PLATONG DI PANGKAIN : FROM BAG JUG TO BUG JUG

after sooooooooooooooooo looooooooooong... yay for this blog update! :)

enough of fashion posts first. aside from the fact that i don't have a good cam to take my outfit shots with plus i don't exactly have a photographer yet, i am now updating my blog with my plates :>

just a little info:

I'm a BS Industrial Design student of Mapua Institute of Technology (the one found in Intramuros, Manila). some if you're wondering why I have plates, that's the answer.

and also let me define INDUSTRIAL DESIGN for you guys,
we, ID students, focus on PRODUCT DESIGN.
WE ARE NOT INTERIOR DESIGNERS NOR ARCHITECTS.
NOT FINE ARTS STUDENTS NOR MULTIMEDIA ARTS AND SCIENCES STUDENTS, OKAY? :)
we design different kinds of products for the masses. that's it. plain and simple :)

so anyways, this plate is from my Design Fundamentals class. this is the first plate assigned to us and we were asked to design an ORAL REHYDRATING GADGET. :)



so the first few (haha) pictures are actually that of my first design for our oral rehydration gadget (made from bristol boards). i actually first thought of a bag with somewhat water containers attached to it as a design, but then my professor said it was too bulky and so...



i didn't want everything to go to waste and so i recycled one of the water containers attached to my Bag Jug and turned it to this. :)
it had no name yet, but it already looked like a BUG which is very timely coz I have another bug inspired plate in my other class (will be my next post).
this is again made from bristol boards.

and after a few revisions....

taadaaaaaa! hahaha :))) final model of my oral rehydrating gadget which i baptized as BUG JUG (available in different bugs!) it was supposed to actually look like a bug and i was supposed to make my model look like one but then i didn't have enough time. score: 68 / 100 passing: 75 yeah, I FAILED just like most of my classmates which SUCKS, but that's life! better luck next time...

and of course, my room looked like shit all throughout the process.
DON'T WORRY, I CLEANED IT UP ALREADY! :P
