Social implications and values on product design [Max Yogoro]

Social implications and values on product design

Hi, everyone!
Yesterday I was awarded a prize on a design contest here in Italy.
For all who supported this victory, my gratitude!!!

Dotty was a proposition for the design contest ‘Say it with Glass’ by Verallia[part of Saint-Gobain group]… looking for product innovation.

Leveraging on existing production processes, Dotty has two grids [one on each side] of small dots [some engraved, some embossed].
Its concept is to communicate through sight and touch.

On one side, icons.
On the other, braille language
[telling what is inside, like honey, cherry jam and chocolate]

It cares about blind people and stands for the value that we all need to take care of each other.

Check some photos and, if you like it, share it!

À procura do design excelente [1/2]: Princípios de Design

‍Projetar produtos, serviços, estratégias e organizações é um processo de escolhas. Um bom design vem de boas escolhas. Escolher com sabedoria, portanto, é uma questão central.
