ThumbmeUp / To get a ride

ThumbmeUp
ThumbmeUp

ThumbmeUp is a design of backpack-cover with a special thumb-up sign which means the intention of getting a free ride. With a retro-reflecting material on its edge, the thumb-up sign helps backpackers to give messages to drivers, instead of making gesture all the time. A driver can easily figure out the travellers' intention through the sign in the daytime. While at night, the strong light coming from the retro-reflecting material can also help draw the drivers’ attention, which is helpful to ensure safety. In addition, the erasable material in the middle of the sign makes it easy to rewrite your next destination with a fluorescent marker.
