Class  Year 10 (ages 15-16)

'Enjoy and Learn' Creative Material Design (designs materials, models, poster etc. for companies especially aimed at children)

Enterprise

We did some research into 'What is a Material Design company?' We looked at some websites for these kinds of companies.

Ways-in

We developed our own corporate identity. We made some designs to show clients as promotional materials. We mostly focused on things that we thought would get the attention of children.

Building the 'Frame'

The 'client' came to our office and explained the situation. He was a Toy Manufacturer. He urgently needed designs for a new range of superheroes (posters, models, painting books etc.) for the New Year. His own company had lost all their own designs in a fire - and he needed new designs within two weeks.

Introducing the 'client' and the 'commission'

We did some research into superheroes (e.g.'Spider-Man'). We thought what kind of superhero we would like to be. In groups, we brainstormed ideas for new superheroes - using as a starting point, some burnt remains of the original designs which the client had rescued from the fire. Groups prepared models and drawings for a range of merchandise

 

Fulfilling the 'commission'

Finally, all the plans prepared by the enterprise were sent to the client, who confirmed that the company had won the contract to produce the 'superheroes' range.
