Here I am! finally being able to publish this great video from the judges talking about my design… I literally get the goose skin every time I watch it and I think I can’t watch it enough! I’m happy to finally share it!
Well giving it a little more background, I got into the Future Bottle Design Challenge for Heineken, and I was supposed to design half a bottle that would depict how we will be connected in 140 years… So I did; driven by the thought that by that time either through communication, media, transportation or technology, we will be constantly connected and those ties will be intangible, we just will know it and feel it. Thinking so, I am certain that once again we will become a one solid world as we were millions of years ago with Pangea. Besides, because trends say so and everyday we have more examples that make it clear that it is not enough to think local but global.
So….. once I was happy with my design I uploaded it and then I had to match it with other half made by other designer somewhere in the world. And I did match it with some and some matched theirs with mine, but there was one that I felt really complemented mine, better yet mine complemented his. This was Lee Dunford’s design from Sidney. I felt that with this one the design was complete, mine having the world and how we will connect and his covering the space and universe. It could not be more perfect. Besides he made it with 140 stars and the middle one was red which to me looked like it was mine from a far sight (kind of like a zoom from space to earth).
We made it through to the final 100 and then to the final 3 so I couldn’t be happier (well of course I can if I get to win lol)
So here is the video with Lee’s and my design. Hope you like it as much as I did!
