For the first day of Design Week in #DS106 I decided to try my first DS106 Assignment. I chose Design Assignment #1048, which was to ” Make an invitation for any event, whether it occur or not.”
I created an invitation to a meeting that I was trapped in last week. We were invited to join a colleague who was participating in a board meeting at a remote site via Video Conference, but there must have been a problem with the connection because we kept loosing the audio. During the two and a half hour meeting we only heard about 5% of what was said.
In keeping with the theme of Design I kept my invitation very simple, creating a mood with lines and my choice of font that contrasted with the details about the event itself. Fortunately there was a Wi-Fi connection so I was able to clear a lot of messages out of both of my inboxes; I just added that detail to add to the mood of the invitation.
