OUGD406 // Communication Is A Virus // Fieldcandy Tents

FieldCandy Tents

We came across this brand of tents called Fieldcandy. We really liked the way they was different and went around branding a tent. They use photographs on their tents to make them stand out and they harge well over the price of a regular tent. The classic look of their branding works really well with the small white box logo in the left hand side of the tent. 

Really like the style of the tents and how they go about promoting them. the photographs of the tents in context look amazing and would make anyone desire to have one...

I really like the layout of the website too, its sleek and classy. The triangle with the image in that fold out to images of the tent is a really good idea, and makes for this really proffesional slick deisign. 

The design is carried through the entire website and that is something that we will be looking to do when creating ours. Create a sleek branding that flows through the entire website and product range. 

OUGD406 // Communication Is A Virus // Juice Carton Research

As we are focussing more on the juice cartons i decided to research further into that, putting the focus on this...

We needed to learn how to make them, so i looked at some tutorials for different versions online...

For A Wallet with Lid

Step 1 - disasemble

Step 2 - cut along the dotted lines and cut the bottom off, so you have this shape.

Step 3 - Mark off where the side pleats are going to be. 

Step 4 - Fold Them in a consitina fashion. 

Step 5 - Take the font part you cut off. Cut it to around 4 inches. fold in the middle with a 1 cm gap (2 Folds)

Step 6 - Glue the side parts and stick them to the part youve just made like so. 

Step 7 - Mark the hole where the part comes down to the lid and cut that out. 

TA-DA! screw the lid on to fasten it!

For a Regular Carton. Wallet Sticks with button or velcro

Step 1 - Flatten carton and cut off the ends.

Step 2  - divide into tree parts using a ruler and pencil.

Step 3  - On the first one-third of the juice carton, cut up the juice carton's sides and back. You have a strip which will close the coin purse.

To obtain the extendible gussets, fold inside the juice carton's sides.

Step 4 - Fold into three parts.

Step 5 - Line with electrical tape.

Step 6. - Put abit of velcro, press stud or button tie on there to fasten. 

Tetrapack (milk carton) Wallet 

Step 1 - Flatten and cut out like so. 

Step 2 - Fold in half and cut the slits in to hold credit cards here. 

Step 3 - Cut off the bottom flaps so it looks like this. 

Step 4 

Fold the front pockets up to the finished position, to form two inside pockets and a long section for notes. [see first and second pictures]

The flaps with diagonal cut will need to be folded under the long seam flap in the note section. You may need to bend the wallet slightly to make this happen. [see picture three]

Some edges may also need to be trimmed so that the wallet can fold easier. When doing this only cut about 1mm at a time so that you do not cut too much off. Re crease the wallet in finished state to make it flatter.

Fold the wallet into the closed position. 


OUGD406 // Communication is a Virus // Wallet Research

I decided i was going to look into wallet research. We need to learn how to make the different kind of wallets before we go any further into the design stages. After all, we want to try and brand and sell them!

General Recycled Accesories made from food packaging

I decided to just google search some recycled accessories to give me a better understanding of what is out there...

What is a line? // Research

i have been looking into some collage work for research of my what is a line brief...

Chad Kouri -

I like the idea of combing photographs of people with colours and shapes to create these contemporary collages. I think this will work well with the subject of hats i am working with.

Again, layering mainly black and white images onto lines, type, colours and shapes. Really nice work.

Ashkan Honavar  -

More experimental collage artist. Not the direct route i want to go down but stunning work non the less. Definitely and influence in what i want to do.
