Project 1: Translating & Exploring Design

Thumbnail Sketches 1

This worksheet helps to break down our design process and critically consider different types of possibility. After completing it, I narrowed down to 3 imageries that best reflects the identity of Art-on-the-Move Programme:

1. Positivity – pocket + craft material

2. Fun – bed

3. Transformation – friends/companian

While all of these sketches are supposed to reflect the identity of the programme, these 3 icons encapsulate the most important aspect of the programme.

Referring to my previous post, my choosen concept: Community Arts Programme just by your bedside!

Among my preferred icons, I work the positivity-craft material. I break down the icon into 5 different aspect and did 3-4 alternative icons for each such that I could reference them while developing my sketch.

Looking at my current progress, I feel that it lacks the element of bedside/patient/hospital. I’m working on that now.

Project 1: Research & Development

  • Design Aim

To convey the nature of art-on-the-move programme as well as the spirits evoke by the volunteers in this programme.

  • Concept of Project (Title- theme)

Community arts programme just by your bedside! – craft & convenience
Bedside crafts that connects people – convenience, craft, companionship

  • Keywords – rationale

Craft – subject of programme
Convenience – nature of programme
Transformation – expected outcome of programme; transforms the lives of patients and volunteers
Connect – this programme brings people together
Positivity – the overall impression of the programme I would like to convey to patients as well as anyone who sees the badge.

  • Mood Board

Through class discussion, I realised that these keywords could be categorised and covers different aspect of the programme.

… that question mark will only be filled when my concept is finalised.
