OBJECTIVE / The brain is divided into the two hemisphere’s, the left and right. Each hemisphere has an outer layer of grey matter called the Cerebral Cortex that is supported by an inner layer of white matter. The Corpus Callosum is what links the two hemisphere’s together by a very large bundle of nerve fibers, and also by other smaller commissures, including the anterior commussure, posterior commussiure and hippocampal commissure. This bundle of networks transfer information between the two hemisphere’s to coordinate localized functions. The construction of all these cells and nerve’s are assymetrically distributed between the two hemispheres. While some of these districution and construction differences are consistent from one person to another, many observable differences vary from individual to individual, thus being a designer that is more dominant in one area over another. Being a visual designer is taking your own natural abilities, experiences, preferences, likes and dislikes and applying them appropriately to communicate the objective at hand. The one thing that remains consistent from designer to designer is the objective, but how we solve that is completely respondent to how we are wired. Information is in everything, surrounding us on a micro level all the way to a macro level. You can approach a problem from the end to the begining or vice versa. It is being a visual designer that makes all of this information exciting and keeps me coming back for more. Taking a objective and looking at it from all directions is fascinating and always proves to teach something new about not only yourself but the world around you.

01 WHITE AND GREY DO MATTER.

OBJECTIVE / Develop an conference based around the idea of experimental typography and design a book, schedule, mailer, name badge and poster to intrigue and engage the audience in attendance.

PROCESS / In a scientific context, an experiment is a test of an idea; a set of actions performed to prove or disprove a hypothesis. Experimentation in this sense is an empirical approach to knowledge that lays a foundation upon which others can build. It requires all measurements to be made objectively under controlled conditions, which allows the procedure to be repeated by others, thus proving that a phenomenon occurs after a certain action, and that the phenomenon does not occur in the absence of the action. My approach to this project was to break down the way people think and how they approach design problems. Designerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predominantly think either with the left side of their brain or right side of their brain. My goal was to show how each designer, left or right, would handle a given problem and the solution that would follow. The solutions that were to be discovered both lead to a visual form of communicating the same problem but with different priorities all of which make design engaging.

It requires all measurements to be made objectively under controlled conditions, which allows the procedure to be repeated by others, thus proving that a phenomenon occurs after a certain action, and that the phenomenon does not occur in the absence of the action. My approach to this project was to break down the way people think and how they approach design problems. Designerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predominantly think either with the left side of their brain or right side of their brain. My goal was to show how each designer, left or right, would handle a given problem and the solution that would follow. The solutions that were to be discovered both lead to a visual form of communicating the same problem but with different priorities all of which make design engaging.
