I have recently began teaching product design and I am looking for some help choosing good, relevant projects for my 2nd year students. I am looking for products which incorporate a nice balance of aesthetics, usability and ergonomics. This project will probably be the centrepiece of their work placement portfolio, so I need concepts that will impress potential employers. Bare in mind they are only 2nd years so their prototyping and rendering skills are not that strong yet.
Any thoughts on a good brief?
Thanks in advance
