The target group of this study was the entrepreneurs running their businesses near Chulabhorn dam who had potentiality for product development and production. The data were collected from documents and fieldworks employing a survey and a questionnaire. The data were analyzed to establish a framework for the product creation, and the results were reported descriptively to illustrate the product design.
The results revealed that the products found in the research site were produced by community enterprises, which depended mainly on local raw materials and labor. The target market was Kon San district market, Chaiyaphum province. It was found, however, that the enterprises did not have their own brands, resulting in customers’ lower recognition of the products, and that they did not have appropriate and effective advertising campaigns to attract target customers. Based on the findings of the study, a framework for creative product development was developed. The main focus was to design brands for the products of the community enterprises to increase customers’ product recognition. In addition, new products were suggested to increase the attractiveness of the products of these enterprises as well as to expand the markets. Finally, brand was specially designed for each product adopting the local wisdom of utilizing the community’s resource to create an identity for the products and the communities around Chulabhorn dam.
