It’s been awhile since my last blog entry, but I have been hard at work with my article. I have just completed the 2nd draft. Since I don’t think I am going to add much more to the article between now and when we publish, this blog is going to be pretty short. I’ll give a rundown of what I’ve done in the past couple of weeks. After my last blog I finished my first draft, which was about David White and his 3D printed toys. However, after I finished I heard back from Michael Hern of Tecco Toys. So for the second draft I have included his responses alongside David White’s response. I split their stories up between 2 different sections. The first gives details on the designers as a profile, along with what their products are, the second section is about what their process is and how they consider problem solving in their designs. I think the juxtaposition of their two unique processes for relatively similar products will create something readers will find interesting. As for editing the 2nd draft, I hope that it isn’t too long, as of right now it is 1850 words. I just want it to be compelling enough for someone to want to finish the article. If I do anything, maybe it would to trim out the “fluff”, or to try and make phasing better.
You will all be the first to know when the article comes out, so thanks for following along!
