This project took place with foreign students, so it was implemented in English.
"Data visualisation" was about information design in connection with Augsburg.
I chose the theme of sustainability.
Originally I wanted to create a simple map showing the sustainable shops.
Then, my project developed into a tour guide. I was inspired by the Jochen Schweizer experience sets and took up the theme of fashion again by using fabrics to give the project a fitting character.
To incorporate the theme of sustainable fashion, I toyed with
the idea of sewing the project and got inspired.
I had to be clear about what information had to be packed into the tour guide:
A bicycle map, which marks the shops and takes up the sustainable idea of the journey; define three different tours and select suitable shops. And how to convert everything into fabric.
Three tours and the color scheme were defined.
The user-friendliness should be guaranteed by the fact that the important information
for the planned tour can be taken along compactly.
In the implementation I worked with Adobe Illustrator for the map and the sedcards, as well as with a sewing machine for the material look. For smaller details I used needle and thread. I also set the text manually on the secondhand fabrics using stamps and fabric colour. I started by working on the printed material and based on that I sewed and stamped the cloth book.
Looking back, almost everything worked out the way I had in mind. Only the scale of the map and the stamp elements were more difficult than I thought. But the core task of preparing information in an understandable, experimental way was finally achieved satisfactorily for me.
The goal of our design project, was to eventually portray his own theme in a poster that would be displayed at an exhibition. Here all thought processes, steps and results should be visualized again.
Take a look at our virtual exhibition!
