  • Good luck on your IB English exam!
  • Remember, I need to see you twice before 5/12 so we can review your Paper 2 and 3 responses.

Today we'll mess with the marketing and design specifications of your IA

  • Take a look at this example:
    • Cat feeder IA example.pdf
    • Give it a quick grade but really focus on the Marketing and Design Specifications
    • Discuss and look at what IB gave it. 
  • Take a look at this project -- Floss BOSS.pdf  and really look at the Marketing and Design Specifications....
  • HOMEWORK

 CLASS ACTIVITIES 

A detailed design brief comprises the expected outcome and broad requirements determined from the market and user research. The feasibility of the project should also be considered.

The design brief is the formal starting point for a new design. Occurs when the designer presents the design to the client. It is a statement of the expectations of the design.

The brief does not provide the design solution, but is a statement that sets out:

  • the design goal (for example, a working prototype to be evaluated in terms of its feasibility for volume production)
  • the target Audience for the product. For example for children, disabled adults, etc.
  • the target market for the product. for example, market sector (a broad way of categorizing the kinds of markets a company is aiming for) or market segment (markets divided up into smaller segments where the consumers have similar characteristics and tastes).
  • the major constraints/parameters (these have to be in such as legislation or food safety regulations). For example, should comply with new legislation, have fewer working parts, be cheaper to manufacture) within which it must be achieved
  • the criteria (these are wishes, it would be great if??) by which a good design proposal may be achieved (for example, increased value for money and/or cost-effectiveness for manufacturer).
  • The feasibility of the project
  • Scale of production.

This should on approximately one A4 (letter) page or equivalent.

      • 12 questions based on whatever topic you get
        • Two have to include a graph
        • Two have to include a picture
        • Two have to involve some sort of real world example
        • The remaining six can just be factual
    • Please do a good job on these -- if the questions are too easy or poorly written there will be consequences for your grade...
