Technicon Design wins top prize from the European Fund for Regional Development and the Ministry of Economic Affairs in Hessen

Technicon Design was one of three companies in Rüsselsheim that was awarded a top prize of €25,000.00 for the efforts they have put into urban redevelopment projects in the town of Rüsselsheim.

Technicon Design has built a new design studio in the old Opel factory building (Autowerk) right in the heart of the city which includes state of the art digital and physical modelling facilities as well as milling facilities. On Tuesday, 17 Jul 12, Patrick Burghardt, the mayor of the town of Rüsselsheim, visited our studio and was impressed by the amount of work we invested into the new studio and most of all the precision and standard to which our staff create new models.

One of the main reasons for choosing this location for our studio was the proximity to our client Adam Opel AG as well as the great transport links with the station in walking distance and excellent connections to Frankfurt Airport and all main motorways. Another reason however was also the possibilities and the atmosphere of the buildings themselves. These old Opel factory buildings “breathe” automotive history and have a flair and atmosphere that cannot be found in any other buildings in Rüsselsheim – the perfect surroundings for modern automotive design development against the background of the birthplace of automotive production.

July 4th - No tea today and expansion

Our office in San Juan Capistrano is about to expand, and we are moving a grand distance of 50 feet.

Our new facilities will have enough space to accommodate our plans for the role the Collaborative Creative Center will play in the upcoming months.

Constantly looking to adapt and innovate we are refining our virtual process to meet future demands of our industry. Of note is the integration of Maya as a polygon modelling tool and our expansion of the visualisation development to include film ready animation and post processing. There certainly seems to be a switch in the industry to provide not only a modelling service but in the way data is presented with the acceptance of digital solutions.

This week sees July the fourth upon us.... something to do with revolution, I believe. I will be shouting voraciously ‘no taxation without representation, whilst devouring vast quantities of food and Coca Cola (A tradition that dates back to 1776)
