About the design
on June 26, 2010
This is my concept for the Loves Zip up hoodies competition. I wanted to stay away from the image-splitting solution so the inspiration for this design was the actual function of the hoodie itself as a temperature regulator while adding the zip up feature as a "gauge" of sorts. Like a manual mercury bar.
The idea is to mimic a thermometer, zipping up or down to whatever degree of temperature to create a silly but amusing interaction between the garment and the owner.
The tee version could have the actual mercury bar going up to 98.6 degrees fahrenheit/ 37 celsius, to suggest normal human temperature.
I've submitted 2 versions, a simple 1 color example for those who prefer simpler designs and a colored version with some simple (yet exaggerated) graphic icons to give the design some life.
Zip up a notch if it's too cold, zip one down if it's too hawt!
