part 1 product and design

fishcake introduces wanted [product] design by hawaii designers.
there is no question that hawaii’s design community has begun to speak on behalf of its own building energy. as a lover of things beautiful and innovative, produced thoughtfully (and with some quirk), fishcake aims to catalyze this movement and asks designers to inspire us with an individual product design.

everyday objects, when reimagined, suddenly have the power to engage ideas and issues beyond the product itself. the best product is one that addresses a need, and a desire. it embraces experimentation and packages complexities in an expressive way that expands beyond the physical object and into our experience.

we’re fortunate to witness collaboration spanning genres of art, craft, and design. there are no rules regarding medium. but we ask that you consider issues of mobility, sustainability, commodification and production (to name a few). and there are no answers! maybe a few questions. narrate your product: what did you observe? how did the idea for your product come about? what are you trying to communicate?  

part 2 design and production

wanted [product] design also serves as a platform to see our favorite hawaii-based products materialize and (mini) multiply. the idea and designer that flies receives a seat at JumpSchool for mentorship + product development.

questions + concerns + praises or ideas?

  1. hi guys - love this! i'm a little late in seeing this, but we'll put up our design ideas for products when we get them. Also - could you tell us more about JumpSchool? I'm starting an after school pilot program for the students at Iolani's Sullivan center. maybe we can collaborate!


what about us..
