The companion volume to viction:ary´s upcoming publication ´´Palette 01: Black & White - New Monochrome Graphics´´, ´´Palette 02: Multicolour - New Rainbow-Hued Graphics´´ looks at the most engaging use of color in print design, packaging, installations, fashion, and architecture. While other color books have focused on the use of a single color in a design, ´´Multicolour - New Rainbow-Hued Graphics´´ concerns itself with the harmonious or dischordant - but always stunning - interplay of multiple colors in a design. The sheer resourcefulness of the featured designers is evident in this collection of cleverly manipulated graphic elements and forms. Projects within include screenprinted restaurant interior walls, reimagined color wheels, delicate yarn installations, tea canisters in every pantone shade, and even an entire neighborhood of multistory buildings in Brazil connected by painted color rays winding around the dwelling exteriors.
Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2015 in the subject Design (Industry, Graphics, Fashion), , course: Clothes and Human Experience, language: English, abstract: A bonfire of English apparel and imported clothes on the porch of Anand Bhawan-Piles of richly coloured satins, silks, chiffons, hand-tailored Savile Row suits and starched shirts. She witnessed as the Fire put forth its first flickering tongue of flame and knew deep within she also had to give up the French Frock she spurned and a doll, who she thought of as her own flesh and blood and not merely an imported object. Indira was torn between the love for her doll and the duty towards her nation (Frank, 2002). Finally, her sense of duty won over her love for the doll and one day she set light to it on the roof of Anand Bhawan. As a child the incident had such strong an impact on Indira Gandhi that it formed the first and most vivid memory of her life. The lavish and magnificent Nehru home- Anand Bhawan was transformed overnight from crystal chandelier, Spode china, sterling silver, Venetian glass, expensive carpets, Carriages, Arabian Horses to Khadi clad family members (Frank, 2002).
Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Design (Industry, Graphics, Fashion), , course: Fashion Promotion, language: English, abstract: The rise of the digital age in the last decade has pushed the practice of street style photography to become an important part of the fashion industry. The democratic environment of the internet allows street imagery to be shared and viewed on a large scale, which has resulted in this becoming a global phenomenon. The idea of capturing and viewing the styles of real people living day-to-day life on the streets of metropolitan cities is at the core of this phenomenon. In the last few years, voices doubting that contemporary street images any longer represent the real and authentic have started to rise within the industry. Why is the street style phenomenon so prominent and what is its relation to reality, city culture and society today? Street Style is an academic exploration of the contemporary street phenomenon, which is seen widely in fashion media and has opened many debates within in the fashion industry. The extensive research behind the paper and the ideas examined throughout the chapters provide a new point-of-view within these debates as well as add to the currently limited amount of research available the subject.
Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject Design (Industry, Graphics, Fashion), grade: 1,3, Linnaeus University (Design), course: Methods at Work, language: English, abstract: Many design methods are unconsciously used in creative processes (Lindemann, 2003). However understanding design methods better, gives the opportunity to improve the design process by applying adequate methods more consciously (Andreasen, Hansen, & Cash, 2015). Even though unconscious design methods are processed much faster, they can lead to ineffectiveness (Lindemann, 2003). By making use of adequate methods, the process can lead to a more satisfying outcome. Furthermore the design process becomes more approachable to other disciplines working with a designer.
Diploma Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Design (Industry, Graphics, Fashion), grade: A (97), , course: Fashion Design. Professional training, language: English, abstract: Work is devoted to the important problem of empathic design process as part of the product-service system and in particular methodology of empathic design process in context of low and middle income in Ukraine. Wide literature analysis as per product-service system and empathic design is conducted. As the result, way to implement product-service system was identified and detailed methodology of empathic design established. Following this, literature as per behavior of Ukrainian consumers, their social habits and financial capabilities is examined and as a consequence, client profile as per project is created. In the second section of the thesis, practical implementation of empathic design process is described. In particular, costumer directed research methods for information gathering and brief creation were applied. On the stage of concept generation modifications were proposed, which allow customer to choose from variety of designs and became active figure in design creation, instead of being passive consumer. After this, sample collection was developed and sample outfit with all styling detailing is realized in material. In the third section educational seminar as per topic of the research for bachelor students is designed. All components as per didactic plan of the lesson are included and actual scenario is proposed.
Masters Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Design (Industry, Graphics, Fashion), grade: excellent (A), University of Portsmouth, language: English, abstract: Text design is a notion, which has so far not been investigated extensively in communication theory. However, or just because of that, it provides an interesting field of research. This dissertation focuses on the perspective of the communicator, the copywriter, who has to manage multimodal elements to achieve an inherently coherent design. Thereby an important part of business communication is included: the representation of corporate identity. Beiersdorf and LOréal are successful companies in the global health and beauty sector and are both market leaders in their respective countries. Using the example of their homepages, the main aim of this study is to show, how text design contributes to the purpose of image representation. Moreover, the perspective of the communicator is foregrounded, establishing a concept for copywriters to approach a text compilation process. Under the aforementioned premise of showing to what extent text design features contribute to the purpose of presenting an intended image, the front pages of the two websites are analysed and compared. In order to initiate the analysis, a theoretical framework is constructed, which simultaneously serves two purposes: firstly, it is used as an analysing tool to approach the homepages in question and secondly, it is evaluated in order to ascertain whether or not this framework might be applied by professional copywriters in a text compilation process for websites. The practical part shows that the intended image has a crucial impact on the way text is designed. The constructed framework proves useful as an analysing tool. However, the results emphasise that the focus in this project is far too narrow for practical implementation in a professional context. The outlook suggests an extension of the created framework in order to make it applicable as a supportive tool for copywriters.
Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2013 in the subject Design (Industry, Graphics, Fashion), grade: N/A, Cranfield University, language: English, abstract: This work aims at the advancement of state-of-art accelerometer design and optimization methodology by developing an ear-plug accelerometer for race car drivers based on a novel mechanical principle. The accelerometer is used for the measurements of head acceleration when an injurious event occurs. Main requirements for such sensor are miniaturization (2×2 mm), because the device must be placed into the driver earpiece, and its measurement accuracy (i.e. high sensitivity, low crosstalk and low nonlinearity) since the device is used for safety monitoring purpose. A micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS)-based (bulk micromachined) piezoresistive accelerometer was selected as enabling technology for the development of the sensor. The primary accelerometer elements that can be manipulated during the design stage are: the sensing element (piezoresistors), the micromechanical structure and the measurements circuit. Each of these elements has been specifically designed in order to maximize the sensor performance and to achieve the miniaturization required for the studied application. To achieve accelerometer high sensitivity and miniaturization silicon nanowires (SiNWs) as nanometer scale piezoresistors are adopted as sensing elements. Currently this technology is at an infancy stage, but very promising through the exploitation of the Giant piezoresistance effect of SiNWs. This work then measures the potential of the SiNWs as nanoscale piezoresistors by calculating the major performance indexes, both electrical and mechanical, of the novel accelerometer. The results clearly demonstrate that the use of nanoscale piezoresistors boosts the sensitivity by 30 times in comparison to conventional microscale piezoresistors. A feasibility study on nanowires fabrication by both top-down and bottom-up approaches is also carried out. The micromechanical structure used for the design of the accelerometer is an optimized highly symmetric geometry chosen for its self-cancelling property. This work, for the first time, presents an optimization process of the accelerometer micromechanical structure based on a novel mechanical principle, which simultaneously increases the sensitivity and reduces the cross-sensitivity progressively. In the open literature among highly symmetric geometries no other study has to date reported enhancement of the electrical sensitivity and reduction of the cross-talk at the same time.
