Arre posted a topic in Design DiscussionsHi folks, Been a long time, and my user account was even deleted Anyways I am an industrial designer who hit a problem at work, usually I design various products, but now my boss wants me to design the packaging as well... But I don't really know were to start, since I don't have any education at all in it. For starters I've come up with a really nice designs, which I have got praised for, on the other hand is these designs made in hard paper (very thick paper) and not fold-able, which leads to a lot of "air transportation". And since I don't have any knowledge in paper/package design at all I've hit the wall so to say, I don't really know how to make these nice designs, since the lack of material knowledge (paper in this case) Anyone that is in the same position or have any tips regarding package design, maybe some good books of what you should/shouldn't do when it comes to package design. Best regards, Arre

breakbeat12 posted a topic in Design DiscussionsI was just wondering if anyone could tell me the different between inclusive design and universal design. The only difference to my understanding is that inclusive design doesn't focus on age or disability as much as universal design. I'm not even sure if that's right. Any help appreciated.
Bryce James Parker posted a topic in Finished ProjectsHey everyone My name is Bryce Parker and I have entered a Red Bull competition for Sally Fitzgibbons which gets you to design a surfboard design that may be used as Sally's board design for when she tours. My design is called 'Ink Splats and Tessellation Pats' and has been created using Ink, watercolour paper then some photoshop editing, arrangement, colourization and the final design came out like the picture at the end of the post. You can actually vote for my surfboard design by clicking the link below Link: http://tiny.cc/dd7tn Would be great to get some feedback on it as I'm currently about to become an Art Uni student and will hopefully have this in my folio for presentation. Also, please do give it a vote if you like it as well, would highly appreciate it

Design Tradeshows And Exhibitions
Christopher French posted a topic in Design DiscussionsHi I am writing a dissertation on the importance of tradeshows and exhibitions to the european design industry. They play a huge role in how products are bought for retail and the promotion of products and design in general. I am trying to understand just what both the visitors to tradeshows and exhibitors really get from them. I have created two surveys which, if you can spare a few minutes, I would appreciate if you completed. I have one relating to the experiences of exhibitors and one for visitors. If you have had experience of visiting a european design tradeshow then please complete the following survey:http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LYMHD3S. If you have experience of exhibiting at european design tradeshow the please complete thhis survey:http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3RDLPL3. If you have experience as both a visitor and exhibitor then please fill in both. Many thanks in advance for your help, you will be helping me finish my degree and I am very grateful. I am hoping to create a easy to navigate guide that characterises the tradeshows available in europe so that companies and designers can make better decisions as to where they visit or exhibit at. There is a myriad of tradeshows and exhibitions and sometimes it is hard to really understand where and which is most beneficial. This is most pertinent at the moment because of the effects the global recession is having on all of our purse strings. If you have any other comments or reflection then please add them below. Once again, many thanks.
Retro-Modern Concept Motorcycle
Isaac Chavira posted a topic in Sketches & RenderingsThis image is not a master piece but you get my idea. I really need to dig out my WACOM, lol. This is a concept 'sketch' (emphasis on sketch) of a retro modern cafe racer. It features a 1690cc V-twin engine by S&S, TTX-36R rear shock by Ohlin's, CNC machined 7075T front fork and swing arm, Carbon fiber tank and seat pan, CNC machined mirrors and controls. There's too much more to list like it's titanium braided brake lines or it's 330mm Brembo rotors and calipers. So, let's just say "Yeah it's got a HEMI". I would really love to start my own custom motorcycle and accessories company. I think I will 3D model this beats soon. The engine will take quite some time to model though. Oh I forgot my Formula One inspired front suspension which I will not show because I want to file a patent. Tools used: Bic ballpoint pen 8.5" x 11.0" Copy paper HP Photosmart printer/scanner Photoshop CS5.1 x64 Extended

How To Produce A Watch?
Eldajna posted a topic in Design DiscussionsIf one has designed a watch and wants to manufacture the whole thing, without including a investor or an existing watch company, where does one go? First, I'm in need of some information of watch producers and manufacturers mainly in europe. But if there are cheap, BUT GOOD producers in ASIA or other parts of the world, I would gladly have their www/iPhone/@ or whatever info please:D Second, I have absolutely NO idea of how much a watch module costs to produce. Obviously, it depends on the amount and the type of parts and watch. Is there any guideline or approximation please hit me with it! I will be absolutely thrilled for all information given to me!

Design Charity/social Enterprise Idea
i7987468 posted a topic in Design DiscussionsHi all I am a Student at the University of Bournemouth studying product design and I am getting sick of good ideas that would greatly benefit people across the globe getting put aside because they do not pose a great potential for financial gain. Therefore I am attempting to set up a Social Enterprise that takes all of these ideas that have been put aside and attempt to create products from these with no aim for personal or financial benefit. The company shall be funded by advertising, donations and a small revenue generated by products. Effectively this revenue will only aim to help cover expenses and fuel the next batch of products. This way the products can be functional and affordable to the targeted group.I am sure there are a million problems with this idea, so I am asking for you to pick it apart so that the concept can be refined. Along with any Ideas that could be helpful. Many Thanks Together we can change the world !!!! Jake

Major Project- Football Shin Pad
dp_sal posted a topic in Projects in ProgressHi, I'm current working on a major project related to shin guards in Football (Soccer for the yanks). I've set up a very short questionnaire to help justify some of the insights I've found during research and hopefully to uncover some new ones. Obviously the more people I can get to do it the better. I'd be incredibly grateful to anyone who spare's the time to do it and doubly grateful to anyone who circulates it further to people they know who play football (maybe a Sunday league or 5 a side team). Please only complete it if you play or have played football. Here's the link http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/B5YBD86. Thanks
