Stages of Our Work
Research & Analysis 12 items of inspiration, including sketched and noted analysis of elements that may become inspiration in the next stage. Concept Development (4-2-1) FOUR initial concepts sketched out, can be in Orthographic view, schematic sketch with notations. TWO concept sketches(include Isometric Sketches of your Designs) from the initial FOUR, including Peer Review for suggestions. One proposed Design from the TWO above with notations and Peer Review. Orthographic and Isometric drawing of your proposed design, include colour to showcase suggestions of proposed materials.
Further Development This stage is where you start adding greater detail and resolution to your proposed design, articulate materials and possible functioning parts to be used. Deconstruct your proposed design into separate parts, will look very much like an exploded view of your Lamp Design, all materials and parts noted.
3D Prototype This is the stage where you actualize your proposed design in 3D, viewing all angles, and further developing your design, by refining all parts and adding colour and texture of materials on your Lamp.
Final Package The entire package will be exported into one PDF document, including a title page with your best shot of proposed design on the cover. All your digital files will be submitted (2D & 3D) as well to showcase and document proof of work.
Package Dimensions 17" X 11" , you can place all your stages into Google Slides and export it as a PDF document.
