Bycicle helmet Illustration by Luciano Bove ACCD

Dear friends,

yesterday I went to check all my old sketches and art works from school times untill today and I decided starting today to post about some of my Art Center College of Design art works and also about other sketches and illustrations like when I was in Fiat and teaching at design schools.

Here the first one.
It is about a bycicle helmet illustration done with mixed media, I remember the assignement was about choosing a bycicle company or brand (Peugeot in my case) and make a benchmark about its products and design philosophy. Then design a bycicle helmet for the choosen brand and make a final rendering or illustration of it.

My Peugeot bycicle helmet had a very aero and simple elegant shape, a nice red Ferrari glossy color and to make the illustration I decided to:

-use a cold medium gray Canson paper
-Chartpak markers
-chalk with no use of spray fixative to make sure the cream light color would be saturated and look shiny, application of chalck straight on paper and with my fingers to saturate color.
-white gauche for final highlights
-color pencils for some details

It was 1988!

With the economic crisis there is a new trend in Design: the essential or low design. Get the most with little, provoke emotions with extreme simplicity and low cost design.

The Too Late glowing watches are a good example. Made of sylicon, waterproof, 5 colors, ultralight and a trendy attractive design. I just bought one a week ago and since then it is always with me.

Zero Mouse concept by Oliver Rosito

Surfing around the net I found this intersting concept of Mouse named “Zero Concept” designed by Oliver Rosito from Istituto Europeo di Design Madrid.
It is clear the transportation design influence in his approach, it is very attractive and well done the only doubt I have is about the ergonomics because of the empity space on the sides…usually that is the point where we put our thingers to hold securely the mouse!
