This was a six week project where we were asked to work individually to design and develop multiple responses to three typical product design 'client briefs.'
Imagining applying for a Product Design job but the application process only allows space for a 10 page portfolio. The employer wants applicants to showcase their competencies in sketching, idea generation, concept development, form creation, 3D modelling and rendering.
Our three objects were determined by Render Weekly, a platform created for industrial design rendering.
“Render Weekly was formed in April of 2018 as an idea to help artists and designers be inspired and showcase their work. The goal of Render Weekly is to provide a free platform where followers can reach out, improve their 3D modeling and rendering skills, connect with other students and professionals, and build their portfolio with unique weekly prompts. We are committed to curating and creating powerful product design imagery.”
