This project was done in collaboration with the head watch designers at Fossil. Students were to be placed in teams of 3 or 4, with at least one jewelry designer, one industrial designer, and one graphic designer. The group went through the entire design process together, from brand & trend research, to sketching, to 3D modeling, and finally to creating prototypes and a process book. The three different majors complemented each other incredibly, resulting in a collection of 5 watches in the 3 product categories of pedestrian, trend-driven, and iconic. These were presented to the company in the final class in a display and unique packaging created by the group.
3D Models of the final watch collection:
These were created in Rhino 3D and rendered in Keyshot.
Prototypes of the final collection:
These prototypes were created using leather and materials manipulated to mimic the materials to be used in production.
