on are:
– support or protecting products: although i have thought about this already, I didn’t make it clear in my mock ups that there was going to be anything to protect it. I need to make a decision about what is most suitable
– how it would look on a shelf/ im a shop: maybe I need to go and have a look at a local store to see what the current market looks like and if i could make these boxes any different but to make sure they still look high class
– securing the lid: how would i make sure that the lid stayed secure during transportation?
– maintaining its class: someone suggested that they think it will be easy for me to maintain a high look or feel to the product and this should also been seen in my designs.
