As part of a Middlesex University AimHigher scheme we were asked to a 2hr workshop on ‘product design’. This started a quick tour of the workshops, and then a brief over view of what they thought a product designer was.
We then told our group of 20 students that we were going to create and develop a new and innovative concept based upon there interests. By using the students interests we could use them to get insight into the specific project.
The point of the workshop was to explain the concept development process of product design, and concept presentation aspect, that is so important to communicating core product ideas. The young designers were year 7′s (11 year old) and y11′s (16 year old). I was amazed at how capable the students were with using product design processes.
