Sketches of the first edition’s winning project by Rollo Dixon

The competition is open to anybody, regardless of age or work experience. DesignerTechniques particularly encourages entries from people who are studying, or aiming to study, car design.

The brief

“Imagine that you have travelled to the moon with four other lucky tourists. You arrive on the moon, which is still very empty, and now you and your four travel companions have six hours spare time. What are you going to do, and what kind of vehicle are you going to do it in? In other words, it is your job to design a moon recreation vehicle.”

As for the first competition, the new brief has again been written with the importance of sketching in mind.


Submissions must include two boards that show a selection of sketches and development work produced before the final design, as well as a wide range of thinking. A third board will present the final solution.

As Allan Macdonald – founder of DesignerTechniques – explains, Ideas, and lots of them, as well as the ability to describe them visually will be your key to winning.”

The deadline for submissions is Monday April 30th 2007.

The First Prize includes a Wacom Intuos3 A5 wide tablet, a gift box set of Scott Robertson‘s “Lift Off” and “Start Your Engines” books and a hardback copy of “Design Sketching” book signed by one of the authors.
