Having asked all the important questions as part of the design requirements, the designer can now write a design specification. The specification is a list of factors that the design must satisfy. This information can be used when drawing ideas, to ensure that all the clients needs are considered. The designers specification is seen below.

   

1. The desk organiser will store the following equipment;
Pens, pencils, ruler, scissors, glue, paper clips, compass, protractor, calculator, stapler, mobile phone etc....
2. The overall size of the organiser will be 200 X 250 X 200mm
3. The organiser will not be lockable and will be placed on the table / desk top.
4. The organiser will help the client complete tasks such as writing, drawing, stapling, drinking coffee, reading and calculating sums.
5. It will be designed for the clients specific needs.
7. It will cost between five and six pounds to manufacture.

At this point other points may be added such as;

8. It will be safe to use as it will not have sharp edges. It will satisfy British and European safety standards.
9. It will be made from recycled material.
10. It will be light but very strong.
11. It will be manufactured in a range of colours.
