Case Study: Messenger Bag by Ugmonk

Case Study: Messenger Bag by Ugmonk

2 years in the making, Ugmonk by Jeff Sheldon recently introduced a Waxed Canvas Messenger Bag to his shop. Based in Philadelphia USA, Jeff has being making truly beautiful products for our lifestyle. With the Messenger Bag, Jeff is sharing his whole creative process, from the concept sketches to the final product. Very impressive and totally inspiring, please enjoy! Ugmonk has always been about making products that I wanted to exist. Yes, there are thousands of different bags on the market to choose from, but I wanted to design a bag completely from scratch based around my wants while incorporating the Ugmonk aesthetic. The original idea for the bag started over 2 years ago but it was a long process to finally see the finished product through. Each new product is a learning process and brings on new challenges, but in the end it’s worth the work. In Jeff's Words All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk Digital Mockup I don’t have any sewing or pattern-making experience, but I knew it would be helpful to draw the bag digitally to get a more precise mockup to send to manufacturers. This also helped me figure out the dimensions and proportions for each part of the bag. Though some parts of the bag were altered during the actual prototyping process, this gave me a solid idea to work from. All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk Early Prototypes It’s hard to know exactly how the sketches will translate until creating the first physical prototype. After I had the first prototype bag in hand I noticed a number of things that needed to be modified and improved. For example, the original canvas that I chose was too thin and didn’t have enough structure making the bag feel too flimsy. Since I only had a sample swatch of the canvas it was hard to know that it wouldn’t work well for a whole bag, but that’s why it’s important to build out the whole product before proceeding with the full run. We also tweaked a number of other things like the length of the front flap, extending the back leather strip to help cinch the sides closed, and using more streamlined hardware. All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk Product Photography It was an amazing feeling to finally have the finished bags in hand. The bags looked and felt incredible in person but I wanted to make sure that the same quality and detail really came through in the product photography. Too many people overlook this part when selling online and skimp on photography. This is the only interaction a potential customer will have with the bag and it’s vital that the photos reflect the quality of the product. I spent several days shooting the bags and designing the product page layout and flow.

Stylish Illustrations by Chris Gall

Chris Gall has been drawing pictures and writing stories for as long as he can remember. When he was caught drawing pictures on his desk in second grade, his teacher made him clean all the desks in the classroom. She suggested that he might be an artist someday. He won a Read Magazine Young Writer's Award in 7th grade, and that inspired him to write stories to go with his art. In college he decided to become an illustrator for a living and he has been creating artwork ever since. His artwork has been seen in almost every publication in America, including Time, Newsweek, People, Fortune, The New York Times, and the Washington Post. He has won over 50 major awards from such organizations as Communication Arts Magazine and the Society of Illustrators. He has been an adjunct professor of art at the University of Arizona, he loves to restore classic cars, he pilots all kinds of airplanes, and he even spent 4 years as a professional stand-up comedian. For more information about Chris Gall visit his Web site at http://www.chrisgall.com/ Some Works PROCESS I researched the life of the author, including interviews and essays which addressed the author’s inspiration for the poem. After I felt I had a good sense of the author’s intent, I set about to narrow down my possible subject matter to a classic symbol of American industry in the early 20th century-the Chrysler Building in New York. I wanted to capture the sense of drama, wonder and achievement that was prevalent during that period of American history. But more than an architectural solution was required-I needed to address the human element as well. After many sketches I centered around a quiet moment perched high on one of the steel gargoyles. The solution lay in the juxtaposition of architectural drama and everyday life. Cocktail Book For the past 6 months I have been collaborating with an internationally-known NYC mixologist to create an illustrated book of modern mixology. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it means cocktails. Very sophisticated cocktails. The high-end cocktail scene is exploding in NYC right now, and is spreading quickly around the world. These illustrations are but a fraction of the art I have created for the book, each illustration typically paired with a particular cocktail recipe. I was working with with a limited palette for the unity of the design of the book.
