The watering can project was a branding exercise where we were challenged to convey an existing brand's design language through a watering can. I chose Porsche because I was interested in the way different curves flow smoothly into one another in their car designs. I enjoyed exploring how Porsche cars, both new and old, have their curved designs punctuated by the occasional sharp edge.
Sketches and prototypes
In order to reach the final form, during the prototyping phase, I had to go back and forth between sketching on paper and making small foam or clay sketch models. Because of going back and forth, I was able to better visualize what I wanted my final form to be and how to improve my sketch models to reach that point.
To create the form, I carved the main shape out of blue foam and wood, and then spackled it. In order to remove imperfections, I sprayed the form with grey primer, so that imperfections would become visible, and then sanded the imperfections down. Finally, I attached the handle and sprayed the entire form with a metallic grey finish.
