Archives for the month of: September, 2010

These are my concepts which I’ve developed after selecting 3 of 5 of my rough ideas and preliminary concepts, Most of my designs are based with a globe as the main theme as I found it the easiest to work with and it satisfies most of the requirements for the project.

In this first design I wanted to use a widely accepted symbol of communication the “cellphone”,¬† in order to emphasize “shrinking the planet” I made the phone and the planet to around the same size and placed wide swooping arrows coming from around the world to pointing at the cellphone symbolizing that the cellphone brings people together and distance is not longer a problem.

In my second design I wanted to use the globe in another way and also to use another accepted symbol of communication a headset, the headset for me symbolizes the communications aspect and the size of it compared to the globe fulfills the shrinking of the world and bring people together. One thing that i noticed from my first design was that the profit aspect is not noticeable enough so I made it a point in my second design so theres the bar graph in the background, it can either be a bar graph or a line graph but for the concept i chose to go with a bar graph so i can make use of the color red to make the globe pop from the image.

This is my third and final concept¬† design, I have to say that this didn’t turn out how the first rough was like but the idea is still there. A globe with a wide arrow warping around it with a $ symbol on it representing profits and or bringing people together ad shrinking the word, riddled with little communication towers in the little globe to represent mobile technologies with the communication towers themselves.

I was asked to to have 5 rough ideas and designs ready for class and withing nothing to work from and the themes “Mobile technologies are bringing people from the furthest regions of the globe together, shrinking the planet and increasing profits” the only base idea I came up with originated from the globe so all my ideas came from something revolving around the globe.

The photos were taken from my phone camera so the quality isn’t very good but it’s all I have at hand, the school scanners don’t seem to be working either (=.=)

To be completely honest I’ve never started a blog before in my life, so bare with me and lets get through this together. I can positively say that I had never thought about starting a blog or blogging in general, but since it will become part of my educational career then maybe I’ll try my best to learn and further my knowledge.

Well I don’t know what else to write so I’ll bring this to a closing with this last statement, “Least I’ll have something to show for it” as someone in my class whispered.
