Moving forward on last week's intersection, I explored the scale/size/shape of the compost receptacle. The rendering shown in the designer's concept did not give a very strong sense of scale, so I sketched the product in relation to a person. I also looked at the way the product was used - I thought a 'mailbox' like slot at the top would be effective, and would allow the bin to be put inside of a cabinet. I also felt like the process did not need to be seen - although it is aesthetically pleasing in the rendering, I don't think looking at half rotting banana peels would be too attractive to look at for weeks at a time. Finally, I thought that the form could go along the designer's line of futuristic, or could be pulled back into a more simple, minimalist form.
