E-Learning: Design Opportunities at Home Part 1

 I chose the first problem instead of the second in the end....... As you can see, the cupboard design in the kitchen is big and spacious, which is truly good, however, one negative point about the designs is that, when one is cooking, attending many things at once, it is definitely more convenient if the refrigerator is near to the stove. In this case, it is not, and sometimes it is a hassle when we want to do things.

Week 10: Self-Assessment

The pictures shown are drawn by me and these are drawn on Week 8: Water Bottle. Hope You will appreciate them and please judge upon justice and not pin-point me.

Thank you!

1) Shape Borrowing
- it is a way of designing that helps us be able to use a shape and create an object we want to create
- example would be to use a triangle and sketch out a phone holder possibly, with a flat base
- one fact is that we are able to come up with unique yet cool for people, who want to own the certain object you've created.
2) S.C.A.M.P.E.R
- an acronym made up of 7 different styles of designing that serves as a guideline to create even more extravagant things
- very useful for anyone (pros or amateurs)
- Substitute Combine Adapt Modify Put to other use Eliminate Rearrange
- assists anybody to use other creation and mix them up to make Modern day people like us live a better lifestyle
- we use this mainly to make our design easier and the functions more simplified but still greatly appreciated in the sales market and to appear well in its appearance
- has to be good-looking and not dull, to attract customer's attention to it, or maybe even a unique one-coloured design can grasp the customer's attention
- when something is not in good use or arranged weirdly, it stands out well

An example of a BAD photo

This picture shown is as you can see......BLUR!!! People don't like looking at blur photos, which mean they are bad, real bad. There isn't a focus on any subject or object, the resolution is poor thus, the picture is not worthy to be seen. People would rather look at better pictures and not like this one shown above.

An example of a GD photo

This is a picture of Venice, Italy, the so-called "La Dominante" and "The Floating City". It is a picture at night and the way the photographer captures it is really very nice and makes people feel like they want to go to Venice.

First Few lessons on Sketching

Our teacher, Mr Soh, after asking all the 5 groups of 4-5 in my class to do a research and presentation on different types of drawings, taught us 2 types of drawings that we had to learn to use to be able to draw something really good. One being Perspective Drawing, the other is Isometric Projection. I will show you what I had learnt through his first practical lessons. Now in secondary school, I found Art/Design very interesting because it does not only tell us to paint or draw any random thing. You need to have creativity and then you start to improvise things to make the outcome good.

Reflection on My First ADMT presentation

I felt that my group did pretty well except that we had too few pictures to illustrate and overall, everyone did great, in terms of research and presenting......I liked it very much to present in front of the class because you get to share your findings to the class and most of them will listen to you. I hope to do more of such interactive projects in the future, and we get to know more of our friends also. :D
