Working for the Aerospace department of Imperial College London I created a range of concept products and renders that showed how various user journeys could be improved.
The final deliverables were a range of images highlighting how technological advancements - made in structural power composites - could impact daily life. The material being showcased has the ability to improve slenderisation by negating the need for a battery, this is visualised in the above image titled 'Phones as thin as credit cards'.
The second image is a concept I designed and rendered for a future aeroplane; wherein the electrical energy - stored in the structure of the plane - is used for the propulsion. By doing this it means that more efficient wing designs can be used such as the 'box wing'. It should be noted that the final iteration was greatly helped by the input of the Imperial Aerodynamicists and Aerospace Engineers.
The key focus of these images was to:
Create a series of concepts that were technologically viable
Incorporate the Imperial College branding (as other artwork has been reused without permission in the past)
Highlight key features of the material for each use case (such as slenderisation)
The last image is a render of a concept car using the structural power composite. The Imperial College Logo has been added to the background of the Image on the news ticker on the Thomson Reuters building at Canary Wharf and also added to the coffee cup inside the vehicle. The goal of this image was to show increased cabin space, reduced panel thickness and energy being stored the vehicle structure.
(All images are shown in a low-res version, the final images were rendered 'in-house' at 8k in Cinema 4D and Redshift)
