Post your 3D Creativity and win an Apple iPod Touch!

Create and Convince, the two obsessions of Creative Designers.

Yes, creation has always been the key mission and challenge for Designers. Working on future products, trying to anticipate and visualize the future consumer trend is a difficult exercise.

iToy Long+SketchCreation always start with a drawing, by sketching your ideas coming from multiple sources of inspiration; from your living experience, nature or existing products. But there is an additional way creativity can also be a source of instant inspiration.  It’s about sculpting!

Yes sculpting is materializing your creation in three dimensions, but it is also a source of Creative inspiration while you are shaping your object. It is during this mental iterative process that the shape you are forming is also influencing your creativity. The level of interaction you can have and feel with your shape finally inspires your creativity.

The first expression of Creativity for designers starts with a drawing by sketching in 2D their Design intent, and with CATIA we give the ability to transform this 2D design expression into a 3D reality.

Since a few years, a new generation of young Industrial Designers also expresses their creativity in 3D. With new technologies like 3D Subdivision surfaces combined with the level of interactive manipulation and user experience, 3D becomes a real creative tool. Giving the ability to designers to create in 2D but also directly in 3D like a sculptor with Virtual Clay modeling.

    Architecture Design for a signature spa in Miami, fl.

    Concept was to combine different architecture languages into one.Polymorphism. Example from: 1111 by Herzog & De Meuron, Park guel by Gaudi, and Dillier & Scofidio single surface architectural language.

    Started off with program modeling of spaces using space reservations, and then from there created an elevation sketch of the conceptual building, and modeled the building using advanced surfacing. Later rendered using the existing conditions of the project site.

    Hi,

    I have made this Dock iPod concept on Cati V5R16 using GSD workbench.
    I though that contest was about to develop another dock as the video of the iToy was in introduction, so I started to do another one :)

    This big Apple soundstation is based on simple thoughs : why not use the logo company to develop a product ? And the fact that this mother nature gave us so nice object to be inspired, that it was fun to model one.

    Well, you’ll see lots of speakers, the side parts of the product are grids to filter the sound. The leaf on the top can be unplugged and used as remote control…

    I hope you’ll enjoy it…

    See you!

    P.S : Renderings were done in Hypershot… I haven’t got the licence to use the one integrated in Catia ;)
