This was the first day of 3D design which we began by doing a series of random drawings that we then had to use as the basis for the creation of several products. We began with this to try and push our designs further and to escape the conventions and formalities of previously made products. Below are two examples with a necklace on the left and an mp3 player on the right:
We then had to create a structure that would support a full bottle of water using only paper and masking tape. I misunderstood the brief and made a case for the bottle, which can be seen below, and so the structrue did not support the bottle whatsoever. However, I quite liked the result of this as the design flattened out into a bow like structure. Below are a selection of pictures of my structure using little figures to illustrate the scale and create an architectural feel:
The last part of the day involved using 4 sheets of cardboard and masking tape to create a structure that would hold our own weight. I struggled with this task initially as 3D design is not my strongest area but manage to create a backless chair like structure that actually proved able to hold my weight. I decided to embellish my structure with a sign stating 'made by Steph', a pattern using a love heart stamp and a smiley face; I wanted it to have quite a jovial, lighthearted feel.
