This term my field is very product design based as we are expected to make a bespoke chair for an individual client, we are doing this in pairs and i have been paired with a product design student, which has released a lot of pressure as i attend to learn from his knowledge of this subject matter.
We first had to interview our client who was part of the CSAD staff, we were given David Wrenn who is head of graphics. We had a 30 minute interview asking questions from our questionnaire to give us an insight into the type of person David is, and what are his likes and dislikes, and from this we had to make a visual representation of the interview in the form of a mood board. This was interesting as just purely visual information really helped with the flow of ideas.
We then had an exercise where we had to draw as many chairs as we could on 2 pieces of a3 is continuous line. Which is something i really enjoy as i have used it as a technique before, and really makes you think about how to convey the shape of an object, and loosens up your drawings.
