Sliceform prototype Yakult bottle

I made this for a Packaging Design project for school. This is a prototype of the shape for the redesign of a Yakult bottle. I learned this technique myself using 3D studio Max and Illustrator. With this I can make the shape very fast and also get correct feel of the shape fast. I will cover this with clay or fillers to make a final prototype that looks more like a real bottle. It is a easy way if you can't make good clay models by hand. Also a technique you can use to make things pop up in a pop-up card, because I can fold this shape flat by pushing it to one side. I will make a tutorial for this very soon.

I got so excited by the subject of sliceforms that I wrote some software to create sliceforms with the computer.

It's a plugin for the free Google SketchUp software, you can find it at Public Art International's website:

Prototyping own gimbal

As you can see below this is a ver different gimbal than most out of there. And mostly made out of aluminium instead of carbon. However this is the first prototype as we will change and upgrade the design over time.

Pop up beak CD / Packaging

This is a pop up CD packaging using a well know pop up beak design, this is one of the most basic pop up card design there is. However it is not originally my design however this is an interesting design. Here below is the template of it that you can make one yourself. This packaging is way better then the Pochup which could never stay flat unless you put it between a telephone book.

Printing on sponge

Well am learning this myself though but its quite usefull as it's not a technique that is openly published how to do actually. But today I done several tries and even learned few extra things along the way. But mainly learned this so I dont have to pay stupid expensive prices most of the companies ask when for doing this. However I do need to see how i could cure the inkt cause it need to be heaten up so it won't wash off when there is accidentally get water poured over it.
