Welcome to the third leg of the Core77 Design-Athlon, where designers flex and get respects. We've already seen some excellent Sketching and Prototyping go down so now turn our attention to the final skill in our series: Rendering.
Our first #c77rendering challenge is "Air Conditioner":
An apartment during hot summer months can be one of two things: sauna or salvation. The difference is air conditioning. This challenge is to consider the usability and aesthetics of Air Conditioning in an apartment environment, and then produce a kick-#!@ rendering of your design. Designers love constraints so *if you need or want them* here are some considerations you could address: ease of window installation by end users, seasonal use and removal for storage, and the bland, cheap, run-of-the-mill looks of a conventional AC. In the end though, this is a rendering skill challenge so presentation is paramount.
For this final leg of our competition we have industrial designer Scott Henderson to help us pick winners! Your Air Conditioner challenge is open for two weeks, so get to designing/rendering!
