For every designer, it is a good idea to get in to a design competition. Red Dot Concept Design held every year for 54 years and it is one of the most prestigious design award around the world.
One of the great benefit about Red Dot is “the designer is informed about 3 months ahead of the public when the design won the award. This allows enough time for the designer to file for protection. If a design does not win the award, it is kept secret, as the adjudication is a strictly confidential and private event.”
Also the cost is pretty good for an individual designer which is only 50 Euros as an early bird and it gets as high as 100 for late fees, compare to IDSA which is $350 to get in and extra $150 to get judges after being finalist!

I’m not really use to organic modeling, coming from Industrial Design background, I’m a SolidWorks person, half designer, half engineer or half form,half function. Also, always try to use limitation in my design, so it is almost closer to production model.
This is the first time I’m trying to break the rules, create non symmetry object, learning low poly modeling and learning Cinema 4D. Low poly modeling or box modeling is interesting, it is completely different way of thinking. What I like about different types of 3D modeling is the challenge of think differently. So, I’ve sketched several little frog, illustrate one in photoshop and iltrying to make a low poly model of it. As soon as I’m done, I’ll have a complete post about it.
