    IDW #61: Coffee Maker

    Topic: Coffee Maker

    Background: The saviour of many an artist during all-nighters and long days, coffee is the oil that keeps the engine running. This traditional drink first appeared in the 9th in the highlands of Ethiopia where, allegedly, shepperds noticed that their goats got more active after eating wild coffee berries. From Ethiopia it spread to Egypt and Yemen, and in the 15th century it appeared in the rest of the Middle East as well.

    In the 16th century it first found its way into Europe via Venice. After the Dutch started to import it in large quantities it became even more popular. In North America the drink at first wasn't as succesfull, but after the British merchants came short on tea the drank raised in popularity (Wikipedia is, as ever, a great source of information )

    Ever since it was first made, many different ways of making the beverage have been invented. The last decades the making of coffee has changed somewhat for the customer. Not only can you buy the beans and grind them yourselves and make coffee out of it, now you can also buy coffee in powder form and with the coming of the Senseo (I'm not sure how widely known this machine is though..) you don't even have to find out how much coffeepowder you have to use for a cup of coffee.

    For this round of IDW, design your own coffee machine. How it works is completely up to you, I suppose everyone knows how to make coffee so the process itself is pretty standard.

    One catch, try to design it in a specific style: Streamline Design, Kubism, De Stijl (a Dutch design style, I think it is even called this way in Englis), or Jugendstil -you can even come up with any other existing traditional or modern style in art. It'll require some research probably.

    This topic was suggested by Anurizm.

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw a Coffee Maker!
    2. Try to stick to an existing traditional or modern art style like Streamline, Kubism or Jugendstil -or any other style you know of.
    3. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Saturday February 23

    yoitisi, the above topic title still reads 'crop harvester'.

    also, i think the forcing a design style is a fantastic idea. I'll try to submit something this week to enable some practice with solidworks

    An art deco type. Im merging that (in a better much cleaner form) with a propaganda style poster of the WW2 era.

    Digital_Blacksmith I really like where you are starting. I think it's going to be a really cool design.

    I think I'm skipping this one. My goal is to do a "___ of the week" each week, and I tried Industrial Design this past week (just missed getting it in on time), and this week I'll try either character or creature I think. I'm still going to poke around in all of them though!

    DB. I've got to say, whilst there are loose art deco elements in the design of the product, the presentation / colours / font / graphic elements are 100% not art deco.

    I appreciate that you're trying to merge styles with the propoganda poster style, but why not just go pure art deco? I think it would have much more integrity.

    I have to agree with nutkin. The design of the coffemaker is great but the style and color of the graphic is way off of WWII posters. Look up some online and I think you'll quickly pick up the differences.

    Great concept! Run with it.

    The styles and traits ive seen in most proaganda posters were the japanese sun style burst, bright solid colors, and a solid writing. I will most likely be working on this some more, so thank you all for your feedback, and I shall be back with a new version soon. This was just a layout type, so yeah, lets hope the next version come out awesomely.

    Cool topic! The style restriction is great. Although it presents a difficult problem - Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts, Modernism, Post-Modernism, Futurism, Minimalism, De Stijl, Memphis, Streamline, too bloody many to choose from. Futurism sounds good, lets hope I don't change my mind.

    Research shows Industrial Design of the Week is addictive.
    Come get your fix.

    Flip: You're back! That's been a while Hope all is well. Mind if I keep the show running?

    Digital Blacksmith: Considered there it is still the beginning of the week, I suggest you put a bit more effort in the actual design of the coffee machine itself and the rendering of it. I like where you're going, but I think you can take it a bit further.

    Please forgive me Yoitisi (and Flip). I have decided to subject Industrial Design of the Week to Jackson Pollock's coffee maker. This is still a WIP. As you might imagine I will have to give some serious consideration to how I will render that positive space in this style.

    Below is my final. The description, if needed, is "Question: How do you know when you are through making love? Answer: When the coffee's ready!"

    Arttorney: I think that's close enough to a major art style to allow it. I'm indeed curious how you're going to handle the actual coffee maker as this particular style doesn't really allow for anything too specific I guess.

    Well, if you can pull this off, you got my vote, for that would be very difficult to come up with a coffee maker with a bunch of scribbles and paint splats in abstract form. Good luck.

    Yeah. I love challenges, and it gets me into trouble. I may have to break down and go with my nemesis, digital painting, to get scribbles that are light enough for the lowlight regions. I have a really light blue colored pencil though. We'll see.

    Another idea for your JP piece, is to give the scribbles and spots colors that represent a coffee house, or something that reminds you of coffee in general.

    Ha Ha. Everything reminds me of coffee. I am approaching a treatment of the coffee maker that I think will not be too bad. I can still perhaps work in a Starbucks green and black thing, since what I am doing is not strictly tied to color. I will do another study tonight to focus more after the two I did last night and in consideration of your input.

    Let's hope there are more than two entrants so Yoitisi can kick me out of poll if my entry turns out to be trash.

    But seriously, I am a cubist from way back so if tonight's experiments scare me I still have plenty of time to re-design in a style that lends itself to machined edges.

    I honestly dont know man, im more interested in the bottom left one with the remote, for I know what it resembles. Does the top one have a mechanical hand on it? Just wondering. But remember, both styles are clean styles with elaborate lines and reminiscent of the 17-1800's, so when doing those styles, try and stay away from the smudge and burn tool cause looking through your sketchbook, you do have some talent with a pencil, but the blur tool does not help. Trust me, its killed me a couple times mate.
