In an effort to bring a wider Range of Motion to wetsuits, I was given the task to recreate the seam placement design for this new era of suits.
With extensive research and tests performed by Rob Machado, this was a delicate and very intricate project as well as extremely rewarding.
The Range of Motion suit went into market in 2013 and a lot of it's construction and design was carried out into other styles since then.
Technical drawing of Wetsuit Design accompained by pictures of the actual drape for seam placement reference.
A special call out sheet to all design and construction as well as material details pertaining to the design.
A document that visually describes the different areas of the design.
A research I conducted on where do the human nerves are located which permitted me to design a piece with wider range of motion for enhanced athlete performance.
A study on laser cut shapes and textures that added to the fabric design, according to their placement can serve different purposes that will enhance the athlete's performance in the water.
