This is actually a slightly dated piece of content, but something I just happened to stumble across today. Astro Studios has a fantastic publication highlighting their industrial design process from 2011 available for download on their website. I love when companies produce these types of mini-portfolios with commentary. It’s one of the best ways to gain insight into the way products and ideas come to life. Equally impressive is the way companies are able to manage a complex creative process when multiple contributors are involved. Whatever your field of study, the industrial design process is, in the words of Astro, an expression of pure creative horsepower. If you’re in need of some inspiration, or just looking to kill some time, give the Astro Physics manual a read. Well worth it.
