What is the influence of gender and identity on crafts? Gender and craft are rooted together in the history of traditional design practices. With gender being defined as constructed social roles that fit society, this, in turn, has an effect on the ways that craft pieces are constructed. In the beginning, the decorative arts created by women were identified as lesser art and could not be held in the same category as fine art, which was a male-dominated area. This...
By ignoring the negative impact of paper manufacturing systems, designers are supporting the fourth largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. Paper distribution puts forests at risk which requires a huge amount of energy and produces harmful greenhouse gases. According to the Environmental Paper Network, increasing paper production by 20% within the next 15 years puts resources like water and raw materials at risk while contributing to greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. However, producing recycled paper compared to virgin paper...
Experimental research design is the designing of entire research process based on two sets of variables- independent and dependent variables. In this design, independent variables are manipulated through several treatments and effects of those treatments are analysed. By this, effect of independent variable on dependent variable is obtained. The experimental research design enables gathering of relevant datas that helps us to make better decisions. An efficient experimental research facilitates smooth functioning of entire research process. That is, from writing the...
This report contains the outputs of the previous planning phase which are unchanged and the outputs of this design phase. The process design outputs consist of; A Design failure mode and effects analysis (DFMEA) that was completed with the information currently available to analyze and prioritize the different levels and areas of risk included in the project. Design for manufacturability and assembly is also reviewed. Design verification has ensured that the product is designed according to intentions. The design verification...
Abstract This paper explores four published articles that discuss the ethical controversy presented around the subject of designer babies. With this in mind, designer babies have led to a world in which we need to discuss if regulations should be put in place, if individuals should be able to use genetic modification for something as little as choosing the gender of future offspring, and whether or not certain impairments are permissible or should be avoided. Moreover, scientist have taken genetic...

Abstract Design thinking is an analytic and creative process in which a person is encouraged to explore, create and prototype models, collect feedback, and rethink. The literature has highlighted some characteristics (e.g., visualization, originality) that a successful design thinker should have. The primary goal of this article is to summarise and synthesize design thinking research in order to (a) better understand its characteristics and processes, as well as the differences between novice and expert design thinkers, and (b) apply what...
“Technology is a Useful Servant but a Dangerous Master” -Christian Lous Lange When technology was introduced to the world, it was like a virus that continued to spread and couldn’t be stopped. Technology is compared to as magic. It has allowed users to exceed humanity according to Einstein. It awed the world with its creations, but it also created a world of monsters taking advantage of all the opportunities that it has to give. It gives people chances, but it...
Introduction Many people who work by themselves face many organizational issues because that person is in charge of his goal and solving the problems that make it complex to achieve this goal and decide the best decision and schedule activities in pursuit of his goal, If someone or more who want to share with him arises immediately the need of new types of decisions to make the atmosphere of the company between the people more healthy and efficiency, We must...
In the design process, beyond the design or product, there is a user or customer that the designer needs to consider and fulfill his /her desires, expectations, and needs since user consideration is the most important filter for the product. Behind the product, there is a user-centered design process, which gives a chance to create a design by communicating. The user-centered design focuses on people to understand them and creates designs that are looking for new solutions for people’s needs....
This essay tries to explore the design principles of new urbanism that Poundbury applied to create a new community and how the Prince of Wales himself had a direct influence on the architectural style. Additionally, this essay touches on the effect of new urban town extensions and the Prince’s general influence on architecture throughout the UK. Prince Charles, renowned for his outspoken opinions and criticism on modernism, has made his views on architecture very public. Some call this ‘unconstitutional’. HRH...
Many people may not know the differences and similarities between Graphic and Industrial Design. Knowing the differences and similarities of these types of design could be beneficial in deciding if you want to choose one of these occupations for a career. Industrial and Graphic design both are types of designs, but industrial involves engineering and manufactured products, while graphic involves visual concepts to communicate ideas that inspire or inform. This paper will give you in depth information on the differences...
“What am I doing with my life?” – is a question that we all face at some point in our lives, some people are fighting for the answers and doing their best to find a solution for an issue that has caused it, others rapidly give up at early stages and flow with it and do nothing, because everything seems to be too complicated and unchangeable.
