Five Unique Razors and Personas
The project brief required five different designs for a razor handle to be submitted. The final handle was to be sketched, prototyped with clay or other materials and then 3D printed.
Below: Many iterations of a razor are possible. The form, style and feel for the handle could have been developed with many different outcomes.
Five different personas where created to provide my design process with a direction oriented towards user needs and preferences.
Below: moodboards where created to illustrate different personalities and preferred colour palettes. Personas where loosely based on actual acquaintances, friends and family.
The second portion of the project was to create physical models to scale of the razors. I used Super Sculpey, a professional modeling clay, to create the models.
To complete the project, we were assigned task of refining one of the five designs and creating a 3D printed prototype that is able to attach to an existing commercial razor head.
