Welcome to the fifth and final phase in the Domino?s Ultimate Delivery Vehicle challenge.
Now it is finally time to show this extraordinary vehicle, a vehicle that will re-define the delivery of pizza, to the world. In order to do that, in this final phase the challenge will be to create a series of photorealistic renderings. These renderings will show the final design of Domino?s Ultimate Delivery Vehicle in environments it may be seen in, as well as to show off the enhanced functionality and design features of the vehicle. Since we have completely re-designed the interior around the pizza delivery process, showing how this redesigned interior, as well as the exterior elements that aid in delivering pizza is crucial. One of the best methods to do this is through photorealistic renderings.
Part of this phase will also be to create the "Skin" of Domino?s Ultimate Delivery Vehicle- your interpretation of the most appropriate branding for Domino?s Ultimate Delivery Vehicle. This is your chance to show how you would use the skin of the vehicle to make it really stand out and attract attention wherever it is. Combined with the unique design of Domino?s Ultimate Delivery Vehicle, this skin should emphasize the Domino's brand as well as the fact that Domino?s Ultimate Delivery Vehicle is just that -- a unique delivery vehicle specially-designed to keep your pizza safe and make for a perfect delivery every time.
In order to help this vehicle stand out from the crowd, Domino's is interested in emerging technologies such as the use of Electro Luminescent Vinyl, and LED Lighting, which could be used to illuminate parts of this vehicle such as the logo or under body. This allows you to "extend" the branding of the vehicle beyond simple color graphics, especially for night time deliveries which makes up a significant portion of Domino's deliveries. The design and use of this lighting should be purposeful to literally "highlight" the functionality of the Ultimate Delivery Vehicle.
In addditoin to branding the vehicle, this is your chance to bring certain design cues from Anej Kostrevc's Pack design that the Domino's team and the Local Motors community liked so much. Such features could be done with the use of graphics that could both enhance the branding of the vehicle and the unique look inspired by the orginal Pack design. The goal is to create the worlds best looking, most functional and cost effective delivery vehicle.
