Collect what you see!

In the process of designing, collecting imagery and documenting every twist and turn the design process takes- helps it move it forward. Our minds are constantly absorbing information, impressions and images that spark ideas, makes us react and helps us make decisions. Visual Research means keeping that data for ourselves, for future use or for a project through for example drawings, photography, text and film. Having a collection of visual research in front of you makes it easier to go back to a certain point in the process and make a different decision for a different outcome and it also allows other people to access it, so start collecting!

A nice game about throwing balls at cups.

At the last part of professor Adrian’s class we played a game, each player had to throw one ball, either to the nearest or furthest cup. Scoring the closer cup represented 5 points to your team, and scoring the furthest 10 points.

 Unfortunately only one of us did it, but of course, the important part of the game was to teach us a lesson  in a fun and relaxed way…it was all about confidence and what kind of challenges we propose for ourselves.

To conclude, the experience was very positive, we laughed and socialised with our new colleagues…and then, went to lunch!
