Mixed Emotions (Student Work)

Derrick Lin


The idea of this project is to sell emotions through a product. I selected a mix between a concoction and vodka. The concoction is a fruit blend that contains emotions such as love, sadness, happiness, fear and anger. The Mixed Emotions cocktail evokes an emotion and changes your attitude according to your preference.

The spiral structure forms two straws that invite the consumer to visualize how the liquids combine as they drink. Two tiny mecanisms outline the straws to bottom of the container, allowing air to enter and hence permitting the customer to absorb the liquid. The cap provides an air-tight seal, thus enclosing all openings.

While the front panel invites the consumer to drink, the back panel depicts phrases to illustrate the type of experience the customer will encounter. Because of its design, the consumers can dance, jump, go wild or do whatever they please without worrying about spilling their drink or breaking the bottle.
