PROCESS PROBLEM I was presented with a real-world design problem, design a carrier that can carry both food and drink with ease. I then had to come up with a solution to my problem. Through my design process you can see the evolution of my project from start to finish.
SKETCHES My originial design was a hexagonal box, I changed it to a gable box later in the process.
PAT T E R N I had to develop a pattern, and make changes to it to fit my needs. In my case, I modified the design to include the built-in cupholder.
FINAL My final food carrier was constructed from 2-ply chipboard. The typography was printed using acetone transfer.
MODELS I made a series of models and prototypes, trying to find the design that best solves the problem.
REPORT With a partner, we traded food carriers, and tested the food carrier. The carrier should not fall apart, it should be comfortable and easy to carry. Also, the carrier should get the food to your destination. You should be able to open doors, walk up the stairs and ride the elevator. It was concluded that cups were a big issue and also getting the food, covered, to your destination.
My carrier was successfully able to carry a sandwhich, chips, and a drink. There were no problems in durability.
My partner was able to press the button to queue the elevator, as well as able to press the button for her desired floor, all while carrying her lunch.
My partner was able to open all doors to the stairwell, in addition to being able to carry the food successfully up and down the stairs without issue.
