HTC One, Photography

"The beauty lies not with the power of the camera, but within the abstract mind of the photographer"

So I recently got my hands on an HTC One. Within a week's use, it has proved to be nothing short of beautiful. I'll do a review of the phone soon, but couldn't resist sharing the beauty of HTC One's "Ultrapixel" camera.

3D Printing

3/9/12 Friday night in the lab. First night of serious work... if printing ninja stars can be considered serious! What better to print anyways? 

Printed some replacement legs for a Dell keyboard. Just found out today that the mm thickness of the extrusion can be adjusted further. This was set to 3mm and for smaller sized projects, the results are messy.

Favorite piece so far. This was a "low resolution vase" downloaded off
The print job was near perfect, and the geometry is beautiful. 

3/9/12 Friday night's work summed up. Two shurikens, 2 keyboard legs, vase.

3/11/12 Saturday night, back in the lab. Found interesting "stretchy" bracelet designs on 

After multiple prints I successfully printed one that fit. 

If anything I'm astonished by the resulting strength and detail. Printed at the thinnest setting, the plastic did end up relatively flexible. The MakerBot did a terrific job of stacking each layer with great precision. Still feel tense getting them on and off. 

The nautilus earrings are the most detailed and fine objects I've tested so far. These proved to a bit of a challenge for the MakerBot. The finer the detail, the more "webby" and messy it seems to be. Overall I was satisfied, took a bit of cleanup nonetheless and still needs more. 

Summary of tonight's work. Five bracelets printed in both silver and black. Two nautilus earrings.

More Sketchbook Pro Practice, Backpack Design Exploration

Bikers, traceurs, runners, people on the go. We always have something to lug around with us. For me it's simply my cell phone, wallet, some cash, and maybe my ipod. We need more lightweight, bulk free backpacks that meet our needs. Time to explore.

Some shape exploration in Sketchbook Pro

A quick shape test using the Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch. Satisfying results, getting used to the tablet.

Sketches, new and old

If these posts are to track my progress, it would only make sense to start with some old ones. 
This headphone concept was drawn out in my Design I class at Salisbury University.

Some more headphone concept exploration, transparency tests. 7/14/11


And today's sketch. Some cubic variation. 7/21/11. Wow, July's almost over...

Well, that's all for today. Note to self, Wacom bamboo works awesome. Only after figuring out that two monitors decrease all control... I was drawing like a 5 year old. When the tablet was linked to only one screen I had so much more surface area and control.

Baby Steps

I decided I'll start tracking my progression as I teach myself to sketch. All thanks to for their beautifully shared knowledge. 

Current setup. HP G72, second monitor, AKAI Keyboard for fun. Can't forget the new addition to my family, the Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch. 

It wasn't what I expected... or at least it might take some getting used to. Lovely design, average functionality. 60$ price tag- debatable. I'll see if I grow into it. Still, nothing beats old pen and paper. 

Nothing beautiful, but it's a start. is a great place to learn from, especially if you're like me without a classroom environment. First sketch enhanced in photoshop, I'm satisfied. 
Quick rendering practice. First time using no sketch, no underlay, just from scratch. All done in Photoshop CS5. 

I'm hoping this blog will help me keep track of my work and progression. If anyone out there took the time to browse through, hope you enjoyed! I hope this might even inspire other Industrial Design enthusiasts to start learning, whether you have a teacher or not.

The beginning

Finally... I'll start to make use of my blog. I'll make sure to keep the reading short, and focus on visuals! Too bad we don't read as much these days...

To begin with:
I am a Industrial Design student. I currently have a tiny footprint, though I have huge goals set ahead of me.
I probably won't post much of my work here... not yet at least, but if you like what you've seen elsewhere so far, do let me know!
