With this project I won the 1°Prize "HDK Give Away Product", and the University is now taking this product in production.
To design this small product has been both a really interesting and difficult task.
The goal was to design a product that was easy and cheap, but that could represent the HDK Gothenburg university as a whole. The latter requirement, in particular, took me a long reflection and deep research of what are the essential characteristics of HDK.
I began writing down all the words that I could connect to the school. Design, craft, abstract thinking, technical knowledge, and many others.
I divided all these concept-words into two groups. On one side I had all the “open-mind” good sides that HDK offer; deep researches, abstract ideas, and design thinking.
I decided to translate these words into a soft, circular, curved appearance. On the other side, I had all the technical knowledge; workshop technical skills and theoretical courses. I connected them with rationality so straightness and essentiality.
