Golf Ball Stencil Product Design Unit Overview

Design Brief

The school's students regularly compete with other schools in golf. A parent has donated $500 to buy personalised golf flags, bag tags, and team logo golf balls. The coach has asked if the Design Communication 2 class could design a logo for the team and create a stencil of the team mascots for marking the golf balls. Similar to this idea: http://www.customgolftags.com/

Problem

So what does the class need to Design and Produce for IASAS Golf?

  • Product to hold golf ball as stencil is applied,
  • Simplified Logo for each team

Research

Research existing golf ball stencils…see how other people make them. The Design Brief has 1 example, try to find more.

How will you apply a logo to a curved surface without ‘warping it’?

Design

Based on your research and the skills that you learned last semester, hand sketch 3 different ideas for:

  • Product to hold golf ball as stencil is applied,
  • Simplified Logo for each team

Develop

Choose an idea and create a 3D model of it using CAD software.

Make

Print your developed designs and Test. Repeat Develop and Make stages until satisfied with the results

Test & Evaluate

Reflect on the design and make process for this project – what can you learn from the experience and use to improve for next time.
