With all feedback and additional ideas I had changed my final outcome. I had removed the loading screen bit because it was thinking too literally with the approach and I had removed the lightbulbs from the conveyor belt. The book had enough lightbulbs as it was (other inside contributions) so I decided to not go with it, besides I had one in my 1st idea, don’t really want repetition in my designs.
Here is how the final design looked.
The final design of the quote changed to having the text on the conveyor belt (instead of the bulb) and it had the ending of the belt just so the idea can marry up and all make sense, the quote was also shortened.
I was happy with the final design in the end I felt the concept behind it was quite strong, as opposed to the other designs that were a bit too literal, saying that though if I had more time I may have chosen a different design but I think this one is just as effective so I am happy with it. Hope you like it 🙂
The third quote and final quote I had to design read “The journey from ideas to production and the unpredictability of software” the previous version of the quote was “I love the journey from ideas to production, but hate the unpredictability of software” it was just a bit too wordy on the tongue so we as group decided to change all of our quotes so they didn’t include the love and hate aspect (as I previously mentioned) because that is what the book is about anyway and each sdesign will potray the love and hate without us having to physically say it.
The ideas I had for this were similar to my 1st idea in a sense, only with the inclusion of wanting to have a lightbulb on a conveyor belt on one side and the crashing of software on the other side. This quote highlights the journey we make as designers on the out outcome towards creativity but the likelihood taht we may stumble across unforseen circumstances ultimately hindering our final outcome. But we usually don’t let this stop us.
Here is how my first idea looked
This is how the first idea looked once designed. Showing this to my class they gave me feedback on how to improve the design, they recommended having the lightbulbs get brighter and brighter but never having it actually fully light up simply because of ‘the unpredictability of software’ we don’t know what could hinder the advancing of our ideas.
The retouched version based on feedback can be seen below.
This was the idea I had received from a cohort suggesting it that the bulb gets lighter and lighter on its journey from ideas to production.
What someone had told me upon the finished design was that the quote can be read separately and it could probably be even shorter. That was something for me to consider for the (actual) final design.
