Design Studio Skateboard Deck
|DISCOVER STAGE||Write your responses in these blocks.|
|What did you learn about the wood used in skateboards?||I learned that there were different types of grain for the wood used in skateboards, one of them being long grain.|
|What did you learn about stacking wood for the deck?||I learned that there were 7 layers and that we start from the 7th layer and that it takes 8 hours for three layers to dry so we have to carefully and effectively use our time to stack them evenly.|
|Why are there so many layers used?||There’s so many layers used so the board can be sturdy, durable, and support the weight of a human being.|
|DEFINE STAGE||Write your responses in these blocks.|
|What was everything that needed to be done to prepare for your board?
What tools/materials did you use?
|We needed Mr.gerry’s special high quality glue, a glue roller, the board layers stacked in a specific way so we didnt forget which layer was which and a special bag and airpumps to make the bag airtight around the skateboard layers (which we did last).|
|What were the constraints in building a skateboard deck?||The layers had to be stacked a certain way and i had to apply the glue, put the layers of the board in an air bag to compress them by using an air pump to seal them overnight so they stay attached all within a 7 minute time-frame before the glue dried.|
|DESIGN STAGE||Write your responses in these blocks.|
|What are four (2) graphic designs for your skateboard deck?
• List the things that work well about each design.
• Add an image for each one.
|1. An llustration of a cartoon fox wearing fluffy boah around its neck.||2. A strange looking monster with button eyes, body resembles a two legged creature.|
|Based on the information you have provided above…
• Which design is most likely to be successful?
• What factor was the most important in helping you decide?
|The monster because its more abstract and simple, it would contradict the fancy designs if i were to add some to the skateboard
Simplicity and the ability to add whatever else i want and it wouldnt lookto out of place if there was alot of detail.
|DEVELOP STAGE||Write your responses in these blocks.|
|List the materials and supplies you will need for the design that you picked.||I Would need stickers, laser cutter and spray paint.|
|Write any problems you have and any changes you made to your designs and why.||We changed the whole design of the skateboard and made it maker based.|
|DELIVER STAGE||Write your responses in these blocks.|
|Does your designs meet the requirements?
Compare your design to the requirements you listed in discover stage.
Does it meet all of the requirements? If not, what didn’t it meet and why not?
|Yes, we have a wheatpaste image, the skateboard is still in layers, still stuck together and intact, Painted the skateboard with acrylic paint, laser cutted a design, and added a special type of sticker i forgot the name of.|
|Does it meet constraints?
Compare your design to the constraints you listed in define stage. Does it meet all of the constraints? If not, what didn’t it meet and why not?
|It meets all of the constraints, the skateboard is even and intact, the requirements were met. We just need to use a template to spray paint a design/words on it and we’re finished|
|What changes could you have made to improve your design?||Put details on the back maybe, huge type pography and more detail maybe where needed|
