thumbnails for signage proposal...

My Contribution

My Contribution was put on my personal blog on Tuesday:

As you know, my group's concept is to focus on political and social influences on couches/sofas in the 20th century. So far, we have worked very well as a group. Everyone has had an equal voice and everyone has contributed. I am a part of the artifacts group. My group and I have compiled to different sofas we want to use as well as tie the history of them to our concept as well. I decided to be apart of this group because it has always been an interest of mine in history of design classes to figure out the influence of certain design characteristics. I am good at researching and digging deep to connect the influence to the piece of furniture or whatever it may be. I think I can relate the information and connection of the two in a way non-designers would understand. As for coming up with our concept and the way we'll approach things, it really has been a group effort. Every person has contributed ideas and concepts that has lead us to the next thing. For our recent proposal, everyone was e-mailed and given the opportunity to change it or suggest things. Even though we have separate groups, we do not work completely separate. I have enjoyed being able to work with non-majors and 2nd year students. It has been a breathe of fresh air to have new minds to bounce ideas off of.


This is my thumbnail idea for our exhibit. It shows the variety of couches with clear differences just like the ones we plan on showing in our exhibit.

When I thought of thumbnails for the signage I thought of what factors would play in. I instantly thought about the patterns of the couched. I thought it would be interesting for the signage to relate to the couches that oppose.
