PRODUCT PROJECT OF THE WEEK

Buttonholed


Word up peeps we LOVE this. Always on the look out for crafty alternatives to everyday issues we spotted this hot product idea from Loony Design: a joint project of the Industrial Design degree course at the State Academy of the Fine Arts in Stuttgart and the Evangelical Charitable Mission in Baden.  This is a brilliant project where students from the Academy develop exclusive designs for everyday objects which are in turn produced by people with mental disorders living and working in centres run by the mission. This ABC Button is just one of a raft of fantastic objects and ideas.  Download your own free button font , order buttons online or follow a step by step instructional to create your very own message. So much more chic than cheap sharpie makers clumsily penned on clothing labels.
