“Normcore” by Designer Christian Heikoop

normcore9

Dutch designer Christian Heikoop playfully explores the “Normcore” fashion trend in which people consciously choose not to distinguish themselves. Intersecting fashion and design, Heikoop’s project imagines the future of “Normcore” based on a few of its basic tenants: 1. “Raggedness” (secluding one’s body from view), 2. “Anonymity” (keeping to one’s self and dressing inconspicuously) and 3. “All-in-one” (limiting the options by which one distinguishes him/herself). See more images below!

Studio Spotlight: HAWRAF

hawraf-clock

HAWRAF is a newly-formed studio whose members (Andrew Herzog, Carly Ayres, Pedro Sanches, and Nicky Tesla) all met while working on that Google Creative Lab site I loved so much.

One aspect of the studio’s focus is accessibility and specifically creating work that involves learning in public space. For their first project as a studio, they’ll be responding to 26 briefs in 26 hours, and the entire thing will be livestreamed so anyone can follow along.

If you’re interested in watching a creative studio figure out their own process you should bookmark the staging site for their project A-Z (az.hawraf.com) which will become a live feed on November 15th.
