GDA Mapping Project

Question: How can instruction manuals be made more innovative?

Group: Publication Design. Research was collected by focusing on instruction manuals for small handheld gadgets. I interviewed users for their opinions, as well as designers and printers for their feedback on what they do to improve their manuals.Ā These are 2 booklets that are concertina style and held together with a sleeve. They act as an instruction manual on instruction manuals.

Booklet 1: Side 1 speaks directly to the designer (audience) and informs them of what the problem is. (facts on side 2 - according to users)

Booklet 2: Provides ideas in the form of a flowchart/map to push the thoughts and encourage ideas of the designer (rather than provide a definitive solution) to how one can create a more innovative instruction manual (according to whatĀ professionalsĀ and other designers have suggested)

Feedback:

+ Great Humour and Illustrations,Ā Good Format

- Not sure of the use of Superman Character

I- Discard Booklet 2 and work on Booklet 1 more

One Week Project

We were divided in groups and given a question to answer in form of an exhibition.

Our question:

What is the purpose/value of self-initiated/personal projects?

As this is a question that all students & those in the practice, we easily related to it, and began mind-mapping with what we find the positives and negatives of personal work:

+ extend our portfolios

+ experiment with new ideas and push ourselves without the restriction of client requirements and deadlines

+ try new avenues in the design industry that we may have never tried before

+ learn new techniques and skills

+ our personal work acts can act as a reference for future projects

+ potential employers/clients would never see this part of a designer, and would perhaps benefit the designer in showing how far they can push themselves and their ideas

- procrastination with either paid work or personal project

- self-indulgent: we change the rules to fit to what we’d like, which is unrealistic in the practice world

We then individually spoke, emailed and interviewed designers, freelancers and tutors about what they felt about self-initiated projects. Many of them came back with similar answers, but justified them with their own experiences.

Personally, I find that aside from client-assigned work and/or college-assigned work, how much we do in our outside time shapes us for the future.Personal projects help you identify and push yourself to discover new things about what you like or don’t like. We divided our solutions into 3 categories:

  • personal worth
  • commercial worth
  • negative aspects

For the exhibition, we found that generally, our personal work, which SHOULD be carried out outside of paid/college work hours, is done in our personal work space at home. We recreated a desk space with a laptop, sketchbooks of our own personal work and pens, and books ABOUT designers’ personal work. We found that we all had messy workspaces like this with various forms of inspiration, and put together booklets about what different designers from different subsections of the industry had to say.

PDF Prototype
This is my flat-plan for how I intend on presenting m PDF.
Going through this with Jo was really helpful in helping sort out in my mind, and eventually on paper, what I wanted my PDF to ultimately look like.

Yellow: Introduction (of myself and the brief) and conclusion (of my final piece, as well as the process as a whole)
Orange: Research into the Client (global, national and local), Audience, my chosen client and their competitors (and evaluating my choice)
Pink: Idea generation for concept 1, 2 & 3 (and evaluating each), final idea choice (evaluating my choice), and developing this idea further
Green (little evaluation tags on selected pages) and the 16th page, evaluation (of my final piece and the process as a whole)
I think this 16 page flat-plan helps explain my process efficiently.
Any suggestions/ideas would be great!

Question: Who is the Author?
Our Answer: There isn’t ONE AUTHOR.
As a group, we identified that the role of the author is shared by the client, designer as well as the audience.
Without the Client, the designer cannot design, and the audience cannot interpret.
Without the Designers, the client’s idea cannot be processed, and there is nothing for the audience to interpret.
Without the Audience, the client’s purpose is not reached, and the designer’s role plays no effect as there is no one to interpret.
The client, designer and audience each play vital roles using interpretations, ideas, the influence of culture and perceptions to COMMUNICATE GOOD DESIGN.

Working Text With Image
'Two' in terms of God and a Leader, or even a Leader and Religion.
'Shadow' symbolised in a hierarchy shown through the men being higher than those below them.
'Closed' is the society these two men may be in, seen as what our society today is accepting, or not accepting, with sexuality.

'UNSTABLE' being the title and representation of all of the above.

19 year old’s First Day of School


The first task asĀ  Foundation Degree student was to work in a group to find inspiration in the local area of Elephant and Castle, as well as in the world of Graphic Design itself.
We spent a good 2 hours at Heygate Estate just round the corner.

Honestly, all I knew about this brutal concrete scar, was that it is abandoned, and after visiting once before, I refused to do so again. I gathered the courage to go there yesterday, and I came out LOVING the place. There is so much history, so much that’s just been left behind… it is so exciting to see all this. I saw personalities of those that lived there, with the little wallpaper I could see through the windows and the old-fashioned wall-lighting. Yet I could see what it had become before being boarded up by Southwark Council; broken glass, urban decay, graffiti and barbed wire. While this explained the similar lifestyle of Elephant and Castle as an area, there was the possibility of a future, by knowing that this will soon be demolished as part of E&C’s regeneration.

Some of the pictures taken are jaw dropping, but you’ve got to get it right, the one I can’t stop thinking about it the image of the block of lats from left to right (uploaded). It’s the shocking type, just shows the masses that lived there, the state it’s in, how it reflects the area it’s in. You’re just towered over with this placed.


Heygate Estate is a beautiful site to capture some deep-thinking photography, and from what I know, will be greatly missed by film directors too. Demolition began, so, to anyone who’s interested, go there before it’s too late!

Photography credits go to a talented friend, Hairdye & Hot Chocolate, thank you!)

From Now On…

Even though I haven’t been blogging for quite that long, my posts from now on will be related to my FdA course at LCC

BUT, do not take worry upon yourself…

it’s still me, it’s still my work, it’s still my influences.
