Sketch Research for a recent project from Roshan Hakkim on Vimeo.

Always been working on speed. As a designer I believe that conceptualization comes first. Hence quick techniques can always be helpful to create more concepts and to represent them better...
The top one took 7 mins.. while the other took 10. For now I am sticking to lateral views.

Semester 6.5

Semesters between my college semesters is the time when I learn the most if I take time vs knowledge into consideration. Here I intend to discover more techniques of sketching and rendering. And its far time that I started to sketch soles. Need to work loads!....
Just a casual jogging kick. Pastels and markers. Managed it under 10 mins.

Swoosh Love!

A retouched version. Personally dislike it. 
This one happened in class. Turned out to be a bit artsy...

Few starters.....

Nike Consider

One week short project. A floater replacement concept where it uses a simple strap cut out from industrial waste. Through its simple closure its a replcaement option when compared to other systems such as laces and velcro. The sandal is designed taking in to account the current interest of Nike in its Considered Design segment- to be eco friendly and easily manufacturable.
Check the whole concept by clicking the header of the post!

Have sketched quite a lot over the last few weeks. But owing to a tight schedule I have not been able to scan. :(
Right now, looking for a 6-7 month internship ideally starting from june.

As I mentioned before the project is to design a Nike MTB shoe for the London Olympics 2012. Here the concept was a double closure system so as to provide the user with a closure system with which he could alter the foot hug on both surfaces of the upper -the outer and the inner. It employs a simple strap which has a velcro at its terminal ends.
Me personally like the bottom sketch as it is not one of the 'Roshan' views..;)...and also took just 10 minutes for it. Credit goes to the situation when one has to submit a whole design process presentation within 2 hrs with all the concept sketches!...Cheers

warm up

Mountain Biking shoe concept
Nike + Furai = ?
Form follows function. Inspired by the Mazda Furai the concept employs an upper of engineered PU. The sharp surfaces are designed so as to cut the air so as to increase the speed of air flow through the intakes and the forefoot inlets. Once the foot is cooled the warm air would exit through the counter outlet due to the pressure levels between the interior and exterior environments of the shoe.
