CHRISTINA GOWER

Hello! I’m Christina. I am hardworking, imaginative, reliable but most of all, I have a positive mindset. Also, I love a challenge and learning new skills. I work well and effectively in both a team and individual setting. Over my time at university, I completed my work during typical working hours, I have met every strict deadline as well as trained myself to de-construct briefs in order to analyse all the details.  In my free time I’ll most likely be found outdoors, hiking, reading or simply enjoying my surroundings. However, if it’s a rainy day I motivate myself to learn new skills or software. 

 

Forest Feat

As an individual who enjoys being amongst nature, I decided to base my major project on the forest. When I started this project, Covid lockdowns were a huge factor of influence. I recognised that individuals needed a reason to be outdoors. Research and evidence suggest that being amongst nature is good for your physical health and mental well-being. However, finding ways for people to engage with nature is the problem. This sparked my ideation: I need to design something to encourage people to spend time and interact with the forest.  I designed an unconventional, interactive activity book, which encourages families to spend time with each other in the natural environment. The activities are designed for children aged 5-11 and the book is designed for families. I designed 30 activities which fit into 5 different categories. Each activity is unique and enjoyable, they vary to suit the needs and desires of many users. Towards the start of the book, I created a list with the activity number and the category that it belongs into. This will allow the user to choose and prepare which activities they want to undertake,therefore making the whole experience that little bit better and easier. I picked colour directly from photographs to make the illustrations more accurate and easier to recognise. The colour was imperfectly placed behind the lines for aesthetic purposes.
