Dot to Dot connection is a wayfind and signage project for a software company where the navigation through the offices was difficult. Inspired by the software technology I created this lines that are connected by dots that bring some creativity to the place.
Every line starts from a signage and has a specific color and sign. These lines go throw out the whole office. And you can easily follow them. When the line stops it means that you arrived at your destination.
New District Detroit is an entertainment district located in Midtown Detroit. This was a group project in where my position was to create the signage and wayfinding design in which the visitors would be guided throughout the district. I created these big color-coded modules which the color is related to a certain building of the arena and the signage present what you can find into that building.
The modules are created as being building legos that can be moved around and be utilized by the visitors to sit, play and build while they visit the place.
The wedding pavilion was inspired by the Albanian wedding ceremony. Day and Night as a process are very important during the ceremony. Inspired by that, I adapted the day and night with lights and shadows.
Techtonic object was a project in with we had to create an object out of 3 words( slender, asymmetrical and tall), and build the object with 3 different materials: chipboard, foam, and nylon.
“Play Art Detroit” is a connected route that encourages play, discovery and engagement between the general public and Detroit street art.
By nature of its history and composition, Detroit is a driving city. For this reason, people miss a lot of what is happening around them when they are traveling within the city.
Additionally, Detroit has become one of the most dynamic centers of street art in the country. The city’s street art is often found in vacant spaces away from traffic.
These are not always simply beautiful finished work: Detroit’s street art also communicates the artist’s perspective about social and political issues, and the medium has the potential to communicate to a large audience.
“Play Art Detroit” is a bike route that directs cyclists to discover this street art, while also encouraging play and interaction through installations of geometric blocks that are placed along the route.
These geometric blocks are a combination of three colors and three shapes: yellow, red and blue, as well as triangle, square and circle, and therefore resemble the toy blocks that we play with when we are very young.
As one of the most basic components of child play, toy blocks help children to increase their knowledge about the world and facilitate their interactions with other children.
The blocks in “Play Art Detroit” are designed to serve a similar function to the one that toy blocks serve in child play, that of exploration and bonding with one’s environment and friends. The blocks will be placed in specific locations where street art is found and are intended for public interaction. People can move them around, using them as building blocks, playing with them, or even sit on them.
By following the route marked by these blocks, cyclists will not only be directed to visit some of Detroit’s most celebrated street art landmarks, but they will also be prompted to spend more time on these locations by interacting with these shapes, and potentially also involve others in their play.
By encouraging the general public to get out of their cars in order to discover street art on bikes, and also by encouraging people to stop and interact with these geometric blocks, “Play Art Detroit” will help to strengthen the individuals’ connection with their city as well as the relationship between the art community and the general public, ultimately contributing to the revitalization of Detroit.
