1.1.1 The colour of my mirror is pink. I have
chosen this colour as it fits with my target
maket of young to teenage girls.
1.2.1 The shape of my mirror is bold and striking. I
took inspiration from Art Deco and it has two
pannels of the same shape, much like images of
an Art Deco style.
1.3.1 The style of my mirror comes from my research
on Art Nouveau and Art Deco. I have mainly
focused on Art Deco with my geometric lines.
1.4.1 The texture of my mirror is smooth because of
the acrylic I'm using.
1.5 Target Market
1.5.1 My target market is young girls to teenagers. I have based
my design around this age group by using a pink colour
scheme and by taking inspiration from Art Deco with its
bold geometric lines.
2.1 The function of my mirror is for my
target market to store objects like
makeup brushes and pencils as well as
being a handy mirror for the bedroom.
2.2 My product is multi-functional because it has a storage area as
well as being a mirror. I have included the storage area because it
will add more value to my product as it's a multi-functional mirror
it was also make my product more unique and stand out more in
shops against the other mirrors.
2.3 Materials and Colour
2.3.1 I am using acrylic as my material. This will leave a shiny, smooth finish that will look smart and
sophisticated. Acrylic is also a cheap product and this will help my manufacturing costs. however
it will stand out for my target market. Although my colour doesn't come from Art Deco the
shaping of my mirror does and this helps balance the older styles with more current.
3.1 The cost of my product is
£8 and I will be selling
my product at £28
3.2 I have priced my product at £28 as it is
around four times the price of
manufacturing and then I added extra
a few pounds as it is a multi-functional
3.3 The approximate price of the acrylic will be around £5
and then I am also paying for the rods and mirror so it
will roughly cost £8 to make.
4.1 When I am manufacturing my product I will be using the
laser cutter and line bending. When it's made on mass
production all the measurements will be the same
4.2 I will try and make my
manufacturing as eco friendly as
possible by trying to save acrylic.
22.214.171.124 The packaging for my mirror will be as eco-friendly as
possible, so I will be using recycled cardboard with an
image transferred onto it. Inside the box I will have
polystyrene fillers, cardboard inserts and bubble wrap.
This is to protect my product as it vulnerable.
5 Environmental/Moral/Social Issues
5.1 To make this product more environmentally friendly I will be
seding any waste back to be re-cycled as well as using the
smallest amount of acrylic possible. Also the acrylic is made
from oils and a substance from plants, oil is non-renewable
and so I must be careful not to use excessive amounts when
5.2 Health and Safety
5.2.1 When making my product I need to be careful on making
sure there isn't any sharp edges on my mirror and that it is
stable and strong enough to stand.
