Project Introduction :-
M-Novate is looking for a,
[Industrial Designer] or [Creative Product Designer] who is an Individual / Company
to come up with 3D designs of 'iPhone 4 Case' concepts. If chosen, we will submit our initial concepts / direction in .PPT containing existing pictures of products, material used and logo integration. We require a minimum of 4 possible design alternatives / direction. Out of the 4 rough designs directions, 2 will be chosen to be refined.
Our products are minimal, sexy and luxurious to the touch. Your design has to reflect this. We are looking to prototype the 'iPhone 4 Metal Alloy Case' out of some form of Metal Alloy. The process will most likely be 'Metal Injection Molding' or 'Casting' with secondary process of 'Plating' or 'Painting'.
Design constraints in terms of ease of manufacturability is crucial and therefore has to be accounted for, i.e straight pull parts. Use of color to create creative concepts is essential. Think 'Sleek & Sexy' and 'the Maserati' of case's as the overall theme.
Once the I.D. portion is done, you will be engaged in creating the working CAD file for prototype production. This will be discussed, upon successful completion of the I.D. concepts.
Final Product :–
1) I.D. of a luxurious, sleek & sexy 'iPhone 4 Case' manufactured out of Metal Alloy / Aluminum.
Key Deliverables :–
1) iPhone 4 Case - 5 rough concepts / directions and upon selection; 2 Final 3D concept.
