How to design an electric scooter? Logic is the point!
The designer's sketch must jump out of the form of the sketch to express the content that should be expressed (such as thinking around aesthetic logic, manufacturing logic, behavior logic, etc.). The most afraid of seeing the sketch is an empty beautiful skin. A little inspiring thinking or illogical at all.
I think a good design sketch should be developed around two main lines of logical relationship at the same time.
1. Two logical relationships
The first thinking logic (why is it designed like this, a series of exploration and thinking around the essence of design), we can understand it as how to think, thinking logic is actually equivalent to our design thinking tool.
The second argumentation logic (the thinking process of the design sketch and the argumentation relationship corresponding to the output result), for our design thinking, how to judge whether the thinking is right or wrong, good or bad? Argument logic is actually a powerful supplement to thinking logic. We can understand that this is a tool to help us make judgments and choices.
2. Case design of electric scooter
Below I will take the design of an electric scooter as a case, using two tools of thinking logic and argumentation logic to demonstrate the entire design sketch deduction process. How do they coordinate and think together to complete a good design deliberation.
First of all, the first logic that should be considered before starting the design sketch. How to design an electric scooter? There must be too much design logic in it. Here I will focus on product modeling design. Other non-design logic is not To elaborate. We can be sure that the next design thinking will focus on the aesthetics of product styling, and the aesthetic logic will be used here.
Some methods and tools about modeling and modeling aesthetic logic have actually been shared before. In order to enable everyone to quickly and efficiently output good design results, a set of effective thinking tools (how to design and think The underlying logic of modeling).
Before designing the shape of an electric scooter, we need to roughly determine the overall posture and proportional relationship. Should it be dignified, round, sporty, etc.? It is equivalent to the first impression and impression that the product gives. At this time, the shape does not need to be very complicated. It only needs to be simply outlined according to the product volume and basic functional division. Here, we need thinking tools for basic aesthetics and posture design rules, and then pass A large number of comparative arguments determine the appropriate ratio and posture.
After a lot of sketch interpretation, a relatively good product shape can be obtained. If there is not yet, the process of drawing the director's interpretation is too little. You can continue with the sketch. The sketch is endless.
In the end, we performed 3D modeling and rendering of the satisfactory shape, and continued to demonstrate the feasibility of the design through 3D. The sketch demonstration and 3D demonstration could go back and forth for many rounds until the final design goal was reached.
The above is the whole process of product modeling design derivation through the two dimensions of thinking logic and argumentation logic, which is suitable for all product designs. I hope everyone has to help.
