it begins with an idea for a product, interior or graphics package. keep thinking... will it have social or cultural significance? what design aesthetic should it employ? what are the limiting factors and manufacturing implications? cmc circles around an idea with an holistic approach toward understanding the project from every angle. when a logical progression is uncovered, the idea is validated.
design projects are rarely resolute and often daunting. the complicated series of steps, each contingent on the outcome of the previous, can be easily knocked off course. drawing on experience and an extensive knowledge of materials and manufacturing techniques, cmc simplifies even the most complex projects, defining a clear path toward manufacture and market.
despite the most rigorous attention to design detail, preparing for manufacture requires a sensitivity to processes and technologies that may not be apparent on paper. whether it be a fully working representation or a simple model for visual aid, prototyping is the cornerstone of understanding and an integral part of every cmc project.
