Product Designer Needs Your Input

Hey everyone, I need your help with my senior thesis project. I'm working on a snowboarding related product and am using a survey to get general information from the snowboarding community. Click the link below to start the short survey. I really appreciate the help, and in return I plan on posting the final product concept here for you all to see.

You're not working on any fucking project you're doing a project that comprises 1/3rd of your grade. Why don't you just admit that you're not doing shit to help snowboarding and need us to do your homework for you. Now go fist yourself.

As someone who rides hard, a backpack is a hindrance more then anything when riding inbounds (chairlift access terrain).

Totally true we are doing his homework for him, but data is data and at least it's going towards academic purposes. If I was working on his project I would do the same thing...

So much for being friendly

I am a product designer, this is how we do research, this is only a small portion of what I'm up to (not a third of my grade). Please don't pretend you know what I do, I wouldn't tell someone else how to do their job. Research is first of many steps in developing a product. I'll be doing in person interviews of ski patrol members, lift operators, and outfitters this weekend and am trying to gather a large amount of information with only two weeks to do so.

For those of you who say, "the last thing we need is more backpacks." I agree. I'm not blind, I've done extensive market research,and cataloging of the different winter sports packs available. If my intent is not clear to you, that's alright, when asking these sorts of questions my intent shouldn't be clear. I don't want to effect the outcome of the survey by giving away what the exact project is. Yes, it has to do with winter sports gear, that's all I am willing to reveal at the moment.

Why am I working on this sort of project? I will be interviewing for jobs come December and would love to have a job that I am passionate about, that I won't come home from every day wonder why the hell I go there every morning. So I have chosen a topic with specific job targets in mind.


I forgot how unfriendly the internet can be, but thank you so much to all who have taken the survey so far. Your help is much appreciated.

Oh and... post count is now up to an incredible 2

I'm graduating in months, and I've worked for companies such as Nestle, Jakks Pacific, and Diebold (the company that makes ATM machines). I also have two designs going into production next year. Without meaning to sound like a toddler stomping his feet, I am a designer.
