Description:
Inspired by the historical visual progression of mainboards, we are looking for an innovative design to use as the back of a large shelving unit.

We are looking for a design to go in a display case. The display case will then be used as a holder for glass shelves.
Think of it almost like a glass bookshelf. Except, instead of the back being a cheap piece of board held on with tack nails like a shelf from IKEA, the back will be the design you come up with.
Dimensions:
8ft wide
3ft high
1-3in deep

The case is being used to display tech items. So we would like the design to reflect technology. Think mother board but on our scale.
The original thought was to collect old motherboards, including ram and cpus. We were then going to lay them out on a 8x3 piece of plywood and glue them.
Instead of this, we now want to get a design that a CNC machine can make.

Material used:
Wood and old metal.

The design should induce a feeling of technological progression. So from left to right the design should transition from old circuit board tech, to current tech, to possible future tech (this part is open for interpretation)

As an example, in the attached picture, the green part is what we want to replace with our 3D circuit board idea. Please note that the picture is just one from google and does not represent the actual shelf we are building The entire shelf will sit on top of a table, meaning that it will be at eye level for the average person.
Wants:

Software:
  1. SolidWorks
  2. AutoCAD
  3. Any modelling software

Thanks for trying. We ended up going to a local shop.
My company would not allow me to prepay.
Very disappointing to see how many designers didn't even try to read the description!

Why do designers not read the brief? If we are going to enter Payment Pending contests in the hope that they pay out, then the entries need to be of a quality that warrants a prize!

The depth dimension is from 1 to 3 inches meaning that the design cannot have elements that protrude higher than 3 inches.
