I sketched different packaging methods for fruits, I found the first method very interesting because not only was it protective, it is also pretty and imparts a delicate quality to the figs.

I also photographed some methods of food packaging to explore the different wats fruit could be packaged:

Food Hugger

I love this design because of how natural it feels. It is resourceful beause it protects cut fruit, but I also relate this to avocados and their seeds; such that it feels perfectly normal and natural to store fruits in food huggers. The vibrant colours match well with the fruits, and the plate-like shape of the huggers allows them to e used in a wide range of eating contexts (dinners, snacks, picnics, etc).

Sky Planter

This design elevates the plants in an interesting way. It is a lot of fun to see plants hanging upside down.

SECONDARY RESEARCH

Buckminster Fuller

Buckminster Fuller invented the Geodesic Dome. I love the shape because of how pretty it is (which could be because of the symmetry and its resemblance to a sphere, but with facets). I want to make a structure using this shape.

I love these designs because of their futuristic, science-fiction feel. This is because of the body-hugging shape of the piece, along with the combination of transparent and cream- coloured material being used.

I like these designs because they influence some part of the face, they warp it and change it, which is something I want to incorporate into my design.

SECONDARY RESEARCH

I explored different designers' work and chose works that appealed to me personally:

These works appealed to me because of their dynamic nature. The contrast between the bright light and pitch black background, along with the strong shapes, give the pieces a lot of movement.

I love the geometric nature of these designs, especially the piece by Arnold Goron.

The use of Fibreoptic Cables in these pieces is very intriguing and innovative. They give the shoes a very elegant, yet powerful feel, which I believe arises from the thin, bendable nature of these cables, which almost makes them seem like hair, which is often considered luxurious when maintained well.

These designs appeal to me because of their earthy feel. The first one reminds me of a plant, growing on a stem, especially akin to a pitcher plant. The second one has a warm feeling, because of the curled up shape of the lamp. It reminds me of a foetus, or a small puppy or child curled up and sleeping, which evokes a feeling of warmth.

I love how dymanic these designs are. In the black background, the bright light makes the design even more prominent.

James Turrel has done very interesting work. I love how striking it is, and the stark colours and shapes he uses in his work. I wasnt to incorporate that into my design. I especially feel that this could work as a setting for my product.
