Design Appreciation

Well Designed products.This chopping board has a hole making it easier to store and carry around.

This fan do not have any blades, making it safer to use.

Poorly designed products.

This refrigerator has 2 handles on both sides some people might not know which side to open and think its stuck.

This tooth paste has a pin thats hard to find and people might not be able to find it to unseal it.


(Shape Borrowing)
Shape Borrowing is useful when designing as it helps to make ordinary objects become unique.
It is helpful in making new designs as it is inspired by shapes that are found everywhere and using them to design ordinary objects.


Substitute: We can make improvements on the ideas made.

Combine: If we combine ideas we can either find a new use for the idea or make the design more attractive.

Adapt: Changing the nature or appearance of the original idea.

Modify: Changing the way we work on the idea might lead us into coming up with different end product.

Purpose: Working on the idea if we can work the idea towards a different purpose.

Eliminate: Getting different end products might be possible if we eliminate some parts of the original idea.
