Application of Product Design

In Second year, as part of a group, I carried out a module sponsored by the company Sagentia regarding the design of a ski-lock. We designed a lock that doubled as a handle for carrying your ski’s around, as this is somewhat of an awkward task. We went through the entire design process, analysing our design using ergonomics software tool SAMMIE, modelling our final design on CAD and even developing a TV advert. Our design ended up winning the best design of the module.

Skills Obtained

  • Carried out the full design process from concepts to producing a prototype
