'100 Ideas' - Year 1 Project

We've been concentrating all term on helping our First Year students develop their ability to generate multiple ideas and then get them down confidently on paper. They're coming along nicely thank you.

Here's a tricky little project designed to encourage lateral thought and a playful approach to visual problem solving. We gave the students four A3 sheets containing 100 empty frames, a fairly dull subject and asked them to produce 100 visual variations on the given object in a very short period of time. Here are a few examples for your delectation and amusement:

Rae Valters (21) of Year 1 Illustration chose a walking stick as her subject...

Debbie Nixon (21) of Year 1 Graphic Design, chose to explore the visual possibilities of a traffic cone...

Finally, Ricky Lowe (21) of Year 1 Illustration shows us what he can do with a skittle...
