The final design! See how this design evolved on Local Motors
My typographic project Phi has been a valuable experience.
After almost a whole school year without car design I have decided to revise my Honda CRX redesign. On Local Motors you can see how the design evolved. Looking at the sketches from more than a year ago, I found that the design had been going into the right direction. Yet I felt that the project wasn't finished properly. So here's a redesign of my Honda CRX redesigned rear.

Previous attempts to designing a personal logo didn't work out. It is challenging to make something lasting. For that reason I've been using a circle or sphere as symbol of simplicity for my trademark. Now, after making dozens of sketches, it's this G with a C inside that will need to stand the test of time. Tell me what you think!
Last weekend my DIY Air Hockey Table (PDF) instructable reached one hundred thousand views! It was a huge succes when it was published in 2009. It got mentioned on several blogs like Make:, Lifehacker and Slashgear and was even translated into Russian on habrahabr.ru and Spanish on taringa.net!
So built your own air hockey table for cheap and spread the word!
I've been making several optical corrections, such as better flowing lines by adjusting the curvature in characters like P and h, thinner horizontal strokes in all characters, smoother elipses and a whole lot more!
I did this rendering during my two-week internschip at the Ford Executive Design Center in Germany back in Autumn 2009. At that time I was almost certain that I wanted to study transportation design. Now my interests have shifted to a more functional approach to design. Next week I'm visiting the Pfozheim University and hope to find out whether transportation design is what I really want to focus on.

We had expected our design to get a higher average score, but it was certainly worth our effort! Thanks Trosher!
