The One With The Loves And Hates

Last week in the IPD studios, we had to give a quick presentation to our lecturer. The presentation consisted of 3 images, two of product details that you love and the third of an image that you hate. Here are the images that I used

LOVE:This is an image of my last mobile phone. The detail that I like on the phone is the material that has been used. It has a rubbery feel to it which is nice to touch and hold. In general, it has a very nice aesthetic which is really nice to look at and is completely different to any other mobile I have seen. I just had to have it!

Love:This is my current DVD player and the detail which I love on this is the interaction with the skip button. Instead of having a button to fast-forward and rewind there is this dial. Basically, you turn the dial as far as you want depending on how far you want to go. It's alot more interesting than just pressing a button!!

Hate:This is a lamp from my flat. What I really despise about it is the positioning of the on/off switch. It's hidden under the shade and to turn it on or off you have to squeeze your hand up the lamp and fiddle around to try and find the switch. It's just such an awkward place to put a switch!

This got me thinking about all the smaller little details and interactions to consider on my printer project.
