This course have definitely introduced new process in a fun and playful format. I have enjoyed the resources provided within each unit, the videos and talks were so inspirational. I have learned that it is ok to move forward with an idea as long as you strongly believe in it and work as much as possible to essentially “Make it work!”
The weekly videos were such a great element as it adds an element of inspiration and expands our vision with what we are working on at the moment. I was so inspired by Aderson’s talk “Disruptive Wonder for a Change” it was amazing and she presented things that are not commonly seen. She constantly kept calling for pushing your limits as a designer and that’s what stuck in my head after watching that video.
On Exploration 2 there was an obvious influence I had and I knew I needed to capture that and explore it. I was so intrigued in the idea of creating a folded card and not only because it was such an interesting format but because I haven’t done anything like it before. Maybe it’s risky? I thought.. But then I decided let it be because that’s the only way I am going to learn for future projects.
This course has also taught me to be comfortable and that we are all learning. I didn’t quite feel that way when I was at university, I was scared to take risks and careful when doing something that’s considered different. The way this course is structured allowed us to be playful and stay playful through out.
