Secondary 2: Dining Storage Accessories Project - Research Part 2/2: Focused Product Storage

 Focused Research and an example.

This shall be your second set of research, Focused Research, after you have done your General Research activity and had written your Design Need and Design Brief.

The objective of the general research on various types of holders/storages is an activity to help you practice and learn to pick out innovative products. And also to be used to navigating through the DesignJournalSOS blog and all the cool websites. When you identify and read about the products and then form your own comments to be written beside each product, that will help you appreciate even more on the uniqueness and the type innovation associated with the product. What you produce for the activity in your journal will also help me understand your ability to do so.

Let's get started on Focused Research. Well, as the name implies, this research is 'focused'. By now you would have selected what you wish to design and make. For me? I've decided on a 'business card storage'.

So for this research activity, you'll focus on seaching for innovative, cool, funky, quirky, etc. business card holders/storages. From where do you find examples of innovative storages? Refer to my list of 'Design References'. The process and the procedures are similar as the General Research activity.

Fill up to 3 or so pages of your selected type of holders/storages.

Bring your work on the date I set for your hand-in.
Look out for announcements in your class FaceBook page for updates.
