I am going to create a DIY KAWS skateboard because kaws is a brand that has created many cool designs that I like.

the biggest challenge I’m going to face is probably going be is finding the shape of the things I’m going to draw.

my target audience with is my classmates because I know them very well and they have the same interest as me.

I’m first going to draw all my designs on a piece

DIY KAWS Skateboard

For this Ignite week project, I choose creativity and innovation because I’m always interested in creating and designing new things and creativity is something that it’s worth it to improve on. I thought I grew in this area because I can now solve more problems by myself before I don’t really solve the problem myself, I ask other people to help me with it. One example of how I used problem-solving was when I was working on the spray paint part of my final piece, the fading effect was very hard to make but I came up with a good idea and solved it. I found it challenging to learn how to make a fading effect with spray paint this week. I think that this skill will benefit me in the future because the fading effect is something that will take your art piece into another level and when I make something in the future, this will make my art pieces different from others. Overall, this Ignite week helped me grow because I got to fully express myself art form and so I got to know to myself better about how I’m good at part of the drawing and needs improvement on some other parts.

DIY custom skateboard

I will create a “KAWS” design skateboard because “KAWS” is one of my favorite designer brand, the reason I like it is because all the “KAWS” designs are so cool and creative.

I think the most challenging part of this project is to put something that both fit the pattern and design for the deck and a message that’s meaningful.

My target audiences are my classmates because I know that they have the same interest with me and which my project will draw their attention.

I will create my custom deck by first drawing a rough draft of the design that I like, and then draw a much detailed draft to prepare for the final draft on the deck, then it’s the making of the final piece.

Ignite week 2018

Who is your audience?

 

  • My audience or user can be anyone because everyone can use it.

 

What is their problem or need?

 

  • I noticed they need it to have a plenty of boxes just so it has enough space to contain all the phones.

 

What is your inspiration?

  • I was inspired by a few pictures from Google and also a phone container in one of my extra class classroom.
  • I hope I am able to make it actually useful somehow in my classroom just like the one I in my extra class classroom.

 

What is challenging?

  • However, I think it might be difficult to make it look good because this is my first time to make something like this.

 

 

 

Materials and Techniques

 

  • During this project, I will need to use acrylic and cardboard.
  • I will need to learn how to use adobe illustrator and how to draw an accurate graph or a blueprint for my project.

Feedback

  • I got my ideas by doing a bit of Brainstorm and then I drew a couple of ideas down.
  • I will test it by putting it in the FA space and see if it’s good enough or not.

 

 

 

Make-Test-Refine:

  • Looking at my first and second prototype, I noticed that it got much more accurate and clean.
  • One of the biggest challenges was keeping working at the same speed.
  • I struggled using Adobe illustrator because it was really confusing for me.
  • After getting feedback from my user, I learned that it’s not really useful because we only made 5 slots for five phones.

 

 

REFLECT

 

  • Looking back on this project, I learned how to use illustrator and how to design an accurate graph.
  • Knowing what I know now, I would use my time more wisely because we could have made a few more.
  • The mistake I learned from the most was not using my time wisely.
  • One skills I think I can use in the future is how to use the adobe illustrator because I’m definitely going to use a laser cutter in the future.
  • One thing I am proud of is how I actually made my product clean and good looking with acrylic.

 

 

 

End of Project Consume post

Overview of the project:

When I first studied about and learned about plastic for this project in my mind, recycling is the only thing that can change our world and if we recycle, everything will be better, but when I studied more deeply about how to make our world a better place, I realized how the best and the only way to make a completely sustainable change is to stop using plastics. The more people that buy plastics, the more plastics will be produced based on costumers want.

Feedback reflection:

Recycling won’t fix all the problems, it won’t be completely sustainable. They were surprised by how much plastics are produced each year. Yes, because my audience said to me that their family already stopped buying single used things and that’s the best way to start saving our world.

They learned how if you don’t recycle, the plastics will end up in a landfill or an ocean garbage patch, and even if you recycle the recycling factory will still harm the environment because of the air pollution produced by it. I will add more facts to show how much plastic is harming the environment and so more of my audience will realize how big the problem, just like how some of the YouTube videos and other writings that changed my mind.

Reflection to the driving questions:

In my opinion, the relationship between consumption and sustainability is the amount of things that you consume and what you consume makes it either sustainable or not. It’s the consumption of goods or services’ impact on the environment, economy and society. We can make a sustainable change by stop using single use plastics in your daily life, use reusable things. And this is something that won’t impact you a lot, but if everyone start doing it then the positive impact on the environment will be unimaginable.

 

 

 

 

Make it Develop and Plan

 

We thought of making a phone container using acrylic or wood. First, we made a prototype out of cardboard. Making the prototype taught us that it’s hard to think of way to add the slats.

After sharing our prototype we got the following feedback:

  • Make sure that the container doesn’t take too much space.
  • Make it possible for us to charge while we’re putting phones in there?

In order to design our box, we measured an iPhone X and used MakerCase. Makercase helped us figure out how to connect the pieces together.

 

 

Make it Define and Inquire

My audience or user is people who bring their phone into class illegally.

I noticed that people sometimes use their phone in class for class work, and then so they have to go to their lockers to get it, so in my opinion, I need to make a box that you can put your phone in when you come into class.

  • I was inspired by a phone container in my SSAT classroom.
  • I hope I am able to make it very useful instead of just focusing the look of it.
  • However, I think it might be difficult to finish the whole thing because making a phone container will be a big deal.

magical Farming tool

During this ignite week our team which includes Me and Felix Li decide to work on developing new tools to help the people who’re working on a farm easier. After some serious discussion between me and Felix and sometimes the teacher, we decide to work on a tool that can make the workers work while standing up so their back won’t hurt as much as before (working while banding down.) We worked pretty successfully throughout the project, we made what we planned to make without too much trouble. But one of the biggest trouble we had while we were working is that we made our first prototype, but it’s not what we want so we made our second prototype and we added them together so it will work better. I improved on taking other people’s advice which was my L21 goal.
