Post B Caddy Design Reflection

Our team in the design of this project, the use of each person’s expertise to design the caddy design. Our team mixes product design, fashion design and design of visual communication. Different design disciplines have different understanding of organic waste solutions. Everyone according to their own strengths and division of labor, effective to the distribution of various work. At the same time, our group is a combination of international students and local students. From different countries, the mode of thinking is also slightly different. So we focus on teaching video and paper poster design, so that the audience can give a more intuitive visual experience. As our video time is relatively long, you can add some interesting things or voice to attract the reader’s attention.

Designers can use the design more intuitive and concise design works. One of the design of visual communication can be intuitive use of visual effects to convey their views, so that the theme and the concept of more clear. Designers can use less material and resources to achieve its greatest value.

The “sandbags” covering it are filled with lunar dust and provide some radiation protection. Inside are living quarters, exercise facilities, laboratories, and a hydroponic garden for growing food, replenishing oxygen, and recycling water.”)

Wealth From Waste

People waste food every day, and about 20 percent of food is wasted in Australia. “Leichhardt Council estimates that about 40 per cent of the waste from its household garbage bins is food.”(Frew 2014) We need to reconsider how we grow, pack, transport, sell and consume food.

one day

Breakfast: Sushi and water. I get breakfast in a sushi shop. The sushi has lots of energy. Sushi has some organic food. However, the less rice will waste.

Lunch: Rice, fish and vegetable. I get this luch from a chinease resturant. Some vegetables and fish will waste.

Snack: Chicken and coffee/milk tea. The packaging will throw in garbage bin.

Herriman says one of the surprising things she discovered was that in Australia, most food is wasted by residents rather than by supermarkets. But the bigger picture is one of food waste all down the chain, from the farmer to the consumer. We need to rethink how we grow, package, transport, market and consume food, she says. (Frew 2014) So, I go to resturant and I would not to order too much food. As an international student, I cook rarely and take away is a usual thing.  So I do not want to waste too much food and food waste is less.


In fact, I eat this kind of organic food rarely. However, I eat food with organic material of packaging bag. This packaging can recycle using.
