The client, a short design course provider, wished to create a fun and bright award to be presented to graduates of the Future Academy London programme. The award needed to look impressive and stand out, with a variety of textures, as well as being a pleasure to hold and display.
To create the award as a 3D model, we interpreted and converted the client’s initial sketches and photographs of a design cube. We intricately added different textures by hand to 4 sides of the cube. We also developed a method to add the letters of each participant and name of the programme onto the design cube. We prototyped different sizes and design versions, going through a fitting and testing process with the client, until the final design was approved. We 3D-printed the digital model in a sustainable biodegradable material (PLA) in the RAL colour traffic yellow.
The design cube awards were gratefully received by participants of the Future Academy London at their awards ceremony. We created a timeless and textural one-off award that can be held and proudly displayed by recipients.
We are an award-winning 3D Design, 3D Printing and Finishing studio founded in 2016 and based at the Design District in North Greenwich.
