Company not to be disclosed | Concept designer.
Test project with a European mega yacht company • Maj 2011 - Present.

  • The client would like to see concepts of what a 50-meter private yacht could look like.
  • This project remains active from time to time.
  • The yacht company allowed me to show my concepts but not allowing to tell who they are.
   
wingsail, shipping, trimaran, zero emission, ship zero emission.  

Blue Technology | Responsible designer.
Design and 3D modelling • Wingsail shipping conceptt • bluetechnology.dk • 2010 - Present.

  • Development of a completely new type of ship which, via the technologies of wing sails, multi-hull and lightweight materials, paves the way for zero emission maritime transport.
  • Since 2010, I have been responsible for illustrations and participated in the development of the design.
  • The concept where first time introduced at the SMM in Hamburg (SMM‚ the worlds leading maritime trade fair at Hamburg Messe) in September 2017, garnering plenty of praise, leading to a establishment skilled advisory board.
  • In 2018, we obtained support from the Danish Maritime Foundation and have since then implemented a “Proof Of Concept” with very promising results.
  • This type of ship can carry large quantities of cargo without the use of fossil fuels and still at a good speed (average 17 knots on a route across the Atlantic).
  • The next loop consists of a JIP that runs over 2021 and 2022 and results in us achieving a TRL6 (Technology Readiness Level 6), after which the EU can take “part ownership” for a period and make sure to spread the technology.
  • Potentially, these ships could reduce world CO2 emissions by 2-3% before we hit 2050.

  • Designed a race car based on a newly developed chassis.
  • Reached the finals consisting of the seven best participants out of 27.
  • The 7 finalists’ concepts were exhibited at Aquilas stand at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham, January 2014.

I worked with Torben Nyegaard Poulsen, where we had two weeks to design a concept. A proposal which was selected among the 7 finalist to improve the design. At the next stage, we had 8 weeks to design a new and improved proposal.

Wheel rims

3D modelling, wheel rims in Alias Studio Tools. Some of them are taken inspiration from somE of my for- mer concepts and then restyled and other are new styles.

It takes around half a day to do one concept.

Cool plane concepts, flight concept, aviation design, Automotive Design Workshops, David Hilton, Cologne  

Automotive Design Workshops • David Hilton • Cologne

In August 2010 I went for 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 on 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.

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.

April 2014 I decided to redesign the concept.

Truck with no blind spots

February 2012
You cannot fix blind spots simply by new technology in old aged design. To solve the blind spots the truck design needs a new design.

Restyling of a former school 3D project

February 2012
I made the first illustrations in the early nineties, in Corel Draw.
The design was inspired by Walt Disney’s $crooge McDuck, whose limousines has the driver sitting outside.

The first 3D project at Coventry was to build up an idea we had and therefore I chose this concept.

In January 2012 I found the 3D file and chose to build up a new model, based on the same theme with a new design.

Golf cart

February 2012
An idea I got due to a Danish company who launched their idea of a the golf cart, but my view on it was that there was not much new about it compared to what there were already on the market of golf carts.

In 2008 I started to look what could be made better by looking at the golf carts that are out on the market. One of the details I think that is a problem at current golf carts is to fasten golfbags in the rear, which is often with some cheap materials on the cart. Furthermore I also looked at the ergonomics and playing with the idea that there should be able to sit 3 adults beside each other, therefore I came up with a circular bench instead of the straight benches that are on traditional golf carts.

Therefore my idea is that in the rear are integrated golfbags so you put the golf clubs into the car, plus in the rear there is a folding chair for a fourth player.

I have looked at the design concept several times, and improved details over time.

Jaguar E-type

January 2012
A redesigned school project. A second year school project, had to redesign a classic design. At the time, I chose the Jaguar E-type, where I at the time built up my idea into 3D. I therefore decided in late January 2012 to look at the 3D model again and chose to build a new simple 3D model up.

Sideview renderings and a 4 day 3D modelling project

January 2006
It started with a side view sketch. I then decided to scan in the drawing and make some side view renderings from the simple sketch.

I wanted to practice shading and reflections seen from an object from the side. I think I used a day on it.

From one of the renderings I wanted to build up a quick 3D model. I wanted to use as lees days as possible to build up the model, I used 4 days on the 3D modelling.
