About the Tote Bag:
As someone who’s majoring in Architectural Design I wanted to design a bag that brings my major into play with it. I’ve always been very fond of architectural structures, and I wanted to create a city landscape to showcase my love of it. I added footsteps towards the front of it for the sole purpose of making it seem as if you’re walking towards a city full of different colors and designs. I, also, incorporated the clouds in the sky, because when I see a blue sky with few clouds, it makes me happy because I see it as a beautiful day outside. I want those who love architecture, or even cities in general, to be able to enjoy this bag. I anticipate for people to carry their everyday essentials in the bag. If you’re walking around in a city, I would expect to see items that you use on a daily basis and that would come in handy at any given moment. I have designed a tote bag before, but this is my first time bringing my interest into it and I’ve learned how to bring different materials into it, instead of just paint. With this bag, I really see my love of architecture, and I hope those who also love it can see that too.
