Winning Product 2016 - Aqua Hook
The Design Ventura 2016 winners are Harrogate Grammar School with Aqua Hook, a water bottle hook that can be clipped to any loop outside of a bag to carry a bottle. Designed with the 2016 brief "Change" in mind, this practical product was a favourite with the judges.
Harrogate Grammar School's 3 x A3 design sheets demonstrate how the team generated and developed their ideas. The sheets really clearly show the team's design and prototyping processes and how they planned to address the criteria set out in the design brief, as well as allowing our shortlisting judges to quickly and clearly understand the final product design:
