Description This assignment allows students to develop a visual and verbal thought process through diagramming and written communication. Students will create a personal design philosophy through the creative process of mind mapping.


Part 1 – Mind Mapping
Mind mapping is an effective way of getting information in and out of your brain and is a creative and logical means of note-taking mapping out your ideas. Create a one-page Mind Map that begins to explore your personal design philosophy (see Part 2). Utilize these steps to create your map: 1. Think of your general design direction, character, or possible achievements that you wish to make in design and write that down in the center of the page 2. Decide on sub-themes of your main idea and draw branches to them from the centre. 3. Ensure you use very short phrases or even single words versus long sentences. 4. Add images to invoke thought or get the message across better 5. Think of at least two main points for each sub-theme you created and create branches out to those

Part 2 – Personal Design Philosophy Defining a personal design philosophy assists in professional direction by focusing on your character, contributions and achievements. Students are to begin this assignment by creating a personal design philosophy statement that defines their character and future aspirations.

Create a short one paragraph (about 5 sentences) design philosophy that stems from your mind mapping created in Part 1. Be concise, yet generic enough that your philosophy can evolve throughout your professional career.

Once complete, upload your one-page mind map and your one paragraph design philosophy into one complete PDF document and save as:
