    Hi, I'm an A level student working on a project for my Product Design A-level. For this project we are given the instruction to choose any 'problem' in today's society, and make a product that assists in 'fixing' it in some sort of way.
    Some examples of problems would include 'sleep deprivation', 'incorrect seating posture', 'storage space within a household' and 'personal safety from potential attackers'. In my case, I chose my project on 'water conservation within a household environment'.

    Down the line and I'm now at the Initial Designs stage of my project. And this is where I'm a little stuck. I set my Design Brief and had my target audience be that of small children - my aim is to design a product that entertains young children with the basis of helping in some way to conserve water. This could be either in a way that literally conserves water or in a way that educates the child.

    I've thought up some random ideas, for example, but haven't been able to produce a solid design that I feel fits best with my brief.
    Could anyone possibly assist in helping me with some possible ideas or refer me to some pre-existing products I could get some inspiration from?

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    Not sure if you've solved this problem already, but your sketching might contribute to having little inspiration. At the initial ideas stage, you need to come up with literally anything comes to mind. It doesn't matter how impractical or unsuitable it may seem, you've got to let it all flow out. Don't worry about how good your sketches appear (they're incredible by the way!) but focus on imagining ways the problem could be solved.
