Summer Resolutions Check-In: Listener Ted

Wednesday, July 18, 2012 - 12:00 PM

Longtime Soundcheck listener and music fan Ted also happens to be an artist and designer - so it makes sense that his "summer resolution" is to design a piece of furniture facilitating the "playing of, listening to, or storage of music or an instrument." Ted told us, "I have been thinking for almost a year about some furniture we planned to do already with a musical theme. I would definitely appreciate the deadline." 

Now halfway through July, we checked in with Ted about his summer resolution, and he told us that despite his hectic summer - "I have definitely been productive." Here's the evidence!

From Ted: "The way I usually work is to do a bunch of thumbnails like the ones I am showing here in pen and ink, sometimes take a handful of these to a secondary design sketch in computer or hand rendering, and then select a direction to refine and do production drawings. I'd appreciate any feedback, as that would probably help me decide on directions to go!" 

You heard the man - help him out! Leave your comments for Ted below.

Really dig the giant analog sliders and knobs concept, esp. if applied to an entire space, or one great big wall. But maybe think loosely when it comes to musical notation...stay away from the literal music note!
