This week I finished revising my posters, printed out the final ones, and have them mounted and hanging ready for people to come visit my exhibit this week.
I created a title image for my display and assembled the paper drops I’ve been talking about for one of my charts.
I created a feedback sheet that I can pass out to my visitors so that I can easily review and compile the feedback in my final process book.
Here are the sheets they’ll be getting:

For today’s post I have just included links to each pdf so you can see the detail in each of them.
I have started putting together the designs for my drop shapes for my exhibit. Each drop shape will be printed out, mounted to foam core, and cut with a knife. Then they’ll be hung in my display. I know that I need to thin out some of my text.
One of my focuses this week was to create some graph drafts and brainstorm ideas of how I could make these look more interesting in my final presentation.
Here is the schedule that Group 2 has put together for weeks 9-14.
Here is a copy of the research table I filled out this week. I have 5 sources, including the website of the American Diabetes Association.
My 5 topics that will allow for data charts are
- The age ranges at which adults were diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes
- The percentage that were first misdiagnosed with Type 2
- Number of new diabetes cases per year
- Diabetes cases by race
- Cost of diabetes per year
Title: Type 1 Diabetes Information Design Exhibit
Based upon information gathered using IDEO’s Method Card research techniques, employing both secondary and primary research methods, I will create an information rich mini exhibit about Type 1 Diabetes. This display will include both quantitative and qualitative data and will show how combining design skills with compelling information can create an experience that can raise awareness about Type 1 Diabetes and the effects it can have on adults. My hope is to help people recognize the warning signs of diabetes, and consider the possibility that if they have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, they may in fact be Type 1.
Here are possible topics for my Information Exhibit.
- Homelessness of school age children (5-18) in WA state
- Adults age 30-60 going back to college in WA state
- Women developing type 1.5 diabetes (LADA) after having Gestational Diabetes in US
- Affects of screentime on kids ages 1-5 in US
- SAD in women in PNW
Some of these topics I have personal experience with. Some I just know they exist.
