New technologies have changed society in such a way that we can’t do without them anymore and design that comes with it is more important then ever before. The success of a modern day product is decided by it’s functioning aswell as by it’s design. For me as a designer this brings a lot of opportunities and that is why I look forward to the future. I always loved technology and to be a part of the development of innovative products is my goal. Preferably with my own company on my own way.
Project Communities showed me how to make your ideas reality, to be a teamworker and to communicate with your client.
Make your ideas reality:
Learning about crowdsourcing and funding was very interesting. These inspiring concepts make it possible to get solutions and development costs from people all over the world. A quick look on Kickstarter shows us that if your idea appeals to the internet audience you will be able to get the money you need for development. Promotion and feedback included.
It is important to work with people. You can’t do everything by yourself. To do this properly you need to be open for the others in the team. Listen what ideas a person has. Mostly all the creativity and work of everybody combined makes the end product more of a success.
Communication with the client
Our client was Solidaridad. To have a client really makes you think you are doing an important job. Just like in a real company. I think this was a perfect way to learn us how to communicate with such parties. You need to know the wishes of the client and the client needs to know what you are capable of hence the end result will be satisfactory.
The project was confusing at first but it became clearer along the way. I enjoyed working as part of group 4.
