Completed as part of DM314: Individual Integrating Project, a class in my 3rd year at the University of Strathclyde. Module aim: "To develop design and manufacturing project based skills... and to provide practice in the application of engineering, manufacture and design principles".
My methodology for an innovative and challenging product design was based around a simple and clean (Scandinavian-based) aesthetic inspired by the above persona and moodboard; a technical engineering design that is robust and efficient; and a usable product that requires little-to-no prior experience to use on a daily basis.
The design and technical layout of the bread maker was determined by the target market and accompanying research illustrate above. The key functionality and description of the breadmaker is stated... "To provide the target user/market with a breadmaker for traditional-styled loaves and breads at the quality standard of a bakery; including freshness, taste and shape."
The developed concepts featured unique elements which would distinguish the concept from current market products. The functionality and usability of this concept is based around a 6.8" display and three dials situated to the right of the model. This form of input improves the user friendliness and represents an innovative approach to current bread maker interfaces.
