Title Page Name: Course Code: Centre Number: Candidate Number: Project Title:
Brief & Introduction Copy and paste your brief and context here Write your introduction here use the statements below to start you off: For my GCSE Graphic product I have chosen to make….. To meet the brief I will have to ………….. I am expecting to use the following materials and tools in my project……. I will conduct my research by……………. My product may be suitable / designed for …………. The whole project should take ……………. (time scale)
Time Plan Place your time plan / project plan spreadsheet here:
Secondary Research: Existing Products Use ACCESSFM criteria and/or indepth written analysis of 4 or more products similar to your chosen project brief. Aesthetics: Metalic, heavy Client:Sci / Marvel fans Cost: Expensive £50+ Environment:Recyclable materials used Safety:Floor stand solid, little chance of someone falling over it Size: 3M X 3M approx Function: Advertising, visual impact Manufacturing:Carton board, die cut e.g
Primary Research Go to the shops, look at home etc and take pictures of similar products. Deconstruct any products you can I.e. packaging boxes, stands etc to see if you can use any of the features on your project. Take pictures, write notes, show this on this page. Primary research is work you do yourself. You go to interview someone. You go visit a place and learn on your own. Write a summary of your findings: What common themes were there? What aspects might you use in your project? What other research could you do from here?
Target Market Research Write a target profile of a customer / user for your product: What sector of the market are you aiming for I.e. business, leisure, education etc? Who is you product aimed at? What do they do? What are they interested in? How old are they? How much approximately do they earn? How much spare time do they have? What can you do to your product / design to make it appealing to them? Use images and examples to support your statements.
Specification Write your specification using the ACCESSFM criteria. Be very detailed about each section Your specification should be detailed enough for someone else to be able to pick up your product planning and make the product. Aesthetics: Client: Cost: Environment: Safety: Size: Function: Manufacturing:
Initial Idea Drawings 1 Once drawn scan or photograph your drawings and place them here, DON’T FORGET TO ANNOTATE THEM!
Initial Idea Drawings 2 Once drawn scan or photograph your drawings and place them here, DON’T FORGET TO ANNOTATE THEM!
Drawn Development Use this page to evidence your final large pencil / fine liner drawing of your intended product
Development CAD Use this page to detail the process you followed in CAD and/or evidence your final 2D design developments. Include dimensions
Tools and Materials Use the tools and materials charts supplied by your teacher to fill out this page. List each tool for your project: List any safety issues with them: List how you intend to use them: Add a picture of the tool or material: e.g.
Modeling and modifications 1 Follow the tips below to help you write up and evidence your modeling: Use photographs and notes to write up your modeling processes. Make sure the evidence is stage by stage Make clear notes about three or more modifications you will make as a result of testing your models Show design progression in your prototypes Focus on the form/function and mechanics of the item when modeling e.g.
Modeling and modifications 2 Follow the tips below to help you write up and evidence your modeling: Use photographs and notes to write up your modeling processes. Make sure the evidence is stage by stage Make clear notes about three or more modifications you will make as a result of testing your models Show design progression in your prototypes Focus on the form/function and mechanics of the item when modeling Write up a summary of modifications at the end of this page…
Production Planning Use a flow chart diagram to chart the flow of each stage of your project: Initial Designs: Modeling and development: Surface graphic development: Final Making: Remember to include feedback loops for demonstrating quality control checking. e.g.
Surface Graphic Development Use this page to layout any design progress you make in Photoshop or other applications. Take regular screen shots of your design work, write short statements detailing the processes you use. Explain why you took the design decisions that you did. e.g.
Making Diary 1 Evidence the making of the final product here: Show regular images of the main stages of your making process Write notes to support your images Explain any issues you had and how you solved them e.g.
Making Diary 2 Evidence the making of the final product here: Show regular images of the main stages of your making process Write notes to support your images Explain any issues you had and how you solved them
Final Product Testing Place an image or images of your final product here and write any notes about the final product: How can you improve on it?
Evaluation & Mass Production Use this page to write an evaluation of your product using the ACCESSFM criteria, make sure you address all of the points you made in your specification. Do not be self congratulatory, be honest Mention some aspects of improvement to the design or product outcome Make sure you detail how you could make you product ready for mass manufacture.
