Our second competition proved very popular, we received many high quality entries. This made the judging extremely hard work, but a lot of fun. The intention of the competition was to give a brief that would help expand the imagination. We also wanted to encourage the production of many sketches. As has been said on this site before, it is important to learn the art of producing a varied range of solutions to a problem. All of the winning designs here were felt to have achieved these objectives very well. Congratulations to all!

Before we get down to the business of looking at the winners however, lets introduce the judges.

For those who don't I am a graduate of Coventry University Transportation design and have previously worked for ARUP, Rover, VW, and Volvo. This site is my latest project, and one that is proving extremely rewarding!
