Octobox Midterm Presentation

Octobox Midterm Presentation

First, we stumble across a team essentially ripping off our work. Then, we are behind again and the prototype isn’t going anywhere. And finally, a project revision- this late into the term! So with one night to completely change things up (not really, just tweak it), I sat down hammering out slides, Brian quickly assembled a prototype and Manuel managed to work out a Widget. The presentation rocked, and we established ourselves at the top level of the class again. Continue reading Octobox Midterm Presentation

Octobox Open House Poster Final Ver

Here it is, I didn’t do much after all. Restricted the content into a grid and move things around, added some nifty pieces of detail and finally, added the school and program branding as flags. However, there is a concern regarding the school branding as we chose to do it ourselves instead of letting the school place it themselves. I hope they be making such a big fuss about it.

Alright, well I’m not happy with it but a solid version was due on Valentine’s Day. And so here it is. I still have a day or two before the printers take a swing at this door sized poster, so I’ll try to dedicate another session or two adding more detail into the poster. The theme is my iteration of Manuel’s original vision of the poster and it incorporates several key ideas. We thought that using Tado as inspiration would be great to help guide us approach this poster.

I worked with the idea of having a “road to sustainability” that lead to the top, despite the fact that the hierarchy would retain the top-to-bottom feel. Like all my other posters, I like to take random risks and so this seems to be the big risk that I would take. The reason is that the road may seem to lead away from the idea itself because the hierarchy causes you to take the road of sustainability the “wrong” way. But ultimately, what I want to convey is that in general, we are still at the bottom of that road.

Enjoy the full poster after the jump. Continue reading Octobox Open House Poster Version 1

Friends of Octobox

Friends of Octobox

I forgot this blog even existed. Anyway, now tasked with the SFU Open House presentation poster, I’ve restarted with a revised theme in mind and here are some “Friends of Octobox”, creatures who assume the form factor of our purple mascot and will be featured as guests on the poster. I present you with puppybox, turtlebox and moobox.

A solid copy is due tomorrow morning..stay tuned for a copy.

Tomorrow, we have to present this poster for IAT333 and go up against other teams in another round of harsh student participation critique sessions. This is my largest poster yet, rolling out at 54 inches in length and standing 2 feet high. I also got a try out pantone colors for the first time and let me tell you, they are wonderful to work with. I tried a different approach since I seem to have a reputation as a layout/typography type of person. Figured in one night I would become vector happy and see if Vectora (the font of choice for this project) will hold up. Continue reading ID Praxis Personas Poster
