Design Brief
A local manufacturer has asked you to create a variety of ideas, for a container to store and transport small items such as jewellery, CDs and trinkets. The storage unit should be based on an Art Deco theme.
 
Design Specification.

1. Write three design requirements of a small Art Dec Container. Include an explanation for each of your requirements.

Example:

Requirement: The small storage container should be designed/manufactured to protect the contents.

Explanation: Protection of the contents is a key design requirement, especially if the contents are expensive or of a sentimental value.
 
 
 
REQUIREMENT 1:
The container should be based on an Art Deco style. Art Deco features and characteristics should be applied.
 
EXPLANATION:
The customer has stipulated that the designs should be in an Art Deco style. To design a container in a different style, would lead to it being rejected by the customer.
 
REQUIREMENT 2:
The container should be transportable, allowing safe and easy carrying of its contents. A handle or wheels will aid transportability.
 
EXPLANATION:
The customer has stated that transportability of the container is a design criteria. If the container is not transportable (handle, wheels, size and weight etc....), it will not fulfil the second criteria outlined by the customer. Wheels or an handle will help in the transport of the container.
 
REQUIREMENT 3:
Good ergonomic design is essential.
 
EXPLANATION:
Ergonomic design is desirable, so that the container can be transported and held comfortably. Good ergonomic design will also help ensure that the container is safe to transport.
 
 
 
MORE POSSIBLE REQUIREMENTS

1. Must be of a thorough/strong construction.
2. It should be possible to manufacture the container in large qualities or to batch produce.
