PORTFOLIO - GOKUL VENKATESH

  1. 1. PORTFOLIO INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER Basic Iterations of hood BULTURE DESIGN THESIS PROJECT (On Going)Sponsored by TAFEProject: Design of futuristic Operator’s work space of TAFE tractor GOKUL VENKATESH 09420502
  2. 2. PORTFOLIO INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER During the initial phases of Planning, system study and user centric analysis, I laid more emphasis on capturing the user adoptability to the existing workspace and the way an user interacts with it. This was done through capaturing real life scenarios in form of videos and photographs, questionaires, interviews, focus group discussions. Bench marking, trend forecasting and ergonomic study was also done during these phases. A good exploraton during these phases laid strong database for further phases of my project.

  3. 3. PORTFOLIO INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER With the inputs from the initial phases, I am going through concept development phase and with one more semester’s time being left in my project, I will be going through Detail Design, Validation and prototype phases. The sketches in this pages showcase a glimpse of few rough exterior concepts done during basic exterior iterations exercise which was done as a warmup exercise before proceeding to the interior space conceptualization. The Interior workspace with which I will be comingup will be a milestone for contemporary workspaces and will be exclusive for Indian user.
