I am working on a compiling a DVD of sketches similar in nature to the 5 Minutes Sketch series that Yo has done for Core77 recently. I have 4 designers on board and I need 1 or 2 more to get involved.
If you’re willing and able to video tape your design process and have the availability to get me video on or before Valentines Day…send me a message. I would like to see a few examples of your work to make sure your abilities match those who are already involved (you know some of them if you troll the Core77 boards).
I will fill you in on the details offline.
If you haven’t seen the 5 minute sketch series, here it is.
I tried to get Blaster involved, but his schedule didn’t allow it to happen.
if I can get this off the ground, I will be doing a more formal open call for entries.
Optimistic, I will check out your video and get in touch with you privately. I am waiting for two more submissions that should be showing up at the end of this week. If they are what I am hoping/needing I will be all full up as that will make 5 designers.
Well, we’re getting close to finishing off this project and it is called “the.brief.dvd”. We’ve gotten as far as creating a teaser video that I will link to below. The project involves several of your collegues from here on the Core77 boards.
Four professional Industrial Designers were given the same Design Brief asking them to design a single cup coffee maker. All four Designers were videotaped as they worked, showing how they come up with their ideas and begin to realize them as a final product.
the.brief.dvd is not your typical â€œhow-toâ€ DVD. All four Designerâ€™s work has been sped up and then put to cool unique music by the band â€œLips and Ribsâ€. the.brief.dvd isnâ€™t trying to â€œsit down and show you how to designâ€. the.brief.dvd has been created to teach, inspire, and provide a unique way of understanding how professional Designers work.
the.brief.dvd is a glimpse into the mind of four Designers and an observation of the skill required to visualize a product. Have a look at our teaser to see what the.brief.dvd will be showing you:
I have received the what should be the final cut in the mail today! If you’re interested in seeing more of what some of your collegues have done, I have a 15 minute trailer that shows you what the.brief.dvd is all about.
If you go to www.thebriefdvd.com and sign up for the newsletter you will receive a link for the 15 minute trailer.
