Today is great for my studio. The very discussed Lotus Clock is now on sale for American customers at AHALife in New York. Come have a look at the product and the great work AHALife has put into promotion the product. The product is made in London, UK and is available for all US customers through AHALife and the rest of the world through Dripta Design Studio.
Been getting a lot of requests lately of what I use to do my work. So I thought I give you guys a breakdown of all my design tech!
So finally, Fedex arrived to day to pick up the first two clocks heading towards New York. Being one of the large reason I had barely anytime for the past 3 months to write my articles and work on my freelance projects as I was busy completing the clock for my customers in New York and Sweden. Finally the clock is completed and works perfectly. The clock is now available for sale at dripta.com and will be available at ahalife.com in September. The clock’s toughest design aspect was to keep all the petals firm in one place yet smooth moving all in one characteristic. As the mechanism I designed is under patent pending I can disclose the exact design but once approved I will share this design solution with you guys. All in all the past months have been tough and fun at the same time. My eye to details and my need for perfection in terms of the finish of the clock delayed the shipment to New York as even a small mark on the clock was rejected during inspections last week. Its now all done and as promised I have shared some quick pics with you guys showing parts of the process. Enjoy!
Ok so lets start with some pics of the after the first prototype was completed. Pictures below shows the project manager showing how the mechanism for the smooth movement works!
Next are some pics of the fun photo shoot at the Atton Conrad studio in London.
Finally, today I managed to get some quick pics with my phone on the packaging, the final white clock and the pink limited version before it was shipped. Unfortunately, the pics looks very different on a camera phone but its a beauty in real life. Enjoy
Hey guys, I have been extremely busy getting the new site ready. As most of you know dripta.com was always a flash site. Finally, the new site has been made and now on-line for every one. Its faster and easier to navigate for customers and bloggers. New products are regularly updated. View past freelance work too and find out what the studio can do for you as a customer. Currently, the Lotus clock is available for order and a few new items are going to be available for Christmas 2010. Hope you all like the site. Leave your comments on what you like below. See you guys in the next post. I have some great photo shoot pictures of the Lotus clock to share.
So today I was at the London Mela. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it was a collection of great musicians and food. The two things Indians love the most. I terms of music, I was mostly glued to the Desi Hip Hop stage and at times the classical stage. This was the most chilled, relaxed and perhaps best London Mela I have seen, the programme wasn’t the best, but what was recaptured was the focus on people invited to come and enjoy themselves and they did, mellowed by the summer sun.
The Main stage was a real mix this year with the more traditional performers of Pandit Dinesh & Kishon Khan sharing the programme with the likes of Sukshinder Shinda, Surinder Rattan and the Sona Family, but the most interesting element at this part of the Mela had to be the Rishi Rich Showcase.
You’ve got to admire the guy, I know it’s his business, but better than anyone Rishi Rich continues to introduce, develop, promote and mentor, up and coming talent on to the scene.
No more talk, just enjoy the pics and videos! [AUDIO WARNING | PLEASE KEEP YOUR SPEAKER VOLUME DOWN] Forgive me for the video sound, realised later that the loud volume completely destroyed the sound reception of the video in my iPhone. In any case you guys will see it was a lot of fun.
