Once a week I will design something.
I will pick from a random word generator 2 words or rather I will have it generate me two random words. Looking at those words I will choose the word that I know the least about, dislike the most, or don’t understand, and I will base my work on this.
Each alternating week I will either create this piece using my hand or the computer. It will be an average postcard size and I will constrain myself to this size, whatever I decide it is, for the rest of the exercise.
The pieces do not have to be of a finished quality and I am not limiting myself the color choice, complexity, or medium in which they are created (with the exception being digital or physical).
The pieces are meant to have me consider the creative ways of thinking about this word, this does not necessarily have to be a design to define the word it could be a thought process of the word, a new representation of the word, or something unknown to me entirely.
If possible I will reference one thing in the process - this could be an article relating to an aspect of the word I am researching, a song that cases (or removes) some feeling, or even a movie or show that somehow draws parallels and inspiration to/from this work. It is not required but valued.
The final constraint is that it must be pure to ME and not try to emulate someone else. It can draw inspiration from anyone and anything but it has to feel like mine, I must be fearless in this.
Wk1 will start with digital design.
