Welcome to the second leg of the Core77 Design-Athlon, where designers flex their design-y muscles! Play along by taking the following brief and mocking up your ideas. The emphasis here is on exploration and problem-solving – translating concepts into physical form, ideally at a 1:1 scale where all the context of real-world use can inform the process.
Our first #c77prototyping challenge is "A Lunch Box for Adults" here is the Brief:
Budget. Diet. Schedule. An adult lunch is defined by restrictions – either embrace or escape these realities of a modern work lunch through physical ideation and iteration. Maquette, prototype, sketch-model, or buck – we are looking for quick form & use exploration of a lunch box. Choose a scenario and ideate quickly, work through it with your hands and eyes, build quickly, find a rhythm and let the process guide you to a resolution. It is not about the destination; this is the journey at the heart of design - take a pic to document your path and post it!
For our prototyping leg of the competition we have special guest-star judge Julie Arrivé of Map to help us pick winners!
Prototyping is how a concept meets the real world and with the Design-Athlon it serves as a bridge between the first leg, sketching, and the final and upcoming leg, rendering. We'd like to slow the pace down here – each challenge is (approximately) 2 weeks long.
