Senior Project Phase #1

My idea encompasses societies ability to attach gender to advertisements, people, and inanimate objects. I'm in the process of research right now, the most interesting information has to do with color theory and the relationship of PINK and BLUE with genders. Did you know that blue was actually associated with girls, and pink with boys? Very thought provoking.
I'm also finding shocking images of ridiculous gendered products such as cell phones, ziploc bags, earplugs, beer, and even semi-automatic rifles!
I don't have a design direction yet, but I'm looking at advertising or creating a company that makes non-gendered products, but the only things I can think of are hygiene products and toys, and I think those are very overdone and tired.
JV is showing us this video but I will keep you updated on my progress!

Quote of the day:
"
I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." - Marilyn Monroe
