Small pic laundry detergent

In the early 2000s, digital cameras were all the rage. You could take pictures, store them on a card which you’d insert into your computer and perhaps eventually upload onto Myspace or Facebook. In 2016, Smartphones have completely taken over the consumer digital camera marketplace (excluding specialized high end cameras).

We make laundry products and think that traditional laundry detergent is ready to go the way of the digital cameras and dinosaurs (extinct). There simply has to be a better way of getting our dirty clothes soaped up than buying/bringing home/lifting a heavy detergent container, pouring and measuring into a cup, and then trying not to spill all over yourself as you add the detergent to the wash. How can we move traditional laundry detergent into the past with digital cameras, and bring it into the future alongside Smartphones?


Create a laundry detergent product that improves on current laundry practices:

1. What is your futuristic laundry detergent product?

2. How does it alleviate the pain points of current detergent or make the detergent experience satisfying/fun?

3. (Optional) Sketches, drawings, mock-ups, videos, CAD renderings or any other visuals that better illustrate your laundry detergent product

Things to consider:

- We want to hear your thoughts on interesting and exciting new directions that laundry might head in. Submissions that suggest predictable/already established practices will not be highly regarded

- Consider the human experience with laundry in the future, and how Anon Laundry co can fit into the new practices that will be in place

    Submissions will be graded on the following criteria:
  • Meets Deliverables
  • Creativity
  • Clarity
