Husqvarna Lawn Care
Fertilizer storage designed to fit within sustainable lawn care system
In the age of sustainability, the demand for eco-friendly design is ever increasing. People are slowly converting their day to day routines and everyday gadgets to more environmentally conscious tools. My teammates and I were each tasked to design one product within a lawn care system — storage, dispenser, and water. Together, we created a sustainable system aimed to promote eco-friendly habits.
I created a basic prototype for our system’s app. The mobile app is designed to help track the system’s water and fertilizer usage as well as help users identify lawn size.
Individual product: storage
For my individual product, I was tasked with designing fertilizer storage. My product primarily interacts with fertilizer distribution. However, it considers multiple criteria of the system and works alongside other products as well.
Persona Development — As a team, we created a persona to guide our system design. From this specific target audience, basic criteria was developed.
Brand Research — We researched our chosen brand, Husqvarna, looking at the brand’s general mission and history and also analyzed form to further guide our product form designs.
Ideating — Sketches leading up to final concept and sketches of final concept refinement. Incorporated brand image and form.
Models — Process models and renders. Final model 3D printed and finished at 1/4 scale.
