LightBox Reflection – Product Design

For my LightBox, I was challenged to create it, and add the place that is my thinking to my LightBox – A small City. This “Small” City is just for my Whimsical thinking, and it don’t have prototype.

As you see, My product has some little(or big?)  problems. Im gonna explain why these problems happen.

First, William, why your LED’s are just put with no cover???And where’s your paints????????????????????


The Answer is, I want to make my product like this. First, why I just put LED with no cover? I want this City to be like a Cities with heavy light pollution, and for no color. In this City, the only thing most citizens can do is work. In order to survive, they worked until 9pm. When they got home, they were very tired and couldn’t do anything. Because if you work very little, you can’t maintain your current life.

This city is a portrayal of many cities now. The light pollution is serious and there is no color in City. Everyday life is going to work and leaving get off work, and nothing. Life is not happy, Everyone is constantly working to survive. Everyday you wake up, you going to work every day, and get reprimand from your boss, and go home very late. You can’t do anything, you don’t have any time, you can’t feel enjoy and happy. It is good to have money, but sometimes it is not happy and worth at all, if these money used so many happiness and enjoy. But no one have choice to throw your work out, if you lost work you can’t get thing that let you survive. Even I add a sun to this small world, how many people in this world can always see it? So what I want to do is to portray some cities in today.

Also, When I was making this LightBox, I was thinking to make a bright City, but after a while I give up. The first version of this work did not have the sun because I thought that people in the city could not see the sun, so there was no need to add it. Later, I still added a sun to it. I want to ridicule those companies that have to work until 9 pm, maybe only their boss can see it. Squeezing your employees’ time to work for you can indeed increase the company’s profits, but if your company is large, these profits are enough. Why do you still do this? For more money? But what else can this money do?

Most layers made of Abode Illustrator. Creating specifically sized shapes, joining two shapes together, and image tracing/expanding are three examples, etc. New Skill √
