Unit 1 – Toiletries Design 10 weeks
Unit Overview
Focus Area: Packaging and Promotional
Project Work: Design and produce an innovative range of toiletry products. Make a prototype of one of the items in the range and
include packaging and a point of sale display. Consider ergonomics and anthropometrics in the design.
Student Documentation: Design portfolio that includes research, evaluation of research, rendered product sketches, experimentation
and testing, production plan and final evaluation.
A student:
5.1.1 analyses and applies a range of design concepts and processes.
5.1.2 applies and justifies an appropriate process of design when developing design ideas and solutions.
5.4.1 develops and evaluates innovative, enterprising and creative design ideas and solutions.
5.5.1 uses appropriate techniques when communicating design ideas and solutions to a range of audiences.
5.6.1 selects and applies management strategies when developing design solutions.
5.6.3 selects and uses a range of technologies competently in the development and management of quality design solutions.
Assessment for learning and student feedback
Students will provide evidence of learning through class activities; the teacher will provide oral feedback to students continuously.
The teacher will provide written feedback on student research, design documentation and final products.
The teacher will provide oral feedback to students individually on their design ideas, final design and choice of materials for production.
The teacher will provide oral feedback to students throughout the production process.
