Task 4: self and peer assessment
The hat that I have chosen is design 1 this is because the hat will be created by the most common results that I was given from my survey and this is the reason why I will be producing a hat based on the results. Not only it will benefit me it will benefit the people too and also by me creating a hat this also means that a majority of people will love the hat as most of them chose the material, colour, size, and accessories. I think my hat is suitable for those who go out and explore and love doing outdoor activities this is the hat is more of a wintery based and this benefits those go out for example hiking and camping. The colour of my hat is suitable for the people this is because majority of them wanted the colour black and this is why I chosen black because most of them would prefer black on their hat instead of the other colours that were given as an option.
The material of my hat I is faux fur and I think is this suitable for the hat as it will keep them warm when doing outdoor activities and also when not doing any sport you can also use the hat when going out with friends and family and also the hat will match any outfit this is because the colour of the hat is black and not only will the hat keep you warm it is also appropriate for ruthless weather conditions and from the survey the results shows me that the most popular material that was chosen was faux fur and this is another reason I have chosen faux fur because it will be suitable for the target audience.
The hat also includes some small accessories for example I have designed the hats and added buttons this is because without the buttons the hat will look boring but with the buttons on the hat is makes the hat prettier and appealing and from the survey I handed out the results showed me that most of the people would prefer buttons on the hat. The hat is being created from the results I was given from the survey.
However, the hat also has some weakness for example some people may not like the colour and the accessories this is because they may want a brighter colour as this make the hand stand out and different also the market research shows me that most of people prefer bright colours and some may not like buttons on their hats. Another weakness is that when doing activities and sports the material will make them feel hot and this means that they will take the hat off and will not use it when doing activities and this is a problem as the hat is being created for those who like going out and doing outdoor activities. Also the accessories will not be the same colour of the hat, but some people may want it to be the same.
Overall, I think that my hat will be suitable this is because I am producing a hat based on the results that I was given and this is very important as I will know what they will like on their hats as I got the information and not only that more people will purchase the hat as most of the people like the colour, accessories, size that I have put in the survey. Also the hat is suitable for the those who enjoy going out and doing outdoor activities and exploring and this is why I have chosen this hat because most of the people would purchase it and prefer it more than the other hat. Even though there are some weaknesses I think this hat is the best option as the hat is based on their requirements and by me following the market research this would not only help me it would benefit progress ahead this is because most of people will purchase the hat and this will increase sales and by progress ahead selling these doesn’t mean that the people who have done y survey will only buy there might be other people who might purchase the hat and that will also increase sales.
What do you think about this hat?
Looking at my peer feedback they have said my hat is appealing. Also from the feedback they have said that m hat is suitable for my target audience which is 15-18 year olds and I wanted my peer to say this as this is the key thing because if I don’t make a hat and it is not suitable for my target audience there is no point of me making a hat. My peer also mentioned that the hat looks cool for the teenagers this means that the hat looks fashionable and this is also important because I want my hat to look attractive this if the people find it appealing that means they will most likely purchase the hat. The feedback has made me confident because I want the people to find my hat attractive and cool and nice looking. They also think that the hat is very suitable for the winter and this is great because I have design the hat for winter and those who love going out to explore and doing outdoor activities.
Looking at my feedback again they have said that my hat is very nice looking and that they like that I have added buttons because it stands out and makes the hat very appealing. Just like peer 1, peer 2 has said that the hat looks suitable for my target audience. They also have said that my hat is very wintery based and its suitable for those who go out and do activities as it will keep them warm.
What improvements would you make?
Looking from the feedback my peer said that my hat isn’t suitable for summer and spring this is because some people may find it attractive but won’t purchase it because they are looking for a summer hat and the hat I have created won’t be suitable for that weather. Also from the feedback my peer has mentioned that the colour is too dull and boring and that the design of the hat is too plain and I should add more accessories.
From the feedback my peer has said that the button doesn’t look nice as the colour blue doesn’t match with the colour scheme. They also have said that the colour of my hat is dull and I shall add more colours to make it stand out more and that will make it more appealing. Also my peer has said that the design of the hat looks too appropriate for female and doesn’t look suitable for males.
What I think about the feedback?
Overall, I was happy that the they have mentioned that my hat is suitable for my target audience and that they find the colour very appealing and attractive and this is a very good thing as I want the people to find it nice looking. Also they have said that my hat is very suitable for the winter as this is because I have created my hat for winter and those who enjoy going out and doing outdoor activities and exploring for example camping, rock climbing, and hiking.
