This week was all about ideation. We did two in-class workshops that helped us think more about the form of our capstone projects. I thought the exercises were very helpful. One of them was a crazy 8’s exercise where we had to spend 2 minutes coming up with ideas of form that our projects could take on. At the end, we had 8 ideas. I know I still want my capstone to take the form of a book, but this exercise helped me notice that I could possibly also create a few additional assets in addition to my book like a small packaging line or branding project! We also did wall writing, lenses of inspiration, and forced connections as our other ideation exercises. They were all super helpful and I enjoyed seeing my classmates’ ideas. For homework this week, we were also required to create a Gantt chart, which is a visual, graphical description of a project schedule. This helped me see what I need to complete month by month as well as week by week in order to finish my capstone project. Overall, this week helped open my eyes into more possibilities for my capstone final deliverables!
