Think differently is easy to say, but hard to execute, especially in design industry, so many creative ideas came out from different designers everyday, and trying to survive is so not easy. Sometimes maybe when you came out of an idea that you are very pleased, but then found out somebody else has already made a garment exactly like it. Sucks ain’t it? That’s why we always need to research about things
Making an easy example, how do you think of pockets around your neck? of course it can’t carry heavy stuff, but for travellers, it can help devide your passport, personal ID, business card, money ect into different pockets, with different colour it’s simple enough to remember which is in which. Also I don’t think anyone is bold enough to put their hands around your neck and trying to steal anything from it.
I did think differently when designing this project, because at first I didnt even focus on any area that’s around the neck, it’s a picutre about T-shirt with holes makes me thinking, maybe pockets can replace those holes and actually make some uses to it. To think differently, I think I should put myself in a different situation first, like going out and play, maybe the idea will came out when I’m playing basketball or tennis, maybe the design will pop out when I trying to find a good TV show at home, you’ll never know this.
I will be very honored to have your feedback, thx a lot 🙂
