Post your 3D Creativity and win an Apple iPod Touch!

Create and Convince, the two obsessions of Creative Designers.

Yes, creation has always been the key mission and challenge for Designers. Working on future products, trying to anticipate and visualize the future consumer trend is a difficult exercise.

iToy Long+SketchCreation always start with a drawing, by sketching your ideas coming from multiple sources of inspiration; from your living experience, nature or existing products. But there is an additional way creativity can also be a source of instant inspiration.  It’s about sculpting!

Yes sculpting is materializing your creation in three dimensions, but it is also a source of Creative inspiration while you are shaping your object. It is during this mental iterative process that the shape you are forming is also influencing your creativity. The level of interaction you can have and feel with your shape finally inspires your creativity.

The first expression of Creativity for designers starts with a drawing by sketching in 2D their Design intent, and with CATIA we give the ability to transform this 2D design expression into a 3D reality.

Since a few years, a new generation of young Industrial Designers also expresses their creativity in 3D. With new technologies like 3D Subdivision surfaces combined with the level of interactive manipulation and user experience, 3D becomes a real creative tool. Giving the ability to designers to create in 2D but also directly in 3D like a sculptor with Virtual Clay modeling.
