The Sherlock kids wheel barrow has arrived for Christmas 2011.
The Sherlock kids wheelbarrow is now avaliable for Christmas.
Ian Wong from ejo design was commissioned to design a child's version of Australia's leading wheelbarrow brand - Sherlock. Ian asked me to do some concept sketches which I did using sketchbook pro on the wacom tablet. Innovative features like the front bumper, soft handle grips, and the use of the foot to lean the product against a wall for storage were adopted from the sketches in the final design. The overall proportions are critical to make a child version reflect the full size product. These quick sketches allow a designer great flexibility to refine the geometry and proportions before CAD modelling. Ian and Charles , one of our RMIT graduates, did mockups and preliminary 3D models always referring back to these original concept sketches. Ian and Ross Williams worked on the production detailing and tooling CAD files. A great team effort.
