    Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Furniture

    3 star(s)

    He took his inspiration from our Scottish traditions and blended them with the flourish of Art Nouveau and the simplicity of Japanese designs.

  6. Evaluation I created jewelry rings with two different methods stamping and etching.

    I really liked this design because it looked avant-garde and ancient in ways. I also gave a little thought into it. Etched Ring: I was quite proud of my designs because they had a variety of different symbols and I thought they were creative. I used different methods, different font sizes, spacing and positioning. I looked through all of the symbols on word and chose the ones that I liked particularly. However, since I have a Mac for a computer, some symbols are different to the ones on a PC computer. I explained in detail the advantages and disadvantages of the design and why I like it or why I do not like it.

  7. Product Design - analysis of the XBox 360

    You can record movies and keep on your hard drive to watch again and again. Aesthetics: The Xbox aesthetics are different depending on which version you buy. The Arcade and Premium versions of the Xbox 360 are very similar with a smooth rectangular shape with rounded edges and a big circular button in the centre with small green lights surrounding it. One is black (Premium) and one is white (Arcade) in colour with some green and silver areas throughout. The arcade is the cheaper of the two as it doesn't have the same attachments and variety of facilities that the elite has but is more well known as the colour of the Xbox as being white as it is the most often bought.
