I don't know about you......but BroncoHauler, that bumper you posted looks like it would work damn pretty sweet as a Presidential campaign standing-platform.
In seriousness though --- 100% agreed.
The truly best designs (for almost anything) are pure, focused......they don't try to appease everyone. Or, put another way.....what makes a design truly great is quite often what is *intentionally NOT included* in it.
Boywonder has stated this a couple times, and I'm totally feeling the same way about this --- this is purely an entertainment-driven exercise
(although if we hit on something cool, there's the ability to create some copies. Those wouldn't be just for ourselves, this could/would be for anyone who thinks this "crowd-sourced" approach to bumper design has generated a great (and attractive!) idea and sees unique value in getting one made too!)
More posts to come!
Definitely attempting to apply a bit of the "Automotive Design Process".....sift through the ideas that get kicked around here and giving them experimental form/shape/function.
If you're feeling the vibe here --- keep the crazy ideas coming!
At some point we can all collectively decide which ones are most worthwhile to incorporate into pushing forward with some sort of focused "Overall Goal" for the bumper designs.*
It's just for fun! Let's keep it rollin'......
*edit: and also rock slider/side-step designs!
