Here are some images drawn from some of the biggest environment / sustainability issues of this 21st century. They are here to inspire us to consider how can we combine research and link ourselves to a more sustainable way of living through a "Futuristic Be-Card". (Be = Business-e) Have a look at the images below. Do they give you any ideas in combining areas of research and creating you very own Sustainable Business Card? How could you represent these themes in a business card or a Be-Card?
Design Situation: You have been asked to design and create your own "Future Business Card". The e-Card is to represent you as a 21C Citizen and involves you researching what career and sustainable or environmental opportunities you could see yourself being involved in by the year 2021. The position or career you describe for yourself may not have even been invented yet. Be creative in your research and try to think what kind of careers may exist in the year 2021.
Investigate Research: Future Careers, Sustainability, Environment, Water, Renewable Energy, Future Transport, Virtual Reality. Design Draw and sketch 8 different ideas for business cards that involve some or all of the research topics. The card size, shape and content can be determined by you. The designs are then refined, developed into a final choice design. The design must be annotated and you must justify any choice you make by stating at least 6 different design specifications of the business card (eg Size, Shape, Career). There must be some design philosophy or rationale for your design choices. Create This is then created digitally or saved as a digital image. The final design is to be printed (hardcopy) both full size and enlarged to show all design detail in your presentation. Evaluation You will present your hardcopy/design and discuss all design decisions in a "crit" situation. Where you will describe and explain to the rest of the class what your design is about. Highlighting your research and design skills. You must state what your justification was and why you think it represents the future and your interpretation of Sustainability and your career.
