You would pay only once for the
perfume we've created, and receive a lifetime supply of it. The ownership
rights will be handed over to your progeny after you pass away. It stays inside
your family forever.
From the beginning of the project we knew whatever our
team end up with we keep it simple. The more pure the form, the
better the result. The fewer details the more classical the design becomes. What makes it particularly
outstanding is an extremely reduced outer shape, which is a cylinder of glass with
an inverted bullet shape that is nicely combined with an upper atomizer made of
metal, representing a bullet case frozen in a block of ice. Due to a "reversed"
attitude that we approached the project with, you will notice that all design
happens where it is least expected - within inside. We called it "inside
out design". Piece of glass that brings a feel of luxury when it is held and gives a look of elegance when
placed on a surface.

Got lucky to be published in a "tattoo ideas" magazine August issue, where I took part in T-shirt idea contest and was awarded a fifth place. Did not win anything though, nevertheless still joy to see my artwork in such a niche art profile where I never claimed to be known.
As I was given a certain freedom to choose a style for this sketch, I had big fun while painting it indeed, and as a result ended up quite artisticly. It would be actually bloody difficult to replicate or represent steps I followed up on Photoshop, since it was pure experiment of mixing and applying filters which I nearly never knew what it will lead me to. Here we go.
As few of you might know my previous design background was product design. That is what I mostly devoted myself to in the past, and where I actually passed from into car-design, nearly by chance... Just because my tutor at university found my sketches reminding him of cars, after I was suggested to take attempt of designing vechicles.
Nowadays my past still finds its place :)
Project was done in partnership with Andrey Vostrikov, who has been previously mentioned in older posts, a bright rising star of Russian Industrial Design.
It's only small part of whole process, where I had to design a multi-cooker device, which is sort of smart pot which gives you certain flexibility and ability to be programmed in accordance with prefered recepies and conditions. Worth to say that this "gadget" is extremely popular on Russian market.
