Project Description

Create an industrial sketch of your product idea to share in the class gallery and submit to Quirky

ASSIGNMENT

Sketch your idea using the industrial design principles detailed in the class lessons. Make sure your sketch clearly demonstrates the purpose of your product and how to use it. Share your sketches in the class gallery to illustrate your process, and exchange feedback with other students. Once you’ve finalized your sketches, you can upload your idea to Quirky.com for a chance to have your idea turned into a real product!

DELIVERABLE

Share your industrial sketch in the project gallery. A finished project includes:

  1. One sketch with at least 3 different views of the product, including a hero image
  2. Color and inked lines
  3. One process sketch

RESOURCES

Materials needed for the class:

  • Paper
  • Black pen (no pencils!)
  • Black marker
  • Straight-edge/ruler
  • Color marker/highlighter
  • Reference material (objects, photos, print-outs to look at)
