<p>The master degree thesis project, at Halmstad University, was made in cooperation with Hunter Fan, one of the leading fan companies on the American market. Hunter Fan has expressed a desire to become more successful in Europe which gave birth to this assignment. Hunter Fan wanted the team to adapt Hunter’s ceiling fan technology to a ceiling fan for the Scandinavian market. </p><p>The design team put together a tailor made design process based on knowledge achieved from lectures and literature studies, and experience from working with the design process, to best accomplish the assignment. The problem was to re-design a ceiling fan but the team attacked the problem like; how to circulate the air in a room to be able to get a more innovative and visionary result.</p><p>The team started off with a short initial brainstorming before they moved into the analysis and research phase, where they performed a thorough examination about the company, the market, the product, the user, lighting, trends etc. </p><p>A survey was composed for both people who own a ceiling fan and people who does not. Most survey answers expressed that the light function was a lot more used than the fan function. They bought the fan for its functionality but did not think that their fan was particularly aesthetical attractive. </p><p>Sketching and idea generation were a great part of the project.

Re-design of a portable fan

Ivegren, Erica, Gustafsson, Karin January 2007 (has links)
Abstract This master’s thesis is a project of 20p made in accordance with the requirements set by Halmstad University for a Master’s degree in Technical Product and Productions development. The objectives were to make a conceptual redesign of a portable fan for the American company Hunter Fan. The redesign is intended to be suitable on the Scandinavian market. The methodology and process are mainly based on Ullman’s methodology for product development, in combination with Landqvist’s and Östelin’s design methodology for production development. An optimal design process is rarely identical from project to project; the best parts and tools from the different design methodologies were used as support during the process. The design process in this project started with research within topics suitable to solve the problem definition. Brand research were made to determine Hunter Fan core values and target group, the existing product was analysed to see what could be improved and the market was investigated to learn from competitors. An image board was made to express the values wanted for this project and for communication with people directly involved in the design process. Trends were observed by a visit to the Stockholm Furniture Fair. Further user personas and surveys were made to investigate the Scandinavian consumer’s needs and requirements. This method gave important knowledge of how to design a portable fan suitable for the Scandinavian market. Experts on the subject of matter were interviewed to get understanding of how fan blade works and what alternative safety solutions there are. In the ideation phase, brainstorming and sketching was a big part. Over a hundred idea sketches were made and the ideas were carefully evaluated against collected fact. In the finalization phase, the remaining concepts were refined with methods like mock-up models, CAD and computer renderings. The result is a successful conceptual design of a table fan suitable for the Scandinavian market. Hunter Fan also believes the fan can easily be transformed to the Urban American cities of New York and other large cities. The table fan owns the values of Scandinavian design; a simple uncomplicated design, functional and with an expression of simplicity and modernity. It still owns Hunter Fan core value of high quality. The design easily blends in the carefully decorated Scandinavian home. It is also easy to move, put away and store like the Scandinavian consumer requires. There is a need on the Scandinavian market for a well designed portable fan and the final design of this project fulfill the requirements to be a successful product.

Vilka hinder finns det för företag som vill bedriva upcycle verksamhet? / Which obstacles do companies have to address in an upcycle project?

Johansson, Julia, Olivera Miranda, Micaela January 2022 (has links)
Rapportens syfte är att undersöka de hinder som textilföretag möter på när de bestämmer sig för att integrera upcycling i sin affärsmodell, därför är frågan som studien syftar att svara på “Vilka hinder finns det för företag som vill bedriva upcycle verksamhet?” . Wilson (2016) förklarar upcycle som en omformning av något utan värde till något användbart utan användning av nya råvaror, denna process är en praktisk lösning för att minska produktionen av textilavfall och reducera användning av nya material. För att svara på frågeställningen har data samlats in genom en kvalitativ metod, intervjuer genomfördes med företag involverade i upcycling. Medverkande företag i studien är, Nudie Jeans, Korallen, XV Produktion och Science park Borås. Resultaten visade på att kvalité och material var två viktiga aspekter att ha i åtanke när företag vill börja med upcycling eftersom det främst underlättar designernas arbete vid planering av omdesign. / The purpose of the report is to examine the obstacles that textile companies face when they decide to incorporate upcycling into their business model, therefore the question that the study aims to answer is "What obstacles are there for companies that want to conduct upcycle activities?" . Wilson (2016) explains upcycle as a transformation of something without value into something useful without using new raw materials, this process is a practical solution to reduce the production of textile waste and reduce the use of new materials. To answer the question data has been collected through a qualitative method, interviews were conducted with companies involved in upcycling. The companies involved in the study are, Nudie Jeans, Korallen, XV Produktion and Science park Borås. The results showed that quality and materials were two important aspects to keep in mind when companies want to start upcycling as it mainly facilitates the designers' work when planning redesign.

Redesign av facktidskriften Ingenjören

Hellström, Erika January 2004 (has links)
This degree project contains a theoretical and a practical part about magazine design. Literature aboutthe subject’s typography and magazine design has been studied and put into practice on the professionaljournal Ingenjören. Besides of that a study about the history of magazine typography for the lastfifty years has been done.Typography and other design factors are important for the magazine to be readable and gives at thesame time the magazine an identity of its own, which has become more and more important throughoutthe last decades.The result of this degree project is a new design for Ingenjören, a design that agrees more with howthe journal want to be considered. A new template, a dummy and a manual have been produced. A decisionof a board meeting of Ingenjörsförbundet in September is now what remains for the new design tobecome a reality.

An affordance based framework for information systems evaluation and redesign : A conceptual tool for development of user friendly systems / Ett affordansbaserat ramverk för utvärdering och redesign av informationssystem : Ett konceptuellt verktyg för utveckling av användarvänliga system

Svanberg, Sandra, Widman Börjesson, Sara January 2016 (has links)
Bakgrund Affordanser är ett kraftfullt verktyg för utvärdering och redesign av artefakter, mer specifikt informationssystem. Affordanser innefattar att identifiera vilka handlingsmöjligheter som informationssystem tillhandahåller för användarna. Dock är affordanskonceptet som sådant brett och i dagsläget finns det endas t begränsade affordansbaserade ramverk att tillämpa för design av informationssystem. Där med finns det ett behov att utveckla ett ramverk som specificerar affordanskonceptet för att kunna utvärdera och redesign a informations system. Ramverket bör samtidigt vara brett för att täcka upp för alla potentiella handlingsmöjligheter. Syfte Syftet med studien är att utforma ett affordansbaserat ramverk för utvärdering och redesign av informationssystem, som sedan testas genom en fall studie. Metod Studien bygger på en kvalitativ forskningsstrategi tillsammans med ett konstruktivistiskt perspektiv och en deduktiv ansats. Datainsamlingsmetoder innefattar intervjuer, observationer, samt loggbok. Metoden innefattas också av välgrundad metodutveckling samt en kriteriebaserad utvärderingsstrategi. Teori Teorikapitlet bygger på litteraturstudier av informationssystem, designvetenskap och affordanser. Resultat Det slutgiltiga resultatet bekräftar att affordanser är ett värdefullt verktyg vid utvärdering och redesign av informationssystem. Ramverket som sådant visade sig vara brett vilket resulterade i ett mer specificerat ramverk med riktlinjer för framtida studier.
