It was also important to make it compact, easy to use and store. As a result of which, it is a foldable iron which can be used by one hand to iron clothes at specific areas or on a table top.
It is battery operated so that there is no hassle with the wires. It can be stored in the folded position so that your hand does not come in contact with the hot iron part.

Bringing Food Enthusiasts Together
'Tastebuds' is a food app which matches your and other peoples' ingredients. This gives the users a chance to get together with other food enthusiasts, cook and enjoy a meal
'Tastebuds' has a special purpose. It is focused around Women who want to take a break from their monotonous, rudimentary lifestyle. The app helps them connect with new
people, get together, make new friends and empowers them with an ability to cook for passion instead of cooking for the family.
The app scans the refrigerator and shelves for available ingredients and suggests amazing recepies. It also allows you to post share them with the world. It matches the
ingredients with other people and gives you possible matches, people with whom you can meet and cook a meal together and share your experiences.
Every month, an active member with most matches gets to become the expert. They get an opportunity to attend MEET AND EAT KITCHEN which is a platform for them to
teach and share their culinary skills to other people. It is an effort to empower women and an opportunity for them to break free.
The idea makes so much sense for women who want to break free from their routine and do something fun, that lets them use their culinary skills, which has been used only to cook for their family.
Inspired by, and following the reading of Paul Elliman’s “My Typographies,” this two-week long exercise asked the students to create a new alphabet, that could double as letter forms and as a self-portrait. "The assignment was to look at typography both as meaning-making symbols whose function is to be strung together to make language, but also as marks on the page which themselves carry cultural connotations that can be 'read'. "The hope was that while the student looked at the distinct forms, lines, and curves that make each letter, they might also look at the associations of their chosen materials, and shapes."
Each of the us created an ambitious and distinct new series of letters that—while fully-functional as an alphabet—also stood in for an aspect of themselves. As Elliman argues, “Writing gives the impression of things. Conversely, things can give the impression of writing.”
My shoes are very close to my heart. They resonate with who I am...
So, for an Autobiographical Alphabet, they were the perfect medium of exploration.

The team had to answer questions about the Domain, the Users, The Purpose and the Brand. This was the foundation of the complete system. At each step the team had to keep delving deeper answering these questions and refining the concept.
