Default Design Battle: Season 2: Session 4



Its time for another exciting Design Battle! In this session we have NelsonDesign vs MartinEDesign going at it in Round 1,
then there's ElementW vs hakkinen in Round 2.

Lets get the ball rolling on Round 1.

ROUND 1: NelsonDesign vs MartinEDesign

in

The Element of Surprise

Honda recently announced that their funky little fun-box, The Element is fading into oblivion after the 2011 model year. There are a lot of great ideas packed into the Element, however something about the execution just didn't click with the general populace. Both Kia and Nissan have proven that polarizing design, style and that extra little attention to detail can equal runaway success with models like the Soul and Juke.

Designers can you apply a similar philosophy and apply some much needed design, style and panache to the staid Element and save it from extinction.

Good Luck Designers, please PM me your entries by Dec 12.

LET THE BATTLE BEGIN!!

MartinEDesign gets my vote. It resembles the Nissan Juke, but is nicer to look at. I also like the 3-D effect shading.

NelsonDesign, I particularly like the rear of your design, but Martin's edged out in the coolness.

This was definitely a tough decision to make, and although Martin's design is full of character Nelson gets my vote, for his sharp modern fresh design.

Tough one, merge the two designs and you have a great product,
Martin, nice and lively design... love the profile.
Nelson, really smart drawing, liking the DLO and how complete the design is. Though Martins is definitely funkier (esp when scaled to production proportions).
Real hard.....

Nelson gets the vote (just)

Default Round 2

Congratulations! Nelson on winning Round 1. And now on to Round 2



ROUND 2: ElementW vs hakkinen

in

smart, ForSure!

The smart brand launched their first vehicle more than a decade ago with forward thinking ideas and introducing the world to a new generation of the micromobile. Years later the brand hasn't evolved much and is rather late to the "hybrid/electric" party. The microcar segment is pretty hot right now and competitors are offering similarly sized lifestyle vehicles with better styling, ample features and a wide variety of powertrains.

Designers, are you up to the challenge to make smart relevant again?

Good Luck Designers, please PM me your entries by Dec 18.

LET THE BATTLE BEGIN!!
