This is a successful advertisement! Most of the people eat breakfast everyday, and sometimes they haave no

idea what are they going to have for tomorrow’s breakfast, at least it’s a problem for me. Everyday after waking

up, the first thing comes out of my head is ” what can I eat this morning?”  Therefore, this advertisement gives

people some advice  that what can people eat at that  time, and an important thing is people come and buy the food. The indicator is

also McDonald’s sign which makes this ad more interesting and provides people good moods at the beginig of the day.

Sweet Social Seating!

I love this chair! The colour is conspicuous, the shape is morden, and the chairs are functional. It’s a good place to rest,  to read, and to do your stuff. Some museum do not have many seats, so after people walking for a while, they have no place to take a rest, so it’s smart to put this amazing chair in the museum. It also presents creativity, esthetics, and art which have the same ambiane as museum.

Timed Ring

This is a very cool design. Combining watch and ring together so that people do not need to wear watches!

Almost every one has cell phones now, so many people check the time on their phones; they don’t wear watches anymore;

however, people don’t need to take out their phonesthis because this timed ring already has this function. Some of mine considerations

are  the material, shape, and charge. The gray metal one is fine, but the white one looks like plastic; it loses some value and quality;

for me, the shape is more masculine although it has white colour. I might look like the Iron Man after wearing it.

Another consideration is how to charge the ring, and is it waterproof?

Honeycomb chairs

In my Design Methods and Materials’ class, I had to do a street furniture, so I was wondering to design a chair. First I had some ideas:

DSC_0884 The blue with brown one is a honeycomb chairs which can be moved separately; the one under it is a pillar with four chairs around four sides, and each chair can be extended to three chairs, so it can fit more people, and the umbrella above the pillar is to keep the rain off; the one on the right hand side is also a chair which has a bird nest as a huge light and decoration. The pillar is octagonal, so except the four original chairs, the other four can be pulled out from the pillar to extend the chair.

DSC_0885 DSC_0886 This is a bench with two human figures; the main idea is to make this street furniture more lively and interesting. The same concept as the previous one, the umbrella is to keep the rain off, but inside the umbrella, there is a light to provide brightness at night.

Then I fond some inspirations:

Dimensions 10.75”W x 10.75”H x 3.75”D 390c1e43cc7b8d4bffbff3c642e55ef9 honeycomb-modular-furniture-system-by-nydadesign2 honeycomb-modular-furniture-system-by-nydadesign3 honeycomb-modular-furniture-system-by-nydadesign6

Here is my model, it’s 1:15.

This honeycomb chair can be divided into individual chairs and group chairs; both of them can be opened, so people can put their stuff in them, and the individual chairs can also be pulled up as tables. The reason to chose honeycomb shape is because it’s organic and natural, and I would like it be placed in parks, so there is a demonstration underneath.

A bag for substitute teacher

The key considerations are the materials, the size, the
comfort, the functionalities and users’ needs. The key challenges are how to
find the ideal materials, how much do I know about these materials, and do the
ideal materials I find conform to users’ expectation.

There are some ispirations

Concept and Design:

For substitute teachers, they need a big, solid bag which can put the textbooks, teaching materials and their personal objects, so here is my concept. I would like to design a tote bag which is 50cm length, 20cm width and 35cm height; beside the bag, there are two small open bags that can put pens and an umbrella. Teachers need pens to mark and comment on students’ works, so it will be convenient for them to take the pens; when it is raining, people always need to open and close umbrellas frequently, so a small bag beside the tote bag is also convenient to place. Opening the tote bag with a zipper, there are three small bags on one side, and another secret bag on the other side. Substitute teachers who take transportation can put their bus tickets in the small bags, so they do not need to find them within much stuff. For another two small bags, they can put keys or cell phones which might be taken many times a day. Inside the middle of the bag, there is a divider which is also a bag with zipper. This bag divides the tote bag into two parts; therefore, substitute teachers can separate different kinds of objects, and they can put their personal stuff into this bag because people can not steal thing easily from it. The straps should be soft and comfortable; I would like to put something like sponge or thick fabric into straps, so they will not rub the shoulders painfully. The length of straps is 30cm, and the stitches should be thick and strong enough to hold the whole bag. At the back of the tote bag, there is also a secret bag with zipper. The material I chose for this bag is leather because leather is waterproof, and I want more straight and solid leather to support the weight especially at the bottom, so the heavy stuff will not hang down. There are several kinds of leather I consider to use such as Russia leather, Belting leather or Bycast leather. Russia leather is hard-wearing, flexible and resistant to water; Belting leather is thick, firm and smooth; Bycast leather has a much more consistent texture, and it is easier to clean and maintain.

Here is my design
