Laser Challenge #11: Plant Scaffolding

(5 years ago)
This post is part of the NOTlabs Laser Challenge: 30 days, 30 experiments! The ground rules are: for 30 days, Shawn and I are alternating days with executing and sharing a Laser Cutter involved experiment! And most importantly - we’re supposed to have fun, explore ideas, and it’s less about a fully formed product/concept at the end of the day, but more about seeing where the experiment takes us!For #11, Shawn decided to start saving our beans in progress… that were starting to grow and flop a bit. In order to make the garden a bit more fun, he prototyped an idea for modular plant scaffolding ~ in wood, since scraps were around ~ but we were imagining doing different ones in plastic or coated wood/metal ~ and we are also imagining larger ones for our tomatoes! Basically they slot together and have zip ties to strengthen the set up… and you can build up up and away in any way you want (or in the way your plants want to go)! Take a peek at the making of and details on the next page…p.s. If you have ideas, or want some laser cutting done, or want to play with us… feel free to use the contact form or leave a comment! And if you’re curious about the laser cutter we’re using, here’s the unboxing.TO PAGE 2 of "Laser Challenge #11: Plant Scaffolding"! -----> (Want more visual goodness? See NOTCOT.com + NOTCOT.org)

Student Spotlight: Good Ideas x Self Promotion

(5 years ago)
"This was a project about how you can promote yourself as a graphic designer. I think good ideas are one of the most important tools you as a designer can use, so I wanted to promote myself with that idea in mind. Light bulb is something that is related to good ideas, that’s why I choose to use a light bulb as a metaphor for my ideas and myself. I love package design so I chose to package the light bulb in a simple but elegant package design. I also wanted to showcase where I’m from in the design. And since I’m from Norway (Scandinavia) I grew up around simple and elegant design, which Scandinavian design is known for. So I tried to represent that trough my design."

Sesame Street Gets Global Refresh

(5 years ago)
Parham Santana, The Brand Extension Agency, collaborated with Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit organization behind Sesame Street, to refresh its licensed consumer products packaging worldwide. Parham Santana discovered a key insight that drove the redesign: It’s the instant, emotional connections to the characters that play out daily across countries, cultures and channels that make the brand so powerful. Whether it’s Big Bird or Cookie Monster, the Sesame Street Muppets instantly make connections with people. This essential truth guided the development of new unified packaging designs that make Sesame Street characters the stars at every brand touch point.

Altavins

(5 years ago)
The Terra Alta region has experienced the passage of numerous cultures. Ilercavònia, Almodí and Domus Pensi are small discoveries, vestiges of the presence of these cultures in our land that have left their mark on how we work and how we cultivate the vine. Typographically, the labels reflect this concept, and the logo with an upturned letter ‘A’ giving shape to a logotype that reinforces the duality of Alta Vins.
