In this post, I will describe the process of iteration from the initial ideas, towards the final design. The quote featured here is “If we can’t make memories, we can’t heal” from Memento (2001).
In the beginning, I attempted to find a way to visually describe the idea of memories. I first thought of a simple graphic of a brain, which led to the following design:
