So, our first co_LAB experiment is finally drawing to a close. We have seen some great ideas and concepts being generated over the past three weeks, and are really keen to continue this culture of collaboration. With that in mind, we kicked things off by setting the teams a number of ‘post-workshop’ tasks:
1 – Finish any creative outputs relating to your projects (mock-up videos, website/blog, visualisations, etc.)
2 – Write an overview of your concept for publication on the blog – this should outline what the concept is, address issues of usability/functionality, discuss how the concept relates to the brief and how this was developed. Finally, offer an evaluation of the project and working process.
3 – Complete the evaluation form.
4 – Continue to co_LABorate with each other.
The rest of the day was focussed on developing the visual branding for concepts, with teams putting the finishing touches to the posters. The room was a ‘hive’ of activity, with lots of great design work being generated.
The workshop culminated with each group presenting their posters, with feedback being provided by both staff and students.
