I have a few ideas for posts and topics of discussion and I’d like to know what would be most valuable to you. Most of my input will focused on practical applications in product design and development but I’m open to other ideas.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
Tolerance analysis and datum selection
Design and evaluation of assembly constraints
Designing thermal systems
CAD modeling techniques
Please post a comment with anything else you think might start an interesting discussion.
Art & Copy is all about advertising. Objectified, as I’ve previouslywritten, is all about product design. Hustwit and Pray find some interesting common ground in discussing what they each learned during the making of their films.
The “Objectified” movie I wrote about earlier this month is officially scheduled to debut at the SXSW Film Fest in March with preview screenings in San Francisco, Chicago, New York, and London which will be announced later.
Gary Hustwit, director of the documentary Helvetica is at it again. This time he looks at the oft hidden world of industrial design in a film called Objectified wherein he talks to the best industrial designers on the planet about what goes into creating a great product. The only information I could find on release date is “Spring 2009.”
