DESIGN BRIEF + INSPIRATION

 

 

playful - cheerful, comical, lively, whimsical, light-hearted, good-natured

 

Playfulness is integral to the most enjoyable aspects of life. It accompanies the youthful spirit and the learning process. As one ages, playfulness becomes nonsensical, seemingly a waste of time in the serious world we find ourselves. However, it is only disguised with an "adult" name - leisure.

 

 

COLOR - primary, shiny, vibrant, energetic

 

 

FORM - soft, gestural, rounded, edgeless

 

 

IDEATION

 

 

Ideation began with form sketches that were based on the initial research.

 

Upward gestures and a sprouting element gave the form an inviting and energetic nature. These elements lent the clock to being upbeat and positively inspiring.

 

Foam sketches attempted to realize this energy in a physical way. This part of the process was messy. Often times a loose hand can lead to a great discovery.
