#84080 3D Renders And Sketches

Posted by motadesign on 13 July 2012 - 05:42 PM

Thank you for your feedback, Parel. There are changes I would like to do to the front end, I just got Modo so went ahead and finished what I had while training my self with Modo.

I was in the habit of using a ballpoint pen, scanning and adding some color or details with Photoshop. After I saw a video you did using Photoshop from start to finish on a sketch it inspired me to do so. Things that you taught in that video made a difference in my work flow.

Some more views without some details added.

I would make the corners less sharp and put the prototype in the real bathroom environment near the sink to see how it fits with the rest

#83449 Fellow Furniture Designers, Which Cad Software Are You Using? Solidworks Or A...

Posted by vander on 16 February 2012 - 06:08 AM

Of course, I am aware that Solidworks 2012 is way full of functions and features when compared with AutoCAD but my only complain is that in Solidworks, I have to create my concepts parts by parts, literally before going to assembly mode.

Whereas in AutoCAD, I can just draft out the whole concept in a single layout.

Or is there a way to do so in Solidworks as well.

Its actually quite easy to build entire assemblies as parts, you can simply check or uncheck the merge box when creating new features, or only selectively add which parts will be joined, cut, or modified.

If it is not an overly complicated assembly I find this can actually be quicker, as you can use existing references to build additional parts without having to go back and forth between the assembly and individual parts. Also in this way I can also design multiple components that are referencing certain control dimensions that can easily be modified, which allows the whole model to update all at once.

#83244 Advice On Direction

Posted by willdempsey on 03 January 2012 - 12:58 PM

Hi, I'm Will Dempsey. Pretty new to this site, been looking through some of the pages and I am massively impressed by the standard. I am currently in my third year of a Materials Science and Engineering course at Manchester University. I have always been interested in design but did not really appreciate the scope for a career in it. in the last couple of years I have become aware of the array of jobs in it and am extremely keen to head in that direction. The course I am currently on does not allow for much/if any creative thinking and I don't think it will lead directly into a design career.

My question is, what would be the best move for me to eventually make my way into the product design career area? Would any companies take me on as an apprentice in design with just a Material Science Degree? Is the anything I can do to make myself more likely to be taken on by a company etc.?

Thanks a lot for any advice

#82434 Customisable/modular Chair

Posted by jkbaker on 26 September 2011 - 02:33 AM

I like the idea for the chair, however i can't understand why your intending to aim it purely at students. An adjustable chair can be a useful tool for anyone who spends copious amounts of time sitting, you might want to rethink aiming this at a broader market.

Aesthetically, it looks beautiful, the quality is really good. Just wish it was a plausible idea for todays technology. Also the name "Dyke" is not great.. I understand it is a word play on the word "bike" but it means something completely different here in the UK

#82202 Another 'what Am I Doing Wrong' Portfolio And Cv

Posted by JoeMattley on 19 August 2011 - 12:11 PM


I'll start off with the CV, and please, don't take this as harsh, it's intended to be advice in order for you to get a job :D The CV, is like reading an essay. Use bullet points, it breaks things up a bit, only highlight your key skills, skills which your future employer would want to see.

Remove "Martin Harwood, Curricular Vitae", we know it's a CV you've told me your attaching it!

Through my time at university I have developed numerous skills. I have adapted my current skills to allow me to work efficiently either individually or as a member of a team in the design industry. I have learnt to manage multiple ongoing projects, which has helped me to manage my time effectively. Since sixth form I have been passionate and have a positive work ethic for product design, I am keen to improve on my current skills which I believe would be beneficial in many ways. I have good time management and pride myself on being able to keep too a deadline whilst ensuring my work is at a high standard.

This paragraph is very, generic. I know you went to university, you've told me :D You want this to be no more than 4 lines, telling me what skills you have and what you can offer me. Tell me if you have those mechanical skills, concept skills etc. Tell me about your design skills, time keeping and being passionate I can get from reading through your CV and looking at your portfolio.

Your a designer, maybe try a new approach and think outside the business box. Think outside what is normal for a CV. You have 8 seconds to get someones attention, or it is going in the bin/not being printed out. The role I am in currently, someone sent a CV similar to that (wasn't yours) and because we couldn't find the skills we wasn't interested.

I have done a quick Google search to bring up some other design CVs, have a look at them, and take ideas from them to make your CV more snappy and jumpy!

If you have to compete with ones with colour, and broken up nicely, then your going to struggle. Best bet is, go back to the drawing board, you have all the information you need to make your CV.

#81964 Failed Uni... Now What?

Posted by ID2011 on 17 July 2011 - 11:52 AM

It will be harder to get a well paid job. Typically graduates can expect higher wages. A degree just basically ticks a box. Though in general, i have found that people never look at my results and are more interested in the portfolio. If you have a great portfolio then it will help you a lot.

If finishing uni isnt an option maybe you could aim for certification of software skills.

It might be a bit abrupt to ask, but what caused you to fail? What elements of the course do you love/hate?
Evaluate your strengths and weaknesses so that you can focus on what you are good at and market yourself better.

#81777 Feedback Please

Posted by Sketchyd on 02 July 2011 - 10:27 AM

Click to enter, logo is cool, but the page isn't very appealing.

Once I enter the page, the icons for creation, projects, and personalia are a bit ambiguous.
They all look the same, and they remind me of trashcans... or a bird.

Click on creations, your text is "justified," this looks odd, what was your reasoning behind this?
I dont want to have to click on a blank box to see what the project is. And because it's blank, it looks like an error and the images aren't loading. I'm not really sure what brandmark means, which makes me wonder what the difference between the 3 sections are.

Theres alot of blue... not really feeling it. Its a bit frustrating that I need to click many times to actually get to see the content.

Think of it as a first draft and try again. If you are coding this yourself and aren't very good, try looking into free portfolio sites, theres alot out there. For example: carbonmade.com

#81662 Advice On Finding A Placement/intern-Ship

Posted by cash68 on 20 June 2011 - 05:46 PM

I would not send your whole portfolio. Send a teaser. Showing too much work at once is overwhelming, and can leave the recruiters/companies a bit critical of some of your weaker work. Think of it like dating. You don't go straight to sex. Tease them a little bit with a resume, cover letter (that is not just a form letter, but one that expresses why you WANT to work there, and what you bring to the table that other people will not), and a small, 8.5" x 11" teaser. The teaser should have your name, contact info, and a small example of some of your work.

Then, the most important bit, wait 2-3 days, and call or SHOW UP. Do not ask whether or not you "made the cut". Ask for feedback. Say you have a lot more to show, and ask if there's anything else you could show them. This will allow you to tailor WHAT you are showing to, what they are interested in. It also develops a dialogue and form of communication. Be open to ANY feedback. I am in my current job because after they rejected me, I asked for just a basic portfolio review with professional designers, not a job. After getting some feedback, I modified my portfolio and showed them what I had a few days later. This was enough to land contract work. That later became a fulltime job.

#80830 Body Armour Concept

Posted by mizbot on 18 March 2011 - 03:34 PM

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to show you guys my Body armour project which i called... Evo "falcon". This project was a mixture of my branding and product design capabilities, its been a while since i finished it but itd be nice to get some thoughts, ideas and comments

I started off with a brand name which I called EVO Equipment, the idea being that EVO creates revolutionary sports gear that is versatile and high tech. The idea came for the armour was a mixture of car air bag tech and how it could be integrated into motor cycle jackets, then i went a bit further and thought well if you made it light enough and flexible it could be used in any sport situation and so the EVO falcon body armour was born...

The idea is that when a high impact is detected on the surface of the armour, the braces around the front that surround the chest and back inflate. Air.. Co2, shoots from a cannister behind the wearer into the bags inflating them instantly. I wanted to be realistic in the sense that there is only certain size CO2 bottle that a person could carry whilst doing sports and the size of the airbags and that there had to be as little restriction to movement as possible, so there are gaps in the armour before the bags inflate but after were looking at full body protection.

anyways thats the idea...i didnt want to spend too much time creating the armour in a 3d package so i rendered them up in PS, i might 3d it up soon if i get time...
