A Clever Redesign of the Scotch Tape Dispenser

12 August 2022 @ 4:00 pm

"Why throw away paper packaging when it can be useful?" asks industrial designer Wyatt Coe, who came up with this concept:"The Scotch Flip dispenser packaging becomes the product itself. Effectively reducing cost and environmental impact, while reinforcing the creative roots of the brand."Coe produced this in Offsite's Real World Sketching class, led by Kelly Custer.

Unusual Tool: A Redesigned Fireman's Hose Clamp

12 August 2022 @ 2:00 pm

This unusual-looking tool is a fireman's hose clamp, also called a Wildland hose clamp, named for its first manufacturer (like "Crescent" wrench).It's used to pinch off the flow of a pressurized hose so that you can change nozzles, or replace the nozzle with a coupling so you can add an extension hose. Here's an example of how it's used (I've cued up the video below to the right moment):I'm not sure how long the tool has been around, but firefighting equipment manufacturer

Durable 3D-Printed Mold Inserts Drastically Cut Bottle Design Costs and Time

12 August 2022 @ 1:00 pm

During my days as a structural package designer, when designing a new bottle, the last step for our department was to produce the CAD drawing of a new design. Then it went over to Engineering, who would tweak our CAD to produce the tooling drawing. Then we were ready to "cut steel," i.e. have the molds made for the blow-molding machine. That last step took months, and cost five figures.That was in the '90s, and today you can have steel cut for a new bottle mold in about 4 weeks. However, Pepsi has figured out how to get that time down to just 48 hours, and with a cost savings of up to $10,000. It's staggering.The way they do it is by not cutting steel at all. Instead they use a universal mold shell, then they 3D-print an insert that goes inside the mold.

The Solar-Powered Beach Umbrella Wants to Make Summer Energy Use More Sustainable

11 August 2022 @ 4:00 pm

Summer is a big, prosperous time for seaside cities, but all that sudden activity and tourism can be a drain on resources. The pace and demands of summer put pressure on a city's energy grid, which can cause rolling blackouts and worsen air quality. Coastal Italians are intimately familiar with this struggle, and this year's record-breaking heat in Europe has only made the problem feel more urgent. Thankfully, resourceful designers and engineers are coming up with exciting solutions, like the solar-powered beach umbrella Parelio. This clever lawn accessory by CRA-Carlo Ratti Associati and the Italian dessert company Sammontana converts leisurely outdoor scenes into sustainable ener

Using Balloons to Suspend an Ultra-Long, Moving Pesticide Hose

11 August 2022 @ 3:00 pm

As Chinese news organization CGTN reports, creative farmers in Jiangsu Province have been using hydrogen-filled balloons to spray pesticides since at least 2018. The practice involves suspending a hose all the way across a paddy, with workers in vehicles on either side providing the forward motion. This obviates the need to leave clear tire lanes for a vehicle to drive through the field. Here's what it looks like:Below, this video clip from 2017 also shows the practice. You will be horrified, but perhaps not surprised, to see that the smiling worker holding the line has no respiratory protection at all:

Shockingly Convincing Plastic Lawn Alternatives

11 August 2022 @ 1:00 pm

Something I never had to deal with in the city: Mowing the lawn. Here on the farm I'm responsible for keeping multiple acres of grass cut. It's time-consuming, the machinery is eye-wateringly expensive and it's hard on the body; after just an hour on the zero-turn, my fingers are numb and tingly, like I've been using a palm sander all day.While I'd never consider this as an option, there are plastic lawn alternatives, and I'm surprised at how good they look in a residential setting. This company manufactures, sells and installs artificial turf that people have replaced their yards with.

Great Industrial Design Student Work: Finding an "Outlet" for Bone Waste

10 August 2022 @ 4:00 pm

Elos is a project by Souhaïb Ghanmi, in his final year as an industrial design student at Switzerland's ECAL. Ghanmi started by identifying a ready source of materials:"In the meat industry in Switzerland, there are more than 230,000 tonnes of waste each year from slaughterhouses. I am looking into the recycling of agro-food waste, in particular bones, which pollute by their disintegration, and thus use the maximum of the animal. Bone is, for me, a forgotten and untapped material despite its many properties.""Elos is a range of switches and sockets using bone meal for its electrical i

When to go with your assumptions vs. when to test (7 questions designers should ask)

3 August 2022 @ 10:00 am

Research and testing make designs better. You might have seen this play out first hand, by running your own tests before iterating on concepts or working with user researchers to design a new feature. You may have relied on user research to improve ease of use, reduce friction, and identify changes to include in your next design sprint. And that’s because user research leads to more efficient, informed design initiatives. But we have a secret. Sometimes…research isn’t always necessary. That doesn’t mean you should start going into every UX design project blindly, but there are times when you don’t need to dot every “i” and cross every “t”. As always, prioritization is critical. You know you don’t have endless time to test your designs. You need to assess what needs to be tested right now, what can wait, and what can move forward without testing. ✏️ Thanks to our friends at

Get inspired: Muted color palettes that speak volumes

28 July 2022 @ 7:00 am

Olivia Hoskin Olivia Hoskin Writer & Design Enthusiast Muted colors in design can help your audiences enjoy a new peace of mind that emanates from low saturation or chroma — just like the color palettes in this collection. Quite literally the “opposite of saturated” these designs are subtly elegant. As vivid colors of our past are slowly replaced with harmonious combinations of green, orange, beige, and other shades of “calm” we can enjoy feelings of safety, familiarity, and nurture. Muted color palettes bring a modern and genuine look and feel to any design project. Perfect for a conscious product or brand, muted colors can be added to anything from packaging t

5 ways to get your design work used across the organization

21 July 2022 @ 9:00 am

✏️ This article was written by Nate Holmes and sponsored by our friends at Widen, an Acquia company A lot goes into creative work. Sure, there’s the actual time a designer spends designing. But there’s also time spent concepting, aligning with business goals, gaining approval, and so much more. If the output ends up being a single-use design, it means you’re likely not getting as much out of your efforts as you could be. Using creative work in multiple ways accelerates workflows by giving teams access to approved, high-quality content. Finding ways to make your design work available for other teams to use, reuse, and repurpose creates endless opportunities to get more value from your creative investment. Using creative work in multiple ways reduces time spent on overlapping efforts, frees up designers to focus on more meaningful projects, and accelerates
