I discussed about the theme with my tutor. The first theme we came out was “spare time and relaxation” which was broad. I was thinking maybe I can narrow it down a little bit, like Indoor and Outdoor.  

I changed my mind at night. When I went through all my sketchbooks, I found out I did all the project always thinking about how functional my design would be. I always forgot the appearance of these products was also really important. I also very interested in emotional design. For example, I liked a product called Ink Calendar designed by Oscar Diaz, which is really interesting. These kinds of products they can give people pleasure, make people happy. I wanted to challenge myself in this project to try some emotional design.
