Industrial Design & Form-Giving
Industrial design covers the gamut of product development process, but is commonly understood as styling the “look and feel” of a product. This is where your vision really starts to come to life and evolve in different directions. Ideation is translated into sketches and marker renderings to visually explore a wide range of product formats and features. Think of this as free-flowing visualised brainstorming. These ideas are grouped into coherent themes and distilled into specific concept directions for presentation and discussion.
For the SoundShield project we explored various shapes and physical relationships between product elements such as headset and dock, cable management, screen size, button design, and colour themes. We realised that by utilizing a large touch screen we could integrate the “buttons” into the screen for more flexibility in the interface, simplifying the features and achieving a cleaner aesthetic.
