Product/Service

PRODUCT / SERVICE & LOGO


Introduction

INTRODUCTION
In this unit you will ‘invent’ a product or service, create a logo and ‘packaging’ for this product then promote it.
As all the assignments in this unit are connected, the initial research is very important.
You can invent something that does not exist, or improve on an existing product or service.
As you do not actually have to make the product, you can use a fair bit of imagination here.
The feedback and improvement part of planning is a key component of these assignments!
