Today, the founders of new, multidisciplinary design studio 'Do Something More' came in and gave a short, informative talk about their journey through the industry, what drove them to start the studio and what they want their company to achieve. I found the talk really interesting as it was good to hear about their journey and their thoughts on brand identities, an area of design that forms a large part of my focus as a designer.
After the talk, the pair set us an in studio brief that will be completed over the next few weeks. Notes from the talk and specific information important to the brief are both listed below;
As part of the brief each student was given an existing service which will be rethought and improved as part of the project. Services were picked randomly from a hat to ensure that the service chosen was a completely random selection.
The services available as part of the brief were;
- Retirement home.
- Train operator.
- City council.
From the choices available I selected 'Library' from the hat, and so this is the service I will improve as part of the project.
