visual communication practice

In the Loop


Description of idea

Describe your idea and concept of your work in relation to the festival outlines:

We are all traveling the same way, by the same method and we are all probably scrolling through our news feed or playing games. Why cant we talk about it ? and talk about how awkward the silence of this train is ?
Instead of fighting the social media battle, why dont we use it to our advantage. Almost everyone has a smartphone or smart object that allows them access to apps such as facebook and instagram. Developing on from ‘social media’ this app could really help to get people interacting and socialising with the people around them.
An app that allows you to automatically check in when you arrive at any public transport station. Once ‘checked in’ you can choose to check in the specific form of transport you will be taking.
This app allows you to chat, meet up, share, gossip and find .

What kind of communication approach do you use?

An Smart Phone app.

What are in your opinion concrete benefits to the society because of your communication?

We are in a society, that it would be almost impossible to take someone away from technology
Instead of working against it
Work with it

What did you personally learn from creating your submitted work?

Dialogue is more than a one dimension.
To get people to interact it takes more than just face value,

Why is your work, GOOD communication WORK?

We are so against social media but we need to learn to embrace it for its good and not disapprove of it for its bads.
By merging dialogue and interaction together this proves it is modern design but also a design that links directly to the most common form of interaction in the 21st century; social media.

Where and how do you intent do implement your work?

A smart phone app
campaigns will be found on trains, train stations, public transport, social media.

Did your intervention had an effect on other Media. If yes, describe the effect? (Has other media reported on it- how? Were you able to change other media with your work- how?)
