Please keep all discussions regarding the 1HDC here. We like to keep the Submission forum clean and tidy for everyone's viewing pleasure!

THEME:
The Most Ideation Design Sketches in 60 Minutes!

DOORS OPEN:
August 4, 2009
9 PM PST (4PM GMT)


DOORS CLOSE:

August 30, 2009
9 PM PST (4 AM GMT)


BRIEF:
Run to the closest printer or copier, grab a small stack of copier paper, and show us some ideation love. Yup, it's as simple as that--create the most number of ideation sketches in as many angles, forms, and scribbles of a single subject of your choice. If you love shoes, sketch 'em. If you’re feelin' it for cars, we want to see those. If you’re into cellphones, gadgets, gizmos, fashion, or accessories, have at it! We’ve all seen these ideation pages populating your Coroflot portfolios; now's your chance to prepare a stunning array live with the kitchen timer set to 60 minutes!


HOW TO ENTER:
Sketch your best pages onto letter-sized sheets of paper (yes, you can go digital also, just have your board be 8.5” x 11”), scan 'em, and post 'em to the 1HDC submissions forum here: viewtopic.php?f=35&t=19601

JURY:
Winners will be selected by Core77 Admin. Quantity counts here of course, but so does beauty--you'll want to create the sexiest, most compelling set of ideation sketches possible. Community discussion is encouraged to help ensure that the best designs win.


CRITERIA:
Judging will be based on sketching and design excellence, focusing on form variation, sketch quality, and composition.


PRIZE:
1st, 2nd, and 3rd place designs will be featured in the Core77 Newsletter, on the Core77 Blog, and gain bragging rights heading into the Fall of 2009.

Good Luck!

No, this is about as many HIGH QUALITY design sketches you can crank out in one hour. If you can do 10 pages of great sketches scan them all and submit them.

But go for QUALITY over pure quantity. If you did 10 pages but only 4 of them are awesome, only post the 4 awesome ones.

Sketch ONLY ONE SUBJECT....if you choose cars....stick with cars, etc.

rkuchinsky,

I don't mind your life drawings at all. I went to art school and drew my fair share of saggy old man balls. I'd much rather go to your class :D sounds like fun, do they serve champagne?

'tiss true... I'm pretty frugal when it comes to my supplies. I don't get the latest and greatest computer, or tablet, or even markers, because they don't matter much. I'm of the belief that Tiger Woods would have a better golf game than me even if he played with potato on the end of a tree branch, and thusly, what pencil I use doesn't much matter...

7 years ago I bought an inexpensive ($99) Canon scanner, it is USB powered, very slim and after 7 years still works fantastic. This is a great investment, as so far it has amortizes out to $14 a year so far... Get one. This is a necessary tool and you will have it years longer than your computer or printer.

yo,

i found one of those usb canon scanners at a resale shop for $2 a few years ago. It was like new and works to this day. Those canon scanners (LED light, USB powered) are small, easy to carry around and work great. I recommend one too. :wink:
