Gesture Design

Looking to hand signs to inspire artistic creations

Implications - Hand-based gestures allow us to express ourselves and is a major part of our ability to communicate with one another, whether or not we accompany their movements with speech. As such, designers today are experimenting with hand gestures -- ranging from crude to rock 'n' roll -- by applying them into design ranging from furniture to USB drives. These designs are novel and fun, giving the product a sense of playful quirkiness that appeals to lighthearted users.
