In Review

Well, it has been a very interesting week to say the least. I think it can be summed up as uncertain and overwhelming.

That being said, I am incredibly grateful for the teaching team. Reimagining the structure of this course to facilitate the ever changing advice being delivered would be no easy feat. So, thank you. I have been looking forward to taking this course ever since I learnt of its existence and it means a lot to be able to keep on keeping on.

Concept Development

My team have still been developing our concept - Twisted, and have been figuring out Zoom as we go. We have continued our research into the chosen domain of creative learning while mapping our what our video pitch will look like.

Personas, story boards, system sketches and pitches have been in the works and is starting to come together really nicely.

To date, the concept relates to a creative learning tool which facilitates problem solving and active collaboration through teaching colour theory to primary students.

A concept sketch can be seen below



Granted - this probably isn't the most relevant inspiration to an sci-fi coloured creature concept, but I have had a bit more time on my hands this week than usual. I was looking through my portfolio for graphic design and found some old inspirational imagery from one of my favourite graphic deisgners - Beau Bertens. He is this Dutch artist that is all for the evocative. The colours, the type face ... just everything!! I am always so drawn to his work because of his incredibly distinctive style.

I think that might be what has inspired me to write about him in this journal. I want the designs I work on, whether they are in a team or individual endeavours, to have something uniquely 'me' about them. Next step is finding out what I want to be synonymous with.
