ANALYSING PROBLEM & OPORTUNITIES


We started in the teams of three in a task to research given us problems and topics.  Each team was given different topic in my case it was “Economy” and “Phone chargers”

We were asked to design posters based on our research





After research I began to form first ideas behind my design.


PROTOTYPING

PROJECT RESULTS


Shovel made out of copper/steel pipe made with tool available at home. Tool can be manufactured on the bigger scale by local communities. By purchasing big amounts of copper or steel pipes. Pipes can be cut to fewer smaller pieces, carved to shape and sold on the market for higher price bringin profit. Shovel was hand made with easy available tools. Due to its shape shovel is strong enough for any garden work.
