The information that you are likely to collect and evaluate in this section would have come from a wide range of sources. The appropriateness 51 AQA Design and Technology for GCSE: of the information should have been evaluated against your chosen design task and presented in your design folder. Mood board images should also be evaluated and the colour schemes, patterns, shapes, and so on. tested for their textiles technology suitability. Existing designs and products should also be analysed and evaluated by visiting retail shops and disassembling products to gain a clear understanding of how the product is assembled.
