15 Finishing a Research Sheet Task:Using Blue-tac, lightly stick down all your images. This sounds simple, but you have to stick them in the right place & without any mess!Learn:To organise & arrange images properly.To stick down images cleanly & securely.
16 Development TasksDuring the research phase of this unit, we will be looking at main areasMorphological AnalysisSimplifying ImagesInitial Design IdeasJustificationDeveloping IdeasChoosing the Final DesignModelling the Final Design
17 Development Task 1 – Morphological Analysis Create your own Morphological analysis tableLearn:About using the morphological analysis to help create different design ideas.Outcome D1.5 Selecting and using idea generation techniques to generate a design proposal.
