Margate colour wheel project.

About the Margate colour wheel.

Margate colour wheel is a group project that Thomas Ruck and I collaborated on.
The product is a pin wheel that is in the shape of a wind turbine that has been 3D printed . The idea is that you can customize the detachable blades that will be made out of paper, along with a modern twist to the classic pin wheel.  

About the project.

 The project was run by Future Foundry for Turner Contemporary who wanted a product that could be sold in the gallery shop.
The project lasted four weeks  and by the end of it we had to show a proto type of the item. There was  eleven artists including me working on this project so we decided that we would go under the name  'Wantsum works' as a team but we would have our own  individual group names, there was five groups altogether.

 My  part in the project.

My part in the project was to created the CG animated version  of the product , that demonstrated how  you put the item together as well as a 360spin of the item. I created the final look for  Margate colour wheel logo. And the instructions layout (not the info on it).

Thomas's Part in the project.

Thomas's part in the project was to create the actual 3D printed model, with previous experience with the 3D printing company we were using  he knew  what would print and how to reduce cost in the model within the time we had. And the info in the instructions.

How the project ended.

The project started on the 11/3/14 / We present on the 9/4/14/  and we were  all surprised  when we were told that Turner wanted all the products for the  gallery shop.
