Project 4: Module 12 part 2

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:





Project 4: Schedule and Research

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

  1. The age ranges at which adults were diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes
  2. The percentage that were first misdiagnosed with Type 2
  3. Number of new diabetes cases per year
  4. Diabetes cases by race
  5. 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.

Project 3: Final App


This is my final LEGO app. The purpose of the app is to let users take a fun and quick quiz to determine the LEGO job they would love the most. On the second screen they are able to pick from one of 4 things they like best about LEGO. They are then taken to a screen with and image or graph about my LEGO set. The next screen describes the job best suited for them based on their choice. I also included a fun fact on each of the category and result screens.

Project 4: Topic Ideas

Here are possible topics for my Information Exhibit.

  1. Homelessness of school age children (5-18) in WA state
  2. Adults age 30-60 going back to college in WA state
  3. Women developing type 1.5 diabetes (LADA) after having Gestational Diabetes in US
  4. Affects of screentime on kids ages 1-5 in US
  5. SAD in women in PNW

Some of these topics I have personal experience with. Some I just know they exist.

Project 3: App Beginnings

I’m including one of my 2 wireframe sketches, and some of my app pages. As I have been putting these together, I realize that I need a bit more consistency between my chart styles. Some are still digital and some are actual photographs. But I’m liking their placement in the app, so I know I’m moving in the right direction.
