Shimano’s products have

mini mal c o lo rs , and that was what we kept

in mind while apply brand language to our power tools.

With high quality finished products and powerful engineering of Shimano, Preci sion was what we expected from our prototype.

SMOOTH BODY ERA

Flow form as if it is created by the wind

Smooth body is one of the best example styles from car industry in late 1990s that focused on a fast innovation and an individual design language for each brand. The cars feature smooth design as if their form emerged from rocks shaped by water. Overall form is integrated. Details are carefully designed to keep the flow along the shapes. Aerodynamics is the focus of the design.

INSPIRATION

Details are carefully added with out breaking the overall form

Smooth transition between sufaces

EASY DIG | USABILITY TESTING Team Project

Muscles used

Redesigning garden tools is a challenge. They are everyday objects that have rarely been changed in decades. However, I saw this as an opportunity. No one has changed them, doesn’t mean they can’t be improved.

Research

The selected garden tool to redesign was a Shovel.

Common Injuries

Broken wrist

Lower back pain

Ligament and soft tissue injuries

Bone fractures in arms

Cuts

Testing and Analysis Step 1 Force tool into the ground Users’ hands usually slide

along the shaft and get cuts from splinters. Some even lost control, and the shovel flew out of hands creating hazardous condition for user and others.

Searching for a better grip Most of the time what we are looking for is already somewhere out there. We just need to find it. We may not need to invent the whole new system. This project is a good example. Power tools, which are more expensive, and generally offer better grips.
