Post B Group project reflection

 

 

Each of the different disciplines of designers, not only in their professional design is crucial, but also occupy a different important position in various fields. When we first class, we mixed three different design disciplines which are product design, fashion design and visual communication to create one subject which is caddie design. Each of the various professional designers has different skills. Such as product designer more focus on the caddie design, fashion designer more focuses on the surface and visual communication more concentrate on the used poster or something to make people understand. For how to solve the problem of food waste, we need a variety of different angles to consider. Different professional designers have different design concepts and ideas. Also, different designers have different skills. Combine a variety of different ideas and expertise, through constant discussion and improvement; we try the best way to design a perfect design.

For why is it important to include designers in the management of organic waste?Because designer always focuses on how to make people easy to understand their design. How to make people interested in the management of organic waste. The designer will try a lot of ways to change the boring design. ” The role of the designer has been to translate and convey the value of the business philosophy to the consumer.” (Ravi Sawhney, 2010).

Design Thinking is a methodology used by designers to solve complex problems and to help designer find satisfactory solutions for clients. A design mentality is not the focus of the problem; it is the solution focused, action oriented to create a better future. Design thinking draws on logic, imagination, intuition, and system reasoning to explore what is possible and to create expected results that are beneficial to the end user (customer).
This framework integrates classic creative problem solving (CPS) with art and design methods.

Design thinking provides a structured framework for understanding and pursuing innovative ways that contribute to the organic growth and increase the real value to your customers.

Design thinking is a way of thinking, a way of looking at problems and finding creative solutions that may be ignored by purely analytical solutions. In practice, it is supported by processes and tools to help you develop innovative ideas through this thinking process. In some ways, it is similar to the understanding of the system in a variety of factors linked to each other there is a bigger picture thinking. How to changing systems this problem. “ I remember when I was studying systems thinking and tried to model systems, we would approach it from a level of detachment. We will start off with what may be the obvious issue we are focusing on and then draw a bigger and bigger circle to understand what may be the other factors that influence the outcome that may not be immediately apparent. The intent is to identify all the relevant factors and so identify the whole system. There is a certain amount of work to try to determine the relationship and run models to see how we may optimise the system towards the desired outcome.” (Wynthina Goh, 2014).

One day waste audit

WechatIMG1 4.jpeg

An ordinary Sunday. Due to verdure, diver with three friends go to central coast. We afraid diver too far, we will be hungry on the way. So we chose go to seven eleven to buy some snacks. I opened chips package which Ate two pieces because of have a little drowsiness in the car. When I woke up, the chips were already drop in carpet. I’m sorry I wasted most of chips. We spend one-hour diver to central coast but we just stay 20 minutes. Because of the environment was so dark, we can not see anything. We waste a lot of times. When we come back home the time was 5:00 am. When we woke up, the time was 12:00 pm. We had lunch together which saved the waste of a breakfast. Afternoon I need write blog for lab b course. But it need write down whole day waste. So when I write the blog, I also play with phone game. I thing I was waste the electricity about phone and computer’s screen. I was so hungry because I just ate one meal so I chose eat hot pot for dinner with friends. When we finished dinner I think the hot pot was one of the most likely causes of food waste. Because we need prepare a lot of the foods what is meats, vegetables, round mass of foods and so on. I waste a lot of corns. Because I really like eat corn, so I prepared a lot of coins. I overestimated my appetite, resulting in unnecessary waste. Because we rarely do meals at home, so the rest of the food we are thrown in the trash.

I choose the corn.

Corn come from grass family. Corn seed or kernel need planted in soil which should planted in one or two inch, it pullulated in 5 to 12 days. After the seed burgeoned which grew a main root and began to build the first leafs, when these leafs grow it look like grass. With corn grows, it grows into thick, fibrous stems and many flay, pointed leafs. As it grows, corn develops a thick, fibrous stalk and many flat, pointed leaves. According to the climate and species, stalk can grow up to 15 feet. The roots of each plant grow 3 to 5 feet and extend to each side of the stalk about 1 foot. Some of the roots develop on the ground. These are called ‘prop roots’, which act as naturally supports for tall stalks.

With the coming of spring, corn cobs are an ideal fertilizer seed. Make one of all-natural containers, merely need to cut into 2 “or 3” length of the corncob. Then use a sharp pocketknife to cut out the inside of each section, leaving only a thin layer of bottom. Fill corn cobs with fertilizer and then plant your seed. When the shoots grow big enough to assign a permanent place in the garden. As long as the opening of each cylinder closed end, and plant all possessions. The corn cob will timely decomposition and nutrients back to soil. will be timely decomposition and nutrients back to the soil.

About the canapé audit at the UTS book launch. Firstly, I think it so nice, they made the food look so pretty. We talk and go around look at the food. But I think it have a little waste food problem. Because many people want try the food and then food was made to be a mess, causing other people do not want touch the rest of the food. The guest was polite and poured a lot of wine and juice on the table for people who was come, but because of uncertainty and people’s preferences. A lot of drinks were wasted.
