GCSE Manufacturing Double award (vocational) Pewter Project
Year 10 GCSE Manufacturing Door Plaque Project Background Every company or organisation has a corporate identity. This means that they have some sort of a logo which reflects the nature of their business, i.e. what they do. All Saints school has a logo, but separate departments do not. The D&T department at All Saints still has a rather old- fashioned image for the modern curriculum that it teaches. Task The D&T department needs a new image which reflects what it does. Your task is to design a logo which includes the name of the department. This should be suitable for manufacture as a badge or door plaque made from acrylic sheet and pewter. You will be required to present a prototype door plaque to the department at the end of the project, manufactured using CAD/CAM available in the department. What you need to do next: Design Brief Write a short paragraph explaining the design brief and what the final product may be used for. Research Write down a list of things you need to find out about before you can start sketching ideas, e.g. I need to find out how to get the machine to cut out my design in order to make a prototype. Specification Write a list of five things the product must do, or be like in order to be successful, e.g. The plaque should look effective in only two colours.
