Brief Title Tea Towels

Module Brief


Brief Tea towels are becoming more of a unique gift and personal product with companies such as To Dry For and The Clever Baggers selling unique artist designed tea towels for around ÂŁ10 each. It seems a strange match putting nice graphics on something that is used to clean up mess. You must produce a set of 4 tea towels that develop as they get dirtier, creating an interactive and personal experience with the user. Background/Considerations The packaging must communicate the light heartedness and fun of the product as well as securely containing and displaying the product. The tea towels could be bought as gifts so the design must have universal appeal and not intentionally exclude any audience. The tea towels themselves will be screen printed using 1 colour only As custom tea towels retail at a considerable amount of money this product must be finished to a high quality standard.
