Lehman's Inheritance

The crash of the mortgage markets in America forced one of the biggest investment banks in the world ‘Lehman Brothers’ to collapse. This brought the world economy into a deep recession and is now struggling not to sink into depression.

For my project I wanted to create and design products, that can help an individual to manage the crisis. My products are the inheritance of the crash. Through my research I decided, that saving money should be the main goal of the public at the moment.

I have used and modified everyday products to raise awareness of costs. By exposing people to their spending and also to their earnings my design is saving the owner money. My watch is focusing on the link between the two.
