DEVELOP AND PLAN :- BRAINSTORMING DIFFERENT IDEAS THROUGH SKETCHING DIFFERENT DIFFERENT DESIGNS:-
Below are the different design that inspired me a lot , I decided to sketch so that I can get an overall idea of the refinements that are to be made during the making of eyeglasses , for example size of the lens, size of both the arms , shape of the frame
These were some designs that I could easily relate to my sister’s preferences of something not very usual but at the same time something artsy and funky..
ISOMETRIC AND PERSPECTIVE DESIGN PRACTICE
SIDE , FRONT AND BACK VIEW SKETCHING
CREATE AND IMPROVE :- Practicing , Prototyping and Refining
since I wasn’t familiar with working on an illustrator , I practiced on a Cadbury logo so that I can easily work on designing my prototype.
since it was my first time doing this , at first it was really frustrating specially during making he curves but somehow I managed
But the good part was that I got to know different features of an illustrator which was an entirely new experience
PRACTICING VECTOR POINTS
Practicing vector points made me more confident and comfortable with working on AI, so I chose to move on creating my prototype through AI so that I can laser cut it later..
This was the first prototype design that I made , as evident from the picture below it needed a lot of refinement before undergoing laser cutting.
THEN I DECIDED TO LAZER CUT MY PROTOTYPE –
THESE CAME OUT PRETTY COOL ..
SHARE AND REFLECT
My overall process of making these glasses in a nutshell
- started with sketching rough thumbnails for brainstorming ideas
- choosing a prototype design
- practiced vector and perspective drawing (something new to learn)
- learned working on AI
- practicing , prototyping and refining the design on AI
- practicing vector points in order to improve myself and get familiar with it
- finally drafting a prototype on AI
- getting it laser cut
My final prototype came out pretty well, these are comfy , cool and stylistic too. But my aim was making them a bit funky and look more artsy so next time I will try making it a bit colorful .
But my final design fits the user’s choice and my user liked them a lot ..
