Umbra x Pratt

The 7th Annual Umbra x Pratt Design Competition recently took place and the winning design is just too cute. Designed by Jeff Rubio, the “Clutch Clip” is a stylish clip that resembles a handbag handle that can be placed on paper bags or other items and used to transport them.

The students whose winning designs are determined by the Umbra design team to be eligible for production and meet Umbra’s criteria of quality and affordability, will be given the opportunity to work with Umbra’s team to create a prototype. If a design is manufactured, it will appear in Umbra’s catalog and earn royalties for the student designer and Pratt Institute.
