Nahrin Yousif - SMILY BAG

Finalist of the The Best Fujifilm Instax Mini 70 Camera Bag


2017 Finalist Nahrin Yousif SMILY BAG


What inspired your sketch?
I chose this assignment because I enjoy humor in art and design, and I believe a big smile is always an icebreaker and something to start a conversation with. The world is too serious and sometimes it gets stressful. So why not have fun and express your joy to the world by simply carrying a happy bag :)

Why did you select this look for your design?
Colored leather, plastic, metal for the support.

What is your design background?
This is the first bag I designed. I am originally a jewelry designer.

Do you currently design your own handbags? If so, would your Instax design fit into the collection?
I am an architect morphed into becoming a jewelry designer. I used Matrix (a 3D program) to design this bag.

What materials do you like to work with?
Playful and colorful just like the cameras. The glasses actually support the front piece, the bag belt is the braid, and the bag itself is the face.

Why did you want to design this Instax camera bag?
I wanted to connect a happy and fun face with the camera front view.
