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!
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.
Judging will be based on sketching and design excellence, focusing on form variation, sketch quality, and composition.
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.
HA! I did this page just today and uploaded it to my 'flot page minutes before coming here and seeing the the 1HDC. Took around an hour but I was not timing myself so I can’t be sure, your call i guess. I’ll do another one later just to be safe
not exactly ideation sketches, but lifedrawing. I’ve been attending a “racy” lifedrawing session lately (billed as “not your gradmother’s lifedrawing!”), and this is the result of an hour at the last session.
the total was 1 hour. top L to right, the individual sketches took 25, 6, 15, 8. Plus if you like you can count 6 minutes for the compilation in PS (nothing more than arranging them on a page and tweaking levels).
Hope this isn’t too “adult” for anyone out there. If so, just lemme know and I can take it down no prob.
I’ve been thinking about the Deka Research/GM collaboration for awhile on their P.U.M.A. concept. I think this thing could be cool, so I decided to spend my hour sketching up some options. First image is what they have now.
I spent 30 minutes sketching thumbnails, then sketched up 2 of them a bit a bigger with the remaining 30. I think I will render up the right concept on page 2 tomorrow.
