We had to make packaging for our chindogu. I wanted the packaging to be something you can use for several purposes, and not just throw away. I wanted to make a shoebag for my Pompettes that works like a undercover drinking kit.
I redesigned an old hairdryer-bag I found at a flea market. This is the original bag:
After a lot of spraypaiting, cutting, sewing and painting, I qwas py about it. I also made a few extra thing to put in the bag, a book with two hidden shots, and two small boxes for painkillers. The only thing I mi9ss is a label or something (might add that later).
spraypaint, stencil, sewing, gluin’
We also had to edit our photos in Photoshop, and show a before and after editing picture. Here it is:
This week we had to choose a final “chindogu” product (see earlier posts).
Then we had to make a moodboard, a construction drawing and a poster of it in illustrator. I have chosen to work with an idea I call drinking-flask-shoes. Hollow platform shoes you can use to smuggle alcohol into bars and clubs, or to hide that you are drinking. Just go to the ladies room, and have a shot from your heel!
Haha, this is hillarious! We have a new assignment in school. We have to come up with a ” chindogu “, in short it is a ingenious everyday gadget that seem like an ideal solution to a particular problem, but really are quite useless.
We are going to make the shindogu, make a user-manual, package design, full identity (logo etc.), slogans and a stand where we present it.
