As i’ve stated before, the reason I collect postcards is because I love to travel, and having a postcard for each place is a small sentiment and reminder of each place I have visited.
Whilst in the studio I decided to start thinking of ideas on where I could take this project and the route I want to lead it down. Here’s a few ideas I had at the beginning of the day:
- Memories from each place I collected a postcard from
- Travel magazine/book on tourist places in America – mainly picture book with typography and small info
- Create own postcards to go with travel book
- Postcards for people to save – layout so owner can write about memory at that place and stick a picture down
I talked to Derek and told him about my travel photograph book idea incorporated with postcards and stories from the places and he seemed to think it was a good idea, but later on in the day whilst explaining my idea to Margot she thought that it was too focused on my travels and not focused enough on my postcards, which initially is my taxonomy. Once again I was back at square one. After Margot calmed me down and told me not to panic she started to help me establish the categories in my postcards. (Hard to do seeing as I chose different postcards as I like variety, but eventually I did categories them which I will show in another post. Of course, there can be more than one theme of category, and I will explore that further on into the project.)
I came up with a mind map of all the different points I could put in the book.
