Design Process: Revealing your MONCs

February 29, 2016


Similar to the wrapping that masks a Christmas present, the packaging around an item brings an element of mystery to a product and contents. Even if know what's inside - there's a big difference between seeing something on a screen or through a window and actually holding it in your hands.

Within a package there holds a product that is yours and yours alone. Whatever comes inside will become an every day item that you'll be proud to use and for your MONC eyewear: proud to wear too. Seeing any design go from a simple pencil sketch, to a visual, and eventually a real life product - is everything we desire to achieve from the design process. We go through rounds of development to get to this final idea of how to 'wrap' our products, and this makes it even more exciting when you reveal what's inside.

In the morning I woke up to explore the city and opened my curtains to be greeted with a snow blizzard – not typical discovering weather. But the next two days were for exploring the 2012 ‘World Design Capital’

July 11, 2017

At MONC our core values are based on designing high quality items that last, whilst creating a personality within each product. I know – ‘a personality within a product?’ – it sounds like crazy talk. But when you buy something, how often do you know what it’s made of, where it’s come from, and who’s made it?...Exactly.
