As I begin the process of wrapping everything up for the semester, I am finally starting to see my visual system come together. Throughout the semester, my visual system has taken many twists and turns. It was slow to start but once it all started to come together, things began to move a lot faster. The most time consuming part of it all is the constant updating of so many elements of the thesis. As I refine and re-iterate the various elements of my visual system and deliverables, I then have to go through all the thesis blogs, websites and social media accounts to update the visuals. However, this also gives me the opportunity to give the visuals a test run before applying them to wire frames and products.
The last piece to come together has been the agenda. I have been working out sketches and ideas for a few weeks but because I hadn't finalized the visual system, I didn't apply it to the ideas. I wish I had begun this process sooner. I feel like they have a good start but also have a long way to go before they are complete. As I dig in to each element of the thesis though, I get a clearer picture of what I want the final product to be. I am excited how far it has come and am excited to continue to see where it goes!
