Information and Order 5

As a group we had to present all the objects we had in our bags and pockets. We had to group each items in different category by the order of LATCH.

“Information may be infinite, however…The organization of information is finite as it can only be organized by LATCH: Location, Alphabet, Time, Category, or Hierarchy.” – (Richard Saul Wurman, 1996)









Each picture is grouped by LATCH.

L - Place of living A - Name initals T - Size of shoe C - Material ordering H - Cost of jewelry


For my further development on information and order, I have collected all of my ID, Banks & shopping cards to group them in the sector of catergory. I used a scanner to produce this peice of work.

He is a Honorary Fellow of Falmouth University in the UK (2014), and has an Honourary Doctor of Humane Letters (Ph.D.). Dion’s work analyzes the manners by which prevailing belief systems and open foundations shape our comprehension of history, information, and the characteristic world. The activity of the craftsman, he says, is to run contrary to the natural order of things of prevailing society, to challenge observation and tradition. Appropriating archeological, field nature and other logical techniques for gathering, requesting, and showing objects, Dion makes works that question the qualifications between ‘objective’ logical strategies and ‘abstract’ impacts.

Once we agreed on a particular individual category to work with, we used photoshop to remove everything apart from it, leaving only that component in place on the four pages.

Draft of designing on a grid

For this task, we have been provided a grid to create our own font by using the grid. Once we completed structing it, we used a website called - fontstruct to design and download our very own font. I created a font which involves curvy lines and bumps on some letters. I have named it ‘Bubble’ due to curves.

Critical Analysis


Critical Analysis I have been given a task to create a book for the principles project - ‘Visual Summary’. As I started to create the cover, I noticed that UAL was in ‘visual’ so I uniquely made the UAL in bold to make it stand out. I have used a range of many skills and editing to create this book. I started off by sketching out the ideas of what I will be adding into the book. I created a Production Schedule to add the schedule of my duties for each day. I have shown my idea of my book and what I would include inside and how it is design. I have created a rough sketch on a storyboard to picture of how I'm going to design and edit my book. The programs I've used for my advert: Adobe InDesign and Photoshop for mock-ups. After a draft of editing the book and putting it together, I presented the work to my fellow classmates. I also made an audience reaction sheet, which showed show me which went well and what I needed to improve on I have managed my time management really well as I have edited the book before the deadline as I knew to do, as I drew out the storyboard which has made a better picture of what to do. The skills that have gone successfully is the book that I've created as I used many tools to create it on the Adobe programs. During this project, I have learnt many skills of how to make a structured layout, by using InDesign. I’ve also gained more skills on Photoshop when I was making the mock-up; making sure that I have the right amount of editing and also, finding out where I have gone wrong or where I have done well by looking at the ‘Audience Reaction’ results. I’ve also learnt how to publish the book from online. When making the sketches I have learnt that this helps me to figure out what I would want my book to look like which was very effective.
