Day 1 product design

Sarah Cho/14/Coastal Academy

Today we learned about 5 main shapes called the Platonic solids.  Then, we cut out some patterns out of a paper and made a couple of the shapes.  This was to show us how to build 3D shapes out of a flat pattern.  From this one video, I saw that if you where to put a point in the middle of the sides of a square, and then connect them, it would create a triangel, and if you where to a point on each side of a triangle, you would get a square.  This is called duality.  Then, we started creating little characters on adobe illustrator.  We are going to turn them from flat patterns to 3D shapes!
