  4. 4. wash wear carry so e wear & wash Product Identity & 1 of 12 Packaging Designs Title: Product Identity & Packaging Project Description: For this packaging problem, SOLE shoes asked for a design that was as “green” as their product. The solution was a multi-purpose folding tote that would house the shoes at point-of -purchase. Since washing your shoes extends the life of the shoes, the tote also serves as a container in which to wash the shoes. The tote conserves the use of plastic bags that are used to carry items home after purchase by providing the consumer with a handle for carrying. The tote may also be used as a hanging storage container for your closet, perfect for small spaces. Following the idea of simplicity, the SOLE icon and logo were designed to be as minimal as possible. The shape of the icon was created based on the curves suggested in leaves and water droplets. This particular typeface was chosen because the type characteristics are minimal and sleek. Circular icons were created to even further the understanding of the product with simple imagery. The colors of the logo and icons mimic the colors of the ground we walk on and the environment that surrounds us. School | Company | Organization: Purdue University (Spring 2009)

Consequence of Sound by: Regina Spektor My rhyme ain't good just yet, My brain and tongue just met, And they ain't friends, so far, My words don't travel far, They tangle in my hair, And tend to go nowhere, They grow right back inside, Right past my brain and eyes Into my stomach juice Where they don't serve much use, No healthy calories, Nutrition values. And I absorb back in The words right through my skin They sit there festering inside my bowels The consonants and vowels The consequence of sounds ..)
