An outdoor art installation by Wild Flag Studios.
My role was to design Les Pêcheurs's fish, and the fixtures that would let them swing with the wind, based on a general shape of the sculpture body.
I built a schedule for the project by turning customer requirements into design decisions that factored in budgeting, man-power and delivery times.
Then, I designed the actual components in an iterative fashion using Fusion360 and ensured structural capability with FEA analysis. As the concept became more concrete, I prioritized design for manufacturing and assembly for the 500+ units needed.
Finally, I requested quotes from local suppliers and evaluated them in a dialogue that involved a variety of manufacturing methods and opportunities for cost reduction. This material was then handed over to the studio so they could carry on the work.
