A First-Aid Kit For the Avid Climber
Every rock climber knows that by climbing a skyscraper sized rock, they are taking some big risks. But just because you're taking a risk, doesn't mean you can't be prepared. "Fixed Protection" is a first-aid kit designed for climbers to use while climbing, whether that be indoors on a climbing wall, or on El Cap with no ropes.
For this project, I was prompted to create a first-aid kit that used a consistent design system that could be carried out through a variety of medical tools. Along with this, I wanted to combine a set of compact tools that could be easily distinguished in the case of an emergency, or just a little, torn blister.
A Colorful Kit That You'll Want to Hold Onto
Inspired by the large variety of holds on indoor climbing walls, I created abstract shapes that helped distinguish themselves for each package. Along with a bright and bold design, I used a monospace typeface with a simple layout for easy understanding of how to uses each tool. These different packages are contained in a sturdy box that can be packed along with other climbing gear.
