Project THOR – Design Thread 11
PLEASE READ THIS POST CAREFULLY!
This is our crown design thread where our goal is to come up with ideas and suggestions regarding the style, shape and intricacies of our crown.
It’s our goal to have as many different participants as possible contributing to it, therefore we ask that everyone PLEASE follow and respect the simple guidelines for this thread that are listed below.
Here’s how this thread will all work: In the first part of this design step we’ll discuss our ideas for the crown, and at the same time everyone will have an opportunity to present their preferences so that others can informally vote on it. After a period of tossing ideas around (the brainstorming period ends in about a week or two), CzechMate (me) will collect the most interesting and popular ideas and send them to Triton, who will prepare a number of sample crown designs based on our project theme and given suggestions. Once completed, those layouts will be presented for everyone to review. Please understand, that we cannot incorporate ideas, that are obviously against the theme we selected, even though they might gather some support.
IMPORTANT: Bear in mind the cost impact your choice can have on the project! The best cost wise solution is to select a crown Steinhart already produces. That would save some money for other features, like display case back, packaging, etc... Of course we can have copletely new crown of our own design, but that would require significant expenses which we can miss in the end of the project. So be WISE with your proposal please!
After Triton renderings are complete, we will proceed with a vote.
In order to avoid complete chaos, and to make every participant’s proposal easy to follow, please observe the following guidelines when contributing to this thread.
PLAN FIRST, THEN POST.
Take some time and carefully think about what you want the crown to look like. Which elements are important to you? Write them all down, or prepare a mock-up using them, and then present it in ONE post using the title “MY PROPOSAL”.
TWO PER CUSTOMER.
Only one list or mock-up per participant and one possible update later (in separate post), please! Why? There are a number of reasons: we want to avoid the inevitable flood of thrown-against-the-wall ideas; we need to keep this thread organized so that Triton can use the ideas; and mostly because we want as many participants as possible to have a chance to contribute their own ideas - we don't want to see this thread monopolized by a small minority of the more vocal participants.
READ AND VOTE.
Read the proposals of the other participants that are posted here, and if you see one that you really like and think it should be used for our crown, click on the post’s “Like” button. Ideas with the most “Likes” will be the ones used by Triton.
Please don’t use the “Like” button in this thread unless it’s to indicate a crown proposal you would like to see used.
Also, likes given to a post that is not marked as PROPOSAL will not be counted.
Please note that the first post of this thread – this post – will be the one used to display the sample crowns prepared by Triton.
And finally, remember that this thread and design step only concerns the crown. Please stay on topic.
