Ducati Uno Concept
A design concept presented to Ducati/Cagiva. The design was based around the Ducati Sumpermono single cylinder engine and the use of an advanced carbon fibre chassis that not only acts as a stressed member but also incorporates items such as the air box and fuel tank. The proposed carbon swingarm had a build in exhaust muffler.
The presentation was made in the form of a hand crafted half scale model.
Gerard Thomas, Illustrator
After graduating Art Center College of Design as an Industrial Designer with an analogue skillset, Gerard went on to work for Ducati Motorcycles in Italy, experiential marketing agencies, head of design for Californian based Mountaincycles and ran his own architectural 3D visualisation studio. . . amongst other things.
The one thing all his roles have had in common was the need to visually communicate ideas, concepts and designs; sketching, drawing and illustrating has always been part of 'the job'.
Today, based in Sydney, Gerard concentrates on illustration and concept design, using his diverse background and over active imagination to conceive and visualise a broad range of subject matter.
