37 Celsius-98.6 Fahrenheit

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!

awesome both ideas are great!!!

Color version please, this is beyond a print for you dude!

I can't wait for people to be able to tell the temperature by how much/little my hoodie is zipped up.

The red zipper wouldn't make any sense unless the design is flipped upside down as well.

how come nobody has pointed out that it's upside down? hot should be at the top...

Because most people understand it's just an idea based on the interpretation of a thermometer, not a literal one.

Disgruntled_Pacifist

Brilliant, one flaw that I see is that as a Canadian our thermometres must go down to at least -50°C, that could have been indicated around the hood of the sweater, as in if the hood is over the head and pulled closed over the face it's waaaaaaaaaay to f'n cold to be wearing just a hoody ☻ (of course I'm kidding this design has no flaws other than the classic version)

evan3
evan3 profile pic Alumni

okay this design confuses me it seems you have it backwards--the numbers are descending as the zip goes up here is a picture of a thermometer but then i thought maybe it is supposed to be that way hmm also is it UV? or just two versions?

GreenRabbit

evan3, skim through the comments and you'll get it.

agrimony
agrimony profile pic Alumni

obviously because hoodies are worn when its cold, not hot.

anyway.

proint!
