[type3] Typeface Creation Inspiration

So I think I want to make either a geometric sans, or slab serif.

I've been thinking I would like to design a typeface based off a Taurus personality so I have chosen the assets strength, reliability, independent, and decorative.

Here is a link to my dropmark inspiration board.

[HCD] Reading Response and Process

So I watched the video, and while I think that they make some good points about making our world a better place, I felt as if the video was too "hokey." I also felt for some reason I felt like it wasn't very reputable, I think seeing pictures rather than seeing stick people would have spoken much stronger to see how real people are making real changes rather than this hypothetical and fantasized animation.

I do think it is important to consider the environmental impact of what we are making and packaging. But I think that the video gets caught up in the idea of "more" but doesn't address quality. I think that we can make quality products that are environmentally friendly, and that is where the designer's role comes in.

So here is the progress I've made with my package, experimenting with the pattern and finally getting to a material study.

[Packaging] Mock-Ups, Progress

I know it's not much at the moment, but I've been trying to really get my physical form down before working on the aesthetics, and my new paper came in today so I'll be making a new box with that.

I've also been working on my logo, I think I'll be adding a little more texture and draw some bone ends onto the knitting needles.

[Union Station] Updated Augmented Reality

So this is the updated motion, but it ended up rendering quite a bit faster than my ram preview so I'm going to work on the timing some more, and I think Nick and I might discuss some more design issues with the years.
