Summary

The journey that an idea for a product takes can vary dramatically depending on the research and testing methods used. This four-topic unit covers different enterprise opportunities as well as the post product realisation processes of branding and marketing in the modern digital age. Students will learn how to conduct a feasibility study to gauge a products potential and why it is vital in a products success. The unit culminates by looking at the many forms of design communication and suggests which may be better for any given task.
