The goal for this project was to create a lighting product based on a chosen target audience, research and interviews as well as provide informational posters regarding the product created.
Depending on the outdoor activities being done after dark, users might require different types of light sources, such as a lantern, a flashlight or a headlamp, but it is inconvenient to bring all 3 kinds and impractical to rely on one type for all lighting needs.
Due to the limitations of current market products, there is a need for a multi purpose camping light that offers a more efficient and convenient lighting solution to those who do outdoor activities after dark.
Glo-Pro is a 3-in-one device for those who
require various types of light sources to do
outdoor activities after dark, such as backpackers, hikers and campers.
