Methods & Processes Project 1: Merging

‘Constant Meaning: appearance being shaped by the context’

For this project we need to firstly find an interesting sign or find a local situation that needs a sign. Then we will need to redesign the sign we choose by considering how it would change in different contexts, those being: Global, Local, Official, Unofficial, High Vernacular, Low Vernacular.

To research, first I went around Education City, snapping photos of interesting looking signs. The next day I left the house soon after sunrise (the only available time that I had during the daylight) to take photos around Doha. Overall, I took around 50 photos, here are a few of the most interesting:
