After thorough market research on both the brief, and the target market I began to work on some concept sketches. For this I used the market research as inspiration, I also printed off a copy of interior components and produced 1:1 scale concept designs. This worked well and allowed me to realise the sized of the glue gun I was creating.
Below we see some of the quick concept sketches I created:
After looking at these concept sketches as well as the 1:1 scale drawings I will narrow them down before producing some detailed three dimensional sketches and several quick blue foam models.
I will then look to render these sketches, and look at several colour schemes. These will be heavily influenced by the environment which it will be used.
