Personal Aesthetic and Main Project Plans

One of my main personal aesthetics is minimalism. I am drawn towards designs and styles that prioritize simplicity, functionality, and a focus on essential elements. I believe this style is inspired by past personal projects and my general interest of engineering. I feel that a lot of complex designs focus entirely on the function and the look or style follows later. I think the style that follows from these types of designs is generally minimalism as there are no extra elements that do not add to the function of the design. Some of my past projects include gokarts, minibikes, ebikes, quadcopters and electric skateboards. With all of these projects, my main objective was that they functioned and nothing more, and so naturally they all took to a minimalist aesthetic.

I would like my main project to have a pared-down visual style with clean lines and a limited color palette, very inline with a minimal aesthetic. My project will be an ebike battery or at least the enclosure for one. This will be going on a bike that is also minimalist and so I would like to match its style. I am picturing a simple brushed aluminum box with hidden connectors and minimal status lights. Although I am currently set on the aesthetic I have chosen, I am still open for other ideas and styles. I think it would be very interesting to step outside my comfort zone and try a new aesthetic with this project.

The bike my battery is going on.

    I always enjoy the minimalistic approach and how to could apply it to your ebike. Would you make any other changes to the bike? Such as simpler pedals or handlebars?

    should be a fun project at the end. It would be cool if the top of the battery box matched the curve of the fender. also if you want another minibike i got one for sale.
