3 Further Research Comment on each part of your game:
Counters, box, box graphics, cards, instructions, tray/insert & board What materials and process would you use for your prototype and why? What materials and process would you use in the real world? Part Prototype Real World Material Process Counters Acrylic Laser cut ABS Injection moulded Box 600 micron card Die cut Box graphics Paper stuck onto the card Digital printing Direct onto the card Gravure Cards Paper Digital printing & Encapsulation Card (coated, or spray varnished) Instructions Coated paper Gravure / offset lithography Tray/insert HIPs Vacuum forming Board Board backing fabric, 2mm grey board with paper. Digital printed graphics. Board backing fabric, 2mm grey board with coasted paper. Gravure printed graphics. Paper – 80gsm

4 Layout NAME Brief and Survey

5 Issues Social Moral Environmental Sustainability
Around the product, materials and manufacture methods chosen.

6 Social, cultural, moral, environmental, economic and sustainability issues
AQA Graphic Products

7 Moral A designer may not want their designs to be used to promote products that have potential drawbacks for the consumer. An example of this could be fast food or sweets that, with excessive consumption, could result in long term health damage. Moral factors may influence a designer's choice of materials. For example, using recyclable materials

8 Social Users need to be considerate in the use of their product
Noise from MP3 players / phones etc Users may stop being socialable / be more socialable Listening to headphones instead of speaking to each other Playing a game users may intereact with echother more Designers need to be aware of the impact of their product and design products appropriately. Other social issues are: The aging population Obesity Smoking and alcohol use

9 Cultural Designers should be aware that some images and text can cause offence. This can be because they contradict people's religious or cultural beliefs. Globalisation has exposed more people to different cultures, and this has inspired designers' work.

10 Economic Designers want people to buy their product and for their product be desirable. They need to consider peoples incomes. A consumer may want to buy a product, but may not be able to afford it A manufacturer may find it cheaper to make the product elsewhere.

11 Environmental / sutainability
Designers have a responsibility to work in a way that reduces the environmental impact of a product. Raw Materials Paper and card are made from cellulose fibre from wood, old rags or old paper. Care needs to be taken to ensure that wood is from sustainable forests. The processes of making paper may produce waste. Manufacturing Inks and solvents used in manufacturing processes may be harmful unless used and disposed of correctly. Products Products and packaging can cause large amounts of waste if they are thrown away. However, many kinds of graphics waste can be recycled.

12 Environmental / sutainability
Rethink - How can the product do the job better? Is the product energy efficient? Has the product been designed for disassembly? Reuse - Which parts of the product could be used again? Has the product got another use without having to process it? Recycle - Which parts of the product can be recycled? Is this information clear on the packaging? Repair - Which parts might need to be replaced? Which parts might fail with use or over time? How easy would it be to replace parts? Reduce - Are there any parts in your product that are not needed? How can the amount of material be reduced? How could you simplify your product? Refuse - Is your product really needed? Have you thought about the people who might be making your product - are they treated fairly (pay, living and working conditions etc)?

13 Environmental / sutainability
Built in obsolescence is when a product is designed and made with parts that are known to fail after a specific time. This means a new part or a new product will have to be bought to replace it. Designs that try to reduce waste will avoid built in obsolescence.

14 Moral, social and ethical issues
It is the responsibility of the designer to consider the moral, social and cultural aspects of their design It is the responsibility of the consumer to justify and feel comfortable with their choice when purchasing a product. Is it ever right to: use child labour? develop cosmetics through testing on animals? breed, grow and sell genetically modified crops? demand products that encourage deforestation? transport day to day items on a global basis? use heavy pollutants in a products manufacture?

15 Ethical trading To trade ethically you must at least:
ensure safe working standards and procedures in the factories set out fair pay and working conditions for employees act upon the impact of production on the local environment assurances that the trading procedures are sound can be gained from the presence of the fair trade symbol.

16 Mark Scheme The implications of a wide range of issues including social, moral, environmental and sustainability, are taken into consideration and inform the development of the design proposals

17 Layout Social Moral Environmental Sustainability NAME Brief and Survey

18 Page 2 Title: Testing & Manufacturing Specification ½ page per part

19 Testing Choose you materials Test them Take photos of the result
Write about: How well has it performed in that test (or not) Give it a score At the end comment what each would be would be good for

20 Tests Wear Ease of cutting (different types of cutting)
Ease of creating Water resistance Appearance / aesthetics Others?

21 I will… (what you plan to do)
Testing I will… (what you plan to do) Comments on materials chosen for purpose here Say what you plan to do and why Do the table with results and comments (WITH PHOTOS of results) Underneath the table comment what each material would be good for and why Material Photos Test 1 Test 2 Test 3 Test 4 600 micron card Take photos of all 4 tests together in 1 photo Write about the results 6/10 Paper Encapsulated paper Paper with coverseal Acrylic Grey board Board backing fabric Tests Wear Ease of cutting (different types of cutting) Ease of creating Water resistance Appearance
