The concept was fairly simple: I buy t-shirts online and they always come wrinkled and I always run out of coat-hangers. So I designed a sustainable, reusable way to send and keep your t-shirts. As you open the package you create a coat hanger. The packaging could be made from recycled material whether it is card or plastic and the only waste is the green tear-away tab. The t-shirt seen here is from Threadless.
This project won a FIRST prize in the D&AD Student Awards 2007 category ‘What else do you do?’. I was dead chuffed to win a yellow pencil.
