Entry Description

People easily get used to staying in a bubble of personal adaptive habits without knowing how we can better improve our life through baby steps. The intention of the project “Small Things with Big Heart” is to remind us that people actually deserve a life with better quality. The premise is that everyone needs to be constantly aware of our own behaviors intentionally and unintentionally. The designer wants to start from small and achievable things through close and mindful observations. Taking the daily life items, the designer tries to “revisit” products that surround us.
