For our exhibition space this is ideally what we have in mind all we need is some surface space the map is A1 size.
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
So after our many meetings, one of the jobs we needed to do was create an identity for our products (previously a kit)
Coming up with a name was difficult, as we didn’t want to limit ourselves to anything specific. It was important that the brand was not limiting in any way, whether that be visually, or content-wise.
We had considered using a symbol, or character to name the design, such as “~” or “*” for example. Then we realised we could just go back to our manifesto. Read This, Design That, Create Those, and changed it to the shorter, sharper “Use This, Create Those”.
Following our overall want to stick to the humble, sustainable standards, we went for a raw look. Recycled craft paper, and a stamp like font that was flexible enough to not follow a specific “movement” or design style that would contradict our ideals.
Some of the font choices we looked at:
The majority felt that the bottom last, and possibly the first upper left font were suitable. They were raw, textured, and fell into the image we wanted to give.
Some of the mock ups of our products, pending finalising:
Now to finalise and think of the product names for our final list of the products in our line, and finalise the layout…
The dices in our kit is to help designers make some random decision. They can be used with other items like the inspiration map.
The first attempt of food for thought:
Following last weeks’ group discussion, me and Jingzhou worked on the ” food for thought” part. If we would like to customerize our own fortune cookies from the size to the color, to bake the fortune cookies of our own would be our first step to approach to our goal. The picsare the result of the first attempt toward “food for thought” including the size measuring information for the over all package for our kit.
