The purpose of this study was to determine the role of graphic designers or brands in building a good brand experience in a pop-up store for generating branding buzz on social media. Brands are trying to build up good brand experience through their branding promotions in order to get to good brand identity and image for their customers. Brands are also using diverse social media as a platform for their brand communication with their customers. Recently, a pop-up store is used as an experiential store for creating the good brand experience and for getting positive buzz related to the brand. Thus, this study researched about existed or existing pop-up stores to realize how brand experience in a popup store works to generate branding buzz on social media.

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

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 […]
