Inspired by Method: Creative Tools for the Design Process
What is inspiration? Can there be a method for finding inspiration? Inspired by Method is both a guide to and a source of inspiration.
Designing involves individuality and a systematic approach, which we may apply consciously or subconsciously, depending on the project. The 5D-method for inspiration, created by author Alexandra Martini, is an incisive tool that you can use in any design process. It takes away the fear of starting a new project. This method uses the following five dimensions: Formal-Aesthetic Dimension, Haptic Dimension, Production Dimension, Cultural Dimension and Interactive Dimension. It will help you analyze, experiment with and realize your ideas. The first phase of the book will get you started. The second phase encourages you to experiment and explore more unexpected and unusual paths.
Inspired by Method provides orientation, guidance and methodology for all budding creatives who are involved with design and who want to build their portfolio while developing their skills. Includes essays on teamwork, visualization tools and methods, along with more than 35 hands-on exercises.
