THINGS DESIGNED BY COMPANION SPECIES

AS MUST ALREADY BE EVIDENT FROM THE RATHER SCURRILOUS PERSONAGE THAT I HAVE CHOSEN TO REPRESENT THE SPECIES, I DO NOT HOLD OURSELVES IN TERRIBLY HIGH REGARD: ONE EYED TO DENOTE AN OBNOXIOUS SINGLE MINDEDNESS, TEETH TO DENOTE THE PREDATORY INSTINCT - THIS IS MORE OF A GROTESQUE MONSTER RATHER THAN THE WONDROUS CREATION THAN WE USUALLY LIKE TO CONSIDER OURSELVES TO BE.

TO FURTHER THE POINT, I WILL NOT BE COMPLIMENTARY WHEN IT COMES TO THE VISUAL MATERIAL OF THE IDENTITY THAT THE HUMAN PARTNER OF THE EQUATION APPLIES TO THE PRODUCTS. WE HAVE IMAGERY FROM TWO PSEUDO-SCIENCES (PHRENOLOGY AND PALMISTRY) WITH WHICH OUR HOMUNCULUS CHOOSES TO DECORATE CLOTHING, HOME, COMESTIBLES AND OBJECTS...

“A HOME WITHOUT A CAT — AND A WELL-FED, WELL-PETTED AND PROPERLY REVERED CAT — MAY BE A PERFECT HOME, PERHAPS, BUT HOW CAN IT PROVE TITLE?”

ARTICULATION...

This project started out as part of a tutorial to show my graphic design students how to apply a visual identity to a wide range of products. From where it took on a life of its own.

I wish to thank the many generous people who put free to use mockups, vectors, clipart, png images and videos online for obsessive types like me to use. The resources were gathered from: vecteezy.com, videezy.com, videos.pexel.com, pngmart, pngtree, freepik, pixeden, goodmockups, graphicburger, and mockupworld.
