    Aid, Industrial Design

    Board I was told that the name of the project, the font I used for titles and the color combination resembled of drug packaging, therefore it creates expectations about a medical solution.

    Research I was asked questions about social issues that would effect the system including was to avoid stealing, use of the objects as weapons and proposing a fair system.

    Concept The critics suggested that the concept should be more child-friendly in shape, common garment to carry the battery and also a unibody design that includes the light and battery in one.

    Materials Many critics recommended looking into local materials. Some were curious about the recycling of the materials. And some suggested that I use real batteries and build the actual system.

  • I look forward to seeing how you have incorporated the feedback of critics.

    I thought your presentation was looking good. The boards were greatly improved (the diagram was clear and eliminated all of the superfluous information that had once been there).

    Great testing notes -- now show us how you incorporated the feedback from testing into the design.

    Your technical drawings can be used to communicate your design thinking -- use them to call out where you have made critical decisions and why you have determined certain formal attributes (why this shape/measurement/material, etc). We don't want to take your word for it, we want to see what has been carefully considered vs. what is arbitrary.
