This week I will focus on backpack design

Pangoline Backpack

Image

Inspired from the pangolin animal, comes this recycled tire backpack. It’s creative because more people just use tires to make their cars move. This designer thought why not combine two unlike things, to create this very practical thing, a backpack.

Seat and Cooler Backpack

Image

Picture this, you’re a parent, with two-three kids and you go to one of their soccer games. With that you have to bring snacks, water bottles, medicine, etc. Why not have a backpack that can carry all of that and also serve as a seat for your aching parental back. This is the creative product for you.

Meiosis Back Pack

This backpack is creative because id doesn’t involve zippers and it doesn’t look like the conventional backpack. It’s sleek yet ridged for your support.

Cork Board Backpack

This backpack isn’t made from the normal vinyl or cotton that normal backpacks are made from. It’s made from cork board. I’t creative because the creator when out at made a backpack from unconventional materials. Sometimes creativity is just in using a different substance than normal.

The Flip Backpack

This backpack is great for those who are anal about things. There’s an organization place for everything and it is in a tight, simple packaging. This is creative because it just makes the backpack even easier to use. Even though this is only a concept, I’m sure it can be put into production someday.

Process of the Day: These Worn Shoes March 30th, 2014

Creative Process:

In order to begin my process as a whole, I had to learn the software I set out to learn. I watched different youtube tutorials and finally came a great one.

What I did:

I decided i’d work on learning the Adobe Premier Pro software, before I began shooting any footage. I was looking up some videos and came across this one:

This week will focus on musical instruments because I’m finding inspiration for a studio project.

 

Cell Guitar

Image

This car lets the user customize their sound with interlocking cells. It is creative because one can use it to make the noise that works best for them; they don’t have to use the set five strings that normal guitars have.

The Dube

Image

It’s next generation of bongo drums. It’s creative because, instead of only having one option for the sound, the dube can be played on multiple sides. It’s great for jamming out and playing with friends.

Dualo 

Image

It’s a new instrumental keyboard. It lights up as you play it and actually helps the user compose and play music.

The Kitar

Image

This guitar is creative because it is interchangeable. It adjust to the needs of the user and has different sound settings. It is also lightweight and easy to build upon.

The Curvy Keyboard 

Image

This keyboard is a different shape from most. I think that’s what makes it  creative. It creates a new way of looking at and playing on a keyboard. The form is ergonomic so you don’t need a huge space to use it.

This week I wanted to focus on 5 creative camera designs/concepts. It will get me in the mood to film my final project.

Canon Snap

Image

This design, by David Münscher, creates a new perspective for a camera. It’s on the ring of your finger and you just take it with a quick flick of the thumb. It’s creative because it gets rid of the bulkiness of the regular camera, and slims it down to almost nothing to create small camera.

Flying Stick Camera

Image

This camera is for those who like to see things from a bird’s-eye-view. It works by the kinetic energy from twirling it around with your hands. It’s creative because it’s another way that the camera can be used, it doesn’t always have to be a point-and-shoot.

Flip up Camera

Image

This camera is creative because it makes every image you take into a possible, framable picture. No need to print the photos or even buy a frame. All you need is the Samsung SS700 by Jin Woo Han.

Panoramic Camera

Image

Sick of using your Iphone to take Panoramic photos. Look no further than the Panoramic Digital Camera, developed by Hye-Jeong Yang. It’s creative because it can capture everything from your vacation and string it together into one continuous picture.

USB Camera

Image

This is the camera I want. The camera is it’s own memory card. All you have to do is click, load, and then see it on any monitor. It’s creatively simple!

Sip Snap

I feel like I review a lot of kids products, but here’s another one. This is the Sip Snap cover. It’s made for any cup so kids don’t have to use their specific sippy cup. These covers help transition kids into ‘grown up’ cups. It’s creative because it’s not just at top for one cup, it’s a top for many cups and it’s made for the potential disorganized parent.

The Glyph

This is a device that changes the way we listen to music and watch screens. It’s creative because it merges the screen watching with headphones. This device makes it so you can just move the top part of it down and you will instantly be put in this virtual reality system.

Animation Dock

When I was younger, I wanted to become an animator. In order to see what it was like, I went to an animation summer camp where they practiced old animation techniques. I was really turned off to the fact that you had to draw something over and over again on this stationary desk. This tablet extension gets rid of that stationary desk. It is eco-friendly because you aren’t using paper to create your hundreds of iterations to make an animation. It’s creative because there’s not anything like it on the market, it’s portable and it gives a new way to do animation.

PebbleBee

I have been looking for something like this for forever! It’s a tracking device that connects your potential lost object  to your smartphone. You use one pebble and put it on something you think you could lose i.e. a remote, keys, etc..Then you sync the other pebble to your phone. It’s creative because the creators found an affordable way to make a tracking device that is easy to place and easy to use.

NYC Spagetti Packaging

I love this packaging because it’s a different view on how spaghetti packaging should be. It’s creative because once the spaghetti goes out of the packaging it because the iconic New York building. It doesn’t pay as much attention to eh form as much as it does to the inside of the packaging, which I find intriguing.

Instaglasses

These  glasses take the user through a new experience. They use instagram filters and make it so you can see the world in a different way. They are creative because they create something new from something that is pre-existing.

The Invisible Shoe

This design is creative because it’s a shoe that can change your experience with shoes. Instead of just being for walking, these are used to maybe start up a conversation of change the way someone sees shoes.

Without Shoe Plate

This shoe is creative because it remove the stigma that shoes have to have a frame. It conforms around the users foot to create a more comfortable experience.

Flat Pack Shoes 

These are creative because they change the original shoe to be more assessable and able to be stored better. The design could be a little better but overall, it’s a good design.

Thermal Shoe Laces

I’ve definitely been in situations where my shoes are too hot or too cold. This design is creative because it solves the problem or temperature in shoes. The thermal shoe laces can be attached to almost any shoe and be plugged in to adjust heat.
