These inferences were then used to design and build a working desk lamp.</p><p>Project Overview</p><p>ROCKET LAMP</p></li><li><p>It required the ability to zero in on visual elements and </p><p>cultural connotations common to cars of those times. These </p><p>elements evoked a sense of high speed, mass, elegance, </p><p>cutting edge innovation and great attention to detail.Rocket </p><p>era cars were inspired by technological advances which took </p><p>place in the 1940s and used the second world war as a </p><p>center display stage.</p><p>Visual Research</p><p>Final Solution</p></li><li><p>INDUSTRIALGRAPHIC</p><p>ARCHITECTURE</p><p>DESIGN</p></li><li><p>SCHNITT SHAVER</p><p>Project Overview</p><p>The scope of this project covered creating a brand for a particular target market, </p><p>designing a family of products under this brand, and finally making a model of one </p><p>of the products.
