In the early 90's I was asked to design for tableware company, Australian Fine China. Originally Bristile China, the name change was aimed at distinguishing the company from Chinese imports and to recognize Australian Fine China as a truly Australian product and manufacturer. The design brief was also to place the focus on Australian imagery.
In the beginning all design development was done with paint, pencil and paper and based on spot colour only. This experience was the starting point for exploration of technologies that could simplify the design process. It was very early days for computer based solutions so the area was rich for innovation. The experience of 2D/3D design for tableware ultimately lead me to meeting Phil Dench, Computer Design Incorporated, Silicon Graphics, Cyberware, MIT 3DP and finally starting headus with its focus on 3D scanning.
