For our senior year sponsored project we were given a project from Oakely. They were thinking of going into the free diver market and wanted our class to do some research and come up with a final design at the end of the semester. Here are but a few exploratory sketches in that endeavor. I decided to go with a design that Oakely ventured upon only briefly in the form of round sunglasses. I wanted the user to have a clear view all around as much as possible.

I was watching too much star-trek or something on most of these. I did not want the goggles to just wrap-around the face but I wanted some element to perhaps migrate upwards and become some design element for the forehead or other parts of the skull. Unnecessary? yes, Cool design ? possibly.

Here I wanted the "bone" look. I took some obscure design element from the Oakely catalog and went exploring.

In this sketch, especially in the snorkel profile, I wanted an over lapping and "reinforced" look. I also tried to add the "bone" look to parts of the mouth piece.

This skull was an actual skull that I pulled from Oakelys web site. Here, early on I was almost set to go with a round design for the goggles.

Here is the final mock-up at the beach. Again the Large "view ports" for better underwater viewing. The strap has a "click and tuck type design to secure the goggles to the head.
