Coming from an engineering background where brief's were very precise and clear, I have found this project somewhat difficult. I have found that not everything is about how many CAD renders you produced, or whether you used Photoshop or Illustrator, or being very specific about what mateials and manufacture must be considered. Instead it is about asking why. Why did we manufactured from wood? Was it the sounds it created, the natural effect or the aesthetic of tradition teamed with the feeling of nostalgia. I feel I have sometimes been too constrained in some areas and too free in others. Coming from a BSc to an MA is a big change, but it has most definetely been a great experience so far that I hope to continue to learn and be inspired by. I made a list of thoughts as I summarise this unit:
Feedback & Considerations:
Demonstrate a knowledge of a range of individual design methodologies within the wider context of contemporary professional product design practices
Identify theoretical, social, political and economic drivers and agencies informing the discipline
Critically evaluate collaborative team work across a range of design approaches and methodologies
Critique where current individual interest is located within the wider context of contemporary professional product design practices
