Colour Palette for Wayfinding

ISHINO RESPONSE:
1) Am unsure what colour stands for what group?
A) pls specify and note in the ‘comment’ area below & post which colours are meant for what group.

2) There are Three Major Groups- Grids, Multiplicities & Museums, AND Six smaller groups- TCC/Bike Lanes, Dundas Square/Chinatown, AGO/ Queen West.
A) So there seems to be too many- 3 not 5, OR not enough 5 vs the needed 6.

So if you could address this in your palette sent to me, it would be much appreciated.

thnx! ci

Chinatown Poster Draft

China Town Poster- Draft

Pls add the following to your posters as ‘body copy’ i.e. smaller than headline.
& we’ll post all of them this FRIDAY, DEC 2nd after class, eh?

OCCUPY THE PUBLIC SPHERE
Design Department
TEL Building, 4006- 4th Floor
Image & Influence, FA YSDN 3106A

[OPTIONAL] Names of members of your group, list alphabetically

ISHINO’S RESPONSE

Looks good &… is reflective of your installation idea @ China Town w red strings & pix of individuals- good!

I suggest you add:
1) more specific location of display i.e. Design Department, 4006
2) title of entire class project- OCCUPY THE PUBLIC SPHERE
3) Class Info: Image & Influence, FA YSDN 3106A
4) Your area’s stance in relationship to Habermas’ notion of the ‘Public Sphere’ such as ?

Toronto’s China Town is comprised of ‘mom & pop’ stores that have been started one place at a time. Therefore, this organic [visual imagery] development, over a span of ? years, has created an atmosphere reflective more of ‘Private Spheres’ situated inside the overall & larger [& influential] ‘Public Sphere’ that now comprises China Town. Also, the stories of the people, who live & work in this part of the City, are tales of individuals who have travelled long distances & overcome many obstacles to become a part of today’s Chinatown.

BOLD TYPE ABOVE ADDED LATER TO CLARIFY CONNECTION TO CLASS, IMAGE & INFLUENCE. BY CI.
