The Goose

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.

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.

What I did:

This week will focus on innovative packaging for certain products

This packaging is creative because it gets rid of wasteful large plastic bottles and replaces it with a smaller replaceable packaging. It also lets the user interact with the cleaning process.

The New Clorox Bottles

This packaging is creative because it allowed the company to use their same product, but be able to market it better. Instead of the straw to the spray bottle going straight down, it curves to the form of the bottle so it’s able to get every last drop. It’s just a simple thing that saves product and creates incentive for consumers to buy her product.

March 31st, 5 Creative Things

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.

Link: Cool 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

Image

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

Image

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.

The Curvy Keyboard

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.
