Design tehnology fragrances best

  1. 1. DESIGN TECHNOLOGY JAMES PINERStart Final
  2. 2. I like how the health lottery P.O.S is mainly blue which gives a relation to the NHS and health. The Jeff Banks P.O.S is more functional by providing every product ready to get from there but it has too many products for sale. The Lacoste P.O.S is very nice because it has a clear clinical look with simplicity, it gives you one product available in many colours so it makes buying that item more fun because you can pick any colour you desire. The Coca-Cola P.O.S is good because it offers all chilled drinks, the best drinks will be at eye level like Coca-Cola and the others will be distributed around, the only problem of this is that there is too much choice.POINT OF SALE RESEARCH
  3. 3. The newspaper P.O.S is good because it offers all newspapers, its basic and can always be used for different papers because you simple slip out the title banner in which the title of the paper is placed. The Dove men care P.O.S is not that good because it has too much selection from the customer and they will end up not buying their products, also their P.O.S is very basic cardboard cut out and so its not very professional but rather easy to put-up. Rolex is a good P.O.S because it clearly displays its products, the only negative is that it cannot be handled because it is a valuable product it would be a target for thieves. Superdrys P.O.S is good because like the Lacoste point of sale it is simple clinical and clear. The products are there to look at touch try on and so it offers a good range of products.POINT OF SALE RESEARCH
  4. 4. HACKETT I think Hacketts user is a male of his 20s, the male would go to watch rugby, horse racing like the grand national and/or Ascot. This product would be excellent for the male because it shows and gives a sense of British class, from tradition from the 1960s suit wearer even to now in which it gives the sense of a business style but in the best possible way, almost like a style of swarve for the upper-class gentleman.MY CHOSEN BRAND
  5. 5. HACKETTFISH SOHO Hackett fragrances and clothing are aimed at the late 20s to early 30sFish Soho is aimed at the 20-25 year olds, its packaging is simple yet males, it is based more on class then informal styles, the late 20s maleeffective and the young man wears this to get the London look and to would wear the fragrances because of the slightly classier style and tolook different round the streets of London. This gives the sense of achieve a classic British look, Hackett would be seen at places like horsedifference to the male ego and to stand out from the crowd. Fish is all racing and the grand national and so its achieves its upper class nature.about looking swerve in its own category the ability to be different and Hackett gives the sense of pure smartness while wearinghave a smart look with long hair, it gives the sense of smartness without business attire, it gives the person a status quo when lookinglooking like a university type in which they look professional at the smart, it helps the male achieve the look in which he wouldsame time of being untidy thus giving the right look when seen by be able to do anything while looking like this even to thepeople and while at work because it is a product of looking good. casual events he would look dashing.LOOKING AT ALL BRANDS
  6. 6. LYNXLynx products are aimed at the youngerman/teenager, this is because the products smell nice andthat its advertising campaign is aimed at men beingirresistible to women just by spraying the deodorant. Themale is enticed to buy these products so that he has betterluck with the opposite sex. The usual male would beslightly athletic and his clothing would be informal. Lynxgives the effect of what the younger people want to aspireto, to be able to get the girl with this fragrance and showoff his alpha male ego in which he is a real player in hiscompetition of age for the girls. OLD SPICE Old spice use the concept of a classic brand revitalised to suit the young man of the century, the classic smell draws the young man with advertising campaigns to boost his confidence. Older males will know that old spice was somewhat of a gimmick and that it was not expensive and most of the males 40 years ago wore the scent. They would choose this brand to move onto a more fun and athletic lifestyle. It has been rebranded to be able to attract another generation to use it in which they would be the best male around, being bold and smelling bold would be the idea in which he would definitely ne noticed.LOOKING AT ALL BRANDS
  7. 7. L’OREAL MEN EXPERT LOreal mens products are aimed at the older man from the late 40s to early 50s. This is because the products are aimed at making the man look and feel younger, they supply mens revitaliser eye roller for more energetic looking eyes. So the men who use these products would be wanting to look younger like mens hair colouring serums and shampoo. LOreal men expert is all about improving the look of the older male in which he has marks to show his age, these products are aimed at reducing these look and revitalise his look and morale making him look younger, this will help him as he would feel better about himself, he would have a more positive attitude and he will feel he can do things that used to be limited by age.MR.NATTYMr natty products are aimed at males early to mid 40s becausethe style of language used on the website suggests that the brandis for older gentleman. They would purchase these productsbecause they are looking for fine quality male groomingproducts in the London area. They want a more prestige look togo with their lifestyle, the way in which the language is used onthe website suggests that its for men who work on boats. Mrnatty is all about being as swish as possible for the oldermale, he would use these products to embrace his oldness inwhich he would gracefully be his age rather then try to beyounger he will embrace his stage in which his age doesn’tmatter anymore and that he is now comfortable with his age.LOOKING AT ALL BRANDS

Competitive products is about looking at Hacketts rivals again similar to market research, it will look at what rivals Hackett and what Hackett could do to regain the top mark and come out on top as they used to until most companies went worldwide and they became a very famous brand. Ill look at advertising campaigns and where ads could be placed and where certain products are in certain shops.10 minute observation is similar to person and productinteraction but it is purely seeing how many people will look at the Market research will be about looking at other products on the market that could competeunit and the type of person they are.

  12. 12. The Hugo boss unit at Harrods was notspecial in anyway to the others, it wasdifficult to find and that the only difference isthe background photograph[h and the bottlesitself, they have a bright light to display andso that can draw the customers in. the pointof sale unit displayed all bottles that HugoBoss has to offer but there was too muchselection for one customer I think it wouldhave had to have been limited.The Hugo boss p.o.s is good because it givesyou something to hold such as the bag, it keepsthe customer there and so its successful, also itcovers the testing bottles so that is a downside.It simplistic and so its easy to look at andinteract with and so it is a good P.O.S. The newly released 007 fragrance is the highlight of Harrods at the moment and When testing mens fragrances the potential customers so it heavily influences the fragrances approach the point of sale unit. department together with adverts point of Firstly they look at all the products on sale for the P.O.S sale units and promotions in the brand, once they have found a product they are familiar windows, its good because 007 is well with they pick up the bottle, spend a few seconds at it and known through the world and so anyone then they proceed to test the fragrance on left and right who glances at the unit knows instantly hands, then they shake their hands for the scent to settle in what its related to. and then show their family and friends their wrist, the bottle, then they show the products at the point of sale unit. Then and only then did they request the price of the bottle because the point of sale did not contain any information about the pricing of the product. There was staff always around giving information on all products and so I conducted my research at Harrods luxury outlet store, Harvey Nichols and many upper class stores in Londons Canary Wharf.PERSON AND PRODUCT INTERACTION
  13. 13. While doing my research I stayed around in Harrods and Hackett, Hugo Boss and other shops looking at how many people approached the point of sale units, what they did and their age and style. Firstly while in Harrods I watched a male in his late 20s in business attire approach the Hugo Boss stand, he had a talk with the assistant who explained all of the fragrances and discussed his favourite and why. The male then asked to try the scent in which the staff behind the counter readied a testing strip and then Most of the people who walked past the point of sale just gave a glance sprayed the point of sale bottle onto the strip, they then and nothi9ngg more, occasionally they would stand for as few seconds proceeded to wave the strip around and then handed it almost analysing what the products are for sale but the bright light to the customer, the male them viewed his opinion and showing all the products really draw them in. to me the bright light and then done the same with another bottle. the background photograph drew me in and so I enjoyed looking at the environment the scent could be used in. the staff behind the counter knew Out of the ten minutes I was viewing only around 3 all about the fragrances and so they could give me all the vital people approached the male fragrances I would information. associate to be near Hacketts target market and age range, all whom looked to be returning from work. 0-3 minutes- 3 persons walked past the unit glancing and one male did Out of all the males who approached the product most stop and test the fragrance and showed interest to his friends, didn’t buy put their hands on the product and went through the the products then left the stand to have a look at the 007 fragrance.. same process. 4-7 minutes- up to ten people walked past this unit only merely glancing while talking to friends, one male on his own did look test and though about purchasing one of the products and then looked around at diesel products and then also went to the 007 stand. 8-10 minutes- no none stood at the unit and some glances were drawn but it seems the promote devices of the 007 fragrance had taken away potential customers, so I found out that if other products are promoted well enough they will gain a reputation and v ads as well as ones in the street. That they will draw the market to them thus cornering the market from all other products.10 MINUITE OBSERVATION
  14. 14. While looking at male fragrances I looked at the environment surrounding them. InHacketts Canary Wharf store the environment was their clothing and the style of thestore was of traditional British feel, old chairs and polished wood was used for most ofthe store, it gave the feel of real class as well as wealth.Looking in boots shops the environment of the mens fragrances was that they were allplaced together. There was nothing special about them behind glass cabinets other thena few selected lines which took up floor space in which the potential customer wouldhave to walk past them in order to see the rest so it has the angle of being first. So theHugo Boss stall was one of these which displayed a bag which claimed that if youbought a big enough bottle of the fragrance you would receive the bag for free. Thisangle bought many males to the bag rather then the bottle as it was more interesting atfirst glance. They would play around looking at the bag for a couple of minutes beforethen looking at the bottle which to me is a successful way in keeping the potentialcustomer there.When I went to Harrods there was nothing special about any of the sale points for malefragrances, they were all light up brightly and that they contained one backgroundpicture of where their best fragrance could be used which to me I found was a little bittoo repetitive in the store. I had to ask a member of staff to help me find certainfragrances and that you could never easily distinguish the fragrances while walkingaround at a glance.What Harrods did have however was a large promotion of the new 007 fragrancewhich was placed in the window area with a vehicle and many devices used andassociated with the 007 feel, this to me was outlandish and was very large promotionjust for a bottle of male fragrance.ENVIRONMENTAL SNAPSHOT
  15. 15. Diesel is also another competitive product because it is targeted at the same age range and style as well as pricing as its cheaper then HugoFor competitive products I chose Hugo Boss and Diesel as they Boss. It focuses heavily on being casual but its different again fromboth have a similar age range and that they combine business and Hackett as Hackett is all about being totally British and of style, brandspleasure. Hugo Boss Is good because their male fragrance is like diesel can be for most occasions because its not held down by onequite popular, they are a well known brand and their primary sale style, the style of a traditional British gentleman and so that’s whyis of business wear such as suits attire. Hackett has competition, because it is not expanding its horizons.Hugo Boss’ pricing however is not similar as the bottles are more I found that diesel had the market of younger males who have a busyexpensive by 20 pounds sterling. They offer a wider range of lifestyle which also brings in the need to look good even as the bottlesituations to Hacketts fragrance of what to do and where to go shows, while looking I saw young males in their 20s looking at the unitbecause it has daytime bottles, night-time bottles and also sport and even purchasing the product not even caring of Hugo boss or evenbottles. This is why Hugo Boss could be taking away Hacketts Hackett, this shows me that the lifestyle portrayed from dieselssales. Boss is a TNC a trans national company operating all advertising campaign has proven successful in the long run.around the world they are well known through out and their As I stated in all competitive products it is the advertising that letsadvertising is on the television, posters and units in shops Hackett down, if they are to reach out more they will need to proveeverywhere, they get their word out to the public and they do it themselves with more advertising.well, advertising could be one of the major factors Hackett ismissing out on as they do not have any advertising campaigns inpublic for example around the underground in London or on thehigh-street. Their brand also is well known and they really dohave a say in the market because they are so well known. Alfred Dunhill is also another competitive product against Hackett, other then Dunhill actually buying into Hackett their fragrances also crave their way into the market against Hackett when they are also a business and casual wear brand also about British clothing so this is a very close match to Hackett. They have more then one fragrance and have womens fragrances as well. This means they are already one up on Hackett but they lack what Hackett lacks, standard public advertising, Alfred Dunhill has no advertising so like Hackett they may be a quiet brand which not many people know about only jus the people who are really in the loop. They also aim themselves at middle aged people to slightly younger depending on the persons taste but they are also male and female and do not have a childrens line for attire so they could be just beneath Hackett London.COMPETITIVE PRODUCTS
  16. 16. When I went to London and done my research I found that big brands such as Hugo Boss, Diesel Alfred Dunhill etc. are the main players in the fragrance market and so they show off their business side being professional and also they have their casual side which means they really do appeal to the young mans market in which he will have casual times and also times to be smart so why not go for that type of fragrance which appeals to both side. Another strong point Hugo boss is that they are Hackett has many different styles about it, in which it is of traditional British known worldwide as Hackett is not known as much so people will generally go for the brands that gentleman but also casual. Its style is hard to make wider available because it is they will know so Hackett needs to be able to sell their fragrance and tell their history at the same only aimed at a small situation of business of very different casual wear. On the time in order to successfully sell their product, that’s what I think. other hand the fragrance is different because the fragrance can be used as widely a wanted no matter what you are wearing, where you are going or who you are with It gives the sense of a traditional British smell and gives the essence of a nice scen no matter what you look like in terms of attire. However there is other parts of the brand you have to think of though because it is all about the traditional gentleman, its not for young males but it can go all the wa up to the older gentleman. You need to be in the older style of clothing in order to popularity shop there because otherwise it will just not be your style if you do not want to be almost an elite smart. To me Hackett needs to be smart and casual at the same time so their point of sale unit needs to be friendly but also dead smart too, this will be a good task of its ow as it can be the fun of the fragrance but also the precision and the materials of the point of sale unit.costMARKET RESEARCH
  17. 17. MOOD BOARD
  18. 18. HACKETT started out from being a small stall selling traditional used Mens clothes on Portobello road. This was theyear of 1979.By 1983 they had a thriving business and so they opened their first store under the name HACKETT at the ‘wrong end’of new kings road, they only sold the finest quality second hand British clothing and accessories. From this they grewconsiderable interest from ‘young fogeydom’.By 1985 they were selling new mens clothing on their own line with their vast knowledge of male clothing and so it gavea new traditional style of men’s clothing to the market.1986 they were opening more stores based on specialities for each, tailoring , shirts and ties and a gentlemans accessoryshop. They were on the way up!In 1989 HACKETT received lots of interest from Europeans and so they branched out to Spain in which they were verysuccessful.In 1992 Alfred Dunhill buys shares in Hackett in which they opened their flagship store on Sloane street in the October.Through the years Hackett is involved in many sports such as motor racing and horse racing as well as Polo, this givesthem a big status among the land.By 2006 Hackett have a childrens department and is involved in Aston Martin and the British Rugby union. They have269 across Europe including Dubai and Hong KongBy 2012 Hackett is a globally known brand about traditional British clothing and accessories and so they have a thrivingand bustling business across the globe.Hackett are the leaders in tailored suits and the traditional British dress of males and children as well as ladies.So Hackett now being established for well over 30 years have gained a very good voice in todays market for upmarketclothing accessories and attire for all.BRAND PROFILING
  19. 19. The customer would live in London central in a studio flat, he would holiday in perhaps Switzerland or maybe new York. He would dine in only the best of restaurants and when he is on his travels he would stay at the Ritz or the four seasons hotel around the globe. His job would be in Canary Wharf and would work for a stock trading company making a healthy income for his family. He would be between 25 up to 50 years of age assuming on the Hackett clothing and attire. He would attend evening events such as company dinners and on weekends he would spend his time at his country manor residence perhaps having a pheasant shoot when in season. In the city he would drive his pride and glory Aston Martin high speed vehicle and in the countryside he would drive his Land Rover Defender for his off roading antics. The client wears Hackett attire because he knows it is real quality clothing and that it shows off pure British class and that he wants and knows he must show himself as the best at all times to keep his professional profile. The draw to Hackett is that his wife will buy him the attire and the fragrance as gifts because she knows that Hackett is really what he wants because he knows that he wants to look his best. The client would also wear other high priced attire including Jaeger London and Austin reed tailoring but he would always appreciate Hackett products.CUSTOMER PROFILING

Made out of quality materials who don’t even need to know the brand, this will help me make my further specification ready to design my display unit and what I could use. Also this page will give me relevant information and non relevant information so I know how to make my display unit as appealing as possible.RESEARCH SUMMARY
  21. 21. FURTHER SPECIFICATION AESTHETICS- my P.O.S would have the brand colours of blue and green, it will have the company logo and lettering. There will be images in relation to Hackett and its history and background. This will mean the customer will know all about Hacketts history when buying the product. It will also have lighting too light up the history wall and the product itself. It will also have a mechanism in which the sensitive touch sensor will give the fragrance a burst onto the wrist using a system I will develop. COST- my point of sale display unit will cost no more then the amount of products held on it at rrp. This will mean once it has been restocked it will have paid for itself and can then start to help make money straight off. CUSTOMER- the target market will be for males aged 25 years through to 40. it will be appealing in look and style and so will have to be drawn in to its uniqueness. ERGENOMICS- it will be easy to interact with and there will be no way you could strain yourself reaching for the Hackett bottle. FUNCTION- its function will be to allow for the handling of the bottled product and also to view the history and background of Hackett London while testing the product on your own skin but there will be fabric alternatives if you wish. SIZE- it ill be big enough or on a plinth to be at average eye level of 1 and a half metres so that if you wish to handle the product you don’t‘ strain your arms reaching for it and so its just below or chest height. MATERIALS- the P.O.S will be made of aluminium, mahogany because it is a high quality material and they will be proven to be durable.FURTHER SPECIFICATION
  22. 22. My concept designs I have done I have found my inspiration from lots of different things, from vintage and original designs of products in the 50s to modern designs ranging from vehicles to things associated with Hackett. These designs I have put forward are my ideas on what I could do in order to display the Hackett aftershave splash. The designs I done again from the notes on the left are the best ones I have chosen and that they would be the most feasible to do in order to have it displayed in a store and that it would cost the minimal amount of money, time and labour costs, so these concepts are realistic to be made and used for branding.CONCEPTS
  23. 23. This concept is about a luggage trunk, a vintage piece of luggage only the upper class can afford. This type of trunk would be a steamer trunk or trunks that are used when people go on holiday, I chose this because it adds to the classic traditional British dress and that it will add to the sense of tradition and quality having a well built quality trunk for the brand. The trunk is going to fit into any Hackett shop and in a store such as boots it will stand out and be noticed so customers will be drawn in. its main functions are that it can be used as luggage as well as when open it will show off the aftershave and it will be able to be tested and also extra bottles can be collected from there and paid at the checkout.CONCEPT DESIGNS

I made this design based on the actually H of the Hackett name, its going to have 2 testers at the front and its also going to have the banner showing that it is Hackett, and that the way I designed this it is accessible from both sides for the unit so it’s a good sign if there are a few people at a time, also Im going to have scenario pictures around the base and also Im going to have reinforced glass at the bottom to look better with materials. And so it would stand out a lot compared to the other stands so it will definitely attract the customers.CONCEPT DESIGNS
  25. 25. This design is based o horseracings tote board and that its because of Hacketts sponsorship to do with horses, I have a picket style fence for the testers in which they can have and use, the tote board looks very original and the clocks may even be battery powered to work and that it has to look as authentic as possible complete with door, board and window.CONCEPTS
  26. 26. Step 1: to design the inner frame of the luggage trunk using Styrofoam, this gives me an idea at how the skeleton of the trunk will look before being covered by an inner layer and an outer layer Ive done this so I get an idea of what I would be doing first in order to make a luggage trunk. This will be made of an mdf and screwed together using screws, it will then be able to have a leather décor wrapped on the outside with wood panels placed on the inside for more support and to be robust. This is my original concept, Im changing it slightly so that inside there are no drawers and that it will be hollow with the product held where it is by leather straps to give a more vintage feel to this luggage trunk, it will be scaled down to fit on a shelf so it will be a mini style trunk design primarily to hold a fragrance and on the left the 2nd part will still stay as a scrapbook Step 2: in order for the frame to be dedicated to the Hackett Brand. steadied it needs to have the right There will be a shelf inside so that the main tester will panelling, Louis Viton used beech as be on top and the boxes for sale will be underneath inside panelling for their steamer trunks ready to be taken to the checkout. and so that’s what should be used to Also the point of sale Im producing will be on a stand replicate the most upmarket luggage in the store it ill be 50 cm in height, it will be 25 there is. Or I could go with another way centimetres in depth and each half section will be 30 and simply have the frame and then centimetres in length. canvas or leather around like other products of LV as you can see in the picture. This would make construction easier but would require more craftsmanship with the leather or canvas. Also looking at how the leather is put on is by glue or small rivets so that could make wrapping it on easier.DEVELOPMENT STAGE 1
  27. 27. The other woods I looked at was mdf-medium density fibreboard which I would use on inside panelling because of how cheap it is and how easy it is to work with, I may use this but if I did I would need to have aLooking at leathers, they can be purchased fromleather stores and come in lots of colours, ill usea brown for my luggage trunk meaning that itwill look like a vintage trunk, they arent veryexpensive but It has to be able to look good.A leather that could be used for the trunk could Block board is a good alternative because even though it isbe Heavy Chap Leather Sides, a heavy leather in a man made board it has softwood inside but hardwood onbrown which is hard wearing a sounds to be the outside giving it an expensive look for what it reallysuitable for the product. is, this could go on the inside of the trunk because it wouldAlso another leather that I can use is zora Whole still look aesthetically pleasing.Hide Brown which is used for handbags andother luggage.

I used the internet on how to find out about upholstering a luggage trunk using leather and so these are the instructions I found, to do this I will need, Fabric, Measuring tape, Fabric chalk, Screwdriver, Leather scissors, upholstery tacks, Corner caps Remove the handle using a screwdriver if necessary. Keep all the pieces since the handle will be reattached to the trunk later. Mark the material according to your measurements, then cut the material. Use fabric chalk to avoid a Looking at woods I can use for my trunk I had a permanent mark. Also, mark the inside of the material that will be next to the trunk instead of the side look at a few, beech is a good hardwood with a facing the outside. Use a ruler to ensure you have straight edges, which will make the trunk look neater nice grain, it is durable and is not too expensive once you put the upholstery on it. in comparison to other hardwoods, I would use Fold a hem on one side of the material, making sure its about 1-inch thick and facing down. Tack that beech on the inside panelling of my trunk to give edge onto the corresponding side of the trunk. You may have to place upholstery tacks at both corners of it a high class look. the side youre tacking down. Dont put the tacks in the very corner, however; leave about an inch on the Also I looked at a softwood like pine which ends because you will be folding hems all the way around the material. doesn’t look as pleasing but I is cheaper and it Hem each side and tack the corners down. Make sure the material is pulled taught and the hems face the also has a nice grain, I could also use this in my trunk rather than being upward and exposed. project as all the woods I am looking at are good Add upholstery tacks to secure the sides of this piece of material down. These should resemble rivets in to work with and play basic roles in the the way that they cover the length of the material on each side and spaced about 2 inches apart. construction of my trunk mostly being out of Repeat the process until all the sides of the trunk are covered. sight and are used mainly as a frame for the Add corner caps to each corner of the trunk to provide extra reinforcement to the upholstery. canvas and or leather.

  28. 28. Looking at locks for my trunk I considered a key lock as well as a classicNext I looked at luggage corners for my trunk. The brass latch lock pictured left below. Allcorners I will need are fan shaped corners preferably the locks would have to be screwed andfrom brass or aluminium, this will add great feature so I would again use screws that wouldto the trunk as well as be durable to the floor for be able to not cause to much disruptionwhen being carried around like a normal luggage case to the leather or the wood framing.but even when being a point of sale unit it needs to On the right you can see a rivet, I wouldhave the same function of a trunk because otherwise use this for pinning the leather in theit will not look like on as well as it not being a trunk wood of the trunk, this is how it wasin the end. I understand that some trunks have leather done originally and so I should followbut as well as being traditional it does need to have a the steps of how to make a vintage stylemodern twist to it. It would be fitted to the trunk trunk. The lock below me is a classicusing screws that would go through the leather or lock used on sheds but I think it could becanvas and into the wood framing inside. used for the front lock of the trunk for a vintage look as well as a lock. Through out the last few pages I have decided that Im going to have a frame made of MDF as it will not be seen internally or externally, it will be joined together using the angle brace joint to add extra stability to the frame as well as the design being able to wrap leather around it easier. Also I am going to use brass coloured metal corner caps for durability and appearance as using leather corners could mean that the trunk be damaged easier then if metal was used. Thinking about lock I thought about a lock with a key but I think it could be too complicated and expensive to get a lock mechanism that was suited to the Joins trunk so instead I’m deciding on is a lock usually used on sheds, this will Looking at joins I thought about using the angle braces for the mean that it can have a lock of its own then put on so that if it cannot be inside of the frame, this way construction will be easier and the accessed and the key is lost it isnt very hard to then use bolt cutters on the Mitre joint lock to open its contents. Also I know the leather will be put on using rivets frame will not be seen on the inside anyway so it will be the easiest Ive also thought about using the mitre join for the made for leather and that the corner caps will be nailed in and that the brace for construction. Angle braces are always glued and screwed or frame using glue to hold it together but I think this joint will be screwed together. Externally I will use mahogany for the best nailed is the weakest join of the 3 effect for the classic look.Dowel jointI could use a dowel joint, its strong and could be used for theframe‘This joint is quite easy to make, it consists of drilling accurateholes in both sections of wood and joining them with dowel pegs.Within in industry this is often used to construct flat packfurniture’.DEVELOPMENT STAGE 1
  29. 29. For the scrapbook style on the 2nd part of the luggage trunk I will use a piece of mdf to board up the inside , I will use a mahogany veneer to give it the look of being a hardwood, I will make sure its in the rectangular shape of the trunk and I will glue it into place using an epoxy resin so it will stay in place. For when my frame is to be made ill use a jig to make sure that the pilot holes for the wood frame will be theOn the inside on the trunk for the shelf I am going to use mdf for the shelf itself same through out so that the frame will be consistentbut its going to be layered with a green tweed for the point of sale to be sat on through out so that it will be as precise as possible.and the bottom shelf which holds the stock will also have the stock but the Therefore I will use a jig, it will be good form my framebottom will have a plinth of 16mm plywood for increased effect of a ‘step’ and because if the frame is not perfect then the whole projectso it will give a real effect of luxury as well as tweed which is what lots of will become slanted and it will not look professional atBritish attire is made of so it shows of ‘essentially British’. all.But underneath the shelf I am going to put a mahogany veneer so that ifsomeone looks underneath it looks professional and made from qualitymaterials.Next I decided to look at hinges for the trunk, the partwhich will keep both parts together this means that theywill have to be durable and cannot be cheap buy twice, itneeds to be buy right buy once, I thought about usingparliament hinges as they look nice and would go wellwith the brass corner caps. They are simple and would gowell on my trunk, I also looked at solid drawn hinge as Looking at handles which must go onto my trunk for safe handling Iwell because they are both similar but it is then down to thought about perhaps a leather handle as seen pictured right, I alsowhich one will match the corner caps as well s the handle thought about perhaps having a metal one but I think it wouldon the trunk which I am yet to look at. Also looking at definitely suit the trunk with a leather handle, one of which will bethe piano hinge, the piano hinge could be used but may durable and match the same colour of the leather on the case becausebe too thin for the size of the luggage trunk as it will it cannot be the same colour but slightly lighter or darker because itneed to open up wide. will not look like a quality product.DEVELOPMENT STAGE 1
  30. 30. I could put a latch onto the scrapbook I am going to put a wood coating onto the mahogany to keep it area of the trunk to make it look like it from the elements, this is going to keep it from woodworm opens when it doesn’t so that it gives moisture damage and warping, this will protect the wood for that effect, this would have to be years to come. screwed in by screws and the drill. For my trunk to be secure when it is standing it needs to have feet preferable rubber or metal. This will make it secure and it will not fall over unless pushed so it will be as safe as possible. They will either be screwed in or glued using fabric glue which works on metals as well as rubbers.These are the tools I am going to need for everything Ive looked at so far I I looked at glues for the leather onto wood as well as the cornerhave leather scissors for the leather, the drill and bits for the wood frame caps onto leather too and this is what I found. The leather glue is aand the screws to go with it, Im using chalk to outline the leather with polyurethane based, heat activated glue that remains flexible evenchalk and use the rivets to put the leather in place. The hammer is for once set. This means that you can repair damage on high use areasbanging the rivets in. and not be worried about the damage splitting open. Polyurethane based glue available in five different sizes. Remains flexible once set. Dries in about 15 minutes but continually sets over a 24 hour period. Suitable for use on all leather types in all industries, this glue can be used for leather and so it can also be used for wood as well as metals. There is also fabric glue which is said to be good for use on leathers. What I have learnt On this pages I have found out what I can use to treat my wood so it stays as weatherproof as possible, I have also studied what tools im going to need to complete some tasks on building the trunk, I have also done research into how my leather is going to actually stick and stay onto the wooden frame and what feet I should put onto my trunk to stay as stationary as possible. I have also looked at latches and the security of my trunk k and that they are good to have as well as give it an authentic look, I have also looked at external wood panelling which will connect to the frame to keep the leather I thought about putting wood into the external area of the trunk, from sagging. I have also learned that I should use a leather handle it will reinforce the trunk and also help to give it a vintage look,. held together with rivets and also the right hinge to use. I have I will use rivets to put it into the leather through to the wood, talked about my scrapbook and what Im going to include in it. Also this is the classic way of how luggage trunks are done so rivets I am going to use a jig for the drilling holes of the frame to make it need to be used. The wood I would use would be mahogany to as precise as possible. I now know that im going to have an extra match the other woods of the trunk. To give it the look of being plynth in the shelf made on play and cover it over with tweed which old I can use a I will spray with the scent to make it smell of the scent.DEVELOPMENT STAGE 1

I have said that it will contain at least 5 units of stock on it which I have shown underneath the shelf of the unit so that’s complete, the trunk is nothing seen in a clinical store so it will stand out and attract the buyer due to its dark brown look of the leather included with the lettering of the name. with the sizes shown it will be at eye level and that it will not be able to be placed on its own, it will need to be on a stand because it is no longer going to be a full sized trunk. The lettering as I said will show brand colours of the Hackett name and the green lining around the trunk, it adds a mature touch with the use of leather and the actual product itself, it’s a vintage style luggage trunk and that it is going to look old and styled, it is going to use photos to entice the customer as Im doing a scrapbook of Hacketts history on the right side of the trunk. The materials I have chosen at the moment are the right choice for what im using them for like the wood for the frame and the exterior hardwood as well as the leather im going to be using, also things such as the corner caps and the lock are also good material products, I havent yet looked at the 2 leather straps Im going to use to keep the trunk closed but I will be looking at them next. It is going to be culturally neutral with its use of colours but it needs to have the identity of the brand so I have used the least amount of colours at the moment to stay as neutral as possible. The wood is going to have a high quality finish and Im going to discuss the leather soon as well as the upkeep of the trunk. The unit at the moment is still easy to use it is easily accessible and so ill come back to this very soon. The colours Im going to use must go together nicely, they cannot look out of place at anytime. At the moment I havent looked at ergonomics for the product but I will soon, perhaps having rounded edges or making it easy for the bottle to be handled by the customer. I havent thought about using glass yet and so I may not use it yet. I wont be having booklets for the brand as its going to be visually learning instead about the brand, I wont be having as tick sheet for how you find the smell as it will be down to personal choice and it could affect the brands reputation. I havent talked about having social networking on the unit but I will be talking about it. It will require minimum because it will be made in the factory and then delivered how the product will be shown in the shop. At the moment the trunk will not be able to be used for another brand because it is going to be labelled.SPECIFICATION CHECK-POINT
  32. 32. For my trunk to be safe the edges are going tohave caps so that the edges are round to a certaindegree, also the corners are going to be curved totake away the sharp edging so the wood frame isgoing to be rounded so the leather will wrap roundit nicely. And take away sharp edges. To cut theedges I am going to use a hegnersaw and tosmooth them I am going to use sandpaper to makethe wood framing finished and ready to use. On my scrapbook side Im going to have networking facilities to Hackett and for the brand itself and also people will be able to talk about it. There is also going to be a Facebook link to Hackett as well as their twitter. This gets the advertising for Hackett for free and the word will spread. After looking at my trunk and looking at testers I have thought about using cheap plain ties with the scent of Hacketts aftershave put on them, so the ties will be able to be taken but it will also remind them of the fragrance which could entice them even when away from it to buy the product.I looked at Louis Vuitton and how they make their trunks I found this video and itshows parts of how they build their trunks, how they apply the leather, they sand downthe wood they use and many more points I can use to help build my own trunk.www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5I5ttT-dvw&list=PL475BD779172562DF&index=6DEVELOPMENT STAGE 2
  33. 33. For holding the stock rather then the customer pick it up themselves it is much better to have the stock bottle on show but not let them access it, instead they will have a member of staff get them a bottle from a cabinet underneath the point of sale stand, this way security is tightened. Also the tester bottle will still be accessible so they can still try the product. To finish my external wood I am going to use a colour oil for the wood giving it a walnut finish to look high class and expensive. So after that is done the wood For the scrapbook half of the p.o.s I will use a pin u[p board will be finished on the external to hold up my pictures and testers for the Hackett history side of then trunk. and for something to take away. This way it will be much easier to have it this way then perhaps blue tack or use sell tape in order to hold up pictures and testers. For the shelf to be put in place I am going to use 4 small brackets that are going to be placed at the back and either side at the front of the shelf for stability. This will mean I can put more weight onto the shelf then if I had wooden dowels to hold it as the ones I am going to use are metal.To keep my trunk from closing in on itself when in the store I am going to use this cabinhook at the back of the trunk to keep it open, that way it will never close unexpectedlywhile in the store. To decorate my trunk with the name of HACKETT I am going to use a special paint and a certain brush to put it on there, I may also use a stencil to make sure it is as perfect as can be. I am going to use leather paint, it is Extremely flexible leather paint for painting any design or words onto any leather products including furniture. I can use a standard paintbrush but I will use a fine one for precision.Following extensive development for my project it has finisheddevelopment due to all parts being looked at and either modified ormade better therefore my development is complete.DEVELOPMENT STAGE 2
