Design that tells a story gives an object a history, and with history we can relate our memories and emotions. Designing with narrative allows an object to have a deeper layer of meaning and value, both to the designer and the consumer.

Fero was a part of a design studio at RMIT called Design as Narrative. The brief called on us to find a story within an in history and design an object for a contemporary company that tells that story.  The era in history was the Viking age and the company was Melbourne based accessories brand, Elk Accessories. A leather travel journal was designed, inspired by the Vikings passion for travel, adventure and storytelling.
