Render Demo sponsors sneaker design contest
on Thursday,September 24,2009 01:09
Render Demo Design Studio is an organization dedicated to providing sketching tutorials and other industrial design-related education materials to students. In an effort to encourage students to practice their design skills, it is sponsoring a contest to create designs for sneakers.
The challenge will be to design a shoe intended for a specific professional basketball player. Aspects of that player''s style on and off the court should be considered, including the player''s position, skill set and body type.
Contestants must sketch their designs for the shoe from two angles, the underside and the side view, providing enough detail to give a clear sense of what a finished version of the shoe would look like.
The contest stresses creativity in design, but maintains that creative choices should have a well thought-out line of reasoning. A visually compelling appearance is not enough to justify the inclusion of any elements; they must be functionally called for to be included.
To enter the contest, students must submit their original designs to Render Demo by October 30. The winner''s design will be featured in a future issue of SLAM Magazine and receive a portfolio review from the founder of Render Demo, Mark Kokavec.
Challenges like these may be a great way to keep design skills sharp, but to develop them in the first place, those interested may want to consider an education in industrial design.
