4 EXAMPLE Research – Mood Board Your Name Your Project Title As part of your research you will need to create a ‘Mood Board’.A mood board is a selection of images that relate directly to your project. A mood board can provide inspiration for design ideas.Pack the page full of images related to your project!EXAMPLEYour Name Your Project Title
5 Mood Board Laura Jewitt Elegant Floral Traditional Introduction: my mood board will allow me to get a clear idea of what my client likes. It will act as visual inspiration for my designs. From my brief I have to make a small storage device with an influence from the last 100 years. This mood board will allow me to see exactly how I can relate my clients likes and dislikes to fulfilling the brief.Summary: From these pictures, I can see my client likes quite elegant things. She’s into floral, quite traditional designs. I have selected the designs and items I like the most that I feel I should incorporate some aspects into my design. I feel the embellish around the mirrors makes it look more interesting. I also think the shape of the products is elegant and refers contains art nouveau inspiration which is my clients favourite design era. I think I may base my products shape on these.TraditionalLaura Jewitt
6 Emily Waters GCSE Resistant Materials Technology Introduction: I am carrying out an analysis of existing products. This will give me information to help me decide what features I want to include in my bird nest box and how much it should cost. I may also find out information to help me decide what finish my product should have, how big and how heavy it should be.14cm x 15cm x 31cm,Wood and stainless steel£49.99For small birds such as blue titsMust be kept out of sun as it will become very hot26cm x 20cm x 16cmSoft wood£19.00Roof overhangs to keep rain out0.80 kgFor small British birds (hole 32mm)26cm x 16cm x 17cmPlywood£16.34Corner drainage holes in floor0.80kgNon-toxic preservative finishBlue Tit, Coal Tit, Marsh TitThe drainage holes in this nest box allow any water that does get inside to drain away helping to keep it dry. I will put drainage holes in my nest box. This product is made from plywood and so this is a possible material for my nest box.I think that the problem of possible overheating in this design means that metals are not suitable materials for a bird box. My mood board showed that wood was more likely to be a suitable material aesthetically.I think the roof overhang is a good idea as it helps to keep the inside of the box dry. I will use this idea in my design. This box is made of softwood and so this is a possible material for my nest box.52cm x 21cm x 19cmPlywood£29.36Corner drainage holes3kgNon-toxic water based preservativeWoodpeckers, little owls, starlings, pigeons, jackdaws, thrushes, and kestrels.Product AnalysisEmily Waters GCSE Resistant Materials Technology51cm x 16cm x 18cmPlywood£20.42Drainage holes in floor1kgNon-toxic water repellent finishStarlings and woodpeckers74cm x 59cm x 50cmPlywood£86.81Sturdy front platform for owlets to exercise on.6.20kgNon-toxic water repellent finishBarn owlsProduct AnalysisThis page should be looking at existing products that both fulfil your brief and your clients desires. You should individually analyse each product talking about why you think that product could be successful. By completing this page – it should be clear to you and the examiner what route you wish to take, the products that you want to construct and why.This page could be completed from finding products / images from the internet – but is a lot more successful if the images are of products that you have handled and photographed yourself.You must first tell the examiner where you found the object. Describe each product individually talking about specially features such as materials and joints etc. Write about choice of material, cost and how the product meets your clients taste. What features of each product could or will influence your ideas. Discuss how you could incorporate some of the features to meet your clients’ needs.Source reference and include information within your bibliography.The non-toxic finish makes the box safe for the birds which may peck at the wood. I will ensure the finish that I use is non toxic. The finish is also water repellent and by using a similar one this would be another way I could ensure the inside stays dry.As this box is made for larger birds it is larger than the previous ones. My clients have asked for a small box and so one this size would not be appropriate for my design. Hinged lid for easy cleaning is useful feature.This box is larger still and much more expensive. The size and price would not fit with my clients requirements. The front platform is an interesting idea that I may use in my design.Summary: From this research I have found out that metal is not a suitable material to use for my bird nest box as it overheats. Existing products are made of softwood or plywood and so either of these could be suitable for my product. Existing products have drainage holes, an over-hanging roof and are finished with a non-toxic water resistant preservative finish to keep them dry. I will use these in my design. I have found that existing bird boxes are different sizes and weights for different sized birds. To meet my clients’ requirements of a small box that is not too expensive, I will make one for small birds. Some boxes have a place outside for the birds to stand and some hinged lids for easy cleaning. I may have similar features in my design.
