    This project challenges designers to create a design tool, the Template. This investigation aims to explore and complicate a conventional tool of the design trade in both a physical and conceptual sense. By creating a physical mark-making took, designers could build a new model for creating form, language, communication, and storytelling. This book includes two different templates for the same purpose. The round, simpler form and the more complicated form both achieve the desired result. Read Less

Project Brief
This project challenges designers to create a design tool, the Template. This investigation aims to explore and complicate a conventional tool of the design trade in both a physical and conceptual sense. By creating a physical mark-making took, designers could build a new model for creating form, language, communication, and storytelling. These tools should also be accessible to other designers/makers and facilitate them building on the language. This project will combine the cold logic of systems design and the pleasure and idiosyncrasies of hand work.
 
Template Manifesto
These are tools for making three-dimensional compositions especially with equidistant lines and facets from different perspectives.
This book includes two different templates for the same purpose. The round, simpler form and the more complicated form both achieve the desired result. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
00 | the instructions
 



01 | the intention of making the template
         the intention behind the templates is to create a tool for making three-dimensional compositions. 
 
 
 
 
 
02 | the process of making unknown
         The templates were handed out to designers from various backgrounds without telling them the intention behind the templates. 
 
 



03 | the process of following instructions
       The templates were handed out to designers from various backgrounds and they were told to make drawings with three-dimensionality.
