Our next task was to come together as a group and think of different ways we could convey messages, whether it be through conversation, imagery or text. We came to the conclusion about the message we want to drive is about communication, and how we need to feed more of this through to the students. It came to our understanding that a lack of communication led to missing pieces of a puzzle, something that we drove forward with our next plan on action.
We all came together and came up with a few ideas:
3 – the metaphor being the shapes in a box aren’t all the same, however all the shapes do have a place. We decided to develop this further of changing the shapes to be the world, and the world is a puzzle that we can solve using team effort and cooperation.
5 – making students understand that just because someone tells you to do something, you don’t necessarily have to go and do it. We then developed this onto thinking of the image having two sides, one dark side, and the other the bright side. The person will therefore have the choice to what path they wish to go down, emphasizing on the good from bad.
We then developed idea 3 as being our favourite, and thought about how we could make the world look like a puzzle. We came up with slogans and phrases that would help match our final image.
Our final poster would be the world as a puzzle with a few jigsaw pieces hanging out, giving us the understanding that the world can be solved with teamwork and communication. We also extended on the idea of building a sculpture outside the college with a projector shining over with the map of the world as a jigsaw puzzle. Furthermore, we thought on this idea as a GIF animation to be put on the big screen outside of the college also, giving the overall idea variation on how we can go about building it.
Overall, the making of this quick project was successful in the research gathering and teamwork, accomplishing a mock up and a written piece of how it would overall look if it was selected to go forward to be made.
