For this project the client wanted to update the shell design of their patented portable knife sharpener.
The client wanted to keep the exact same functionality but make the product look more aesthetically pleasing. The materials and cost of production had to be kept close to the current product.
The approach I took for this product was to simplify the lines of the product while keeping all the same functionality. A touch of color and material contrast makes the product a little more friendly and adds to the modernized aesthetic.
Some of the parts were relocated inside the shell to better clean the lines of the overall shape without affecting its functionality.
materials are kept very similar but the finishes are different to give the product a different feel .
