Industrial Design Faculty Explain Holiday Product Design

As much as consumers felt the effects of supply chain backlogs during this year’s holiday season, industrial designers and entire holiday merchandise teams are dealing with them, too. Three School of Industrial Design faculty join colleagues from the Scheller College of Business to explain how seasonal products are made and the results of a holiday product design cycle challenged by a pandemic and resulting complications.

Exploration of ideas and prototypes of the designs developed by industrial design students, with the help of occupational therapists, using rapid prototyping tech to create a 3-D printed custom assistive writing tool.

Industrial Design & Rapid Prototyping Tech

The Co-creation of Assistive Tech

Georgia Tech’s School of Industrial Design distinguishes itself through its commitment to the end-user and its multidisciplinary approach to problem-solving. Through rapid prototype iteration and a focus on people, industrial design students gain valuable practice in empathetic design that was put to the challenge to truly change one woman’s life.

In a collaborative effort to improve the user experience for an end-user, School of Industrial Design’s Assistant Professor Leila Aflatoony, Professor Jon Sanford, and Ph.D. student and CIDI research scientist Su Jin (Susan) Lee partnered with students and occupational therapists to explore rapid prototyping methods in the creation of custom tech solutions for users with mobility impairments.
