Design for a Better Marriage is Pratt grad Alyona Makeeva's subject for her masters thesis. The Adam and Eve Interactive Sleeping Bag was a key part of the project--humorous, yes, but also a curious exploration of communication values, offering creative activities to be shared between couples.
My thesis explores the notion of marriage in today's America, as it's affected by social changes and cultural tradition, and how design can bring back the affinity and genuine communication into a family. Inside the warm top cover of the sleeping bag are 12 Tyvek panels that can have multiple uses.
Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
