Product design defines the world around us and creates meaningful user experiences. From your kettle to your phone, every facet of every produced object has been thoughtfully considered and created by a designer. In this course, students are introduced to the product design process. With a focus on concept development in the design of everyday objects, students will explore contemporary design issues such the social needs, function, and market requirements. Students learn how to bring concepts to life through research, concept development, refinement, and prototyping. Skills such as drawing techniques and basic scale model making are also addressed.
