Proposal #1

What are ways for the public to interact with digital information? What are ways we can make information more engaging, interesting, and entertaining? Can we create a piece or element that can be interactive and informational (that presents some form of communication at the same time)?

Using existing technologies from the digital world that present some form of interactivity, we can combine this technology to create a new dimension in design and global communication.

Examples of existing technology can possibly be augmented reality, touch-screen tech, gyroscopic 3D tech, tablets, computers, mobile phones, and mp3 players.

The goal would be creating a new visual experience that would physically engage the public through whatever information they so desire to view.

Proposal #2

What is packaging? How can packaging evolve? How can packaging be much more engaging and useful for the product? Can packaging be part of the product?

You see packaging being used to promote a brand and the product. Packaging is being used in decorative and creative ways visually to get your attention on the product/brand. That is usually the limits of package design, but can the boundaries be pushed more? A package can become a useful tool for the environment (sustainability purposes) or become a necessary piece or option for enhancing the product being packaged. Package design can be pushed to become a important tool for promoting the product and enhance the product in a creative way to further engage the audience in a new experience.

Proposal #3

Pictures are worth 1000 words. Can typography be worth 1000 pictures? Typography has been used over the course of history to present information and communicate to the people. It has been use in every printed material possible. The use of typography feels limitless but at the same time be pushed further. Can typography be used to evoke feeling, emotions, choice, and behaviors in ways other than the content being presented to viewers? Can the forms of typography be pushed in a certain way to evoke these feelings? Can we flex/bend our knowledge or rules we have on typography to create something entirely new and engaging to the audience? Can we build a new experience/dimension in communication by creating behaviors in type?
