GROUP PROJECT. The toy company Pala done had asked us to develop our own toy based on their original styles, in doing so we had to create a virtual business plan and carry out most of the techniques involved in starting a small business. We created a personalised card game that let the consumer decide their own graphics and buy the supplies and examples off line. I was responsible for researching pricing for the die cast printing and packaging materials, as well as designing new card games for all ages. This allowed me to gain experience in a professional aspect and incorporating other peoples ideas and skills to produce the optimum outcome.
