The first segment is the homework for the Learn Squared course, instructed by Kiril Chepizhko. Our brief was to design a complex system and to assemble several detailed parts into one cohesive object.
After deviating from my initial idea, the concept I decided to go with was to build a Red Digital Cinema. A superb quality digital camera, built on a modular structure. Detailed components are designed alongside this thing. Expanding it from its original form into something more powerful and versatile.
Being modular systems their external structures are virtually identical, however, as a metal head, I just couldn't help myself not choose the DSMC2 Monstro 8K VV. Just that title alone tempts me.
During this project I've visited Red's website quite often for references. As a web designer it was a pain to see such a stock standard website for a company with such a clear distinct design language in their products. The redesign section is quite large in itself and can be found here on the B Side.
With all the time I’ve spent, looking back I would rather have attempted various projects with smaller goals. Working on a big project such as this dug the hole deeper and deeper. The longer I worked on it, the unhappier I became about what I’ve done. Hoping that fixing one piece might put it all in perspective, only to repeat the frustration. All the long hours made me resent it. Sending my procrastination into hyper-drive and not wanting to continue further.
Even though I didn't use these for my final piece there’s some elements in them worth showing and they can still be used as promotional pieces.
