02. Design Process


Werkemotion Design Studio created a new exterior for the Albertina River cruise ship. Ideas created during the sketch phase were transformed into 3D models for manufacturing.


Concept Stage

Search for visual identity started with the sketching phase. It often takes several iterations to merge new visual and at the same time respecting clients' needs and manufacturability

Prototyping Stage

We have prepared manufacturing data for all visible panels and manuals for applying the final livery design. The river cruiser was assembled in the Komárno shipyard

03. Concept Phase

Sketch Development

Sketching is the fastest way to explore new design possibilities and find distinct features for future ship design.

We knew that livery design will play a major role in this project. We worked with graphics and colours from the beginning of the project.

04. Development

3D modeling

3D data are used to create realistic visualizations of the future river cruiser. This allows investors and engineers to fully understand the design concept and make decisions regarding the development process.

Livery Design

The livery design has a major role in this project. We have prepared all the manuals for applying protective coats and graphic elements and defined the RAL colours of individual parts.
