5 Creative Products

This week I’ll be focusing on Kickstarter concepts/ideas

The Goose

Image

Ever tried to shake an egg really hard to try and scramble it before you cracked it; it’s nearly impossible. The goose solves that problem, and creates an easy way to scramble the egg to create it to be perfectly blended. This way you can make soft boiled eggs with ease, and have a consistent taste throughout. The goose has many uses for egg enthusiast, and it’s creative because the company made a new use for a problem that might have not been conscious before.

Barbell Denim

This product isn’t a hard good, but it’s still industrial designed. It is jeans that are created for athletic people. They tend to have larger thighs and calves, and these jeans account for that. It’s creative because it solves the problem of athletes not being able to fit into jeans because of their muscular bodies.

Nerdwax

Image

Image

This product is very simple but it solves a tremendous problem that most, if not all, glasses users have. It’s beeswax you put on your glasses and then you no longer have to worry about the glasses sliding off your face, or moving. It’s creative because it solves a problem that can sometimes be a nuisance to people’s lives.

Bulbing

Image

This product is simple as well, and is very playful and fun. It’s called bulbing. It’s an LED light system that only lights up with your attach the pre-made acrylic design to it. It’s creative because it’s playful and it doesn’t use as much energy as a normal light.

The Porthole 

Image

This product infuses oils, teas or alcohol together to creates a seamless blend of flavor. It’s creative because it’s a new way of looking at infusers, it’s simpler to clean, and it’s faster to infuse flavors.

These Worn Shoes Progress Report April 25th, 2014

My Creative Process:

This is it. The pieces have all come together, and I am producing my final video. I had to find a soundtrack, mesh it with the voice recording, and finally import all the photos so they made sense in a clip. It took over 2 hours to edit everything seemlessly. I uploaded it to youtube and made my powerpoint for my class presentation. This tedious process is over, and I couldn’t be happier.

Below are some screen shots of the work I did for the final

These Worn Shoes Progress Report April 23rd, 2014

Creative Process:

Viewing my project I thought that something was missing. I knew that I could give my object a personality through music, but I really wanted to give him a voice. So I gave him a literal voice. I made a script based on the scenes that I had played out. I decided upon a name by bouncing of ideas between my roommate and myself. We decided upon the name Bert, and the awkward, worn down shoes was born. This made me research music that would fit well with a name like Bert. I wanted him to be kinda unhappy, and be portrayed as a misfit.

Below is the a rough script I decided to use for my video. If you read through it, you’ll see that I wanted to give Bert a good ending, so the video wasn’t completely depressing.

These Worn Shoes Progress Report April 22nd, 2014

My Creative Process:

Today I decided  to shoot my final scenes. They surprisingly took the least amount of time to complete. I think because I have gotten use to the stop motion technique, I was able to create faster. I was able to conclude my short film as well as make a beginning so that the movie had some context. I took over 200 photos that made about 30 sec worth of content. Next is the fun part…editing.

Below are some photos from my shoot.

5 Creative Products, April 21st 2014

This week I am focusing on packaging again. 

Doritos packaging design

Image

This design is creative because it creates a new way to interact with Doritos. It has a cool geometric shape that relates back to Doritos triangle design.

McDonalds Packaging

Image

This packaging is creative because it promotes less waste and its in a more compact container for driving. It also allows you to eat your meals with one hand if needed. Overall, it creates ease and a simpler way to eat McDonalds.

Nike Air Packaging 

Image

This packaging is creative because it takes Nike Air shoes and puts it into another packaging besides cardboard. The air filled packaging makes the shoe look lighter and thus gets the point across that the shoe is lighter that air.

Orange Juice Packaging 

Image

This packaging is creative because it takes the playfulness of oranges and puts them into a orange-like packaging. It makes the user think that they are getting a more orange-like product, when the packaging is based off it.

Toothpaste packaging

Image

Tired of not using all your toothpaste. This re-design is creative because it’s a simple solution to using all your toothpaste.

These Worn Shoes Creative Process April 20th, 2014

My Creative Process:

I had a difficult time coming up with ideas for my shoes initial because I was thinking what do shoes actually do? How do they interact? What drives them. When I went to shoot my scenes, some of them were from my story board but others were from short burst of inspiration. I began to get more ideas for the way my shoes interacted by feeling them out. My process changed quite a bit because of the weather and the fact that it wasn’t consistent (sometimes windy, too sunny or not enough sun). I used the creative technique of going out into the field and actually changing my process based on the context. I plan to shoot again tomorrow, weather permitting. And hopefully my shoes won’t fall over every 5 sec (See pictures below).
