Re: Web-site feedback would be much appreciated :)

I have made some more amendments and modifications to the site. I was lucky enough to get my work exhibited at the New Designers event held in London in the first week of July.

Re: Which CAD software to learn and a quick Portfolio questi

All that being said, CAD is CAD and if you use it too much, you will turn into a monkey. Sketch with pencil/pen and paper as much as you can. My thoughts exactly....sketching is still loads more fun and should be the primary tool in my opinion. Matt Lombard's surfacing and complex shape modelling b...

Re: Which CAD software to learn and a quick Portfolio questi

Thanks for all the feedback thus far :) It's rely interesting to get a perspective from industry professionals what is expected of us once we walk (or slog) into our first job. As far as posting a photo of yourself, that depends on your personality (and looks?). ha ha ha yes that is very true. Also ...

Which CAD software to learn and a quick Portfolio question?

I was just rely curious what other ID's thought in terms of which CAD software is best to learn/accepted across the board. It has long been emphasised to us by our tutors that the likes of SolidWorks and 3Ds Max should get you into a job. However having recently started to look at possible intern sh...

Re: Working on trains...would you?

Ha ha yes I would say that some of RL designs were quite radical for that time period, a very fine example the picture above :-)

I think I will need to do some further research on American passenger trains vs UK trains.

Thanks for the other feedback as well!

Re: Working on trains...would you?

Yeh that is true...I guess it's also a little bit harder for us designers to try and do any sort of sketching, idea creation on a bumpy ride.

I was just wondering if a dedicated coach for the business traveller would be of any use i.e. having a coach with pods that provide more space and privacy?

Working on trains...would you?

Just looking at some design aspects of working areas on trains and what people think of this and how this could possibly be improved? I feel some obvious one's are free wi-fi, power socket for each seat and big enough table for a laptop. How do people feel about privacy and would they even bother wo...

Very good point raised there with 20 hours a week spent being unproductive. .[/quote] 4 hours a day, five days a week ... 20 hours a week in addition to the "40 " at work; half your salary.

Re: Computer fried, 1 month before graduation...

As a fellow student I can't reiterate how important it is to BACKUP your work. I lost my USB pen last winter (I have a sneaky suspicion it fell out of my bag and into the snow) lost about 2 weeks worth of work. Absolutely gutted.....but lesson learnt!
