Had a tutorial with Richard Chipps today to discuss the packaging, mainly because I wasn’t sure how to manufacture it, because companies don’t want to talk to students who aren’t actually going to put things into production. Here is how my design differed from the proposed final:
The window is now shaped, because I didn’t realise that it didn’t have to be square, apparently it’s just as easy to cut a shape as it is a square during the production process. I am going to do two finals, one in cardboard and one in metal. The handles are rounder and smoother in keeping with the overall feel of the design and Gillette brand.
