• Welcome to BASSment Designs

    BASSment Design are glad to welcome you to our online blog following the progress of our second year product design project “Demo Mode”.
    The breif we have been given is to explore and understand the use of sound and audio and incorporate this experience into a visually stimulating and playful product.
    We hope to look into ways we can change a physical movement or analogue input and change into a modern digital style output.
    As we blog our progress we hope to be able to read your thoughts and comments on what we have done and be able to take them into consideration for our later designs.
