Falling in love with design on a friday!

Friday, 18 June 2010
Falling in love with Design is not something I do everyday anymore. when I was young and naive I found many interesting and inspiring things all around me.

The sad thing about being educated in your field (especially when it comes to creativity) is the fact that you often get caught and lost between what you are taught, what you are told is 'good design', and what your personal opinion is.

What i found below is however is a mixture off all the above! Great design with purpose and that "Ah Ha!" moment is often hard to find. I fount it today on Relogic.

"An empty glass resembles a meaningless colorful mosaic, until a liquid is poured into it, revealing its name.

Each side of the glass is reserved for a specific drink. The Dekrypt glass though complex in appearance in fact runs on a very simple idea. Differently colored shapes are scattered across the glass surface in a seemingly random pattern, however their position is hardly accidental.

The true purpose of the glass mosaic is revealed when colored liquid is poured into it (orange juice, milk, coffee or coke) The pattern of shapes and empty spaces on the glass combined with the color of the liquid inside the glass end up forming a textual sign, revealing what exact drink or refreshment you are having, with each side of the glass reserved for a specific drink.

Besides being a novelty item with entertainment value it can also serve as a marketing item for beverage companies as it has a promotional potential."


PS. You can still fall in love with design...
