We are looking for creative and talented people to present a unique Running Board (RB) design. The RB will be mass produced for a next generation full sized pickup truck. Currently, there are many universal RB varieties on the market but most all share a similar design that adds little to the trucks appeal.
We are looking for a RB with appealing and unique geometry that can be manufactured at a reasonable price. We are also interested in incorporating a contemporary mix of materials, material finishes, textures, and accentuated lighting in a unique way. Please see our attached pdf file to see lighting products that are available.
Things to consider:
We have created a vision board (SEE ATTACHMENTS) with design elements we like for reference and inspiration.
We have created mock-ups of running board designs with unique geometry and with individual pros and cons labeled. If presented in a photo-realistic render, incorporating contrasting materials, textures and possibly lighting, one of these may prove to be what we are looking for.
Please note these mock-ups are poorly presented because of the lack of rendering software, not because of poor geometric design.
Color is typically matte black, gloss black, red, or chrome although these are not limitations.
Words that come to mind: Rugged, modern, sleek, unique
If you have any questions at all please feel free to ask and we will do our best to get back to you ASAP.
Wants:Presentation - We have very high priority on the contrast of material finishes and understand presenting this may pose a problem for those of you unfamiliar with rendering programs. Please take this into account when submitting your design.
Function - Needs to act as a functional step platform for entering the vehicle
Creative Approach - Needs to add to the vehicles total style rather than solely functionality (geometry, color scheme, texture contrast, lighting)
Cost to Manufacture - Needs to be reasonably low cost to make. Understanding of manufacturing methods would be beneficial
Don't Wants:The old school tube extrusion with end cap style. This style is available off the shelf in many varieties and adds no artistic appeal to the overall vehicle look.
Additional InformationEdit: Thank you all for participating in this project. There are many great concepts, so many that we are likely to add additional prizes. We are currently evaluating each submission thoroughly and plan to announce winners early next week. Please be patient with us.
Edit 2: All, we will be adding 2-5 additional $100 prizes to accompany the original. Winners will be announced Thursday afternoon ~19:30 GMT. Thank you for your patience.

Vehicular LED Display Case
I am prototyping a display for a startup that will be mounted on the tops of vehicles. It will eventually be either CNC milled or 3D printed, depending on the material decided on. For this display I am looking for a sleek case design that also meets the specifications below. The display panel itself is 81.75625 cm x 15.24 cm and needs to be able to slide into and out of the case when a side panel is removed. The electronics are mounted on the back of the display panel and require a clearance of 5.08 cm. There needs to be a source of ventilation for the electronics except on the top as it will be outdoors, as well as one usb port and space for the power cable on the bottom of the display case. For the feet, they will be made of magnets with quite a strong pull force that have been dipped in rubber to prevent scratching. This also needs to be accounted for in the design with there being 3 to 4 feet supporting the case. There are other cases for various products that need to be designed/redesigned, so we would like to find somebody to work with through this contest.
