A description of my work on the project, is described below from the article
The People Behind the Liberty
It has been a 10-year development journey for Brian Boserup, who has had assistance from Lars Roug (3D-Illustrater) to visualize the concept. Naval architects, universities, and a number of seafarers and other stakeholders have contributed to mature the original ideas.
Blue Technology is now advised by a board representing major players across the shipping industry, including Henrick O. Madsen, the former president and CEO of DNV-GL, Lars Robert Pedersen, the Deputy Secretary General of BIMCO, Niels Bjørn Mortensen, a former director from Maersk, Sofia Fürstenberg, the Business Development Manager for Nor-Shipping, Søren Vinther Hansen, the COO of Vessel Performance Solutions, and Hans Otto Kristensen, a leading naval architect and environmental consultant for the shipping industry.

More about my participation in the competition

The article was written in Danish, but I have translated the article to English.
Suitcase can tell its own weight.
What about a suitcase that can tell its own weight, in order to avoid paying sour money for expensive overweight at the airport. Or what about a wall that exists in transitional patterns, so different patterns imperceptibly can melt together.
Lars Roug and Lene Toni Kjeld have both made very tangible examples of innovation. While Lars is working to get his invention into production, Lene’s already out in stores.
- You can get coaching, you are better able to develop your ideas. And then you get your self a network, "says Lars Roug.
- It is also good to have a community and a place to be home. It is important to have a network, Lene noted.
- It is important to have a strong network and someone who can give a second opinion on your ideas, says Torben.
The former Danish Minister of Economic and Business Affairs.
The former Danish Minister of Economic and Business Affairs Mr. Bendt Bendtsen was the opening speaker at the opening of House of innovation, and also quoted in the article with: "It is a place which can be facilitator for entrepreneurs."

|Happy New Year 2011.|
Newsletter sent January the 20th 2011
With the advent of a new year, it is traditionally time to reflect on the year that has past. Before I do so, let me first and foremost wish friends, colleagues, client and business associates the very best for the New Year.
Up to the launching of Nordship Yachts new yacht the 360 DS at the Düsseldorf yacht show in late January, there were a number of articles on various web sites, which showed the 3D illustrations I had 3D modelled. I was especially pleased to read a Norwegian article dated late 2009 stating that two Norwegians had bought the new yacht based on my illustrations.
I was also pleased to see that my 3D illustrations I had 3D modelled were exhibited at the Nordship Yachts stand at Dusseldorf yacht show.
The Nordship 360 DS was well received by the press both before and after the test sailings. Most excitingly, the model is nominated for European Yacht of the Year 2011. It would be exciting and very deservingly for Nordship to run away with the title and I wish Nordship all the best of luck. The winner will be unveiled at the Düsseldorf yacht show - January the 22nd - 30th 2011.
Talking about Nordship - a fellow student from Coventry University e-mailed me mid 2010, to tell me that his chief designer had presented some 3D renderings/illustrations of boats to him, which he liked. He further believed that his employees should take inspiration from these renderings. Incidentally one of these illustrations was my 3D illustration of the Nordship 360 DS. I was pleased and proud that a former fellow student had such high regards for my work.
In April, I was offered what seems to be a major project. Regrettably the client never paid for my services with this experience in mind I have now revisited my standard contract to avoid future similar situations, wasting several months of work in the process.
During the climate summit in Copenhagen (Cop15) in December 2009 I visited an international exhibition called the Bright Green Exhibition. A lot of international companies were present. I started networking with an American company – a process that has continued during 2010. It is an interesting company with good design ideas. They may wish to delegate part of a project to me – hopefully soon.
In August I was on a five-day intensive sketching course, held by car designer David Hilton in Cologne, Germany. The first two days were quick sketch drawing methods. The last three days of the course were spent developing one of the ideas we had sketched the first two days and then either build up the idea as a clay model or a 3D Alias model. I designed a single person jet seaplane. The product is a noisy product a little bid like jet skis. Most people hate them, but the user loves it.
Over the last two years several interesting job applicants, potential business partners or students who would like an internship have contacted me. Most people who have contacted me found my website on Google, and they represent nationalities from all over the world. Obviously, I am pleased to be contacted, and I hope sometime to be able to join some of these individuals professionally.
I wish you all a happy and prosperous year.
|Jet-powered seaplane. The project started with a simple sketch. The top picture is the original idea of the 3D model I made in Cologne. Sadly I could not open the last alias file from the course on my computer, due to some server coding and the rendering images I made down there could not be opened either on my computer. The top rendering is from a previous file, which I could open on my computer. I therefore build up a new model with better details. Click on the picture to view further details.|

Newsletter sent December 2007
Over the last two years I have contacted Danish and International companies in search of job opportunities, among these your company. Following up on previous contacts, I would like to tell how I have been doing since the latest contact.
To do well in design is about having the right references, and about establishing a wide ranging network. Over the last two years I have worked on establishing references and a valuable network in the design industry.
The latest project was a 3D modelling project for
a Danish luxury yacht company - Nordship Yachts.
The brief was to draw a 38-footer yacht in 3D. Based on the drawings the company exceeded its sales expectations and is now in a situation where they have to decline new orders. Consequently, the company withdrew its plans to present the yacht at major boat shows.
Another project for Nordship yacht was to write a report suggesting new innovative ideas with interiors targeting a younger costumer clientele. Nordship Yachts have shown interest in some of the ideas, which hopefully means that soon I will have additional design projects for Nordship Yachts.
Please have a look at the attached jpg file, which shows the 3D illustrations of the Yacht.
A few months ago a Danish company that makes accessories to the music industry asked me to work on several freelance projects. The company had found my CV on a Danish job network site and found my international design education interesting.
Since May 2006, I have been connected with V25. www.v25.dk
When I started at V25 I initially followed up on a project I had worked on during my final year at Coventry. The Idea was to develop a suitcase with a build-in weight scale in the handle. Regrettably, I realised that there was a similar project already patented.
At the moment I work on a network site for Danish
Car designers. I hope it will be a popular site for the media
and the customers. The ultimate aim is that the site will be a
site used by industries looking for automotive designers.
I am looking forward hearing from you and hope that a relationship can be developed either through freelance opportunities or a more permanent employment.
Happy New Year!
