    • brand identity ALLURE tape dispenser Through a process-centered design methodology, I designed a tape dispenser that represents the Victoria’s Secret brand. From research and analysis of the brand identity, emotional language, and their target user group, I developed tape dispenser concepts and forms through 2D sketching and building 3D sketch models. I reached my final design solution through form refinement and then development of a final prototype tape dispenser model that sucessfully conveys the emotional language and feminine identity of the Victoria’s Secret brand.victoria’s secret
