I started off this week's assignment by playing 'Words with Friends.' It is one of the leading mobile word that challenges players to create the highest scoring words-- very much like scrabble!
I also watched a few scenes from the sitcom- Big Bang Theory.
For mind-mapping, I used www.bubbl.us, an online tool that helped me in exploring various themes connected with winter.
Here is a link to the map that I had created. Be sure to pan, zoom in and zoom out as required while viewing this: https://bubbl.us/?h=1b6f80/36d065/17PxXztf/.LRg
Here's a link to the final mind map with some images that I've shared via Skydrive--again, feel free to zoom in for clarity: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=B9BCBE333969229!681&authkey=!AHoMBA9uMjKt-mU&v=3
I then started documenting my ideas onto my design notebook, using cross-products and association maps. Here are some silly ideas for winter clothing and accessories:
Idea #1 Caribou Winter Hat:
Idea #2 Mistletoe Scarf:
Idea #3 Frostbite Boots:
Idea #4 Slipping Soles:
Idea #5 Holey Winter Gloves:
Idea #6 Penguin Sleeping Bag:
Idea #7 Christmas Deco Hoodie:
Idea #8 Christmas Bell Earmuffs:
Idea #9 Sheer Gauze Windchill Jacket:
Idea #10 Invisibility Camouflage Winter Scarf:
The three sub-themes that I selected were scarves, coats/jackets and blankets.
Blankets is the sub-theme that has been assigned to me.
