Porsche Watering Can

Prototyping Form – Fall 2017

 

The watering can project was a branding exercise where we were challenged to convey an existing brand's design language through a watering can. I chose Porsche because I was interested in the way different curves flow smoothly into one another in their car designs. I enjoyed exploring how Porsche cars, both new and old, have their curved designs punctuated by the occasional sharp edge.

Making Process

To create the form, I carved the main shape out of blue foam and wood, and then spackled it. In order to remove imperfections, I sprayed the form with grey primer, so that imperfections would become visible, and then sanded the imperfections down. Finally, I attached the handle and sprayed the entire form with a metallic grey finish.
