Thanks for all the support!!

So unfortunately, as we have all experienced I’m sure, life has a tendency of getting in the way. It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you all that we are unable to deliver a hard hitting, design dominated blog for you tonight. We have been faced with the greatest of difficulties and a choice must be made; spend the Saturday night at home, maybe do some groceries, chill out and veg…..or…. hit the town hard and have a blast. We at Enki Design have chosen the latter so while we haven’t had the time to sit down and write up a post for you today we did want to acknowledge the joyous occasion that is ‘Saturday night’.

We wanted to give a shout out and simply say thanks to our few but loyal followers. At this stage they consist of mostly uni friends who we will probably end up seeing tonight anyway but never the less, unless these words are published on the internet then they may not have been spoken at all, so THANK YOU to everyone who has emailed us asking to write a blog. Ok by everyone I mean 3 but that is still 3 more than what we were expecting. To those of you out there that have chosen the option to stay in this Saturday night, while we disappoint you by not putting up a fun filled blog tonight know that there will be a few more ‘guest writers’ appearing over the next few days to satisfy your thirst for design conversation. If you would like to write something yourself please contact us here

Until then watch this space and have a fantastic Saturday night!

The Legend-The Ford GT40

Ford GT40

Alright so the first post to get us off and racing (excuse the pun) is a personal favourite of mine-the Ford GT40.

I simply LOVE this car! For me it has simply everything you could ask for. Monster V8, rear wheel drive, looks to die for, an incredible heritage and the rags to riches story to go along. This car was purpose built to be a ‘Ferrari killer’ in the Le Mans 24 hour race and as much as I also love Ferrari; to have a purpose built ‘blue collar’ workers supercar designed specifically to take on Ferrari; it sends shivers down my spine. list of websites This car literally carved itself into history. How bad ass is that? I won’t ramble too much about the story but click here for the detail.

Anyway on to design and away from my love of cars, this car did split the community. In the looks department, in my eyes it is right up there. It stands out, it is different people look when you drive pass, that’s the point on a supercar isn’t it? If they didn’t look they would certainly here you coming with that demonically possessed V8 bellowing from behind the drivers head. virtual server . However not everyone enjoys fine art and I guess ultimately it comes down to your own personal preference on styling. One thing that this car did do was get the ball rolling on motor racing design and aerodynamics. Continue reading “The Legend-The Ford GT40”

The Rundown

Alright, so this is a new website for us (yay!) and really just an opportunity for us to have some fun, express some ideas and discuss anything and everything in relation to design. Whether it be cars, motorbikes, houses, websites or phones it doesn’t matter it can all be put on the table. We are a small group who are currently studying design in these areas and, well, we needed somewhere to dump our ideas and thoughts for others to discuss.

Don’t worry you don’t have to have a degree or be an expert or anything like that. If you have an opinion on the topic feel free to comment if you don’t have an opinion on the topic but what to join in anyway then contact us by clicking here and we can set you up to add some of your own blogs or put forward a topic you had in mind.

This site is really for some fun so if people can’t play nice together we will be putting people in time out.

Enki is the referee (also Sumarian God and you HAVE to say this next bit in a big booming voice) AND WILL SEE ALL,  but mainly because we can scroll back through the posts and read, we do not have God like powers (yet).

Keep your steely eyes glued to this site, there will be some posts coming your way, unless we happen to be on exams, in that case just chat amongst yourselves.
