Design or Die

Once again, this blog will go on another short hiatus till the 5th of May 2009. And by then, all of the deliverables needed for me to graduate would have been submitted. Looking back at my work for my thesis, I think I've done fairly well in terms of having a consistent process. Too bad I can't say the same for my design though. I do hope that it gets better over time. And as the picture posted above says "Design or Die", this is the most apt expression at this point of time.

3rd Crit

I'm not sure if I can keep this up for long. The length of this whole thesis project has taken a toll on me and I think i have fully flexed the creative boundaries of the design in it's current stage. I could already foresee the next round of improvements done but this next step is going to be a giant leap in it's evolution. Anyway. 3 weeks have passed and I'm trying as hard as I can to keep this blog going. 28 more days and it will be almost over for me. In the meantime, I'm in the middle of preparing my panels for the next presentation. I have also managed to streamline my cadding workflow to the extent that I can churn out these renderings within a short time :

Mocked Up

I can't wait. Really. For all of these to be over. Well at least for while. My countdown timer says that I only have less than 6 weeks left before everything ends. I'm on an auto work mode where most of work processes have been streamlined to fully maximize the use of time. It has been tests after test where I am refining the design. I'll be having my second last crit tomorrow and even as I am typing right now, My laptop is still in the midst of rendering one of the product images. In case you have been wondering what I've been up to the past 2 weeks, here's a summary of it in pictures.
