Description:

The way we dress for work can offer clues about what we do for a living, where we are employed and even our professional rank. In some cases, work clothes help tell a story about the nature of working life. Uniforms are a perfect example of the impact of function on design.

In the 1700s, when new nations and governments were forming, public service employees began to wear uniforms in order to identify themselves to citizens. By the early 1900s, uniforms were an important feature in many corporate workplaces. These work clothes might include logos or color schemes identifying a particular company. Today, the design of modern uniforms helps communicate a preferred corporate identity – like cleanliness, reliability, or any number of traits with which a company hopes to be associated. Besides promoting corporate brands, most modern work uniforms take functionality and safety into consideration.
