For my Enrichment (Beauty and Wellness Product Design) I’m going to be making lip balm. This is the current lip balm I have that I am learning about and am using.
This is my prototype of my Handheld smell identifier for design. It is based of a Scanner tool from a game called Subnautica. It has a blue scanner part at the front and if you apply pressure to the held part, it activates the scanner. The part hanging off is part PDA to show data of scanned smells and a sort of camera view to show what smells are in the area.
In our first Product Design unit we were challenged to make something called a Lightbox, a small box that has a scene of a place or time, with some lights to brighten it up of course. For my Lightbox, I decided to make a small scene of the front of my house in Savannah, Georgia. I went there during the summer before COVID and I missed the place so I decided to make a lightbox version. To remind me of my relatives who live there, and home.
During this time I definitely learned how to use a app called adobe illustrator where could make cool designs like houses and all sorts of other cool shapes and things by using the power of adobe. After cutting it out with the laser cutter I painted the layers and eventually glued them together.
I wish I could do better by adding windows or more detail than some lines, doors and stairs. I wanted to do windows but they were too small and they burned to a crisp. I also wish I placed the lights somewhere else so it could show a bit better. I think if I had added clouds it would have made it more realistic. I think its a bit… Crude. Finally. I wish I used less glue on the back so it wouldn’t be as messy.
1: Emotions happen daily and are representations on how we feel, they can also help us out throughout our lives.
2: Research shows that when people are happy, they work better, or more efficiently instead of being lazier
3: Being happy matters, happy people normally have a happier and better lifestyle than sad or angry people.
4: Some people think that money is the key to happiness, its not. Most poor people are suffering from depression and are causing more suffering. However, the government is now depending on how happy people are, not how much money they’re making.
5: So in the end, trying to be happy, isn’t pointless, it can effect how you live and can make your life better. Happiness is important.
In the ‘Our Stories Make History’ I mostly enjoyed this project. I thought it was really cool how we took all of the projects we did during the Corona and put them into one, big, digital, scrapbook! I created a Thinglink with everything I did!
I organized my projects by my favorite ones. The first project was my favorite one and I had a lot of fun doing it. The last one is my least favorite one and I had the least fun doing it. I did this because I thought it was cool to show what I liked during this and didn’t like during this, the ups and downs basically.
How the Corona was like and what happened in it, my daily lifestyle and what I was like too. What I did, what feelings I had, where I went all kinds of things.
I am most proud of the ‘Our Stories Make History’ project. I feel proud of putting everything together and having all of this work in one thing, in one scrapbook! I think this was a fun project and would be fine with doing it again.
I found it a bit hard to find every single task and I had some problems with uploading some projects. I also had a bit of trouble managing everything and doing before the deadline. I wish I could try a few projects again so I could do better for them.
My favorite memory I have is in the summer when I go to my cousins’ house. This is my favorite memory because I love seeing them and they are really great people! I love them and they mean a lot to me and I visit them every summer. They impact my life by being nice to me and that makes me feel happy. I love seeing them in the summer and swimming in their pool. I think that it’s a great time to connect and talk to each other too.
