A project I had to do to get into an internship. I passed the test with little trouble on account of how accurate and fast the Illustration was done but were unable to hire me because of payment issues.
For the test, I decided to create an 80’s themed watch that is both classical and retro. Faux wood or fake wood was considered by many
to be widely popular in the 70’s and 80’s. In fact, many products were designed with faux wood, from televisions to cars. So having faux wood on this would create a sense of the 80;s while maintaining the professionalism men want while wearing it.
The watch sample shown here is finished with stainless metal and faux wood texture covers part of the inner area. I left part of the watch’s inner gears to show if the watch is still working. The inner clock shows the days of the week. The strap is a metal band that is common in men’s watches. A gradient layer is applied to the metal parts for reflectivity and another for the glass area.
