Staff Picks of the Week: April 14, 2017
If there's one thing we appreciate above all else it's process. We don't mean process in a broad sense, but rather the presentation of the design process. Often times we see amazing projects on Coroflot but the designer only posts the final product. For anyone in the design community and even those of you who aren't, there is something special about seeing the whole process from concept and ideation to completion. People enjoy getting a full picture of the designer's creativity and methodology, and most of our top picks for this week present exactly that.
Sure, it might be a bit of a novelty to have a bottle opener on the bottom of your flip flop and could either make you the coolest or weirdest person at the party. Nonetheless, you have to hand it to Reef and designer Jeff Boster for this collection of weird and creative flip flops. We especially dig the grass ones.
Besides the fact that these backpacks are super cool looking, what we really love is how thorough and insightful Michael's process is. For this project Michael walks us through every step of the design, culminating with some high-quality professional product photography.
Here's another case of complete process presented in an eloquent and professional manner. Sol delivers a full package of branding, but the part that really stands out for us is her excellent iconography work, which is clean, colorful and fun.
With our inaugural Sketch Jam event just around the corner, all of us here at Coroflot have been a little sketch-crazy as of late. Jimmie is a pro when it comes to product design sketching. Based on his Coroflot portfolio, it's clear that cars and watches are his forte, and for this sketching exercise he masterfully combines both.
It wouldn't be accurate to call Tao's work historical restoration, but he does take from that idea to provide a precise redesign of an ancient artifact he found at an antique shop. Tao's delicate work respects the original pattern while simultaneously modernizing the paper note size.
