For the launch event of P3Lab, beginning december, we need a brochure with a resume of information of P3Lab: logo, contact details, website, what is P3Lab about? To keep it in the creative area (which we are in) we want an infographic with drawings rather than a leaflet with all text.
We are thinking of a square form, foldable, about 20cm-20cm but it can be smaller or also a different form, but should be standard printing format since we need to have about 500 ex. printed in the first stage.
We want to have our desing loop with the 4 areas (1.Design and Simulation - 2.Prototyping - 3.Polymer Processing - 4.Pre-compliance testing) explained using a cartoon guy with a product that he wants to develop. For product we are thinking of an Alarm Clock (or maybe a vacuum cleaner as alternative). It can be a rather funny folder and all adults have to understand the basics of P3Lab looking at it.
For the idea: please look at the bottem video on this website: http://fablab.nl/the-fablab/
People have to understand that we can do the whole loop: from idea to final product. But that they are also welcome in P3Lab for just one part of the design loop. So they can drop in on each item of the loop or only complete half the loop if they want.
Datos a incluir en la infografía
For information all basic information you can look on: http://www.p3lab.ugent.be or http://www.ugent.be/p3lab.
Information that needs to be on (no numbers or graphs, but drawings):
- the logo of P3Lab in big (attached)
- our slogan: 'Print and Proof your Product'
- maybe very brief some lines of explanation of what P3Lab is (see website and description given above)
- the other logo's of university and funding agencies in smaller on the back (attached)
- website link and contact email firstname.lastname@example.org
- exact address in Technologiepark, Zwijnaarde (see website with contact details)
- the 3 key university partners with name and contact details (http://www.ugent.be/p3lab/en/partners)
- the drawing of our design loop with the 4 items (attached)
- Explanation of our 4-item-loop using a cartoon and an alarm clock: development from the old days alarm clock, over a basic alarm clock to maybe a daylight or other fancy alarm clock. And lot of interaction between the different development stages in the design-loop (it is not a linear proces with one start and one finish cause you sometimes need to take a step back again to go a little more forward).
So the cartoon guy first makes a simulation (finite element) of the clock he wants (maybe he is always late for work and therefore he wants to have a good nice alarm clock....). After that he makes a first design drawing on his pc. (1 = simulation and design). Then he goes to the protolab to make a first, quick, simple prototype, 3D printer/lasercutter use and custom-made. (2 = prototyping). He then asks some people what they think (user experience testing) and he does some first test with his alarm clock (4 = pre compliance testing): does it work, does it break if it falls (maybe some of his colleagues drop it and it brakes). Then he makes some new prototypes (small series = 3'), maybe bigger, integrates all necessary electronics and also more detailed with some nice colours and so. He does some testings again (4) (can it stand heat? Does it interfere with other electronic devices in the bedroom?). And when he is happy with the result he puts in in production (3 = polymer production). Maybe suddenly his colleagues also want to have this kind of alarm clock and he starts producing them in large amounts. To be able to sell them he needs to be sure he follows the laws for this kind of product, so he need a CE label (pre-compliance testing leads to getting CE label to get it approved in lot of countries for selling).
- with each item maybe there can be some bullet points of different infrastructure we have to do this step in the cycle (http://www.ugent.be/p3lab/en/test-i…ucture.htm)
Elementos para incluir en la infografía
No graphics, but drawings.
- cartoon guy, colleagues of this guy judging his prototype
- the idea of making an alarm clock
- the simulation and design on his pc
- the prototyping and prototype
- the judging of his colleages
- the small series production in multiple prototypes
- the testing
- the final prototype
- testing in larger scale for selling (EMC electromagnetic compatibility proof? Shake proof?)
- selling of the alarm clock with CE label
Maybe a line 'go back to beginning' when his colleagues break his first prototype.
And a line saying 'you can also start here' (pointing in middle of the loop) so that people know we do the whole loop but also one part if they wish.
It must also be clear that sometimes, in developing a product, you have to go hence and forth in de design-loop: do prototyping, test and come back to prototyping some more and testing of the prototypes again. So please use lines going hence and forth describing the interaction between the steps.
This infographic is for the university so this work is taken up on working hours (9am-6 pm Belgian time). So I probably won't respond on weekends and official holidays, but further I try to correspond as much as possible.
