|nootca 5 swim goggle - first sketch - prototype - first out of the mold|
Our swede goggle is gaining in popularity and with that come questions. So far one of the biggest questions is how did the goggle get its name. I have to admit creating a name for any product or company is one of the hardest things I've done, past or present. Although, that has not been the case with the current goggle line-up.
During the design phase I'll sketch out ideas, work out how to manufacture the lens and create a look for the goggle. This may take up to 100 sketches and numerous reworks to get the goggle right. While creating each sketch I will number them and refer back when needed. On this project the 5th sketch out of 38 was the right starting point - the Nootca 5 was born.
