Design Brief

The design of this sketch, reflects the themes Movement and energy. It is one that represents the action of movement, where this design creates itself through the consumer s action of pressing keys to create a piece that demonstrates the their own movement and energy through this action. Collaborating a sense of movement demonstrating vibrancy, allowing each design to be unique and custom to the consumer. Being either minimal or maximised, the consumers can choose.


The design takes into accounts works from the art movement De Stijl , a style that is a composition of straight lines, intersecting plane surfaces, and geometrical figures, presented through primary and secondary colours. The inspiration which influenced this work is Piet Mondrian s peice, Composition A (1920) a piece that demonstrates the correlations between shapes and colour. A piece which can be seen, adapted and influenced within this design sketch. The choice of circle shapes reflects that of circular movements, reflecting the recycling of energy, whilst the squares presents destiny, meaning every moment has a destiny leading one point to the next. The lines ascending up the bottom left corner symbolises endurance, addressing how energy levels ascend from high to low and then cooling down to reach high again.


This design sketch is unique, as it allows every consumer to have a different final result, allowing how much energy and movement they compose in their own unique products. The colours reflect the main theme, where red symbolises fire and blood, two suppliers of energy, the blues present masculinlinty, and the purples are draws together the stability of the blues and the energy of red. Being presented on a black background, this allows for a more vibrant enhancment of the colours, presenting itself strongly and full of energy. The white lines present boldness and a division between movment and energy. The concept of the design is to allow consumers to both explore the reaction of maximum and minimum modes of movement and energy levels, whilst also exploring their own. Producing unique clothing and postcodes that feature original and unique designs every time.
