Justin says: I was browsing though my previous submissions and saw my Circuit design. I felt the desire to change it up a little and add a little spice to it. Also I wanted to give it a more defined “circuitry” feel.
Peter says: I seem to have developed a bit of a fondness for the 12/5/9 time telling method, which for me always suggest that the display should be split into three areas/segments (seems intuitive to do so)
I originally had an image in my head that was kind of performance car exhaust esc (think Pagani Zonda) but as I drew it up I realised that it resembled the warning sign for radiation.
Peter says: I am as many blog regulars will know a little obsessed by all things automotive. So just for a change I have done a design inspired by automotive products, in this case motorcycle fairings and headlights.
Justin says: I was doing the usual search on the internet for inspiration, logos, weird shapes or scientific influences and I saw the Cern logo (The LHC or Large Hadron Collider) and I was intrigued by the swirl effect and how lines ran off of it. That simple shape gave the impression of movement and velocity…thus, Centrifuge was born.
Peter says: I wanted to come up with a simple LED watch that could display digits using as few LEDs as possible. I wanted the design to have a detailed industrial look, which would suit various finishes, materials and colours. I then decided with a couple of tweaks that a second time telling method was also possible.
