For this exercise I have identified my client for my imaginary micro-dwelling. I have imagined what my client would do throughout a typical day at home and written these points down.
I have also created a mind map with my characters’ attributes, my character is a 45 year old male, widowed and living alone.
This process was great fun to do. Initially it was obvious for me to create a single adult female, not just because I myself am female but I thought it would be easier to create an imaginary character based partly on myself. This was a chance for me to think differently, by creating a male character gave me chance to look at life from a slightly different angle, from a male point of view, although a lot of the attributes can be either male or female, I’m hoping that this is the start of a process where I might think out of the box a little more.

Assignment Four: The Double Diamond – Discover
For Assignment Four I have referred to the exercise where I identified my Client and I have written about their background, what they do now and what I think they might be doing in 10 years time. I have presented each three parts as detailed paragraphs of about 250 words.
My initial thought process with this assignment was to create storyboards, probably because I enjoyed creating the most recent storyboards. I then thought that maybe I could do with some more practise with how I describe situations, how I get the information and ideas from my brain onto paper, this process isn’t always an easy one, and so it made more sense to give it a go.
I’m really glad that I did, the words just seemed to flow, I enjoyed this process and understand the reasons for doing so. It gives you a better understanding of your Client, leading then to create the best design you possibly could with that information. A very thought provoking task.
