I had a hard time with this assignment in terms of representing the information clearly.. This is my second attempt. I looked at banana juice packaging from Japan, a rock garden in India by Nek Chand (made from post-industrial waste), a banana leaf plate, food aid packaging, vases by Hella Jongerius. I compared these products in terms of the following criteria: whether or not they are adaptable to different environments, their durability, if they have a negative impact on the environment, whether they are poetic in their form, the price, and lastly whether the use of materials is innovative. From this assignment, I began to realize what design criteria are important to me... Such as the product's impact on the environment, the poetics of the form, the price, and the durability.
