Studying Transportation Design at the University of Northumbria and whilst researching for a project came across the forum, thought i might as well get some work out there for people to view.<p><A HREF="http://www.openfolio.com/users/ritchiemalcolm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.openfolio.com/users/ritchiemalcolm</A><p>Thats the url if anyone wants to give it a look, feedback is welcome, as long as its reasoned.

Some of these projects are excellent! I'm sure impressed. There are however a few mistakes: That interiiour project is slightly out of perspective, as it goes in too close to the passenger seat on the far side. The Fiat SUV is pretty cool; the rear wheel seems to be turning too, but other than that it looks amazing. <p>Your skills are excellent. BTW, could you tell me a little more about the career you're studying? I'm off to Australia in a few days and I'l study Industrial Design there in 2006. I would very much like to know if the career is oriented to manual sketching, or rather it's more computer work, or 50/50. Anything that you could tell me about it would be appreciated. thanks a lot and Congrats again on your projects. Once again, despite minor mistakes, they're fantastic <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Oh and welcome to the forums, enjoy!<p>- Superfresa -

The course generally is more oreintated toward manual skills, as there will always be a need for basic draughting in a design context, however we do get a couple of hours a week regarding Photoshop usage, Ashlar Vellum and Alias Wavefront programs, as well as being required to photoshop a lot of presentation boards and the like, just to give them a more finished look.<p>The Pics on my site arent too good, and the format of the actual site kind of takes away from the finished works, but that should get sorted next semester.<p>In the next 3 months im hopefully going to be away in Italy visiting Fiat Centro Stile, as the SUV based project that we ran was commended by a member of the Fiat design team, our University has very close links with them as my lecturer, Matteo Conti, is a former Alfa and Fiat Commercial vehicle designer.<p>The next project we do is actually a collaboration between Fiat and ourselves, so ill keep you posted on the outcomes, still got a month and a half of holidays to go though. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/aliensmiley.gif" BORDER="0">

Cool, thanks for the info. Hopefully the career in Australia is pretty much the same (and over all, hope they've got contacts with car manufacturers too!)
