BREIF:TASK ANALYSIS Design a new point of sale display unit for a male grooming company. The unit must display at least one product from their range and must clearly identify the brand. SITUATION: Hackett London is a very classy and established brand full of British traditionalism however, has it become stuck in the past? The brand itself needs to become more accessible to younger and older generations while maintaining its nesh in the market as a British institution because this is a very rare quality and there are not many companies in competition with Hackett that can boast this heritage.SIZE: ENVIROMENT: MANUFACTURE:A point od sale display unit needs to be large in a The sale unit will be within a store to Theses point of sale stands are designed to beshop so that it stands out from other units and protect the products from theft.

PURPOSE: COST: The point of sale stand for Hackett should look The brand of Hackett London is a medium range of attractive and reflect the brand so that people are price. The point of sale stand must not look cheap or attracted to look at it and can remember its as the have a poor unattractive design however, it needs to be Hackett brand. It should help promote sales of the cost effective so that it does not cost a fortune as this product and draw people over to the stand from the would be unnecessary.

Function:• The stand must use high end materials so that it looks modern and expensive this will help promote the brand and increase sales.• In the design process I must consider parts that are difficult to male so that I can find a way of making the easily.• The function of the stand is very important but it also needs to look good as well as work well to be affective.• I should design and create jigs to help make the manufacture process more accurate and efficient.

CUSTOMER PROFILINGMy customer for the brand Hackett London isaimed at middle class but aspires to dress andlook like upper class. Therefor, Hackett tailorsits branding towards youngprofessionals, people who have left universityand have obtained a job in the city perhaps as atrainee lawyer so although they have a high endjob and status, they are consumed by universitydebt so they are unable to afford extremelyhigh end brands. Hackett also tries to influencethe jet set as they often uses pictures of youngpeople on speed boats at the playground of therich, however there are no images used ofsuper yachts so this demonstrates how thebrand is not at top but makes it look glamorousand attractive to the customer. The customer ismost likely young and living in a higher end flatclose to there place of work. People will bymainly business ware from Hackett and you cansee this in much of their advertising althoughthis is linked with a collection of casual warewith clothing aimed towards holidays but it stilllooks glamorous. Hackett also has sportingheritage so they sell many items that arefocused on rugby such as rugby shirts for theircustomer this also tells us a lot about thecustomer in that they play sports and are outgoing along side their professional work andcareers. The age range of people who buyHackett will depend on their life style andsituation for example. Young professionals mayuse the brand from 18 to 25 or maybe 30however, less well off people may ware thebrand through out their life as they see it ashigh end for their budget. My customer wouldhave a good quality car such as a BMW, Audi orMercedes but not to the level of Ferrari orPorsche as these are too expensive and brandssuch as Channel or Armani would be used. Mycustomer may be a mail or female as she maybuy him the product as a gift.
