Bagging the first Design of the Month spot is the Samsung Action Camera concept from designer Isaac Lee. I can’t begin to describe the kind of love I have for transparent objects, not just for their design appeal, but for the kind of effort that goes into rendering them. Making a product transparent means needing to detail out interior components, and adding screws, supports, and parting lines to the insides of plastic or glass parts. It’s a lot of effort for a seemingly low pay-off, but it’s the kind of effort I absolutely don’t mind rewarding!
Designer: Isaac Lee
The Samsung Action Camera, although it looks large, is quite a small contraption no larger than a GoPro or any other action camera. It comes with one wide-angle lens, along with a few other features like a record button, control knob, digital viewfinder, and an LCD screen on the top like the one seen on retro-style cameras. On the side, you’ve got two USB-C ports, and a 3.5mm aux in for an external microphone.
If you don’t know what the YD x KeyShot Inspiration Hub is, it’s best to think of it as the ultimate destination to find the most inspirational design work, as well as to have your own work featured, so it can be seen by a global audience of thousands of designers and creatives… an ever-expanding encyclopedia of good design and great rendering, if you will.
The hub helps fulfill YD and KeyShot’s broad goal of recognizing exemplary work from a distance and helping amplify it without having to rely on an algorithm, unlike with portfolio sites and social media. It relies on YD’s two-decade-long year history of curating great ideas, concepts, and case studies and ties it to KeyShot’s powerful position as the design industry’s most powerful and preferred rendering software.
The Inspiration Hub’s jury panel will hand-pick and highlight an outstanding design each week, also awarding a ‘Design of the Week’ and ‘Design of the Year’, featuring them at the top of the hub’s page while giving winning designs a permanent badge and entering them into the Inspiration Hub’s ‘Hall of Fame’. Hall-of-Famers will also be featured on Yanko Design’s Instagram page and will win exciting prizes from KeyShot. If you think your design has a chance to get featured on the hub and win, submit your design with us here.
Learn more about how to participate by visiting the hub, and also get your hands on a free trial of KeyShot 11.
