Maker Design - Method

Nothing speaks more than a maker's method. For some it starts
with an idea in a coffee shop, others it's the complex mix of tools, materials
and craft. The projects that will shine here will be strong in new methods,
strong in craft and most likely to generate lots of  ''how did you do that'' discussion.

Your project will fall into one of the following markets:

Domestic - Domestic Maker projects represent the consumer connecting with a unique piece, be it a tool for home, an artefact or a practical item to assist with a regular home function.

Community - Community Maker projects represent the community connecting with your project. It might be an item to create a mood, a learning device to help advance your community or a practical item to assist with a community function.

Commercial - Commercial Maker projects find their way into corporate and government environments, sometimes as highly functional low production runs, other times as one off custom items designed specifically for task. Projects that show the maker's skill, courage and design insights will shine here.
