Willingness to begin, continue and complete a creative endeavor is a major factor related to output. On the motivational continuum are two stimuli affecting self-determined motivation: (1) intrinsic motivation – desire to involve oneself in a task solely for personal gratification or pleasure, and (2) extrinsic motivation – influence of outside factors on one’s desire to involve oneself in a task (Ryan & Deci, 2000).

The phenomenon of combining fashin with a health-related cause, also called health fashion, has taken many forms in the last two decades (Walker, 2010).

The Central Role Of Product Beauty In Consumers’ Neuropsychological Response To The Design Of Hedonic And Utilitarian Products, Veena Chattaraman, Hyejeong Kim, Gopikrishna Deshpande

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Aesthetic experience and preference is not a unitary phenomenon, and is the result of affective and cognitive elements (Di Dio & Gallese, 2009). Affective response refers to the feelings and emotions experienced when interacting with or observing an object (Yeung & Wyer, 2004). Cognitive response includes the mental categorization of the product as well as productrelated beliefs such as quality, durability, and ease of use (Bloch, 1995). While studies have examined how different properties of the object contribute to perceptions of product beauty, the influence of these perception in subsequent affective and cognitive responses of consumer has been left unexamined.

A Selection Of Artists' Books From Murray Library's Special Collections, Murray Library

Friends of Murray Library

Visually exciting and intellectually provocative, artists' books push to the outermost limits our assumed definition of what a book is, and turn the practice of reading into a novel experience. Simply defined, artists' books are a hybrid art form in which books and art intersect. Many of the over 100 artists' books in Murray Library's collection are the work of well-known book artists, including works by Messiah College art faculty. Friends funds new acquisitions to the collection each year, enhancing its use as an interdisciplinary teaching resource.

Design And The Woman, Sharon Kluck Jan 1971

Design And The Woman, Sharon Kluck

Honors Theses

Woman is a unique and almost mystic creature. Her role in society is limited only by her dreams and desires. One important aim in a woman's life is to appear her best at all times. By careful selection and a proper foundation in the art of clothing, she is well on her way to accomplishing her goal. With a thorough knowledge of her own physical characteristics and a few basics in the fundamental elements of design, the lady may be creative in applying these guides to her own needs. Each piece of clothing can be a delightful reflection of ...
