30 Playfully Personified Products

These Designs with Faces Make Products a Little More Friendly

— June 9, 2013 — Art & Design
Although they are not alive, these designs with faces are full of life. The addition of expressive human features like eyes, eyebrows and mouths is all it takes to add instant personality an inanimate object.

Depending on the direction it is facing, the curvature of a line can make an unfeeling object seem like it is smiling or frowning. Some designers even bring objects to life by imposing like emotions that match the object's traits -- like a sleepy-eyed coffee mug or an angry-faced hammer. It is easy to empathize and become attached to products that seem to mimic what you are feeling.

These cartoonish products with faces will brighten the mundane tasks we face every day. Not only will they bring a smile to your face, they will smile right back at you too.
