IMPLEMENT TOOLS FOR PEOPLE AXE & HATCHET
Implement Tools were designed for a class called Human Factors in Industrial Design. In this class we took an extra detailed look into anthropometrey.
During user testing we had to construct a test rig that was effective enough for us to record the data we needed to design an axe and hatchet to suit the majority of ImplementĂ•s demographic.
Not only for effeciancy but for safety as well. a well accurate hit to a tree is well preferred over a shot to the foot.
SKETCHES/ SKETCH MODELS
axe testing results
hatchet testing results
good control length fat rounded grip
lower handle too thick
too fat grip
angle keeps wrist neutral good weight distribution tear shape
awkward to handle harder to aim rear too sharp
proper swing technique
length improve force felt lighter easy to slide
american felling axe
areas of stress
from the data that we collected we concluded that a majority of people donâ€™t know how to hold, handle, or use an axe properly. form, grip, and swing are the most vital components when handling an axe.
feels good both ways implied pistoal grip length
used backward foward grip limits wrist travel harder to aim
IDEATION RA affects more women than men starting in the 20’s to 30’s The worst signs start to appear in the late 40’s to 50’s. To get food these people must cook whether it be for themselves or relatives. Why not make it easier?
A study On the effects of arthritis on older men and women. A developementOf a product that can make life with arthritis easier.
RESEARCH rhuemetoid arthritis A chronic autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks healthy tissue lining the joints.
benefits eliminates stress on wrist by skewing angle of the handles no more hitting the counter with your knuckles force is deriven from the body equally push/pull is one simple motion instead of using your back
TASK// re-design of the classic cylinder whisk handle. there is a need for a more ergonomic design for those with arthritis.

How can we in fact redesign the reusable shopping bag? Where can we reduce, reuse or recycle? Despite recycled material and reducing transportation and manufacturing energy, how can we make this bag truly Simply Green?
Design Brief Simply Green. JCP was having a contest to see who could come up with the most creative design for their reusable shopping bag.
Design Criteria Follow JCP’s dimensions. Use 3 Colors or less. (2 of them already determined. Submit by deadline.
By re-using, turning old memories into something useful that will be in the user mind and heart always. By turning old shirts into bags.
Pilot Program We ran a test program at our building to see how this idea would pan out. It was an instant success.

The Tag Heuer language is quite ambiguous. It is harsh and bold, yet soft. The material changes are in great contrast. The brandâ€™s products send a message of complexity, yet simplicity. The watch is a very complicated instrument. Yet, its surroundings are simple and clean, which brings about a focal point right in the face of the watch. The simple and the complex donâ€™t just contrast, they collaborate in a way that moves the eye over and throughout the product. Eyes follow curves, these curves lead into material changes, and sharp angles and this keeps the viewers eye alive. Our understanding of the brands language, and the companyâ€™s direction provided us with the pefect design opprotunity and I think that our designs were very successful in the sense of reflecting the merge between design aesthetics and functionality.
