Concept to Product

Not scheduled at this time


Instructor: Michael David Sturlin

This workshop takes you on the creative journey from seed idea to finished object. Start with the design process; learn reliable methods to explore and extend concepts into related groups and series with cohesive content. Develop seed ideas with a system of 2D sketches and studies as you expand and evolve designs and features. Explore and elaborate your designs with 3D paper and foil models for proof of concept and engineering. Carry your design forward with a finished metal prototype as a product model. Use the product model to calculate cost and resources to assemble a group of related work, and to develop display and merchandising concepts for product presentation. 

Prerequisite: Fabrication 2 or experience.
