// time: two hours
// final submission: a prototype presentation to class
Introducing you the W’s - the WHAT, WHY, WHO and HOW.
Dig deeper in your research...
You shall select a product and an audience to design for from a shop in the vicinity of City Flinders Campus (30 minutes to go out and find a product & audience). This will be your case study object to research and the context of your research.
Once you familiarise yourself with the product you and your team are required to completely reinvent it based on your research findings.
The main objective is to improve the function by reinventing its use. Make it more useful, make it more unique, make it speak to a broader audience.
