Do you happen to have examples of your work? I can critique some of it if possible and see how to improve the renderings

The name is going to be just as important, if not even more important than the design innovation. Obviously if the design is GREAT, and the name sucks, the product may not go as far as if the name was just as great.

When someone learns about a product, they will want to know the name; if the name meshes perfectly with the design/innovation.. you're golden. A product name can go viral by itself.

Keep this alive! Second year ID student.

More model-making oriented, not the quickest / smoothest at rendering. Aiming for furniture / toy design (if im talking big dreams, automotive bodykit design).



Just a sample of the /rough/ shit i do (i almost never finish them), scratch-built with styrene and modelling epoxy putty.

I was wondering if any of you could help, I am well into a degree in mechanical engineering however I want to be working as an industrial designer as a career. I understand that industrial designers in the UK all have engineering degrees so I realize this is a good start. Does anyone know any esteemed universities that provide masters programs that accept people from other faculties? In Mech. E. we do some design courses but nothing extremely artistic, i was hoping to gain more fine arts experience before I attempt to get a job working in any technical/automotive industries. If anyone has any advice for me it would be greatly appreciated. cool

Never heard of the majority of ID majors in the UK having ME degrees that is interesting to say the least. I started off similar to you an ME who discovered ID. Its much more than an applied art field, if anything it is the combination of everything in the world to make an idea into a product that works well.  

If you are looking to go into TranDesign I will tell you right now that the sketching will be intense. Trans people are some of the best sketchers in the business. Sketching is one of the most important things for you to learn if you are serious about ID, you have to be able to visually communicate ideas. 
So start sketching watch Scott Robertsons videos, visit the Core77.com forums and read through as many threads as you can.

I could go on in detail about this but it would be a really long read.

I'd personally would enjoy if you go into a bit more detail, or rather, push me in the right direction in terms of good video references.

Ok so the sketch videos I were referring to are apart of the series The Techniques of Scott Robertson, you can find them for download on the internet somewhere if you look.
Also watch Objectified to get a good sense ofwhat the field can be like. The process of design itself can be very complex I have to do some more thinking on it before I try to explain it in detail(need to do it eventually).

But to sum it up:
Sketch out initial ideas (Ideation)
In this phase its best to just let your mind and pen rip, no hard thoughts just pure movement that way you can get a wide array of ideas out quickly.
Refining the ideas comes next, then prototyping those ideas via a machine shop or CAD and a 3D printer. Sometimes just making a prototype can be faster than a 3D print I find and you get a better sense for the form that me. 
After prototyping its moves into the manufacturing which is always a headache and a real client into that mix and it can be even more of a crapshoot if you're not careful.

Just google the fuck out of it and you'll find some dope stuff.

You can find inspiration in literally anything. You just have to critically think of all the possibilities of what you're looking at and what it could eventually become. For example, I'm looking at my TV stand and I don't like how the cable box and Xbox 360 looks exposed. Looking at my wallet I like how there's a hidden fold that comes out to reveal extra slots for my cards. With that in mind I ask myself "how can I combine the two" and get to sketching. From there, what smegmashark is saying is on point.
