Lake Scavenger Hunt

Problem statment There are many bodies of water to be enjoyed in IOWA, but people don’t know the quality of the water. Is it good enough to enjoy the activities? Is it okay if I swallow the water of the lake? How do people know the water quality? This project works to find an answer for these questions and let people know the water quality of IOWA lakes. There are physical attributes that can help people determine the water quality of a lake. If people find some organisms in the lake, living organisms can be proof of the water quality. Due to weather conditions and safety concerns, it is sometimes not easy to find organisms — Especially for kids. Thus, this project created a way to solve this problem through a mobile game for children in particular. This game allows users to explore all lakes in IOWA to realize the water quality at home, or anywhere, anytime. Process book 2016 Fall Iowa State University Graduate Study Instructor: Quam, Andrea

Connex Brand Identity

INTRODUCTION & PROBLEM STATEMENT: We have explored experiential knowledge and its relation to graphic design in each of our projects. In our final project of the semester we will explore understanding the development of an identity and brand through experience mapping. You will create an identity for a company or entity, and determine its brand parameters and touch-points through the development of an experience map. In this project we will explore different methods of identity development. One is the matrix sketching method. If you have already experienced this method, you will be introduced to a methodology developed by Bruce Archer (whose article you read at the beginning of the semester). The company or entity you select must operate at an international level. You may invent a company or entity if you wish, but it is suggested you select a model company to base it on for research purposes. You will determine a point of difference from the existing company.   OBJECTIVES: Learn the opportunities in experience mapping for design strategy and development Develop your understanding and relationship with the terms: brand, brand experience and brand values Experience identity development methods related to matrix sketching or Bruce Archer’s development methodology. Utilize […]

Mariposa Ice Cream’s Environmental Graphic Design.

Designing a brand identity + brand experience through a popup store. For my creative component, I wanted to create a brand identity and brand experience through a popup store for a new ice cream brand, Mariposa. I believe that the brand experience at a popup store is related with brand identity and has a unique brand story, making it one of the best ways to get customers’ royalty. Brand experiences arise in a wide variety of settings when consumers consume brands. Thus, lots of companies try to create their unique brand experience for customers. For example, Starbucks is one of the most experiential brands, their goal is to be the ‘third place’ in people’s daily life. To become the third place, they created the ultimate customer experience at their retail stores through their aroma, music, furniture, display and environment. As a result, Starbucks delivered on their promise to become the ‘3rd place’ in people’s life. Like Starbucks, I’d like to create a unique experience for customers at my brand’s popup store. A pop up store is a low risk, cost-effective way to foster my new ice cream brand because it has a number of benefits: affordability, short term commitment, and brand awareness. It also generates buzz, allows for testing & experimentation, encourages spontaneous purchases and serves as a brand extension. Thus, […]

This is the final result of a graduate seminar class about the issue:Sound at College of Design in Iowa State University. Introduction I chose the STARBUCKS located on 327 Lincoln Way. I visited there on same day but different time. My first visiting time for listening map was 12:30pm on JAN 31st 2015, Saturday for an hour. Second visiting was at from 8:00pm to 9:00pm on JAN 31st 2015, Saturday. While I was staying there, there were many people inside and also lots of peoples came to buy their drinks. After I sat on beside of main entrance, then I tried to focus on the sounds with questions: Where does the sound come from? What kind of sound could I hear? How many times do I hear the sound? Can I figure out the source of the sound? When I heard some kinds of sounds, I sketched the sound source and marked on time line. Sometimes I could not concentrate on hearing, because people who were beside on me, chatted with loud voice, but it was also good source for my listening map. There are many kinds of sounds: flushing sound, door locking sound, door closing sound, grinding sound, water […]

mayo clinic

This is the final result of the wayfinding design class at College of Design in Iowa State University. Introduction Our Design proposal follows Mayo’s mission by providing a unique solutions to Way-finding that meet Mayo Clinic standards and serve their users needs accordingly. After analyzing the site Two dierent issues were taken into consideration. The first is how to emphasis the Centerplace where users can easily find a connection point from the Skyway to the Subway and vise versa. This structure designed specifically for the Center Place location.The Center Place is the main connection point users should access in order to transfer from the Skyway to the Subway and vice versa. An emphasis on the Centerplace has been implemented to show it as a unique, easy to spot destination on all directional and orientation signs. Another issue is designing a system that suits users unique needs. This system serves the large percentage of users at Mayo Clinic where using wheelchairs is common at the location. For this reason we designed this structure to give them closer access to the orientation information where small details are important. This would facilitate their mobility and ease of information recognition. On the other side, directional information is presented which does not need to be seen from close […]

12 Symbols

These twelve symbol designs are the final design of the Artgr 571 class in Iowa state University. For this design, I selected two topics, police officer and bulldozer. Once I selected topic, I researched about the stories related with my topics. As a result of my study, I designed these twelve symbols with design principles such as direction, anomaly, contrast of positive/negative, similarity and repetition. If you want to see the process of this work, you can see here. 2015 Spring Iowa State University Graduate Study Instructor: Fontaine, Lisa
