My final outcome for my year 1 project "Visualising Information".
Design a set of six pictograms that describes the historical development or evolution of an artefact over time. The signification of each pictogram is for you to decide upon, but the focus should clearly be the development of a cohesive set of symbols.
You are then asked to develop an artefact(s) in which your symbols should be used to guide us through the development of your chosen item. Use of language should be kept to a minimum as your symbols should speak for themselves. You will need to consider including statisical information in the form of dates/times/quantities etc.
Your individual symbol designs must also work at small and large scale. You are asked to present each design at 10mm and 200mm. Your work should be mounted and each large symbol should be captioned underneath in 10pt type denoting the intended signification.
You should see your designs as part of a set that could be expanded upon in future if required. Attention must be given to functionality and legibility. The stylistic nature of your designs is also important. You must demonstrate the pictograms are within the same set but be careful not to allow the style to overpower the functionality that this type of information design demands.
