Each year Trunki will be running a Design competition. These will be judged before the Summer holidays!

Trunki Learn Competition Winner!

Huge congratulations to Sophie; our first Trunki Learn competition winner!

Sophie designed a fantastic Trunki luggage tag concept that was engaging and functional, without risking any small parts being lost, as well as conducting significant market research to better understand pricing in the market and feedback from potential consumers.

Sophie was the luck winner of a Jurni suitcase and work experience at Trunki HQ! After spending time with Rob Law, hearing all about his Trunki journey, Sophie then worked with our wonderful design team to finalise her luggage tag concept.

The Trunki team really enjoyed meeting Sophie and were very proud to welcome our first Trunki Learn competition winner to the Mothership!

Of course, a new term means a new competition. So, get your thinking caps on and, who knows, you could be the next winner to board the Mothership!

Design Competition – Jurni Luggage Tag

Your Mission!

Rob Law, designer of trunki, would like to develop a luggage tag for the new Jurni suitcase. Jurni is different to our Trunki products -it has its own website and unique branding – so Rob wants a luggage tag that reflects the Jurni brand and its target market, as well as having multifunctional elements that really appeals to travelling teens.

Brief: design and make a multifunctional luggage tag that can be attached to a Jurni.

 Thinking Caps On…

What ideas are already out there?

When designing and developing your product, there are many things to think about before bringing it to market, such as –

 Age group

Who is your consumer/user and what do they want?

How will they use your product?

 Function/use

What makes it desirable, what is its USP (unique selling point)?

How do you want your product to look?

 Costs:

 Materials

Again, how will the materials influence the products look and desirability?

Think about the target market – what materials would suit them?

Manufacture

The materials you use will impact on manufacturing costs!

The more features/technology your product has, the more expensive it will be

Think about the price of your competitors!

Bring Your Idea to Life!

Once you’re confident you’ve covered all the points above, produce a prototype of your product to see if it really works. Remember to get feedback and think what changes you’d make to improve your design idea.

Your Big Moment!

We’ve developed a useful ‘What’s the Big Idea’ sheet for you to download and complete. Don’t forget to include research, feedback and images of your prototype.

Each entry should cover around 2 sides of A4 and be no greater than 10MB file size! Make it fun and engaging, as well as informative. Good luck!
