Firstly, we came up with our logo named rertrEAT, a place for solo diners in NTU. Why we came up with retrEAT or the narrative behind retrEAT is shown in the image below.
During our presentation, we tested out the message with our classmates. Instead of saying “I’m dining solo, please…”, we changed it to “I’ don’t FOMO, I just…” and “I’m not anti-social, I’m just…” to fit into the millennial slang. Here are what some of them wrote:
Then we proceed on with our prototype. Here is a rough sketch by Tuyen.
Feedback given was:
- Most of the classmates enjoyed being able to write the message at the back of the chair. It felt something personal and people will know whether to approach or not.
- It seems like a lounge instead of a canteen.
- Can create better designs for logo and the message.
- Maybe this space can be used for events such as having introvert talks by famous people.
