Band Merchandise was a collection I developed for my Simple Product Design course.
My brief dictated the use of Terracotta which helped me combine the odd flavour of this material(that is only mostly seen as planters and wind chimes) combined with the promotion of merchandise.
I wanted to take up music merchandise to build awareness for the music scene in India, to make something around the promotion of Indie music, as a viable career option. I saw potential in the material I use for expression and decided to build a product out of ceramic. I wanted to take up local artists but that would’ve limited my target audience as their fan following is very community and culture specific.
