    Laura Makes A Point Laura Makes A Point Presentation Transcript

    • Laura makes a point Part 2 of the side notes to Marks and Meaning, v.0 Laura Merritt November 18, 2008
    • Thinking outside of the book…
      • After the 1st part of the side notes, Ed mentioned other possibilities of images to illustrate q-tools:
      • ? = hot air popcorn popper ? = crockpot ? = pitchfork ? = lawn mower ) .
      • I couldn’t make analogies with the q-tools, but some images of how new ideas are produced came to my mind using these images.
    • Thinking outside of the book…
    • The origin of ideas
    • Don’t forget the classics!
      • What contributes to:
      • The success of an idea?
      • The origin of a problem?
      • Back to the book,
      • side comments-
      • " Untangling “
      • the whirl
      pitchfork
    • On shapes and flows
    • Speaking of ‘forms’
      • I saw in CanUX: Visual Thinking in Practice, 11.18.2008 by LukeW http://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?749 the following quote :
        • Forms: one sided (circle), two sided (football), three sided (triangle), four sided (square), etc.
      • I have a small problem with the word ‘ football ’
      • used to describe a two sided shape, since
      • football in the USA is different from fútbol in
      • Mexico. Talk about cultural considerations for
      • visual language.
      • Could the world ‘ eye ’ be used to describe this form/shape?
    • Follow the flow
    • Post-it notes
    • Silent
    • Notes on gender
    •  
      • Too many engines and technical diagrams, throwing in some illustrations for the housewife, you know, broadening the audience =)
      • On the other hand, it’s true that visual representations were very helpful in my vain attempts to learn to sew and knit. Sadly, understanding of a subject doesn’t make up for actual skill…
    • Deep notes
