Interview with Frederic Galimard at Thursday 21st of April 2016: DI: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
FG : The main inspiration for this design was to create an entirely new zip line experience for the many people who love to fly on a zip line.

DI: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
FG : It was important to create a zip line that combined the thrills of a rollercoaster with the sense of flight that comes from a zip line with a completely safe structure that could be built in situ and adapted to meet the needs of each location.

DI: What are your future plans for this award winning design?
FG : We are constructing new EcoZip adventures for attractions in Australia and across the globe.

DI: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
FG : It took us 2,000 hours to develop the EcoZip.

DI: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
FG : The EcoZip design was inspired by the feedback from the many customers who have enjoyed other zip lines we have built.

DI: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
FG : Ecoline is creating new EcoZip adventures for other companies. We are open to future possibilities for the sale of the product.
