Let’s Go Design’s Hot Rod Baby Buggy is almost complete. However, in episode 7, the team took on an incredibly important task: the design review. While we’ve been working on the design of the vehicle in pieces and developing the various parts over the course of a few months, we have been waiting for a complete design to really give the buggy a full scale review.
As designers, reviewing and testing the design is essential to the success of the final product. Upon review of the Baby Buggy, the team found that the structure was good and challenges with the motor could be overcome. However, the tank treads and tracks presented a challenge.
This issue highlights how important it is for designers to step back and take a critical look at a design. It’s easy to get caught up in the details of the design process and the vision of what a final product might look like. Many times, the best features in an overall design come out of a full review. Though it’s not always easy to accept feedback or change a design that has so much time and effort put into it, this is a crucial part of the design process.
Of course, the Let’s Go Design team is no different. It’s been a long road to the completed Baby Buggy, but we’re excited to make these final adjustments to the tracks and make sure the other features are ready to roll.
We want to hear from you! How do you approach design reviews? Any thoughts on perfecting the track design? Tell us below in our comments section. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the Let’s Go Design page in the coming weeks for our final episode – and the official unveil of the Hot Rod Baby Buggy!
