Description: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.
Wants:Visual attractiveness of the design, consistent look across the products, simplicity
Don't Wants:Not looking for a curvy Kia dashboard kind of look. More of an Apple and Swiss/German design kind of approach

Help Design Our Next-Generation Solid Oxide Fuel Cell
BRIEF Adaptive Energy is a manufacturer of low-watt solid oxide fuel cell systems for backup and offgrid power. Our P250i system is typically mounted inside a cabinet and is seen by very few customers in person, though it’s promoted online and in distributor showrooms. With the upcoming launch of the fourth generation P250i, we have an opportunity for a minor update of physical branding elements. OBJECTIVE Create a look / feel for the Gen 4 P250i that meets agreed-upon criteria and maintains cost efficiencies. The specific output will be design elements for the physical product, with an opportunity for us to have two rounds of revisions. KEY PROJECT DETAILS 1. Design Criteria Design for the P250i should: Look great on the website, in product spec sheets and on a distributor showroom floor with a look / feel that’s Sleek Innovative Accessible Age well and look as good on day 1 as on day 365 of year 10. Reinforce how we want customers to feel about Adaptive Energy, which is that we provide peace of mind with our reliable, highly durable power products. Distinguish our products from other popular backup sources such that the P250i is perceived as undoubtedly in a class by itself. Convey key information: Manufacturer: Adaptive Energy, LLC Product line: Performer Series Product name: P250i Contact info Be easily manufacturable at a scale of 500 units at a time (for example screen or pad printing would be acceptable, decals would not be acceptable). Account for features on the system including: On/Off Fuel Reset Fuel inlet 8-60V output indicator beside the main power leads Not interfere with features such as: Intake warnings (that is, the design can’t block intake warnings on the intakes) 2. Product Information Dimensions: 13”H x 17”L x 7”W The unit might shrink in width and height by half an inch. Weight: 19 lbs Operating Temps: -40 oC - 50 oC Will share product photos. 3. Examples of Competitive Systems What most of these systems have in common is that they are installed inside enclosures and are not viewed multiple times per day, week or month. In some cases, only a few people ever see the product and that’s only when there’s a problem and a maintainer has to visit the site to fix something.

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