2D Rendering

Dimension

Components

A quick illustration to translate the visual of the design to the audience better.

Drafting out the basic dimensioning of the overall sizing and the details measurements

Components placement to show which part of the product certain parts are located at.


Maquette Making Testing of product measurement, ergonomics and overall proportion.


Final Prototype After severe refinements, more development and detailing, the final prototype is being made.


CHEF’S HELPER 4 WEEKS PROJECT / HUMAN CENTRED DESIGN (In collaboration with Daryl Shen)


Activities

• Time management and planning is important to optimise food taste • Timer should be simple to keep/store to prevent misplacement during cooking • Design should accommodate userʼs cooking style (e.g. number of simultaneous processes)

Environments

• Messy cluttered space when cooking • Design should accommodate kitchen cooking capacity

Interactions

• Unorganised cooking • Miscommunication between multiple cooks • Design for simultaneous usage

Objects

• Loose recipe notes • Timer will get lost among many items • Design should be visible and clear

Users

• Alternative users require time management as well • Design could be flexible for different uses (secondary users) • Design should not too complex (not for professional cooks)

AEIOU This help us create a better understanding of the task and the flow of it.

User Personas Target market are being categorized into 2 groups and what are the users’ key goal for the product.

Wist List This quick activity allow us to have a tabulations of what the user does and need.

Direct Observation Examining the user’s behaviour and how they interact with the product.
