I received my final grade for Design Studio: Concepts and Narratives and received an overall mark of 91/100. I am pretty happy with that, considering I only got a low mark in my first assessment.
I have completed my studies in the class Design Studio: Concepts and Narratives with Swinburne online and wanted to share my thoughts and what I learned a long the way. Although I do not have my final grade just yet, I am pretty confident that I have passed the class. ?
Week 12 of Design Studio: Concepts and Narratives is complete. In week 12 we created our final animation that we had been constructing through weeks 10 to 12. It was really wonderful to be able to see the early idea come to life and use cut paper to translate that story.
Week 11 of Design Studio: Concepts and Narratives is complete. In week 11 we continued work on our final project, which is to produce a 30 second animation, through the development of a storyboard.
Week 8 of Design Studio: Concepts and Narratives is complete. In week 8 we continued our development of design conceptualisation, through anti-design.
This week I focussed on developing my favourite concept, which was a Tissue Box Necklace. The main idea being that it could be worn around the neck, made of paper (construction paper) and have tissues that were too small to be practical. Creating something that is anti-design, means that it might at first appear to be useful, but it’s function is severely limited. I began the process by creating many model plans for how the box would be folded and cut. I didn’t want something that was too small, and decided to reduce the size 200% from a standard tissue box. This was it was still large enough to be ‘annoying’ as a necklace accessory. After this I experimented with hand drawn patterns, to make the tissue box more eye catching and interesting. Then I investigated a name for the tissue box and after numerous searches and business name/trademark checks decided on Tishlace, Tissue Box Necklace.
