Profile A self motivated and a dedicated, geared with multiple skills, nurturing a creative and a holistic approach towards Design. A graduate designer, honed with required skills, nurturing a passion to create a concept from an embryonic stage to working model through Illustrations and CAD models. Areas of Interest • Sketching and Illustration (Analog and Digital) • Surfacing in Alias automotive • Part and Assembly modeling in Solid works • Concept Visualization and Development Software Skills • Autodesk Alias • Bunkspeed Pro • Autodesk Showcase • Photoshop • Solid works • Photoview 360 Experience • 10 weeks in plant training at L.A motors PVT ltd (Hyundai), with hands on training in front office and shop floor • Freelance projects in Solid works • Logo and Brochure creation for an EPC company in Mumbai Education PRIMARY • Coventry University MSc (Design & Transport)-2011 • Rajendra Mane college of Engineering and Technology B.E Automobile Engineering-First Class SECONDARY • Majenta Academy (Authorized Autodesk Training Center) Advanced A-class surfacing • CADD center (Foundation in Mechanical Cadd) Projects Undertaken • Coventry University, Post Graduate in Design & Transport Modulo (Module: Modeling & simulation) Objective: The purpose of this project was to create a trolley that could transport sports goods of various dimensions in a single unit, so as to reduce the effort of carrying different transporting units for various sports goods. Project Brief: The project brief was obtained through discussions with the client. The client being a rugby coach from Coventry University, the need for a single unit to carry several sports goods with wide range of sizes was perceived. Salient features like light weightiness and stack ability had to be achieved to carry the unit in vehicles. Team: The team was titled as the red team that had six members in it, with every person having a role and responsibilities. Tools used: Photoshop CS5 for concept sketching and presentation, Solidworks for 3d modeling and Photoview 360 as a render engine. Role: Being Design Director of the team, the responsibility was to channelize every member including CAD modeler to creative head to achieve the objective of the project. The conceptualization had to be directed towards fulfilling the conditions put forth by the client. The team had to be led in to specific direction, so as to fulfill the aim of the project. Hurdles: Ideation from every team member was given due consideration and streamlined towards final goal. Every team member had opinions on the project which had to be analyzed convincingly so as to respect views of the team member and also to keep a steady pace of progress of the project. Outcome: The work of Red team was declared Best Design out of five teams. Thesis Design Proposal for Automated Freight Transport Research question: Can automation of freight movers help achieve environment friendly and speedy transportation, without interference in man driven traffic? Objectives: ? Investigating existing intelligent vehicle technologies. ? Exploring social aspect of truck driving. ? Exploring the latest and upcoming fuel technologies. ? Design proposal for an automated freight vehicle. Project Brief: Extensive research was done to arrive at the brief in order to avail intelligent vehicle technology and fuel technologies to achieve a green and eco friendly freight mover. Methodology: The methods adopted to achieve the brief were primarily through literature review, desk based research including valuable inputs from experts through various communications. Tools used: Solidworks, Photoview 360, Adobe Photoshop CS5 Team: The project work was carried out independently under the guidance of course tutor Mr. Peter Atkinson. • Rajendra Mane college of engineering (Mumbai University) Accelero Braking systems Objective: The motto of the project was about clubbing the functions of braking and acceleration in to a single mechanism for two and four wheeled vehicles, so as to achieve stability while braking while re-accelerating a vehicle when on slope. Team: The team consisted of five members from the automobile branch. Each member contributed equally to the task of documentation in the process of final presentation of project. Outcome: Full scale working model of the mechanism was created and presented to the judges for evaluation. Miscellaneous Projectsrojects • L.E.V (Lightweight electric vehicle) The project was conceived from a competition held by Dassault Systems, wherein the theme was to create a vehicle for the city of Prague also known as the Mother of Cities. The motto was to create a concept vehicle to transport people in the city of Prague, which will be based on design sense from the cultural and social aspects of the city of Prague. Team: The Project was handled independently. Tools used: Alias automotive for surface creation, Solidworks for Assembly creation, Bunkspeed pro as the rendering software and Adobe Photoshop CS5 Outcome: The design was chosen amongst the top few submissions. (http://vimeo.com/49110591) • Logo Design The Logo was created for a company engineered to deal with EPC sector. Simple yet meaningful was the outline of the logo description provided by the client. Team: The Project was undertaken independently. Tools used: Adobe Photoshop CS5 Outcome: The logo has been implemented by the company on the letterhead and soon will be implemented on the website as well. • Audi TT (Project at Majenta Academy) The motto of the project was to learn the rules of advanced class a surfacing and rendering in Autodesk showcase. Team: The project was undertaken independently Tools used: Alias Automotive Outcome: Class a model of the Audi TT Modules Studied at Coventry University • Creative Studies • Modeling and Simulation • Professional Practice 2 • CAD Modeling • Research Methods • Automotive Packaging • Automotive Industry in Context • Transport Design • Project Achievements • Best Trolley Design As a part of course module awarded the best trolley design amongst other groups (Coventry University) • Sports State level badminton player, achieved gold in intra college tournaments Hobbies • I am passionate about cooking • Sketching • Pisiculture • Reading novels, favorite author being David Morell • Photography (Nature and wildlife) • Listening to music, especially rock ballads • Biking expeditions • Trekking • Bike building (two stroke Yamaha RX series) References • Mr.Peter Atkinson Senior Lecturer in Industrial Design, School of art & design, Coventry University Email: arx050@coventry.ac.uk • Mr. Amey Katkar (For Logo Design) Managing Director at The 4P solutions Email: amey@the4psolutions.com Contact number: 9820315104 Contact links: E-mail: kothehimanshu@gmail.com Contact number: 00919167376414 Linked in: http://www.linkedin.com/home?trk=hb_tab_home_top Portfolio: www.coroflot.com/himanshukothe Personal Details Date of Birth: 16th December 1986 Sex: Male Language known: English Nationality: Indian Equipped with a valid work permit for the United Kingdom (March 2014)
