First Years, Fifth Project

'You have to understand it before you can design for it' is something we say a lot around these parts. That's because design is all about considering what you want to communicate to your audience and if you don't understand your subject, you won't have much to say about it!

With this in mind we asked the first year students to produce a digital instruction booklet that explained how something worked.

The 'somethings' chosen were mostly things that the Grillust™ team themselves don't understand. We are continuously looking to learn new things and thought in this instance the 'young pups' (students), could teach the 'old dogs' (tutors), new tricks.

Examples of things we don't understand include: magnets; glass; radio; the popularity of Chris Moyles and why people listen to the music of Coldplay.

Have a look at the following, you could learn something. You know what? Look & Learn... ...that's probably a very good name for an educational children's comic...
