Not only present sketches? For example: Present 50 sketches of a concept, and accompanied by the selection of three of the best designs, and work them in Photoshop. And at the end, testing color and make design modifications, including various tests? It works in the shoe design industry?
Well that was my idea of how to make representations of shoes, after the sketches, without the need of 3D and faster. I suppose I have no idea.
The sketches are the first and the most important, but 50 sketches, maybe only 5 are viable and beautiful, and of those 5 you have to choose one, it's worth the design chosen work in Photoshop, make changes?
I like to spice up the final designs, presenting environments, This helps in something in the shoe design industry? Sorry my english is bad.
you are pretty close in how your understanding of the process, but to partially agree with Robin you need to show that whole process
. so show a page or 2 of research, defining the consumer,design brief, competitive set, etc then show a couple pages of sketches with callouts or images as to what is driving your design direction, then maybe a page or 2 talking about materials or construction/function, then after all that has been clearly communicated end the presentation with one or 2 of the renderings you have shown above. that would be a basic outline to follow, it can be tweaked but all those things need to be represented to show your skills to a company as a designer, not just renderings.
So the point is that you recommend me is also I need to publish the preliminary sketches to the completion of the final design. Obviously without a sketch, you can´t advance to the realization of "fine sketches." Also an investigation, justification, materials manufacturing, consumer, and other characteristics. Some things I can not do. I can explain in my designs (Visual and written) in an environment, a justification and sometimes I like to add advertising, think of a product already wrapped, packaged, add slogan, close and complete concepts. But I do not know the material and technical specifications, I design instinctively, thinking of a concept and the consumer to whom it is intended. For example, Under Armour recommended me, do minimalist designs for basketball, because it's the kind of line that they produce, which is why I adapted to the requirements, outlined and fluid designs that are not over-saturated characteristics.
Well, assuming that I now present sketches, select a final design, prepare it for advertising, do different color proofing, transfer it to Photoshop, presented research, specifications and consumer research. What is the next step?
This design was submitted for Under Armour, briefly explained the concept, with pictures and words.
In this poster, the player is in a position to attack, but holding the racket like a sword, or spear, ready to attack prey.
Orion is a design linked to Orion "The Hunter", in Greek mythology. It is inspired by the wristbands and headbands, used in tennis. A band diagonally traverses the shoe sole in the heel area. That element is the main feature of the concept. I thought about linking the wristbands and headbands as a distinct element of the hunter, to close the whole concept.
Orion is for instinctive athletes, for players who select their moves, for explosive athletes, athletes who are not improvised. Orion is for hunters.
