As a bag lover, I often review the design of bags and evaluate their pros and cons. Therefore, I enrolled in a bag design class in which I could create a bag that tackles the observed pain points.

How can I design an unobtrusive bag that provides a smooth using experience for the users?

My Design

Two ways of carrying

The bag can be carried in two ways: carrying with hand, and carrying over shoulder. 

 

A decorative and functional surprise

The shiny blue lining serves as a surprise for a user; it also eases the process of finding objects in the bag.

 
 

Perceived affordance

Part of the drawstring is heavily padded to afford pulling and holding. It also alleviates pressure on hands.
