In order to design well I often needed to do research. At the beginning of the year I just simply searched for general things like what competition is out now or more information about aspects that didn’t really that much for my designs. However while working on the project and assignments I started to be able to identify which things I could research further to have improve my concepts beside the most obvious things that clearly prevent a person from working further. For example instead of just researching how a vibration motor would work in a certain design, I would now also search for what kind of effects a vibration has on people in order to make sure the product would be how I wanted it to be or better yet trigger a better idea or improve.
