NDA - Project at Handmade

2020
Semester B

During the project at the company Handmade I worked on a concept for space travelers. At the beginning of the project I learned a lot about how they structured a design process and how different steps can be documented in a structured and coherent way. Handmade was a new type of environment and type of company than I had experienced before. I has shown me that by working with different companies as clients they get to influence innovation within those companies. This shows me that it is possible to have a horizontal impact across the creative industry.The project allowed me to create very expressive textiles, yet the focus was mostly on the visual and motion design of the textiles. A big learning point in this project was to be as iterative with designing the technology as I am with fabrication and designing the textiles. This is something I have tried to incorporate during my FMP.

Below you can find an impression of the different explorations we carried out. The aim of these exploration was to discover what technologies, shapes and colours could be used best to show different emotions.

The final design was the fully functioning prototype.
