Here’s the final prototype after feedback from the class and Alfred that the battery is redundant, too reminiscent of iPod etc.
Yay! I’m done with Assignment 2!
Didn’t expect it to take so long! But well, when you have to trace all 73 keys of your keyboard it can’t really be snappy right?
The Assignment was to create a Pictogram for the NUS community. A Pictogram is a heavily reduced image of objects to its essential elements, in order to convey a message. Some examples of pictograms are Road Signs. We must compile 6 stages of reduction for our pictogram.
I’ll only post thumbnails to save space. You’ll have to click for enlargement 🙂
Here’s the starting Pic (Stage 1).
And here’s the rest of the stages. (Stage 2 – 6)
I initially selected Stage 5 and proceeded to develop it, but now looking back i think its rather cheapo. Ah well. For some reason Stage 6 is starting to appeal to me because of its minimalism and blocky, ambigious style.
Any way here is the development for Stage 5. I’ve decided to make the case a solid colour minimise the lines and complexity. One down side is it makes the whole pictogram even more ‘cheapo’. ack.
And on a whim, i decided to add colour to spruce it up. (Since we’re allowed to use ONE and only ONE colour other than Black & White)
As always leave comments, as feedback for improvement is always thoroughly appreciated.
