Description of project:
In this project, I designed a wallet product. I obviously 3D printed my prototypes and finished off the rough product with the rest of the materials I designed it for.
Purpose of project:
The purpose of this project was to learn more about designing a simple function object in the most minimalist, simple, efficient, and effective way possible. I went in to this project with the intention to truly create a useful wallet/product.
It is difficult to design the simplest, most efficient, and most effective version of something. This type of design requires you to think and pursue a solid set of design principles from the very beginning. Figuring out those set of design principles is the hardest part.
So far I’ve been doing a more of iterations process with developing this designing. In other words, I made design decisions based off of results. I need to start over and pursue a solid set of design principles from the very beginning.
