Wednesday, August 31, 2011
After a bit of a hiatus from the 1 Hour Design Challenge, we have decided to bring it back in a manner that many (in the Northern Hemisphere) could relate to about now. With the heat of summer bearing down on us, who doesn’t like a good water gun fight? Even better than that, who doesn’t love a good Super Soaker fight?
So, we’re lightening things up around here for the month of August and asking all our Core77 peeps to put pen to paper and design us the coolest Super Soaker known to Man.
Jon Winebrenner, OneOak Design, Inc & Creator of the 1HDC
Designs will be judged purely on subjective opinion of the judge. Minimum entry will be 1 8.5” x 11” page of thumbnail sketches, and 1 8.5” x 11” rendering of the final design. This 1HDC is more about your rapid visualization skills in conjunction with a fun topic. Good composition, line weight, and rapid concept development will weigh heavily in the final design…the judge will also consider bribes.
HOW TO ENTER:
Participants must execute their design in only 1 hour, based on an honor system. To enter, upload your entries to the designated competition forum.
To discuss the challenge and the entries, visit the 1HDC discussion forum.
All of the above will be published in the Core77 Newsletter and get blog coverage on the Core77 main page.
I go away for a couple of weeks and suddenly there are some awesome submissions into this Month’s 1HDC!
I am glad to see that getting back to the basics has sparked some interest after a far too long hiatus.
There was a question in the forum regarding when the doors will close. Reality being what it is, I will be closing the doors on this when I arrive in the office on September 1st. If I happen to remember to do it before I go to bed on Wednesday…the doors will close somewhere around 9 or 10 PM PST…I am located in Vancouver, BC.
I just joined the forum and thought it would be fun to try the challenge even though I’m way to late… Its good practice and I want to be better at sketching… So here is my 1 your concept… Not enough time to draw everything I thought I should but it was fun!
