Experimenting with Materials
For my fourth year thesis I chose to combine both my passions, design and soccer. My goal was to push kit design, using both material and design. Current football/soccer kits are mundane, with the only difference between teams being the pattern printed on the shirt. All teams are stuck wearing the same material. My goal was to create 12 new kits experimenting with materials and patterns. I compiled these 12 kits into an editorial lookbook with each jersey having 4 spreads (8 pages) each. Each has a materials list, team history and design rationale. This book is printed at 12 inches by 12 inches, with it being available for purchase via Blurb.
Dog Leash Packaging
Tasked to design a “look-alike” and/or self-contained package with movable, functional parts/components. Each student will explore and experiment the construction of different types of paper containers as well as concept development. All students will be required to work on and aim to improve their thinking, sketch concept drawings skills and presentation in pencil or marker. Besides sustainability, students are encouraged to consider/include accessibility in their projects for the physically challenged.
