Contextual Design | Warm up Exercise

This is a series of contextual design learning logs for Creative Design module. In this page, I will write about some warm up exercises we did in the class.


Warm Up Exercise

Some times we were given a warm up exercise at the beginning of the class. An exercise was given when (it seemed) we have to do some creative work during the class.


Introduce yourself to a person next me

This exercise was given the first day at the class when not many students knew each others. After the exercise, we had to introduce a profile of the person who they introduced with.

This exercise then flow into mobile app design idea project.


Draw a person next to me

We watched Ted talk show about quick drawing as a warmup exercise and how it gets funny. We were given a short period of time (probably couple of minutes) to finish the drawing. I draw a student called Mat and I think I did quite well. I wish I had Mat’s drawing of me because it was very funny.


Draw randomly around a keyword

I forgot the occasion for this exercise but remember that I was confused. I didn’t understand why I was doing it and what to follow. I had drawn a cat when I questioned to the tutor and she said keep drawing. So I did without knowing why. Probably it was not important to know why as it was a warm up exercise.
