Learning Goal: I’m working on a design discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Forum 1 – Poor Design of Physical Product Full participation in the forums consists of two parts:(1) an original post to the forum and(2) rating/liking other student’s original posts and peer reviewing (via a response) 3 posts.Original Post: Review the Topic 2 presentation slides. Find an example of poor design in a physical product that you have personally used or seen (no software or web sites allowed here). Use the EXACT format below:Subject Heading: Include the product name in the subject line of your post.In the body of the post:Design Issue: Describe the design issue.Violations of Design Principles and Usability Goals: Explain which design principle(s) and/or usability goal(s) it violates (be explicit!).

The students must show that they master all concepts
learned during the course. Applying the methodology of
Material Driven Design for Sustainability (MDDS), the
students will have to foster the research on the material
chosen for the mid-term, and apply it for the problem to
solve and the future from ten years from now. They will be
asked to explore whether the material could be part of a
piece of clothing or fashion complement, for a luxury
brand. Also, the students will have to develop a
communication campaign to promote the sustainability
and innovation of their proposal.
This pdf document should contain the following parts:
1. Introduction: Material research. Explain the material
proposes: Composition. Technical and experiential
characterization in order to understand the material.
Circularity of the material. Value. Hands-on
2. Contextualize the problem to be solved
3. Explain future scenarios already thought.
4. Creating materials experience vision. The material
and product design should be designed for
biodegradability, recycling or disassembly. Explain strengths and weaknesses of the materials. Results
5. Product development. To find the dialogue between
material, function and form, where the product starts
taking form. Think about the digital manufacturing.
6. Sustainable communication strategy.
*Sustainable Communication strategy. Determine a
strategy following the philosophy and values of the luxury
company. It should be aligned with circular economy and
with the different Omnichannels.
The essay should include traditional as well as nano materials, new ones and unusual.
This assessment consists of two essays. first one around 300 words, second around 500 words.
The first essay is an answer to the reflective learning
question “how do you intend to use design thinking
(mindset, methodology) to your professional career?
The second essay is an extension (last step) of the
design thinking project. You should describe a concept
in a narrative way, using storytelling techniques. See
also the Design Thinking Project Workbook and session
Also, presentation has to be done. The presentation resumes the outcomes of the Design
Thinking Project as explained in session 4, and the
Design Thinking Project Workbook: Challenge framing,
Insight statement, 25 ideas, and Prototyping plan.
1. Why are there trade-offs in choosing a team’s size and level of diversity?
2. What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of co-location? Are there some types of projects for which “virtual teams” are inappropriate?
3. What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of a parallel development process? What obstacles might a firm face in attempting to adopt a parallel process?
The Paper will begin with a history of Oakland Parks briefly pre 1960’s but mainly post 1960’s. It is important to briefly look at the current state of Oakland parks. It is important to go over the politics of parks and how it influences the design/creation of said parks.
ARTICLE PROVIDED HERE: https://oaklandside.org/2021/11/26/oakland-parks-greenspace-equity/
The park will then take a closer look at 2 different cases where participatory design was used in the development of parks in Oakland (Union Point Park & Lafayette Square Park). Using these 2 examples as well the articles provided the paper will then critique/analyze the model of participatory design as well as the social aspects tied to it. create some theories and speculative solutions to answer the question of how can we improve participatory design and use it to improve the status of parks.
