After posting the images of the Mini cars I thought it would be appropriate to also post the images from which inspired it. Again through the functionality it has created some unusual design elements. In the coming months when I have spare time I would like to explore the theme further. Check it, Tank cars.

Well, its been a while but finally I have some work to put up. Over the next few weeks I will be able to post a lot more work too so stay tuned! This was done before my thesis, I was just playing around with some ideas that were inspired by military vehicles (next post is a collection). All the unique protection, heavy proportion and volumes of these vehicles I found a good basis for some ideation. I thought this military aspect would fit well with a city car because their simple mono volume shape you can not really play with and express in a normal approach. I find its more graphic based and being clever with bold details. Here is a sample. The first two express this theme, and the last one with its UFO body was more driven by the sketch I did for it. I thought it would be cool to rip the cockpit off a jet fighter and stick it on four wheels.
