All of this research can flow into final artifacts in different ways. The key design problem is finding the intersection of what I find inspiring, what other people find interesting, and what makes sense. So far, I’ve shortlisted the following outputs:
An encyclopedia and digital notebook for this project allowing experimentation, charting inspiration, prototyping, and recording all the work completed for this project.

A set of identification cards practitioners can use as they go about their day, acting as both flash cards and design tool allowing exploration of new typology combinations.
