So, after a lot of weight lifting and running around and printing and maps and lack of ability to save certain files, we got our products done and dusted (minus 2 staples, and the box of dice and glasses, that iare with Yiche for finishing touches.)
(the map is awesome by the way)
For our exhibition space this is ideally what we have in mind all we need is some surface space the map is A1 size.
Here I was testing out which size would be best, and decided on the a1. the material being used will be tyvek paper which is light weight and very durable so screwing it up or repeated folding would not be a problem. So its okay to just stuff away in your bag..
some more detailed notes of decision making for map
Some notes of things to think about and things that need doing , that we discussed during group meeting on tuesday.
This is an example of the map as it is so far. With this we wanted to provide the user with a map that allows them to view london in a different way, by not providing much information They would be provided with an alterior method of finding their way through london by being given directions in a random way
i had seen this map last year and thought of it again when we decided to design a map for the project. the idea of this is genius, it is a light weight water proof map that has been done for various cities it can be crumpled up into the tiniest ball, I feel these attributes are very beneficial and useful to what we are wanting to do.
I came across this whilst researching today, whilst this idea may not be something we can achieve in the time given, to take our map idea further into an app or an interactive website could work really nicely!
