The following design sketches chronologically document our thought processes as well as issues we have been thinking about through the course of our research. The visualisations here are mostly static but intend to help initiate, solve and take our concepts and ideas further.

Please note that the quality of the images are reduced.

   Phase 01 - Lets think on paper!

   Phase 02 - Abstract representation of a palette of groups with other groups

   Phase 03 - Starting to think about the relationship of groups and the people

   Phase 04 - Exploring representations of an individual and their characteristics

   Phase 05 - Macro view of newsgroups as confined shapes

   Phase 06 - Macro view of newsgroups as rings of circles composed of smaller shapes

   Phase 07 - How do groups cluster together?

   Phase 08 - Macro, medium, and micro/individual levels

   Phase 09 - How do we think about different environments?

   Phase 10 - Thinking about traffic interactions with streaming and showering metaphors

   Phase 11 - Starting to understand type as image for patterning

   Phase 12 - Exploring the legibility of text to create a legible environment

   Phase 13 - [warning: 391MB] Use of motion in creating a legible environment
