Final Uni Project // Communication & InteractionWednesday, May 06, 2015
As I mentioned last week, I've been planning on sharing my Final Uni Coursework from this semester, well, the coursework I can share. I'm actually only going to have two projects to share but the second one I'll speak about is a bit broader in the stuff I did for it. But anyway, first up is my Communication & Interaction work.
So a little brief background to this; for this module, you had to take some sort of book or published work and make it interactive. I, at last minute, decided to choose a book about Zodiacs! From this I decided to go with quite a simple concept of being able to select on different illustrations representing a Zodiac. The main difference with my take on this project to those already similar out there for it was that my illustrations were of animals that either already represented or were 'ruled' by their sign. I did this because a lot of the time Zodiacs are created and illustrated in a way to appeal to females and felt this way of working would also appeal to males.
Anyway onto the project, obviously since it is an interactive project I can't really share it to allow you all to play around with it but I can show you some screen shots of it instead!
As I said it uses illustrations instead of text and follows the continuous cycle of Zodiacs starting at the top with Aries. There are a good few of the illustrations I really wanted to work on more but there just wasn't the time. For when I did create the illustrations I followed me favourite new way of doing things; painting/drawing it out first in my sketchbook then scanning and altering the image in Photoshop! So yep, all the illustrations are hand drawn (let's say that's why the look funny).
Either way I hope you liked this little project! I'll show part (maybe all) of my Creative Research tomorrow!
