Spirit Level Product
Dan Marshall Designs worked with a student from Cardiff Metropolitan University to produce a barbell concept for gym exercise. The product had to be cost effective, lightweight, durable, portable and easy-to-use.
This project only required sketching as the client selected a few designs to produce further with an external manufacturer.
To explore the needs of the client an initial set of CAD designs were produced of barbells. This would help grasp the ergonomic requirements of the product. The product had to be lightweight, blend in with gym equipment and be visible in all positions. The following concepts were produced.
