SF Gocha

dsc07959We wanted to create a tote that encompassed our time working and living in San Francisco. Figuring out the design took awhile because we didn’t feel there was just one thing that represented our San Francisco. This is when we started brainstorming the idea of everyday San Francisco objects that usually go by unnoticed.

We call this tote, SF Gocha, gocha meaning “disarray/messy” in Japanese. It has (almost) everything we noticed on our walks around San Francisco.

SF Gochaは、私たちが仕事や生活で多くの時間を過ごしているサンフランシスコを描きました。いわゆる観光スポットやランドマークではなく、「私たち」の街をどうやってとらえることをできるのか。そんな日常のサンフランシスコを見つめるために、あらためて目を見開き街を歩きました。そしてタイトルにもあるように、日々の生活の隅っこにあるようなものたちを、ひとつのデザインにごちゃっとまとめました。
