Designing for yourself, what do you like? ...or design for a character of your own making. How do you communicate personality, emotion, character using color, shape, symbols, materials, forms?....then build it!
We had about 18 young designers from 9 years old to 12ish in our workshop. We talked about Industrial Design and how we work. How we start by defining "key attributes".
-Who are we designing for? Yourself or a character of your own making?
-What is important to that person? Features?Color?Appearance?
-How do you convey these attributes in the shape, color and the forms you chose?
-How do you build a prototype?
