Reverse Flow, Offset BBQ Smoker: That is actually visually appealing.

Contest Closed
Reverse flow, offset BBQ smokers cook amazing barbecue. I am looking to start a small custom reverse flow bbq smoker fabricating company that prides itself on quality built reverse flow bbq's with the design and visual appeal that our industry lacks. 97% of smokers out there are made with all-black powder coated steel. With this business venture, I want to target the every day "backyard BBQ'er" and have these smokers sit on their back porch/deck. From the various company's out there who build smokers, there is very little color and trim details such as stainless steel, wood accents and painted powder coating. I'm looking to change that.

I'm looking for someone to create an initial design for our first prototype. From there, the plan is to create 3-4 more different sized reverse flow smokers with varying design finishes. Final goal would be to have 5 different sized reverse flow smokers to create a "product line" for us to build and sell.
Design and finished look is number one priority. Our steel fabricators will make sure it is built to my standards. I want to see design details, colors, use of wood and stainless steel.
Don't Wants:
The typical boring black smoker.

Let´s face it, a 400 $ pre pay is not that much, if you plan to start manufacturing BBQ's that will cost some hundreds each to make.
But my main concern is another entirely: You want "good look" What does it mean? Are you Ok with rolled surface? Or do you prefer a square box? Take a look into: for a span of smokers available. Which do you prefer and why? How big is the cooking area or volume that you prefer to have? Any idea on the insulation?. Many practical questions, and some of them will be answered only after making tests on the prototype.
Regarding the design to use: very lakely all designs could be used with success by a dedicated cook and all designs will be defended fiercely by its fans. A design that is strange or odd may convince customers, but it will require a stronger sales pitch.

Hey all - this is my first time using this service, so please bear with me. We're a start up and keeping initial costs down at the beginning is a priority. Cad Crowd offers a free version of the contest and I would like to utilize that offer at this time. If that does not meet your standards, please move on. Thank you.

Elecyr Hybrid Energy Storage System
Our products connect directly to solar panels or the grid and store energy to provide power at a later time. They can be interconnected to form a microgrid and share the power collected among multiple systems. Our current product starts at 15kW, weighs about 700lbs and can be expanded to a megawatt. We are developing a family of lower end systems starting at 2500 watts and weighing less than 100 lbs. We're looking for a consistent, modern, clean and attractive look that will bridge the range of products and be sufficiently visually striking to help with our entire company identity. We're looking for a clean functional design that's very simple. Think iPhone and Cuisinart. We also would like to minimize tooling costs and keep the cost of the packaging as low as possible. We have a mechanical design team so we're primarily looking for a conceptual design look rather than a detailed package. I've attached a couple images of our existing power stack and a possible design for the 2.5kW 100 lb unit. 605×330×445 mm (LWH). We are also looking to do a scaled up unit at 5kW that's also portable and a more fixed unit at 8kW that is more like the large system we have now. I've attached a sketch of how that one will assemble internally. Again, we're looking for someone to bring a consistent, recognizable and unique look to the product line while staying very simple and clean.

DOOH Kiosk
Need a kiosk designed for Outdoor and Indoor Retail Properties. There needs to be a charging station (USB ports, Charging Cables, and Wireless Charging), seating area, LED Light strip on the sides, and 4- 32" displays. We are working with a telecom carrier and will have their branding on the top displays, while the bottom displays will be for third party advertisements.
Men's Wristwatch
The design submission should include: Rendered Imagery: showing front, back, top, bottom left and right, and 3/4 perspective views. Rendered views for the front, back, top and bottom can be combined into one or two image files if appropriate. The perspective view must be a separate image. It is encouraged that the rendered images be as realistic as possible and provide enough lighting to show design details. Environment and lighting style is left to the designer. Requirements: 1. Men’s wristwatch. 2. It should have an outdoors and sporty look. An ideal buyer would be someone in the armed forces. 3. Illumination around the watch ring and on the hours seconds and minutes hand using tritium tubes. 4. The closest competition brand would be Luminox.
Medicine Ball
We are looking for design concepts for a PVC/Rubber medicine ball design. I have included a file showing some of the products on the market. We do not want to copy the designs but want something unique and attractive for a commercial gym application. We desire the ball have a texture on the surface to aid in gripping the ball when it is thrown. Color scheme desired is gray and orange but we are open to other ideas if you think it is very attractive. The ball diameter needs to be 14 inches in diameter. A logo needs to be on the product and also the weight of the ball in pounds.
