For the course Open Design we had to make a chess piece. This piece had to connect with yourself. First we made a mind map about ourselves.
After the mindmap we had to take 5 words out of the mindmap which inspired us to work with.
My 5 words are:
After that we had to choose what sort of chesspiece we wanted to make.
I chose the pawn.
After that we had to design the chesspiece. We had to work in Sketch Up. Before I started designing I did some tutorials on Sketch Up. I wanted to make two hands who were holding a bag, because my words were collaborate and shopping. But I was unable to make it. So I had to think of a new idea. My other words were baking and cupcake, so I thought I can make a cupcake. 3 of my words are in this design. Baking, cupcakes and collaborate, because I like to bake together with other people.
After I made the design, it was time to print it. On the computer I saw that it took a long time to print it. But it was not. It took about half an hour.
And this is the end result!
Here you see a photo of the previous assignment. We made a puzzle table. Each part of the table represented one of us.
