Concept board…


Our first task was to decide a key word out of the list on the hand out and I chose Geometric and Contemporary for my driver for my board.

Mind maps:

I did a mind map of the key words first:

Contemporary/Geometric mind map

I did a little materials mind map as well:

I looked into key images to help with inspiration from the websites listed on the slide show such as Dezeen, Cool Hunting, Cool Hunter and Design Boom.

Here are the pictures I have decided on:

Sketchmodel ideas:

I experimented with a piece of paper which gave me an idea by folding an A3 corners into triangles and repeating that on all sides.

However I did not like this piece at this point in the process so I got rid of it, even though it influenced one of my models later on:

Sketchmodel experiment

This book gave me some ideas on how to fold paper in geometric shapes:

Final Sketchmodels:

I produced two sketchmodels from the inspiration above having geometric shapes in mind when producing them:

Sketch visual:

I chose an image to do a sketchvisual with and I made a garden centre with fineliner and pencil crayons:

Making concept board:

I got all my photos and pieces ready to compile onto my A3 board.

I got my mini sketchmodel on the piece, a colour palette along the side, a piece of art called toletsigns2016, 2016 by Phyllida Barlow. Also I used font from word which was Castellar at 28 size font, photograph of my sketchmodel, sketchvisual and of a material.

This is a professional way to show your ideas to your clients in a quick, easy way. It handy technique to use to get as many ideas and materials down as possible. I enjoyed the process of this piece and how it all colour co-ordinates on the board.
