Chris Somerville: Thesis Paper Outline

Visual Prototype Version I


The development of visual prototype 1 was directed by my initial thesis research and visual influence of my topic, social media. I am not only interested in the social impact of social media on the mental development of an individual, but I am also intrigued by cleverness of design of the social media icons, and interface design of hand gesture driven software. The current contemporary look of the soft gradient and simple shapes can be combined to have very strong narrative design. Unfortunately there is no current connection with my thesis. At this moment I was struggling with the terms electronic media and social-media. Things where to general or too vague.
