Based on the book, No Plot? No Problem!: A Low-Stress, High-Velocity Guide to Writing a Novel in 30 Days, this kit takes the tone and task of inspiring writers one step further. It includes a clam shell box, inspiration cards immersed in tongue-in-cheek tone, a Noveling Affidavit, a progress calendar, and other humorous elements to keep a writer on task, all designed in bold colors and a retro-styled typographic treatment that aptly underscores the humor in the kit, and emphasizes the brand tone in the original book. Designed by Rise-and-Shine Studio.
Here’s a shining example of employing designers’ user-focused and creative problem-solving thinking to transform dull, tired customer touch-points into something of more value. Listing the caloric values of the shopper’s purchases, information about the purchased products’ demand, and even information on events in the area, the simple receipt thus converts the experience of shopping at the market into an activity that directly relates to the customer’s daily routines. It even plays serendipitously with an opportunity in mini history lessons.
