how is aesthetics important?
my designs based around the aesthetics of the product
the product has to look like the real model
it needs to be something attractive to the target audience
is form more important than function?
the form of my product is very important, but the form has to be designed around the function. the product might not be able to be built efficiently if the aesthetics is the main form
the consumer will be attracted to the design of the product
the function has to be focused on because the kit has to be assembled mainly using finger joints by the target audience.
how will i research to find the right aesthetics for the design
i will research past products to see how much detail has been previously used
i will look at how previous products and see how they have been designed to be put together well
i will look into the real like version that i will be making and find details/measurements/blueprints to get a rough idea of what i can design on CAD
will the target audience effect the design of the product
the target audience will effect the aesthetics because an older target audience will want a more detailed project whereas a younger audience will want a less detailed project that will be more durable to play with
i will have to look at previous products that have been made
