Focussing on the process of design, I wanted to enhance the way I work at the beginning of the project. I have noticed many people using apps to improve their day to day living, apps that help you choose the best restaurant to apps that monitor your sleep patterns. Can an app be used to aid design?
Using an app called Trimensional and the camera of my iPhone, I scanned in printed images instead of objects and refined the 3d data to make the proportion of the vehicle. Once this process was complete, I designed the rest of the car around the core volume.
I did not set out with a vehicle typology in mind, proving to myself that not knowing where you are going can yield great results. The process could be applied to any aspect of design, it is up to the designer to choose how far to take it.
