"Swap concepts with a classmate and develop their design to a manufacturing level"
I received this conceptual design from my classmate and friend Mr. Joe MacKechnie and optimised it for practicality and manufacturability. I reduced the size to be more comfortable and selected optimal materials for lightweight but robust delph. I used injection moulding criteria to guide the final geometry of the dish.
I also created a business model for the product, aiming it at pop-up bars offering food to accompany drinks, but limited in space and seating.
Taking on someone else's design (and letting go of my own) was a valuable learning experience, it allowed me to separate myself from personal bias and look more objectively at the development of a product.
