she told me,
you’re one of a kind.
i’m not entirely sure
what she means.
considering the earths population
– people’s hopes, dreams and talents –
someone is bound share similarities.
my uniqueness void.
so when she says things like that,
does it make me feeling happy?
i’m going to assume
she had nothing to say.
I’m not entirely sure what you get when you mix two compounds together, or whether they will or will not adhere. All that I can say for sure is the experience will be uniquely singular. We may share similar experiences, but exact experience seems, to my limited knowledge, highly improbable.
Even if we were situated side by side experiencing the same situation at present, the connotations and (mis)understanding to which we each use our language would posit us in having a completely different experience, counter to similar words expressed. We leave much assumption to colloquialisms and idiosyncrasies, that we lose the innate essence of the experience we attempt to contain. Something that by nature is free flowing.
I’ve expressed my lack of refinement as being the unabashed use of raw thought, regardless of how incoherent and illiterate it may read. Due to this seeming lack of polish will draw harsh critique or passing me up as being dumb. That’s okay, because I’m only capable of presenting myself as I know, and I admit that my education is limited. All I’m trying to say is we know words, but they affect us differently, regardless of their universal definition.
I’ve been given a dieline reproduction project in class. My task is to find a preexisting product package that is reasonably difficult to replicate in relation to our skill level. But not something so simplistic that it’s not a challenge for yourself. To be honest, I’ve always enjoyed well designed package, but the whole fabricating and precision needed in creating a package has always been something I detest. Since receiving this project, I’ve paid closer attention to the details needed in creating a products package, be it a bottle, canister, box or plastic wrap. Be the design of a package good or bad, a matter of opinion, I took the opportunity to analyze a products construction, placement of information, placement on the shelf, how it affects the consumer and other products in its proximity. I wish to share a website that I’ve come across on my search for unique packages. The website is called Oneextrapixel and the link that I was on is here.
As an aside, I did recently purchase this water called Karma. I got it because the bottle cap itself is a unique feature that makes it stand out from its competitors. Besides the clean and fairly simplistic design, the bottle cap has a top in which you push down. This action then pierces the lower part of the cap, which contains the water flavouring, and then you shake the bottle to mix the flavouring in with the water. It seems like completely frivolous step when the water can just be made with the flavour already added. But in doing this, I think the manufactures give the consumer the ability to chose how much flavour he/she wants to add. Here is the website for Karma Wellness Water.
