@marker:

Where are you from that you use A4? Maybe it's just me (and I've been out of America long enough to not know), but isn't American standard paper size Letter? Just kinda curious. Maybe I'm just seeing something that isn't there...

As for your design, by "getting bent" I meant more that, if the bag's supporting/base material was too soft, then if the bag could get "malformed" (for lack of a better word) and bend the books/pads out of shape. But seeing as you were thinking of using leather or something, that'd be much less likely to happen, if at all.


and nacho's "modular hard shell backpack" seems like an interesting idea. just the look of it made me think of TMNT... and that's a good thing, in this particular case...

what i mean by A4 is that the size of what i see all common messenger type bags, or atleast the ones i own as well as when i shop for them is that they only comfortably fit an a4 sized paper /a4 marker pad in relation to the height. if you go above that i.e A3 then they dont close.

My main reason for doing that design was a long time pet hate of there not being a solution out their to cater for A3, that and all the added functionality they seem to be providing with bags which imo is just ridiculous, if i wanted a moving, portable file system.... i'd buy a folder and then put that folder in my bag, likewise trying to cater for everything a student could possibly own... why? who carriers everything they own in a bag? Not only that but you shouldn't either because it will destroy your back. Its very rare that i have seen anyone not have enough space in the bag to get themselves to and from lectures or class, and all the people i see in lectures tend to either have rucksacks or messnger bags.

The other annoyance i find is with the excessively large (in depth) shoulder bags the ones which carry your laptop, your folders, your lunch , seperate file structure pouch, mobile phone pouch, pouch for your ipod and pouch for your dog is that walking down a crowded corridor with them is a nightmare. Same for when on a bus or on a train or tube when someone has decided to put their whole life in a bag. Its a pain for the owner who struggles to make it down a tight area and a pain for the person who constantly gets bumped into and smashed about by the other persons bag.

Just seems frustrating to me that bag designers are making these all signing and dancing bags, when they dont cater for different mediums, and A3 at least within the design and arts (which is quite a large community) is quite a common and regular used format.

Rant over lol

And yeah i liked the hard topped bag, but as long as it didnt look like teeange mutant nija turtles... all i would want to do is spin around on my back

Great work as usual everyone!!! Here are my favs in no particular order:

vespaw - Just a canvas back pack with rubber accents. (Clever I wish I had the time to render mine like that)

Guntar - Dual compartment bag that hangs on the locker door. (I love how the board fits in there to go)

johnnyS - Roll up bag. (It's like a design burrito to go)

b.lutjens - mitosis pack (cleaver school based cell division idea)

finally found the forum...
hi all

A long over due thanks to mindsystem for mentioning me, my first challenge ever at 1hdc.
I can assure you if i ever get around to making it that those little devils will be tight as heck. Agree in that not many people would actually wear that around, but just wanted to do something crazy cuz you never get the chance anywhere else.

a question for designugly (if word ever gets there) what was the tool used for your sketches? Absolutely drooled over the line work, amazing.
anyone knows?

This is just a guess ,Design ugly probably used a wacom cintiq and PS for the lines and Sketchbook pro for the coloring.

It depends on which wacom you use. If you have a cintiq 21qx (or whatever it is) then it will be a bit easier. The surface turns on them and the screen is right there as well. If you are like me and rock a intuos, then you have to get use to it a bit more. There is a new cintiq that is much cheaper then the 21, I think it is named 12 or something like that. I want to get one really bad. Also if you are using a intuos you may want to try using corel painter x, over PS to sketch. You can spin the 'paper' and this helps a lot. I still use my tablet with PS, but it is not typically to sketch in.

I've made some cool stuff on the laser cutter in way less then an hour. If Joshua know illustrator well and has a laser cutter. And an acrylic bender then I think if he had the idea thought out before he started it could be in an hour or less. But if you included the time for the cutter to do its thing then it might be a little over.

Make it in one hour? Maybe possible. Think of it, design it, do concept sketches, make it, finish it, photograph it, and make a presentation board?

Not a chance. I really don't care though because the idea isn't really that great anyway.
