Parts of Communication Design

The 2rd version of Personal Design Vocabulary project.

This time I started over again. I tried to focus more on the word ‘system’.

I think my vocabulary can be defined in a perfect system- human body.

So as ‘personal’, I used my body to be my new vocabulary. Different parts of my body define different words of communication design.

Gumball Machine

It’s a project called Personal Design Vocabulary.

Each pattern of gum balls represents each word in my design vocabulary.

When you turn around the handle of the machine, it’s like the thinking process of design. And then you can get the gum balls (words) out. The ideas come out after long term thinking and doing experience.

MUSICAL CHAIRS-Character Design

This animation is based on a familiar game — Musical Chairs. The main character in this animation represents the human race. The human, in his selfish ways, discovers that he can’t bear the consequences of his own actions. This animation is also trying to depict a society in which people constantly want to get more and more to fulfill their insatiable desires. Maybe the humans win, but perhaps they lose something of greater importance.
here are 8 characters in the animation. And they have different patterns on themselves.
