The foundation of this project, which was started in 2016 as part of a research minor, is built around the idea of research through design. What this means is that at the base of the research lie two questions: a research question with a broad scope that we want answered and a design question through which the research question might be answered. In this specific project, the questions were as follows:
Research question: How can existing photocamera-designs be of guidance when designing a new product that is modern and innovative, but that also provides ease of use and appeal through recognisability?
The corresponding design question: How does the design of a photocamera, that fits well into the current market for amateur photographers, look when it is designed to be new and innovative, but also to appeal to users in terms of design and use?
This project was a joint project. It was carried out by myself and a fellow student, who you can find here.
