Pedagogical Considerations For Teaching Modern Performance Glove Design, Susan L. Sokolowski, Gary Corr 2018 University of Oregon

Pedagogical Considerations For Teaching Modern Performance Glove Design, Susan L. Sokolowski, Gary Corr

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

When we teach students how to be apparel designers, we address the user’s needs (performance and aesthetic), body shape and size, ideation, materials selection, pattern development, construction and evaluation to create new products. However, when teaching modern performance glove design, the pedagogical process is undefined. The human hand is a complex interface to create new products for. Literature in the space includes: historical documentation of gloves and glove making, hand anthropometry, methods of evaluating the hand and glove functionality to determine product design opportunities, but the process of linking knowledge together to teach students glove design from start-to-finish, with ...


The Fashion System & Material Analysis: Issey Miyake's 132 5 Collection, Krissi Riewe 2018 Iowa State University

The Fashion System & Material Analysis: Issey Miyake's 132 5 Collection, Krissi Riewe

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

A case-study on an Issey Miyake 132 5 collection piece is used to unpack the relationship between clothing and fashion design within the fashion system. Within the conceptual framework of this system, Miyake's making philosophy arguably positions his work as clothes, not fashion. Instead, his work offers a critical response to the fashion system by focusing on the connection between designer and wearer through the material object of clothing, thereby calling into question our understandings of the relationship between fashion and clothing.

Examining Core Dysfunction In Football Athletes Through Interdisciplinary Systematic Design Problem Solving, Nigel Adedayo R. Joseph, Chanmi Hwang 2018 Washington State University

Examining Core Dysfunction In Football Athletes Through Interdisciplinary Systematic Design Problem Solving, Nigel Adedayo R. Joseph, Chanmi Hwang

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

The purpose of this study is to examine the problem of core-related injuries in football athletes and propose a prototype for a lower body football girdle. The study is based on Labat and Sokolowski's (1999) systematic design problem-solving, by way of a biomechanical and physiological approach. Finding showed that creating neurological feedback increases core engagement when wearing the prototype. Future research should further study these effects.


“Adapting Lindqvist’S Kinetic Garment Method For An Upcycled, Zero-Waste Childrenswear Romper”, April Elisha Stanley, Ellen C. McKinney 2018 Iowa State University

“Adapting Lindqvist’S Kinetic Garment Method For An Upcycled, Zero-Waste Childrenswear Romper”, April Elisha Stanley, Ellen C. Mckinney

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

A current upcycling trend is creating little girls' garments from menswear, exemplifying some tenets of sustainability. The purpose was to research methods for creating a sustainable little girls’ garment by upcycling menswear, which revealed a gap in the market for bifurcated, zero-waste designs. This design focused on specific elements of sustainability to increase useful lifespan: zero-waste and garment adjustability. Lindqvist’s (2013) experimental patternmaking technique, kinetic garment construction, was chosen for experimentation in conjunction with upcycled textiles to test adaptability for creating upcycled, zero-waste garments. Adapting Lindqvist’s (2013) method of kinetic garment construction by using the original technique along ...


“Implementing An Upcycled/Redesign Project In A Dress Theory Course”, April Elisha Stanley 2018 Iowa State University

“Implementing An Upcycled/Redesign Project In A Dress Theory Course”, April Elisha Stanley

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

In an undergraduate dress theory course, the expectations were that a new project could address existing gaps: (a) students were interested in sewing but the program was merchandising-based only, (b) previously, dress meanings and motivations were not highly emphasized in the course in spite of their importance to understanding dress practices (Lennon, Johnson, & Rudd, 2017), and (c) past students demonstrated little to no knowledge about sustainability practices for garment design, particularly the textile waste problem in the industry where materials can be reused to construct new products (e.g., Hawley, 2008). A new project was implemented for the course to ...


Supporting Idea Generation With Design Tools: Nesting Design Heuristics Within Morphological Analysis, Keelin Leahy, Shanna R. Daly, Seda McKilligan, Colleen Seifert 2018 University of Limerick

Supporting Idea Generation With Design Tools: Nesting Design Heuristics Within Morphological Analysis, Keelin Leahy, Shanna R. Daly, Seda Mckilligan, Colleen Seifert

Industrial Design Publications

As some design problems are complex, generating concepts for a complete artefact may be overwhelming for designers, especially for novices. Students often learn to use morphological analysis (MA) to decompose a problem into subcomponents, allowing them to focus on designing for more specific functions. However, generating new ideas for subcomponents remains a challenge for novices. In this study, the authors investigated an educational method combining the morphological analysis approach with a tool designed to facilitate the generation of novel, differing ideas called design heuristics (DH). The results demonstrate that adding design heuristics within morphological analysis supported students in building upon ...


Active Commuting Luggage, Ryan Eiffert 2017 Iowa State University

Active Commuting Luggage, Ryan Eiffert

Honors Projects and Posters

Bike commuting is a great way for people to get more out of their day. The extra exercise and outdoor time is often a welcome stress relief from hectic work days. Since US work culture rarely provides accommodation for employees who actively commute, rider’s equipment choices are crucial to fitting into the office after they arrive.

The existing market for bike commuting backpacks focuses on the ride, and fail to address what comes after. Current bags are designed with large spaces that do not separate things needed for the workday, and sweaty items from the commute. My pack addresses ...


Deconstructing Cultural Values Of Products: Implications For Sustainable Design, Tejas Dhadphale 2017 Iowa State University

Deconstructing Cultural Values Of Products: Implications For Sustainable Design, Tejas Dhadphale

Industrial Design Conference Presentations, Posters and Proceedings

In a global era where products are reaching across international boundaries, designers are increasingly challenged to design for diverse cultural context. Designers are agents of cultural change and should be cognizant of the impact their products have on local markets. The key for developing culturally appropriate products lies in understanding how cultural objects acquire and communicate cultural meanings. The goal of this paper is to deconstruct and categorize cultural meanings associated with objects and highlight the key determinants that contribute to cultural values. Cultural product images and phrases were analysed using a four-layered model for classifying cultural meanings. Participants were ...

Immolation Of The Phoenix, James H. Raphaelson 2017 Gettysburg College

Immolation Of The Phoenix, James H. Raphaelson

Wonders of Nature and Artifice

The time period of wunderkammer opened a plethora of sciences that scholars devoted their lives to. Among these were botany, zoology, ethnography – studies that had already been somewhat established before. But there were some fields that had not been tapped into, one of them being the study of human anatomy. Up until the late 15th century, the most legitimate writing on anatomy was the Fasciculus medicinae which had very crude illustrations and professed incorrect, archaic theories about the human body.

Botanical Illustrations, Emily N. Roush 2017 Gettysburg College

Botanical Illustrations, Emily N. Roush

Wonders of Nature and Artifice

Botanical illustrations were an integral facet of botany in the Renaissance era. Many naturalists and physicians studied plants in collections to observe and record the naturalia. In many collections, specimens were displayed for visitors to draw and then create illustrations or prints. With an illustration, detail in plants could be captured and visually understood instead of learning through text. The great feature of illustrations was the fact that the specimens could be exotic yet still studied. Kusukawa says, “Pictures enabled scholars to access unobtainable objects, build knowledge of rare objects over time, and study them long after the live specimens ...


Quintus Curtius, Francesca M. Costa 2017 Gettysburg College

Quintus Curtius, Francesca M. Costa

Wonders of Nature and Artifice

This book would have been created and read during the 1600’s, and throughout the European Enlightenment period. Written in Latin, it was made to be consumed by a wealthy and educated gentleman. This example was donated to the exhibit by Charles Emmons. It is covered in not-so-well-tooled vellum and gold leaf. All in all, it is in good condition with no marginalia, so while the vellum cover in the Renaissance is sometimes used on textbooks or other travel-appropriate tomes, this was probably only in a stationary location for a long period of time.

Crocodiles - The Singular Beast In The Renaissance Cabinet, Peter Zhang 2017 Gettysburg College

Crocodiles - The Singular Beast In The Renaissance Cabinet, Peter Zhang

Wonders of Nature and Artifice

Stuffed crocodiles often predominated many famous cabinets, hanging in the center of the ceiling. Crocodilians are the largest reptiles and the largest predator that spends time on land. They have existed for about 240 million years, and today there are 23 species of crocodilians in total, categorized in three families: 13 species of crocodiles, two species of alligators, and six species of caimans. Archaeologists found a “Supercroc” fossil as long as 40 feet (12 meters) and weighting 17,500 pounds in Niger. They believe that the crocodile lived alongside dinosaurs about 100 million years ago.

16th Century Antiphon, Abigail K. Major 2017 Gettysburg College

16th Century Antiphon, Abigail K. Major

Wonders of Nature and Artifice

The Renaissance era, which spanned from the 14th century until the 16th century, served as a transitional period. Considered to be a period of rebirth, the Renaissance commenced a revival in culture, literature, and the arts throughout Europe. The 16th century antiphon not only signifies that music was indeed an important aspect during the Renaissance, but is also tangible evidence that choral music, and more specifically Gregorian chant, were prominent forms of musical expression.

Wonders of Nature and Artifice

As a gift to Gettysburg College, known as Pennsylvania College at the time, Johann Heinrich Wilbrand Stuckenberg willed his vast estate including an extensive 17th-19th century map collection after his death in London in 1903. J.H.W. Stuckenberg, and his wife Mary, were fond of the college for its progressive curriculum and support of his philosophical endeavors in publication, sociology, religion, and his native politics and culture.Two items that were bequeathed to the college are a pair of small paintings, one a landscape, the other a seascape.
