    Development of a visual brand language and a mobility aid2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Medical technology is a field of work with connection to prevention, diagnosis, monitoring, treatment and care. The company Human care is a well-established company in Sweden with red rollators seen all over Sweden. The product family of Human care has four different units of mobility aid solutions. These are lifting devices, rollators, healthcare beds, and convertible chairs. In common they share the same brand, but they do not have any clear connection to each other when it comes to form, colour and texture.

    In this thesis a visual brand language is developed and created for the company. At the same time, it is implemented and developed on a lifting solution for patient mobility in the healthcare. To find a brand language which should be easier to implement on the products investigations into the brand and products has been done. By trying to find a common ground in the current products the step from creation to implementation of a guideline will be smaller. Further, research has been done in colour psychology, ergonomics, surface textures and forms.

    The result of this thesis is a guideline which the company can use as a base when developing new products. In this thesis, it has been implemented on a lifting device for patient transportation.

    Produktutveckling i stadens tjänst: en explorativ studie om design av souvenirer2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    It is increasingly important for cities to attract visitors, potential new residents and businesses. Jönköping is one of the cities working with place marketing, a strategy that intends to mediate a positive image of the city, in order to accomplish just that.

    People often have a need to preserve the memory of a trip into something tangible. Anyone visiting Jönköping encounters a souvenir choice, much like the one in many other cities. Linked to the idea of positive place marketing, our work aims to investigate how we as product developers can create a product that en¬hances the image of Jönköping based on the thought that all residents are con¬sig¬nors. Accordingly, we develop three different products from the residents' own image of the city.

    Our research questions are:

    Based on the photographs, what image of Jönköping do the ambassadors mediate of their own city?

    As designers, what in Jönköping's history versus the image of Jönköping today, can we seize in order to give products for visitors a sense of authenticity?

    As designers, how can we use knowledge of place branding in the development of souvenirs?

    We performed interviews within three different aspects: history, souvenirs and place branding, all focused on the city of Jönköping. The interviews and a work-shop formed the basis for the further design process.

    This work has resulted in three products: the matchbox Det nya Jönköping i en historisk förpackning, highlights an important part in the city's history and becomes a conversation piece. Lek dig genom Jönköping want to show visitors what the city offers, and distinguish it from others, from the on-site. Detaljerna gör staden is an every¬day object and function can get residents to begin to discover the details of their own city.

    Through the use of knowledge and theories of place branding and souvenirs, we would argue that we have found a way to actually catch the residents' image of the city in a number of products. We also believe that it would be able to apply this type of project in other locations to create more authentic and at the same time innovative souvenirs.

    Konsten att kommunicera ett varumärke grafisk2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Dagens marknad innebär hög konkurrens för företag samt för de nya företag som

    försöker slå sig in. På grund av detta krävs idag väl genomarbetade grafiska profiler

    samt genomtänka strategier för marknadsföring och kommunikation. Vi har under tre

    år på Jönköpings Tekniska Högskola läst informatik, grafisk design och

    webbutveckling och har därför arbetat mycket med ämnen som omfattar detta

    problem.

    Syftet med rapporten är att öka förståelsen för hur man marknadsför och

    kommunicerar ett starkt varumärke i dagens samhälle. De frågeställningar rapporten

    kommer besvara är: ”Vilka metoder är framgångsrika när man ska marknadsföra och

    kommunicera ett mindre svenskt modeföretag på internet med hjälp av en logotyp?”,

    samt delfrågeställningen: ”Finns det speciella arbetssätt för varumärken i digitala

    medier?”. Rapporten syftar till att hjälpa dessa nya modeföretag på internet med saker

    som berör varumärket såsom logotyp, marknadsföring, kommunikation med mera.

    Problemet rapporten fokuserar på att lösa är hur man i dag arbetar med

    marknadsföring av ett varumärke på bästa sätt, framförallt i digitala medier, då vi tror

    att det finns många som inte förstår tyngden av ett starkt och hållbart varumärke.

    Under arbetet kommer inget grafiskt att utföras utan resultatet kommer framställas

    som teori.

    För att kunna presentera ett resultat används en metod som består av en

    surveyundersökning, intervjuer på reklambyråer samt en litteraturstudie.

    Surveyundersökningen är fokuserad till privatpersoners uppfattning av logotyper och

    marknadsföring. Intervjuerna på reklambyråerna ställs samman och kopplas ihop med

    svaren från surveyundersökningen. Litteraturstudien är framtagen för att kunna

    sammanställa ett ramverk med meningsfull teori. Sammanfattningsvis gav metoderna

    information om vad privatpersoner säger gentemot vad teorin påvisar.

    I analysavsnittet och i diskussionen analyseras, tolkas och diskuteras det hur man idag

    marknadsför sig på bästa möjliga vis som en nystartad modebutik på internet. Den

    största slutsatsen av hela arbetet är att grunden till en lyckad marknadsföring av ett

    modeföretag på internet är att kommunicera enhetligt genom hela den grafiska

    profilen samt de digitala medier man väljer att finnas i.

    The Museum of the Future: a sedimentary cloud2017In: Design journal, ISSN 1460-6925, E-ISSN 1756-3062, Vol. 20, no Suppl. 1, p. S3560-S3568Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Taking our cue from the impact of Joseph Kosuth’s 1965 conceptual artwork One and Three Chairs, there has always been one and three museums-the cosmos is the museum of light, the city is the museum of space and given the job of the museum is to indefinitely accumulate time the museum today is the museum of time. In this paper we present a fourth-the museum of the future. The museum and the department store were concurrent designs of industrialization; one-the store-collected the here-and-now and sold it as what-might-become while the other-the museum-collected what-was and projected it as what-we-have-become. However, the manifest crises of the planet illustrate the limits of our capacity to persuade ourselves we can imagine a future in which we want to live, and cast urgency on the long-term design project of being together. And the project of being together in the urban age is driving us to change the entire terrain of thought and action. Where once ideas drove change, change now appears to be split between two projects whose temporal dimensions govern the notion of ‘future’. One is the busy sharing of digital records of the as-found, and counter to this digital archive is the revival of designs of what-might-become illustrated in the boom in digital imagery of fantasy futures. In order to now imagine a future it has become necessary to navigate the competing time frames of the digital archiving of the past and the digital reproduction of the future. But for Jacques Derrida the question of the archive is not a question of the past but a question of the future, the very question of the future, of a response, of a promise and of a responsibility for tomorrow. According to him “the archive-if we want to know what this will have meant we will only know tomorrow.” And Hal Foster disconnects the archive from the museum when he questions “Might visual culture rely on techniques of information to transform a wide range of mediums into a system of image-text-a database of digital terms-an archive without museums?” In this paper we propose this temporal disjuncture-archive and future-can be bridged by the design of what we call the Museum of the Future whose windows open onto the permanent present. The Museum of the Future is not a location for the sentimental accumulation of time in the form of tasteful objects. According to Cedric Price “neither knowledge nor value can be stored and contained in a particular place” therefore “the museum of the future initiates a process of constant revision that assures the contingency and non-solidity of a building”. Following from Price we propose the Museum of the Future is a continuous interior whose form, stretched to compass the cumulous cloud of digital sentimentality and reproduction, functions as a sedimentary layer for our imaginings of increasingly populous and proximate future relations.

    CONCEPT FOR A PORTABLE ASSISTIVE LIFTING SEAT2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project consists of the design of a concept for a portable assistive seat in collaboration with IKEA. The aim of the project is to create a solution that fits within the Omtänksam family of products and shares the company’s values of what is so-called Democratic Design:

    Form - Quality - Low Price - Function – Sustainability

    The Omtänksam Family is focused on products that can help the elderly to have a more comfortable life while blending with the home environment. A portable assistive Lifting Seat is a real need for many people that require some extra help when standing up or sitting down. The main goal of this project is to design a cheap, safe, simple and light product that can assist people for reducing the effort that is required from them. The product must be comfortable, easy to transport and friendly to interact with. Considering a mass manufacturing perspective is very important to meet the previously formulated requirements. The force that the assistive seat releases must keep performing efficiently during the product service life. A locking system must be provided for avoiding the lifting force to act when the user is sitting, assisting only when it is demanded. This Thesis describes the process of designing a concept for a Portable AssistiveLifting Seat involving different areas such as ergonomics, semantics, manufacturing, mechanical engineering and materials science. The design approach in this case is driven by the Democratic Design Principles combining the human-centered design with a market perspective. The result takes advantage of form and material for avoiding the need for any extra lifting mechanism. This solution is way simpler than any other one existing in the market and it integrates the solution for many different problems in one single piece. This simplification of the problem allows reducing the production cost and helps to meet the intended requirements creating an innovative product for the market.

    Design of a Ready Meal Packaging for Elderly People2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this project was to develop a new packaging concept for elderly people, in the form of ready meals tray, by focusing on the user needs and using industrial design methodology. It was intended to be easy to open even for rheumatics, and thought for use in elderly care and private use for the alimentary industry.

    Industrial design methods used include design brief, work breakdown structure, functional analysis, personas, mood boards, mind map, ideation sketching and modeling, among others. From the information gathered during the research phase, some areas of exploring were defined to conduce the ideation phase and then combine and narrow down the ideas in the final development stage.

    The final result presented in this report is a product family of paperboard and fiber packages in form of ready meals trays for elderly use, easy to open and based on rounded and organic forms to make them nicer to eat from and provide an enjoyable meal experience to the users. The use of natural materials makes these packagings environmentally friendly, creating great market opportunities facing the plastic products.

    BILDPRODUKTION MED BARNS LÄRANDE I FOKUS2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med examensarbetet är att skapa kunskap och reflektion för mellanstadiebarn för att bidra till folkbildning i samhället och hjälpa till i arbetet med att göra Jönköpings läns museum till nästa generations museum samt Sveriges bästa museum. För att kunna skapa kunskap och reflektion har bilder av miljöer från 1600-talets Visingsborg tagits fram och kombinerats med bilder från nutiden. Allt är framtaget med hänsyn till mellanstadiebarnen och museets olika krav. För att ta fram de olika kraven har museets personal intervjuats. För att få en bild över hur mellanstadiebarn fungerar och hur de tar till sig kunskap har litteratur studerats, en intervju har gjorts med en mellanstadieklass samt en intervju med en bildpedagog.  

    I resultatet framgår att barn attraheras av bildteorier vilka innebär hur en bild bör utformas för att den ska bli intressant. De lär sig och reflekterar när de kan associera till saker, när det framkommer något som är tidigare bekant och om de är intresserade av att lära sig och reflektera. Alltså har bilderna anpassats efter barnens intressen och vad de redan sedan tidigare känner till. I andra delen av arbetet behandlas hur ett kravarbete fungerar och hur man bäst bör arbeta gentemot en uppdragsgivare. I kravarbetet har kravspecifikationen haft en central roll och har varit ett bra hjälpmedel och diskussionsunderlag under arbetets gång. Konsekvenserna av resultatet är att det fungerar bra så länge man arbetar behovsbaserat och fokuserar på målgruppen. För att kunna uppfylla en uppdragsgivares krav är ett nära samarbete viktigt och att sitta på arbetsplatsen är till en fördel vid snabba beslut och avstämningar.

    Arbetets begränsningar är att jag enbart har tagit fram bilder till området bakom välvda väggen, utformade efter mellanstadium elever. Bilderna behandlar enbart motiv från nutiden och 1600-talet. De nutida bilderna är framställda med fotografier. 1600-talsbilderna är framställda med hjälp av 3D teknik och fotomontage.

    The aim of the project is to create knowledge and reflection for middle school children to contribute to public education in the community and help in efforts to make the Jönköping County Museum of next-generation museum as well as Sweden's best museum. In order to create knowledge and reflection has pictures of environments from the 1600s Visingsborg been developed and combined with images from the present. Everything is designed with thoughts of the middle school children and the museum's various requirements. In order to produce the different requirements have I interviewed the museum staff. To get a picture of how middle school children work and how they assimilate knowledge, literature studied, an interview was made with a middle class and an interview with an art teacher.

    The results show that children are attracted by the image theories which means how an image should be designed to make it interesting. They learn and reflect when they can associate to things, when it emerges something that is previously known, and if they are interested to learn and reflect. Thus, the images have been adapted for children's interests and what they are already previously known. In the second part of the work dealt with how the demands of work functions and how best should work towards a client.

    The requirements specification work has played a central role and has been a good tool and basis for discussion during the work. The consequences of the result is that it works fine as long as you work needs-based and focuses on the target audience. In order to meet the clients' demands close cooperation is important and to sit in the workplace is an advantage when quick decisions and reconciliations. Work limitations is that I only have developed images of the area behind the curved wall, designed for middle school students. The images deal exclusively designs from the present and the 1600s. The contemporary images produced with photographs. 1600's of pictures are produced using 3D technology, and photomontages.

    Keywords: Jönköping County Museum, picture production, 3D design, requirements management, requirements specification, education, middle school, photo theories.

    Framtagning av justerbara möbelben2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten omfattar ett examensarbete utfört på Tekniska högskolan i Jönköping av tvåkandidatstudenter inom produktutveckling. Examensarbetet är ett uppdrag frånuppdragsgivaren Prettypegs, vilket är ett svenskt företag som designar utbytbara möbelben.Möbelbenen kan fästas på möbler från olika leverantörer, som exempelvis IKEA. Prettypegsvision är att möbelbenen ska bidra med stil och ett personligare uttryck till hemmet. Företagethar sedan tidigare inga produkter inom segmentet kök och badrum och vill nu utvidga derassortiment. En utmaning som företaget ställs inför vid produktframtagning är att ta framprodukter som är såväl smarta som lättapplicerade och dessutom behagar flera olikamöbelsorter. När projektgruppen ska ta fram designförslag på möbelben till kök och badrumtillkommer ytterligare problem som exempelvis en justerbar funktion.

    Studiens syfte var att ta fram tre designförslag på justerbara benkonstruktioner anpassade förkök- och badrumsmiljö. Konceptutvecklingen som genomfördes skulle bidra till tvådesignförslag justerbara mellan 70 och 140 mm och ett designförslag justbart mellan 300 och400 mm. Produktens estetiska uttryck och anpassningsbara design var viktiga aspekter, menprioriteringen i uppdraget var produktens funktion och hållbarhet. För att uppnå syftetutformades tre frågeställningar:

    1. Vilka fördelar och nackdelar finns med befintliga höj- och sänkbara funktioner ochegenskaper hos benkonstruktioner på marknaden?

    2. Vilka kvalitetskrav bör ställas på materialet till produkten?

    3. Hur kan produkten designas utifrån Prettypegs värderingar och krav?

    En analys av befintliga möbelben på marknaden genomfördes för att identifiera för- ochnackdelar samt egenskaper hos justerbara funktioner.Analysen resulterade i antagandet attprodukter på marknaden dominerades av en skruvfunktion för att justera höjden och att mångaprodukter endast gick att justera någon centimeter. Förutom de minimalajusteringsmöjligheterna var även valmöjligheter av färg och material begränsade hos de olikaprodukterna. Majoriteten av möbelbenen som analyserade var i metall vilket ansågs ge ettstilrent och stabilt intryck.

    Till den andra frågeställningen undersöktes material för att finna kvalitetskrav som skulleställas på materialet hos designförslagen. Denna undersökning resulterade i kvalitetskravenfukttålighet, hållbarhet, slitstyrka, korrosionshärdighet och lång livslängd.

    För att besvara den tredje frågeställningen togs tre konceptförslag fram med designprocessensom verktyg. Resultatet var att produkten kunde designas genom att integrera Prettypegs krav och värderingar i designprocessens alla steg med kvalitetskrav och framforskade kunskaper omjusterbara funktioner som underlag.

    Projektgruppen genomförde designprocessen vid framtagning av de tre koncepten och användeen systematisk urvalsprocess för att fastställa de tre bäst lämpade designförslagen:

    - Justerbart möbelben mellan 300 och 400 mm där varje ben bestod av tre metallstängersom var för sig justerades genom en skruvfunktion.

    - Justerbart möbelben mellan 70 och 140 mm där varje ben bestod av en kvadratiskmetallrörsprofil från framkant till bakkant av möbeln. Justeringsfunktionen fungeradegenom en spärr som fixerades mellan förborrade hål.

    - Justerbart möbelben mellan 70 och 140 mm där varje ben bestod av tre komponenter, tvåcylindriska rör som genom vridning separerades från varandra och exponerade en skruv.

    Projektgruppens rekommendationer till Prettypegs är att vidarearbeta designförslagen somtagits fram ytterligare genom bland annat konstruktionsritningar och tillverkningsmetoder. Ettförslag var även att företaget kunde framställa möbelben för utomhusbruk eller möbelben medhjul som tillåter förflyttning av en möbel då projektgruppen saknade detta i sortimentet.

    Gilla Gille - Att visuellt förmedla en identitet2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    As the market for graphic design evolves, it becomes more and more important

    for companies to be noticed and known by their trademark. Companies nowadays

    have to be well aware of the way they would like to be perceived publicly and

    form a profile on the market from that preference.

    The brand Gille was founded in the year of 1967 and produces cookies to be sold

    in stores all over the world. Gille does not yet have a graphic profile that reflects

    their wish of how they would like to be visually seen on the market; instead the

    brand creates new graphic material continuously, without any common guidelines.

    This is the main reason why Gille’s rivals are better known on the market.

    The purpose of this project was to create a proposal of a graphic profile for the

    brand Gille. To examine our purpose of this project, we established the following

    issues:

    • What are the main values and unique qualities that the brand Gille wish to

    communicate to their target audience?

    • In what ways can someone communicate the main values and unique

    qualities of a brand with the use of graphic design?

    Our project method has been based on interviews with the marketing director of

    Gille, information from professionals who work in the field of graphic design and

    communication, as well as analysis and theoretical facts concerning subjects such

    as colour, typography, visual communication and brand.

    As a result of this project, we have created a proposal of how Gille could profile

    the brand on the market. The graphic profile contains suggestions for the design

    of package labels, business cards, letterheads and their webpage. Chapter 4.6

    contains our suggested answers to the issues put forward. From our interview

    with the marketing director of Gille, we learned that uniformity is important for a

    graphic profile to be effective as a communicative tool. Based on this interview we

    also got to know the main values and qualities, which the brand would like to

    communicate. Then, theoretical facts and interviews that we received from

    professionals in the field gave us guidelines on how to use graphic design to

    communicate such values and qualities.

    Our conclusion of this project is that it is necessary for brands to continuously be

    aware of their position on the market. Brands also need graphic profiles which

    comply and communicate the main values of the brand. Finally, we have given our

    cooperating company a proposal of how they can continue their work towards

    developing and maintaining their position on the market.

    'Hen i lådan': Ett arbete om genusperspektivet på förpackningsdesign2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    'Hir in the box' is a study about the gender perspective in packaging design and how it is today. The study deals with the product category razors, for both women and men, to examine and compare products with the same function but with different designs. Based on an analysis of how packages are designed for different sexes, information should be given on how gender-neutral packaging can be designed and used in the future to reach the market. The purpose of the study is also to contribute to future research on the subject. To fulfill the purpose of this study, nuanced and in-depth data is collected by means of a small-N-study and a qualitative study in the form of open group interviews where the survey units are reviewed and discussed. By breaking down the design into its various elements, differences in the design of different genders are defined and analyzed to create a discussion on why this is and how to design packaging to avoid this stereotypical appearance. The work has resulted in a confirmation of the gender perspective in the razors packaging design; products for women and men are different and designed with stereotypical gender roles as a base. The work also clarifies that these stereotypical gender differences lives on from a long time ago, therefore concludes that a rethinking of gender-neutral products can become very popular in the market to break the persistence of stereotypical gender roles. By reaching out to the genderconscious target group through their marketing, such norm-critical products can hit big in the market. The work has an intense form consisting of qualitative survey methods and few survey units. Although this provides in-depth and nuanced data it means that general conclusions are difficult to draw. The limitations of this work are its interpretive analysis, the investigator has interpreted the collected data in one way and others can interpret it differently.

    Borgar för kvalité2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    It is becoming more attractive to have a good packaging design. It is important to get attention and stand out against competitors. It is also important to convey a feeling. Everything that can be shown, products or not, should symbolize the company.

    Borgens Konserver AB is located in Borgholm on Öland and has been in business since 1941. Borgens are specialized in mushrooms and their products can be found in stores all over Sweden. Our job was to develop a new package design for Borgens current and coming products. The packaging design is designed as a basic design that can be applied to both current and coming products.

    Our questions are:

    • How should picture, illustration, color and fonts be used to make a good package design?• How does Borgens wants to be understood in core values ​​and unique characteristics? • How do consumers perceive the current packaging design regarding core values ​​and unique characteristics? • How should the package design be designed to convey Borgens core values and unique characteristics to the target audience?

    The foundation of the work is an interview with Borgens CEO, Anders Gunnarsson. Based on the interview we made a consumer survey about the core values ​​and unique characteristics Borgens want to be associated with. An interview with a reference person was conducted to obtain input and feedback on Borgens current packaging design and our work to develop the new packaging design. A competitor's assay was also made to study the appearance of Borgens competitors.

    The result was a packaging design that can be applied to all of Borgens products and coming products. A package design that symbolizes the values ​​that were developed in the consumer survey and the interview with Borgens. The design is heavily based on the current design. It is important that the new packaging design attracts both existing and new consumers.

    Konceptstudie av solcellsdriven bil2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    World Solar Challenge är en tävling i Australien vars syfte är att främja utvecklingen av förnyelsebar energi. Här deltar olika universitet runt om i världen och för att bygga en solcellsdriven bil som drivs av solens energi. Den ska sedan köras en sträcka mellan Darwin och Adelaide på dryga 300 mil genomAustralien på kortast möjligast tid. Projektet görs för Tekniska Högskolan i Jönköping till en kommande kurs somstudenter kan söka sig till för att delta i World Solar Challenge 2013. I kursen ingår att bygga en solcellsbil som man sedan tävlar med. Genom att sätta upp krav som är nödvändiga och önskvärda i en funktionsanalys får projektet en utgångspunkt och ett stöd som bestämmer hur konceptet ska se ut och vilka krav som måste uppfyllas. De restriktioner som tävlingsledningen för World Solar Challenge upprättat kan omvandlas till nödvändiga krav ifunktionsanalysen. Researchen, restriktionerna och de teorier som de aerodynamiska aspekternapekat på bestämmer hur konceptet är utformat. Resultatet i projektet är en solcellsbil som med hjälp av sin sammanhängande form får goda aerodynamiska egenskaper och kan på det sättet konkurrera om en topplacering i World Solar Challenge. Konceptet kallas Sting och är ett trehjuligt fordon med en solcellsyta på 6m2 som är den tillåtna ytan för kiselsolceller. Genom att placera förarhytten framtill påverkar inte luftmotståndet bakänden lika mycket, som är den del som utsätts för mest turbulens. Bakänden kan på detta sätt smalnas av och föra samman luftströmmarna igen utan att det uppstår turbulens. Designen av Sting kommerfrån fyra värdeord vilka är: snabb, miljövänlig, aerodynamisk och alternativa energikällor. Genom detta projekt kan konceptet utvecklas vidare i den kommande kursen hos Tekniska Högskolan i Jönköping . Slutsatsen är att konceptet uppfyller de krav som funktionsanalysen innehåller och att konceptet kan ligga till grund för kursen med en bra utgångspunkt.

    Ergonomics study and concept development of a wide filling knife: Master thesis in industrial design2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Painting equipment, particularly wide filling knives, is a very traditional area that has experienced limited development since the mid-century. The same applies to the view of the product. It is made formerly for men, used formerly by men in a repetitive and highly wearing manner.

    Orkla House Care, formerly Anza, is the leading professional painting tool producer in the Nordics. Their goal is to adapt their tool for a wider consumer base, focusing on amateurs.

    This industrial design project aims at modernizing the view and usage of the Anza wide filling knife with focus on ergonomics, equality and inclusivity. The developed concept is thought to create extra support for the hand through raised surfaces and is shaped to also suit users with smaller hands. The design and packaging is focused on adding value to the product and creating a modern and refined impression. Simplicity, tactility and tradition are some of the themes for the design work.

    The relevance of academic writing in design education: academic writing as a tool for structuring reasons2008In: Journal of Writing in Creative Practice, ISSN 1753-5190, E-ISSN 1753-5204, Vol. 1, no 2, p. 151-160Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on the current function of academic writing for design education within Sweden. It argues that in its present form academic writing is used to explain the final result by accounting for the process, but it would be much more useful to designers if the form were modified to fit the purpose of justifying a design solution. Interpretations of the academic report as chronologically telling about the process have, in Swedish design education, resulted in muddled texts where the final results are absent or hidden in the lengthy description of the process. The academic report fulfils its function because it is a logical construction. Its form includes explication of the research-process because this process determines the reliability and/or validity of the new knowledge arrived at. An excellent design-process does not, however, guarantee excellent design: a design-solution is justified only by solving the problem. Adjusted to this purpose, academic writing could become a useful tool, helping students to grasp which explicit reasons and grounds may support their definition of the problem, outline how their design may be a solution to it, and also show where reasons and grounds may prove to be poor. Writing, in a modified academic form, can become a useful and integrated tool in design education, primarily if the intellectual skill developed through this writing is useful also for the practitioner.

    Visuellt tillfredställande ljusmiljöer vid nyplanerad belysning på utvalda sjukhusavdelningar2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The purpose with the report is to contribute with information around how to shape a lighting environment that support well-being. The goal is to show builders that the Swedish lighting standard SS-EN 12464-1 ​Ljus och belysning ​can be fulfilled in a more visually satisfactory manner. ​The study includes general areas of newly built and reconstructed hospitals. Observations at the hospitals take place during the day and do not take the weather into account. ​Builders for different types of projects are interviewed to get an understanding of how lighting design is handled in the construction process.

    The thesis has qualitative methodology where previous research forms the basis for the work, supplemented with observations and interviews. Collection of research on well-being and light environment is the first step in the work. Thereafter two hospitals are observed. Conclusions drawn from previous research and observations are used to make interview questions to the builders.

    Research shows that a satisfactory light environment that promotes well-being is an interplay that forms an ensemble of several factors where light is one of the factors together with architecture, air, sound, furnishing, color, and opportunity for outlook from windows as well as daylight. The two hospitals that have been observed follow to some extent what research shows how light environments should be designed after well-being. Builders think that lighting is an important part of a building and should come in at an early stage. Generally, the builder's does not possess any expertise in the area, thus taking expert assistance for best results. The builders who responded to the interviews in the projects had a basic requirement following the Swedish lighting standard SS-EN 12464-1. ​It is shown that visually satisfactory light environments that promote well-being can partly be created with Swedish lighting standard SS-EN 12464-1. Provided that a lighting designer comes in early in the construction process and may depart from the standard if necessary to create interaction with the other factors in the room that are adapted to human perception.

    Visuella hemligheter i Sverige och Kina2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The global society today leads to the fact that many companies choose to invest in other countries’ markets. One problem that can arise is that the communication can be misunderstood by the recipients and therefore risks of becoming costly and unsuccessful. To counter this problem, we have investigated cultural differences between western and eastern cultures and how those differences can affect the perception of visual communication in the form of logotypes. The work also aims to increase understanding of which similarities and differences that affect how visual elements such as colours, fonts, shapes and symbols are perceived and how they can be seen as global.

    The purpose of the thesis was to examine how visual communication, in the form of logotypes, is perceived in the western and eastern countries. The aim was also to find out which cultural differences that affect what we perceive, and to investigate how the visual elements can be used to get logotypes to be seen as global in both Sweden and China. The main purpose has been divided into the three following questions:

    • What cultural differences affect how visual communication is perceived in Sweden and China?
    • Are there similarities/differences in how visual elements in logotypes are perceived and used in Sweden and China?
    • How can the visual elements be used to get logotypes to be seen as global in both Sweden and China?

    To examine this area, we used a combination of three methods; a literature review, interviews and a competitive analysis. With these three methods we tackled the area from multiple perspectives, which increases both the reliability and validity of the results.

    We have reached the results that there were four major cultural differences that affect the visual communication. We have also seen that there are similarities and differences in how visual elements in logotypes are perceived and used in Sweden and China. The results also showed that there are no specific visual elements or guidelines for creating a logotype that is perceived as global in both Sweden and China.

    One conclusion we reached was that companies and brands need to be aware of the cultural differences that affect the perception of visual communication. They also need to know to what extent it affects them. Since there are similarities and differences in how visual elements are perceived, we have concluded that the individual's perception can vary a lot, but that people within the same culture often have relatively similar views. To get a logotype to be seen as global in Sweden and China, we have concluded that the logotype should follow the same guidelines as for a well-made and high quality logotype.

    Collapsible Home: Celebrate life again2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There has been significant increase in the occurrence of earthquakes and other disasters around the world recently. With record-breaking storms and natural disasters destroying different parts of the world, many people have to deal with the repercussions of the aftermaths; and homelessness is one of the facts of such incidence. This master thesis is aimed at creating living solution for the victims of earthquakes and other kind of disasters; natural or human-made (war), providing accommodation for homeless people after an earthquake or a housing alternative for refugees. The design of the collapsible home is basically a new concept of emergency hut for accommodating people in emergency after the event of disaster with easy assembling and quick installation feature. Considering the situation of homeless people after catastrophic disasters who need to be accommodated, the design and creation of a quick, accommodating and low-cost emergency hut is advantageous.  This project also provides a living service for both refugees and homeless people. It is low cost, modular, and easy to use. More than that it is feasible and it makes it possible to accommodate people for a longer period of time, rather than a very short temporary housing solution such as tents.

    The effect of constraints in creativity: From the perspective of web designers2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – Web is no longer solely about functionality and information as it used to be. Nowadays the aesthetic aspects, including creativity, could be considered just as important. However, web designers still need to fulfil the needs of clients and users in the design process which causes various design constraints. Therefore, this study aims to investigate how web designers’ creativity is affected by various design constraints. This is explored by one main research question and a sub-question: 1.) How is web designers’ creativity affected by design constraints?; 1.1) What could cause web designers to break web design guidelines?

    Method – This research applied an inductive, qualitative approach with an exploratory view. In order to find answers for the research questions, semi-structured interviews were conducted with 8 participants from the field of web design. The data gathered was later analysed and evaluated through thematic analysis

    Conclusions – The findings of this study suggest that while there are some positive effects, web designers’ creativity is mostly negatively affected by design constraints. Furthermore, it seems web designers break web design guidelines due to finding them irrelevant and/or to get a more creative outcome as well as breaking them unintentionally.

    Delimitations – This study only covers how web designers reason regards the research questions and does not include the perspective of web developers. Moreover, this thesis focuses solely on website design and does not involve design for mobile applications.

    Abstract [en]

    This report describes the product development thesis that was conducted as an end project in the Master programme Industrial Design at Jönköping University.

    The thesis has been about developing, designing and building an ironing board for compact living. The name for the product that has been developed is UNI and it is a multifunctional ironing board which can either be mounted on the wall or hanged over the door. When the ironing board is not in used, it can be folded up and will then act as a mirror. When the ironing board is folded down, parts of the mirrors frame will be folded down and act like a supporting leg for the ironing board. On the inside is shelves and hooks mounted. Here can the owner store small things like keys and jewelleries.

    To get the best final result, have the design process Bootcamp Bootleg been used. This design process is divided in to five different stages where different methods are used to help with moving the project forward.

    The CAD-programme SolidWorks 2014 was used to create the CAD-models and the renderings where made in the rendering programme Keyshot 5.

    The physical model which was made during this thesis, was made in a scale of 1:1. The materials that were used for the model were hard foam, metal, wood, acrylic mirror, wadding and fabric.

    This thesis has been performed in collaboration with the company Rörets Industrier AB located in Jönköping, Sweden.

    Hud & Hälsocenter- Redesign av grafiskt material2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this report, we have examined how to make a re-design of a logotype and how to express the words of value of the graphic material. We got an assignment from Hollies Reklambyrå to re-design Hud & Hälsocenter’s original logotype and graphic material. It is not unusual that companies do not understand how important it is that one's visual identity is updated and expresses what you stand for. Because it can cost a lot to replace the existing graphic identity many companies hesitate to do so. However, one can earn back the money through a re- design because then you express your message in a better way and can reach new customers.

    The purpose of this work is to enhance Hud & Hälsocenter’s identity that focuses on well-being in both on the inside and outside. The target group should feel safe and experience a warm embrace. We broke down the purpose of the following questions:

    • How to conduct a re-design of a logo?

    • How to express Hud & Hälsocenter’s words of value in a new graphic

      material?

      The methods we used to answer the questions were interviews with the Hollies Reklambyrå and Hud & Hälsocenter. Then we conducted a literature review, analysis of competitors and a design process. During the design process, we received feedback from three referees.

      The implementation of our methods and with a solid theoretical background, we could express Hud & Hälsocenter’s words of value in the Result, in a new graphic material. We have developed a new logotype, business card, letterhead and design of a website.

      The conclusions we have reached is that there is no specific procedure in a re- design of the logotype as it can differ between different assignments and designers. The main thing is that the changes made do not contradict the message you want to convey, but instead reinforces the Hud & Hälsocenter’s words of value. It requires several components in the graphical material to convey the words of value to the target group. Only one component may not reflect all on its own.

    Att söka jobb med webbaserad portfolio: Hur arbetssökande bör gå till väga för att bygga en webbaserad portfolio som motsvarar potentiella arbetsgivares förväntningar2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of the study was to provide job seekers in the trade of graphic design and web development an idea of how a web-based portfolio should be designed to meet the expectations of potential employers of the industry.

    Method – The study used two main methods. The first method was a quantitative survey with job seekers currently studying. The second method was a qualitative survey with potential employers of the industry.

    Findings – Results of the collected empirical data and literature shows that a portfolio is incredibly important in the process of applying for a job in the industry for graphic designers and web developers. The result showed lots of important factors that jobseekers should consider when designing a web-based portfolio. These factors are summarized as an annex of guidelines in the report's final.

    Implications – The study is based on empirical data gathered from the authors surrounding district, Jonkoping, which created a specific selection based on a geographic location. All of the interviews were planned to take place at the selected company’s facilities. However, one of the interviews was conducted through e-mail, which may have influenced the responses from that specific company.

    Limitations – The main limitation of the study was the time frame. Considering the six interviews and the extensive survey, we spent a lot of time analysing and compiling the collected data. The study was also limited to web-based portfolios. However, the interviews showed details that would have made it interesting to look at a bigger picture regarding the process of job seeking. The study was, nevertheless, focused primarily on the design of the portfolio.

    CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT OF CARGO MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR PRIVATE CARS2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master thesis deals with concept development of a cargo management system for private cars. It has been carried out at the master program of industrial design at Jönköping University in collaboration with the design consultancy Dacat located in Gothenburg.

    When storing cargo in car trunks a common problem is that the cargo falls over, causing it to break or create disturbance by moving around. Existing solutions are often complicated because they require several steps to secure the cargo and take up much space when not used. Many of the solutions are made as original equipment for specific cars.

    The aim of this thesis has been to work around the standards of specific car brands or models in order to find a solution that can be used for different brands. Furthermore, the ambition has been to come up with a solution that does not require any extra steps in the cargo securing process and does not take up space when not used.

    The work has been carried out using the Bootcamp Bootleg method for design processes. Following this method, the report describes research in the Empathize stage, moving on to Define, Ideate and finally Prototype.

    The result is a concept fulfilling the aims of the project as described earlier and is presented as a full scale prototype.

    Belysning av en badmintonplan2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Badminton is an indoor sport that people of all ages and at all levels of exercise can enjoy. The higher the level of the sport is practiced in the more demands on lighting. Today many badminton courts use luminaires that contribute to glare and do not provide a good visual comfort. Badminton is the fastest racquet sport, which makes the demands on the lighting high. Without adequate guidance on the lighting design of the facility to ensure good lighting for the players, it may be difficult for them to have time to perceive the shuttlecock, when the game runs very fast and many movements occur at the badminton court.

    The aim is to increase the understanding of what factors are important to consider when planning new lighting in badminton halls.

    The methods used in the study were observations, light measurements, interviews and survey. The surveys were conducted in two badminton halls in Sweden, one in Skellefteå in the badminton hall Degerby Hall and one in Jönköping in the hall Racquet Center. The observations were conducted in each hall. Also a survey of the players in the halls, interviews with those who planned the lighting in each hall and measurements of the horizontal average illuminance on the badminton courts were implemented.

    Results show that luminaire design features for functionality and glare prevention are important factors that should be taken into account when the new lighting in badminton halls is planned.

    Abstract [en]

    This report covers the product development of a new type of extendable table for the company Karl Andersson och Söner. The company wants to expand their product collection with a new product. Karl Andersson och Söner is a well-known family company that has been located in Huskvarna since 1898, and they are producing furniture for private- and the public environment.

    The aim with this project is that the product should lead to increased sales, as well as expand their collection to appeal a wider audience. The work is permeated by two issues, to achieve as good results as possible. The issues will bring up how to make a table better, in terms of the competitor’s options, and how to apply a design process to develop a table that meets the markets needs and requirements.

    The design process of the work consists of strategically picked parts from three separate design processes. Work began with identifying the competitor’s similar products and their advantages and disadvantages. Of the information gathered, a survey was created about extendable tables which were then translated into requirements. Furthermore, the customer’s needs and requirements were compiled from the survey together with the client’s requirements and put in the house of quality for quality function deployment, QFD. The use of QFD gave us the interwoven demands from both customer and client that was later compiled in a final specification.

    Furthermore, the sketching phase began where focus was put on the solution of the extendable mechanism, instead of the design of the table. In our case, we focused on finding a new and different solution that had not been seen before, based on the requirements that was compiled. The sketches on the extendable mechanism were evaluated using the Pugh Matrix together with the competitor’s mechanisms towards the specification, to see which solution met the requirements best. The result was that one of the competitor’s mechanism met the requirements best and the decision was taken to use the tested and well proven extendable mechanism as a starting point, but also to develop it further.

    The whole design of the table gradually took shape through sketches, which were inspired by a chair that is available in Karl Andersson och Söners product collection. The final product resulted in an extendable table based on the customers and the client’s guidelines and requirements.

    The methods of the study consist of a literary study for basic knowledge, a quantitative content analysis examining 20 web pages interface design and a qualitative interview’s where two designers in web design participated and advises on interface designs and strategies for exclusive websites.

     

    The methods have contributed to the results for the following questions:

    • Which design factors can be used to show exclusivity on websites?
      • What factors does secret or exclusive bars use?
    • What approaches or strategies are appropriate to showcase the exclusivity of a brand on a website?

    The results show that new knowledge has been found to show exclusivity on websites. The discovery is that it is important to make preliminary work in the structure and amount of content. Trends like using large or full presentations at the beginning of the interface are not defined as exclusive appearance. The number of colors is important to increase an exclusive feeling, but which colors are not of great importance. White and black, however, can be good colors to convey minimalism. The same applies to fonts, where the number of total fonts in an interface plays a bigger role, but how text layouts are a great advantage in exclusive design. Moving images and animations can enhance the user experience and also exclusivity. Minimalism is a major part of exclusive design and 60 percent empty space is recommended to use on the website has been discovered.

     

    The strategies that have been shown to affect the appearance of exclusivity are invitation-only systems and memberships. By letting the visitor see what the brand is and why it should be interested is extremely important for creating an interest and not an excluding feeling, rather to bring excitement and attraction. However, much of the discovery was that the communication to the target group and how it is performed is an important role in expressing exclusivity.

     

    To accommodate the duration of the study, the study has limited the interviews to interviewing only two designers and the quantitative content analysis only reviewed 20 web pages in total, with the statements and questions planned for the size of the study.

    Grafisk profil Jönköping Bandy: Visual identity Jönköping Bandy2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    During the spring of 2013 we developed a visual identity for Jönköping Bandy, a bandy association in Jönköping, which was founded in 1947.

    Jönköping Bandy’s main problem was the low interest for the association by the local people. The association also had problems with the economy, which made it hard for them to merchandise themselves.

    In Jönköping, there were a lot of sport associations, and therefore, it was difficult to find sponsors. One way to help the association, was to create a good visual identity for them. A visual identity that would reflect on the proper values of the association.

    The intention was: “Through graphical design, we want to convey Jönköping Bandy to a larger amount of people, and get increased knowledge in graphical idiom.” and was torn apart into these three questions:

    • What core values does Jönköping Bandy have, and how can we convey them through the visual identity?
    • Which visual materials does Jönköping Bandy need?
    • How do other teams in Allsvenskan Södra merchandise themselves through their websites?

    The work began with a study of relevant theoretical literature, with focus on graphical design. After studying literature, we went into a more investigative section, where we interviewed Jönköping Bandy, and performed a survey with members of the association. With the survey, we corroborated the associations values. We also performed a competitive analysis about the other teams in Allsvenskan Södra and interviewed experts.

    We analysed the scientific studies, and compiled the information that we distilled from it. Our analysis showed that emotions such as sports, speed, family and children were in focus. After that, we started our design process, where the first step was to create a moodboard.

    The second step of our design process was to create an element, and after that create a basic layout to apply on the graphical materials in the visual identity.

    The finished visual identity became a strong, tuff profile that expressed a sense of sport and speed, which truly reflected Jönköping Bandy.   

    The conclusions of our work, was that the visual identity would help Jönköping Bandy to grow. Improvements that we would like to have seen, was that the enquiry could have been shorter, to give the design process more time. We would also have liked to seen competitive analyses that gave us more valuable information.

    Charging station for electric bikes2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This report describes the process of designing a charging station for electrical bicycles and is the end project of the Industrial Design Master at Jönköping University.

    The thesis was created and assigned by Energikontor Norra Småland. This organization helps companies to be more sustainable and promotes clean energy. In this case, they are working together with Cykelpoolen, which is a newly started company that wants to create an electric bike rental service. The charging station was made to fit this company’s choice of bikes. The requirement was to create a charging station that could fit both regular electric bikes and electric cargo bikes, and that could be fitted inside a parking garage.

    The work began with researching electric bikes, existing charging stations and contacting people and companies of interest.

    A number of concepts was then developed and presented to Energikontoret and Cykelpoolen. They then chose one of the concepts that was then further developed with CAD-files, renders and in the end a physical model.

    The result is a charging station that can be adapted to fit different types of bikes and different wheel sizes. The station features heavy-duty locking eyelets to secure the bikes by the frame without having to bend down or use bad posture. Each bike spot have a stable bike rack that firmly holds the bikes into place and a charging indicator that reveals the status of the charging process.

    The physical model that was presented during this thesis was made in scale 1:1 and consisted out of one charging unit.

    Fenomenet fönsterbelysning: Onödig energislukare eller nödvändig stämningshöjare?2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The final project work was performed within the two courses Lighting Design and Product Development with Furniture Design, where a common interest existed for the design of luminaire fixtures. Research showed that no previous investigations or studies had been conducted to find out why people have lights in their windows. Maybe window lighting is redundant and consume unnecessary amount of energy? Lively discussions with classmates and acquaintances resulted in several hypotheses about the presence of window lighting.

    Because of the lack of knowledge about why people have window lighting, the purpose of the work was to determin why. If the lack of knowledge can be filled it will be easier to design luminaire fixtures suited for the needs. The work was guided by the main research questions Which are the real reasons people have lighting placed in the window? and What shall a window lighting look like to satisfy identified needs in terms of function and appearance?

    The work would result in determining why people have window lighting and from the result develop a product suggestion for a luminaire fixture that meets the needs.

    Relevant theory was studied about the advent of electricity in Sweden, different types of luminaire fixtures, lighting principles and how a design process for a product development can be carried out.

    A pre-study summoned and phrased seventeen hypotheses for the reasons for window lighting. The hypotheses were the basis for a survey conducted among one hundred informants in Jönköping.

    The survey also aimed to identify requirements on function and appearance for a product suggestion.

    The conclusion is that people use window lighting because it is considered cozy viewed from both outside and inside the home, the impression of lighten a dark window, it looks nice for the neighbors, it prevents burglary and it defines the shape of the room. The most desirable requirements for a window light to meet is coziness, a standing fixture, stability, to be simultaneously trendy and timeless, and that it can be controlled even when no one is at home.

    Window lighting did not prove to be an unnecessary energy consumer in the home but it´s appreciated for its ability to create a nice and cozy atmosphere, for both people who are in the home and for the viewer on the outside of the home.

    Based on the requirements that emerged a suggestion for a window luminarie fixture which fulfilled the required properties was made and presented in sketches and digital drawings.

    LJUSKONST: EN STUDIE OM LJUSKONSTENS VÄRDE FÖR LJUSDESIGN2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In 1947 the artist Thomas Wilfred predicted that light art will become an obvious part of the art world in the next 20 years. Now, almost 70 years later, light art is still not acknowledged or defined - neither as a art form or as an expression. Artists today are creating light art all around the world with increasing enthuiaism but in point of fact there is nothing such as light art, according to the encyclopaedias. There is an obvious gap in knowledge and confusion surrounding the field of light art which this study intends to reduce.

    The study aims to highlight the value and benefit of light art as developing factor for the lighting design industry. Consuming art is one way of enriching the inner repertoire and inspiration.

    The examined issues are "What is Light art?", "What within Light art inspire Lighting designers and others who work with light?” and "Which innovations have gone from considered as Light Art to Lighting design?". The work is focused on people who work with light and the definition of light art in this study is: art that portrays or creates from light.

    The survey has a deep and qualitative approach and is accomplished with the snowball method throughout questionnaires, which all together were answered by nearly fifty persons. Complementary methods of collecting data consist of bulk mail, telephone interviews and the posting of the survey at social media. The primary data has been analyzed through compilation, categorization and summary.

    People who work with light describes light art, and also what within light art they find inspiring, in many widely different ways. In summary light art is defined by who the creator is, where it is located, what it consists of and how it is perceived. Light art inspire people working with light who apply their influences from the field of light art into the lighting design industry.

    The conclusions is that light art can be created by both natural and artificial light, from small details to big and eye-catching installations, has an unique context, a message, a function, and differs from lighting design in terms of purpose and context.

    The specific parts within light art that inspire people working with light are projects where daylight is involved, the technology and materials of the pieces, light festivals and other light events, light art pieces where the viewer can influence and become a part of it, works that create patterns or objects by light, stage lighting and the expressive freedom in the making of light art.

    The results indicates that accentuated architecture, colored and dynamic light, light patterns, neon and the placing of fixtures with classic design for indoor use in exterior environments, has gone from being considered as light art to lighting design.

    Hur dagsljusinsläppet påverkar upplevelsen av ett rum2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The background to this report is based on how architectural art through times been treating daylight with greatest precision to take advantage of its good quality, and how the technical revolution with artificial lighting affects our way of working with daylighting today.

    The purpose of the study is to contribute to the knowledge how the daylight opening affects the perception of a room. The aim is to clarify how proportions and placement affects how the incident light occurs in the room and how that affects on how the room is perceived. The study is meant to be used by lighting planners, and in terms of pleasantness, be able to create the best possible daylight environment.

    The following questions were formulated:

    • How do the positions of daylight openings affect the perception of a room?

    • How do the proportions of daylight openings affect the perception of a room?

    • How much light enters the room as a result of proportions and placements of daylight openings?

      The investigation began with a pre-experiment where window configurations were observed in a scale model and then tested in a full-scale experiment. During the experiment surveys were made in a sample group of twenty people who had to answer questions about spatial experience, followed by lighting calculations that were made in all four experimental settings.

      The result shows that large daylight openings provide a high level of light but contribute to low spatiality, deterioration of contrasts and increased risk of glare. Smaller, low-set horizontal daylight openings tend to give the same levels of light but create a better sense of space and reduce glare.

      With high positioned horizontal daylight openings the result shows a deterioration of spatial experience and the room is perceived closed and stuffy.

      A vertical daylight opening is shown to make the room feel small and high, and the level of light is low, the contrast ratio and the completeness experienced worsening.

      The result shows that the window surface area affects the experience but is not essential how the daylight openings affect the perception of the room, it looks like the matter of placement have greatest impact on the room experience. It also shows that the darker rooms have higher spatiality than the lighter ones. The study shows that the test group liked the room with low-set horizontal daylight openings better.

    This report describes the process of designing an oven door which provides a new way of interaction between the users and the oven. And this is the final project of the Industrial Design Master at Jönköping University. The thesis was created and assigned by the Research & Development Centre at Chantereine, which belongs to one of the seven major research centres of SaintGobain group. The main research area of this R&D centre is related to the development of glass, and the implementation of the new glass technologies on an oven door is an important subject to the company. So the aim of this thesis is to provide a smart solution of the HMI on an oven door and to give full play to the potentials of the glass material, in order to maximum the value of the glass for the glass manufactures. The work began with researching and analysing of competitors and market trends, as well as conducting interviews and surveys to identify new user behaviours. Several rounds of ideation were conducted and a number of concepts were developed and presented to the company. Based on constant discussions and exchange of opinions with the company, one concept was later chosen and further developed with CAD files, renders, posters and a physical model in the end. The result is a wall oven with a door which can be rotated and inserted at the bottom when it is open. The oven door is consisted of one piece of glass which will be used as the main information display. With the help of a motion detector, crucial information during cooking process will be presented on the glass and it will provide the users a brand-new way of interacting with the oven. When the door is inserted inside, there will be two additional LED displays along with buttons to provide extra feedback. The physical model which was presented during the thesis was made in 1:1 scale.

    Re-design av Persgårdens förpackningsserie2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The packaging is becoming increasingly important and is sometimes the only communication channel to the consumer, especially in small family businesses.

    Persgården is a small Swedish family company located on Visingsö who sells organic muesli, various type of date, mixes of dried fruits and nuts. Persgårdens problem is that all of their packaging does not convey the same feel and communicate their core values. Our work has been to do a re-design of Persgårdens packaging.

    Our prime purpose was to change Persgårdens existing packaging so the packagings could get more uniformed to the customer and that consumers should easily recognize the packaging series. The purpose was also that Persgårdens packaging would stand out from other similar products on the market. The purpose was also to see how the process of production of food packaging works. Based on the purpose, the following questions have been developed:

    - Which core values ​​do Persgården want to communicate?- Which elements and markings must appear on Persgårdens packaging?- How can we change Persgårdens existing packaging series to make it more uniformed, unique and communicate their core values​​?

    The methods that have been used to answer our questions are a literature survey and interviews with the owners of Persgården and external experts. We have also done a competitor analysis, moodboard and we have visit a fair. The new packagings has been developed based on a design process.

    The results of this work show the markings and elements that must be included on a food packaging. The core values ​​of Persgården has been analyzed and chosen to be genuine, organic and health. Sketches and prototypes of the new packaging series have also been developed. During the development of the new packaging, consideration has been taken to what Persgården want to convey and their three core values​. The result has been developed using mainly thoughts and ideas from the interviews and the literature survey.

    We can finally establish that it is important to think about where the package should be placed, what it should convey and that all packaging conveys the same feeling.

    The impact of scale when using models of daylight analysis2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study examines the issue of scale regarding models when analyzing daylight, which scale is the most representative of a real space. There have been previous studies done regarding scale model and daylight, however, they do not look at how the scale itself can affect the experience of daylight. The use of the architects’ already built scale model can be seen as valuable for light designers when evaluations and visualizing daylight in a real space. However, the use of the architect's scale model depends on its scale, hence why this study is being conducted. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects the scale has on daylight visualization with scale models.

    This study began with conducting a small literature study regarding daylight, scale models, visual perception and practical consideration when using scale models. The method was designed thereafter. By choosing a real room to base the scale models on, three scales were chosen, 1:50, 1:20 and 1:10. Thereafter the questionnaire was designed by using the analyzing method PERCIFAL as a base.

    The result of the study showed the subject's answers regarding; light level, shadows, light distribution and specular reflections. As well as a question regarding which scale model the found most representative of the real room and why. The compiled data showed which scale model was the most representative of the real room. The results show a difference between the different scale models and a correlation to the real room is seen. In conclusion, the scale model can be used to estimate and visualize the daylight within a space. However, the scale must be regarded and looked at so the chosen scale can represent the real space, which allows for an easy view of the model.
