solidThinking Evolve® 9.5 – A New Level of Modeling Control

My initiation into the design community began more as a content writer than as a design enthusiast. Typical design jargons like renders, 3D modeling and cropping were alien words for me.

He was surprised to know that a majority don’t use dishwashers and we still prefer hand-washed clothes to the washing-machined ones! In any case, without further ado, let me announce the Electrolux Design Lab 20 Semi Finalists For 2013.
