Insipration_Identity_Packaging_Perfume Bottle by Comme des garcons



This Perfume Bottle by Comme des garcons designed by painter  Lindy Foss-Quillet and carpenter Frederic Couderc, is very different and caught my eye for many reason, i like the whole language of the type, but mainly the structure around the bottle, i love how raw it is with the way it is made on full view. very nice piece of design!


Week 8: development of ” food for thought”

First attempt of " food for thought" PhotoGrid_1384460345901

The first attempt of food for thought:

Following last weeks’ group discussion, me and Jingzhou worked on the ” food for thought” part. If we would like to customerize our own fortune cookies from the size to the color, to bake the fortune cookies of our own would be our first step  to approach to our goal. The picsare the result of  the first attempt toward “food for thought” including the size measuring information for the over all package for our kit.

Instructions Inspiration

During discussion we had toyed with the idea of supplying some simple instructions with our ‘kit’

I love the aesthetic of this studio and craft technique booklet by Connor and David designed for architecture undergrads which “encourages students to think of design and technology as an integrated whole.”

using this style could infuse a tongue in cheek feeling to our products, providing illustrated instructions may not be necessary but add an extra an interesting finishing touch. This aesthetic could also run with the packaging of our product/kit.

Dartboard Inspiration

Although this snippet of research is based mainly on the typeface used I thought this paragraph summed up our thoughts towards why we would include a dartboard quite seamlessly.

“For a while our studio was centred around a dartboard and the daily doses of arrow-based psychodrama gave us a new rhythm to our working lives. For some studios it’s ping-pong, for others it’s table football but these kinds of activities unite work-colleagues by playing them off against each other, and act as a good valve through which to release creative tensions.”

These posters were created using the dartboard typeface to advertise an in studio dart board competition.

Map Inspiration

I came across this whilst researching today, whilst this idea may not be something we can achieve in the time given, to take our map idea further into an app or an interactive website could work really nicely!

Graphic Design: Modern Designers’ excellent work with Creative Tourist

“Modern designers have been at the heart of the Creative Tourist project since its inception in 2009, creating the initial concept and managing the subsequent creative direction, working with a fresh crop of creatives each year to define the annual identity, maintaining the immensely functional website and producing their printed magazine Where To Go. Lovely stuff.”
