NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Design-driven audio accessory brand me.u today announced the winner of its earphone design contest with Pratt Institute, a global leader in higher education. Ten Pratt students – five in its Fashion program and five in its Industrial Design program -- participated in the "sponsored studio" that challenged them to develop designs for the next generation of me.u's high-quality earphones. The winning design was created by 21-year-old Tiverton, RI native Chantal Galipeau, a senior Fashion major. "It was a difficult decision for us, as the Pratt students presented so many exciting designs," said Johan Persson, Creative Director, C'Monde Studios, an award-winning Swedish industrial design studio based in Hong Kong that is the creative force behind the me.u brand. "But Chantal's design stood out for its boldness and innovation. It fits well with our brand's style aesthetic, and we feel it will speak to today's young creatives." "I draw a lot of my inspiration from the vibrancy of New York City," Galipeau explained. "I live in Brooklyn and am surrounded by rich colors and textures every time I walk down the street. So I tried to embody that energy in my design." As part of the contest, Pratt students were tasked with choosing materials and selecting color palettes and finishes for their new earphone design. Galipeau opted for a slick teal color scheme, inspired by Adelphi St. in Brooklyn and made from brushed aluminum with a silver plastic finish. The student designs had to fit the aesthetics of me.u's original product line, which was introduced earlier this year. The company's earphones embrace a colorful and bold street style that appeals to its target market of students and young creatives. Pratt faculty members provided guidance to the students, as did designers from C'Monde Studios. "We were…
NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Deloitte Consumer Spending Index (Index) marginally dipped in October after two months of consecutive increases. The Index tracks consumer cash flow as an indicator of future consumer spendingi. "The decrease in the real median new home price mainly contributed to the decrease in the Index this month," said Daniel Bachman, Deloitte's senior U.S. economist. "But the fundamentals behind consumer spending remain strong." The Index, which comprises four components – tax burden, initial unemployment claims, real wages and real home prices – decreased to 4.1 this month from 4.4 last month. "Despite a slight dip in home prices, consumers appear to be poised for some strong spending this season with lower gas prices and employment gains strengthening their confidence, said Alison Paul, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and retail and distribution sector leader. "In fact, in our most recent consumer holiday survey, shoppers told us they plan to spend 13 percent more than last year. And, in comparison to recent years, many will be shopping without a strict budget, which is good news for retailers hoping to up-sell or cross-sell more impulse prone shoppers. For retailers, the opportunity is there this year to provide in-demand products along with product complements and premium options. And of course, retailers should think about equipping their sales associates with information and ideas so they are sure to encourage customers to take advantage of additional offerings." Highlights of the Index include: Tax Burden: The tax rate has been effectively unchanged staying steady from last month at 11.8 percent. Initial Unemployment Claims: Claims marginally decreased to 295,000 from 303,000 last month down 9.7 percent from the same period last year. Real Wages: Real hourly wages were slightly down 0.1 percent from last month to $8.84 this month. Real Median New…
