Welcome to my Blog

I approach design holistically and with an open-mind, as I enjoy meeting and collaborating with new and interesting people. As I believe in working in a multi-disciplinary environment to seek out innovation and creativity.

Final Concept – CAD Render

I have used a rendering program on CAD to develop the product further.

BODY AND FRAME RENDER 7

Above, I have explored translucent materials, for the main frame and a dark colour for the inflatable beams. I was looking into a range of colours, to determine how they could/ could not influence the mood and therefore creative expression of the users of this product.

I then wanted to see how a coloured main frame and clear/ plain coloured beams would look aesthetically and how this may impact on the users.

Final Concept – CAD

I have now developed the product using model making. Now, I want to put this on CAD, using the specific dimensions that has been taken from the model making stage.

I have developed this further, as you can see below:

Now that I have my final concept, I will assemble the parts, as shown below:

Final Concept – Model Developments

I have a final concept, that I now want to test using model making. As you can see below, I have used a variety of card and other materials to test the shape and how it will connect up.

Final Concept – Logistics

I now have a final concept, I just need to pull it apart and put it back together. As I need to confirm the details of the concept, like the materials being used, how it will made and the dimensions of the design to scale and/ to 1/5 scale. This is important at this stage, before I go any further as this may influence the design.

Final Concept – Research

I have decided upon a final concept, this being the Portable Training Day Space. Below, I have explored the function through doing some preliminary research. As well as, exploring how the form is affected by these boundaries like soundproofing, material choice and ways to inflate or keep a space up, that is quite large.

Moleskin book further research on materials and mechanics…

I have gone back to some of my original concepts, to explore how the space can be maximised using quite geometric shapes, as shown below:
