2012 Summer Internship Underway

Hello my name is Luca Harrell and I am currently a summer intern at Montie Design.  As the winner of the 2012 Montie Gear student competition, I’ve been asked to develop my contest submission into a product that will be added to the Montie Gear product line.  I’m very excited about this opportunity and am equally excited to share my progress with you.  Through weekly blog posts, I’ll document the process of my product’s development from concept to prototype through pictures, sketches, and 3D models.  In today’s post you can see how I kicked off the project with a project brief, a rough project plan, and research.  Feel free to give feedback or comment on what you see.  Hope you enjoy!
