The Design Republic Workshop Entry.
brief —give me something i'll want to keep forever.
tip — remember this is primarily a design communication design thinking workshop.
researching me to make informed decisions
lateral thinking — what is it that I (ME) would / could cherish forever
if it's made / realised then all the better.
if it needs explaining, then you
should find a way to explain it in the context of the piece rather than
as a note attached to it as an excuse for not putting that thinking into
We received this email from Ian Anderson through our tutor. Due to the limited time scale I don't have a lot of time to think of too many different ideas. I started to research into Ian Anderson and how it got to where he is now, the different things that he is interested in, and deeper into him as a person. I found a lot of interviews and things about his exhibitions. Although not too much about him as a person, other than I know he supports Sheffield Wednesday, and he may or may not be the man who is posing as a horse in the google images. Then I started to read back through the brief, and saw a lot of things about 'I' and thought that it might be more appropriate to make an illustration of him and send that through. I think that this would be a good idea for him, as he may actually want to keep an illustration of himself.
The brief is intended as an entry, and from all the entry's Ian Anderson chooses who will be able to go to his workshop. Even though it was a very restricted brief, time-wise, I want to attend the workshop, therefore put everything aside to make time for this brief. I am happy with my entry for this brief and hope it is something that Ian Anderson will Cherish forever. And although I could really use the time which the two day workshop takes up to do my extended essay, I would like to attend the workshop.
