Part two of this assignment was redesigning the poster I created during my first semester. Knowing that the other project had specific requirements of it for the class, it was decided that this poster could become more simplified and become more informative and less about getting people to gather for a cause. This part of the assignment took many different forms throughout its development.
Part three of this assignment was the most engaging part for me. I felt much more invested in designing something that looked less like a graphic designer was involved. Part three changed a few times and went from interactive information, to ideas about environmental graphics, to theoretical design, that hints at a relationship between people and bees. Bees communication like humans, but through vibration and dance. In the same way humans are able to communication through vibrations of vocal chords and stringed instruments. Instruments and song cause us to dance. Although the purpose of bees vibration and dance have an entirely different meaning because they use vibration and dance to signal food, danger and the presence of a new queen. In the end I created a cigar box guitar that carried the information from part 2 but also was able to reflect different hum patterns based on the strings used and the construction of the sound holes.
