This week I was put into a group with Tim and tasked to design some props for the inside of a ship. I was to create an external door with Tim and door controls on my own. A used a lot of reference images of both Star Trek: The Next Generation and real life as these were what we were to base our designs on.
After gaining an understanding on the general theme of the design I decided to start concepting both props. As the door is external it needs to be heavy and strong and likely in the form of an airlock. I took this into consideration when designing both it and the control panel to ensure that it looked the part. I have also considered the adding of warning labels and other graphics to ensure the door looked as important as it needs to.
