3S Urban Cycling Project.
In this unit the brief is to design and development an innovative product or products based on one or more of the 3 key areas of focus for urban cycling today. Safety, Security, Storage. My product must consider the following points –
- Age group of the users (stakeholders)
- User needs, user centred design (stakeholders)
- The manufacturing process (stakeholders)
- The materials used.
To begin my research I asked a small selection of people who cycle to answer a number of simple questions.
I have used this information to inform to initial research
Icreated a number of personas depicting potential customers for my product. By understanding my customers I will be able to create a user centred design and hopefully a better product.
With all these personas reoccurring issues which seem to be predominant are safe and secure storage and visibility on the road. I will use this knowledge to inform my brief.
