Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

Business Name

Wicked Lasers

What do you do?

Inspire dreams by providing the highest powered handheld laser and flashlight products.

What is the product designed to do?

The world's most powerful flashlight needs a redesign.

List the size and weight requirement(s) for your product design

57mm x 230mm

Dimension files and drawings will be posted.

List all other important design requirements

Must use the same battery configuration as provided, the reflector and outer lenses should be the same as the current Torch (files will be posted)

Will this product need to be certified?

No

What is your industry?

Flashlight and Geeks

Describe the end users of your product design

Collectors of flashlights and people who want a flashlight so powerful it can cook eggs and burn wood.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your product design?

It should embody the Wicked Lasers design philosophy. It should look sci-fi and powerful. However, the Torch is not a Wicked Lasers, its a flashlight, so it should look significantly different than our laser products, namely the Spyder III Arctic

What products will this new product compete with?

There are no other burning flashlights in the world

What is your target retail price?

$99.95 - $149.95

What product design styles do you like?

Heavy Duty - Its a flamethrower in a flashlight so it should look the part. However, it needs to be easy to manufacture. Its always disappointing turning down very artistic concepts because its too complicated to manufacture. Its important that its cost-effective to manufacture the aircraft grade aluminum casing.

What colors do you want to see in your product design?

It should be black, however, we are open to other colors if it can look better than black. We would prefer a single color hard type anodization.

What colors do you NOT want to see in your product design?

Pink, Pastel, etc. Many colors do not look good with anodized aluminum.

What adjectives should best describe your product design?

Heavy Duty, Elegant, Futuristic Weapon

Describe the operating environment for the product.

This product can be used anywhere since its a flashlight, but we would recommend it not be used in easily flammable environments

Do you have additional info or links you'd like to share?

Try to imagine what the coolest looking flashlight out of a sci-fi movie (like Star Wars) would make a burning flashlight look like. It should be elegant and simple to manufacture as well as cheap to manufacture.

Brief updates

Sorry for the delay with the dimensional drawing, it will be posted soon, and we will extend the contest.

Files are added - Torch_measurements.Jpg is the current Torch measurements. Try to keep the size of the head/bulb section about the same as the file if possible. You can make it a little smaller or a little bigger for style, but it should be roughly the same.

Battery_size.jpg is the actual size of the battery we are using. You can definitely make the battery tube thicker for style reasons

Other notes:

Feel free to change the shape as you like, I have seen some very good designs so far and I think that a Light-saber like design would be an awesome concept.
