Module // Design Practice 1

Industrial Design & Technology BA and Product Design & Technology BSc

Year 1 Design Practice 1 module to design and prototype a DAB Radio out of blue foam

This module looks at form. The students choose from the given form choices of rugged or streamlined, and design a DAB radio to fit their chosen form. They must take into consideration the internal parts of the radio such as the speaker and PCB, and create a folio of sketches which shows their form analysis and sketch journey of how they came to reach their final DAB radio design. The students also make blue foam prototypes as part of their design process, some examples are shown below.

Prototypes designed by:
