Finally getting some hang of MFA now that i’m few weeks into it. Feeling a lot comfortable on how it works. Did some brainstorming on some research ideas and came up with two that i liked best. Graphic Designing for the illiterates and for the blind. These ideas mainly focuses on helping individuals that are less fortunates. The idea of coming up with products that could enhance people’s lives is quite interesting. Actually, i got inspired by the videos i watched from AIGA conference.

Videos i watched:

  1. Designing the Impossible: Nelly Ben Hayoun
  2. What I’ve Learned: Michael Bierut
  3. Redesigning the Future: Sevra Davis
  4. Back to the Beginning: Keetra Dean Dixon
  5. Let the Unknown Influence You: Emmi Salonen

Another video that was quite interesting was Objectified, it is a documentary about a relationship between products and the designer. It discusses about the thinking and the processes that goes behind a designing a product. I highly recommend people who haven’t seen this already.
