Creative Design: Graduate

The Power of Artemis

  • Fatimah Hakeem (Louisiana State University)
  • Casey R. Stannard (Louisiana State University)


The purpose of this design was to create a sustainable ensemble that reflects and embodies a key source of inspiration using the mind-mapping technique. The chosen source of inspiration was Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt, the moon, and nature. The mind map was digitally created using the XMindTM software. The various functionalities of the XMindTM software enabled easy changes and adjustments to the map, and the organization of ideas in a unique way. The creation of this garment expands on existing designs that use a mind-mapping approach, with a concentration on novelty and sustainability. Applying Norman's three levels of design as a guide for building the mind map incorporates an academic rationale into the design. Through this unique work, the designer emphasizes the importance of integrating creative thinking techniques to produce more effective and creative clothing that factors human emotions as well.

Keywords: Artemis, Mind mapping, Sustainability, Asymmetrical design
