The Epic Crit of the Chevy Volt

Recently Dustin, Arvind and I had the chance to sit down and discuss the production version of the Chevy Volt.  The conversation became one that we decided to document and place on the Fetish site.  It was an epic look at the car that is set to (hopefully) save the US automotive market.  In fact, it’s spawned a new series that we’ll be doing:  3-person critiques of vehicle designs.

Web Design Stuff

I’ll be really getting into designing this blog tonight at the coffee shop.  I’m anxiously trying to figure out how to best represent different aspects of my design work, from web & graphic design to product and automotive.

Until then, check out some of the web design work I’ve done in the past, many of which included template manipulation and logos:

Brings Back Memories

I happened upon a link online to an article about an old project I was a part of in college over at CCS.  It was a show car for BMW, done for my 1999 Color & Trim class.  Based on the Z3, the theme of the vehicle was techno-fantasy and revolved around experiencing the nightlife and high fashion for someone in their early twenties.

I remember working on several parts of the design: the vehicle name (Ohm) and logo design, the seating design (which helped me get my internship at a seating supplier the same month as the debut of the vehicle at NAIAS in January of 2000), and other various parts.  Of course the vehicle was a team project.  I won’t take credit for it all by myself: all decisions were definitely made as a team, and my contribution was small compared to what the rest of the team created together.  However, there were parts of the concept that I focused on that remained pure to their intent, something that is rare even today in the automotive design world.

I thoroughly thank the rest of the team for their work with me.  To this day I’ll never manage to comprehend the immense work that went into the color choices, paint, materials, and more that the rest of the team worked to create and merge to achieve the theme we all were striving for.  I was definitely in their shadow, hunkering over my small contribution.  It was a fantastic experience to go through.

Here’s the link to the article, with a short excerpt:

Future Designers Present – Ohm – The Ultimate Concept Car For the 21st Century

…Each year student designers from the
Center for Creative Studies-College of Art and Design (CCS) dazzle onlookers
at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) with their fresh and
innovative concept show vehicle. This year, CCS is proud to present — the
Ohm — a BMW Z3 roadster transformed into a jazzy and electric retreat for the
nightlife driver enthusiast…

I Think I’m Actually…

…going to use this blog.

I’ve contemplated starting a personal blog, with all of my latest work as an elaborate, confusing centerpiece. And, since I had started this one to cash-in on some digg hits for the original Madden post, I think I will just turn around and use this one as that personal page.

I’m much more used to modifying WordPress to my own liking, so having it hosted on WordPress.com will be a bit of a chore early on as I learn how to modify their hosted system.

In other words, bear (bare?) with me while I slowly modify this blog to remove the initial “templatey” feel of it and add in content.

Thanks,

Dali

MADDEN CURSE STRIKES AGAIN!

This may be the earliest the Madden curse has struck… Brett Favre is a Jet, just a scant week before the game ships.  This is, however, the most bizarre of the Madden Curse occurrences.  A Hall of Fame player comes out of retirement and switches teams.  Will EA change the cover at the last second?  Time to get the collector’s items before they’re gone!
