Discover Stage: I learned that precision is important when cutting wood and that there are many different tools to cut wood. I learned that cutting acrylic sheets are more difficult than wood since it is thicker, more hazards,  while being fragile as well .When dealing with glass. There were different safety precautions for differing tools. For instance, when it came to the bandsaw, students would have to position their fingers in a certain way which you don’t get injured. With the driver drill, you had to position your hands where wind isn’t expelled from the machine, you’d also have to lock the drill when you wanted to pass it along to a fellow student.

Define Stage: Before preparing the wood and the acrylic, we first had to learn the each and every one of the tools available to ensure safety precautions and that we know how to use the. Like what to do, what not do, and how to use them to produce a proficient result. Tools used to prepare the wood and acrylic were: Rulers, Pencils, Sharpies, Bandsaw, Drill/hole-saw, Jigsaw, Tape, and also protective lining Some limitations and constraints that were mentioned before like the time constraints being that we were only allowed to use the classroom which was the source of all the tools. Also, not all the wood pieces were measured exactly. Nor are all of the acrylic pieces. The glue made the blocks slide overnight so the layers wouldn’t be even the next day.

Develop Stage: As for materials to make this design possible I will need the bandsaw, glue, and the drill. I might not be able to curve the edges of the wood like i wanted to but at-least i got the base of the structure down.

Deliver Stage: I believe my finished work does meet all the requirements. I used all available materials to create my cube.


ISMAEL SANOGO – designprocess_worksheet_ScreenPrint


What did you learn about Screen printing and the cut paper stencil method?

  • How to find the correct areas to cut so that the picture is clear.

What are 2 other screen printing methods?

  • Drawing Fluid, Photo Emulsion

What tools do you need to use for screen printing?

  • Squeegee, Frame, Shirt, Stencil, Ink.

Define Stage

What were the initial steps in creating and preparing the image that you chose to print? 

  • Steps taken to prepare the original image i chose was turning the image black and white. Then i created islands, which are bridges between the black spots with white lines. Thus creating an area to cut into.

Was it digital? Was it by hand? Was it both? 

  • It was Digital.

Is it necessary for the image to be prepared digitally in order to create a stencil?

  • No, we could have used a drawing and then we could cut out the shaded parts.

What are islands? How did you solve this problem?

  • Islands are the areas of a picture where, when cut, would leave and open hole where there shouldn’t be one. I solved this by tweaking the black with the white.


What were the safety hazards & precautions in using the tools? Be specific.

  • I had to be careful with the excato-knifes and the heat gun as to not cut or burn myself, I used caution during this.

Write any problems you have and any changes you made to your designs and why.

  • I had a problem with the shield, most importantly with the island, but I fixed it using outlines


Does your designs meet the requirements?

My design did meet all my requirements. Though I had islands which messed up and caused an overall bigger island in the wing. So i just used tape, which resulted in my stencil being in great ship and working perfectly while screen printing. But after the screen printing process, I  burnt some parts of my Phoenix and dropped some paint and smudged dots of wet paint on the shirt which resulted in the design looking kind of messy

Compare your design to the requirements you listed in define stage.

Ismael Sanogo- Design Process : Type Sculpture


What did you learn about the anatomy of typography? What are the some of the specific parts of a letterform?

  • The only thing i think i learned about typography would be the legs, and the spine. In particular the legs that come in use of Serifs, and the spine which almost all letters have like an S

Which visual design elements does typography use? Explain how.

  • You could use the legs to provide a stand for the letters which can provide balance. The spine can also be used to provide a slick look visually

What lettering style did you use to design your sculpture?

  • I started building a C but halfway I found that it can also be looked upon as a D


What are the 2 main elements that your type sculpture are being graded on (criteria)?

  • Curves, how 3D it looks, and I assume serifs

What were the materials needed to build your type sculpture? What tools did you use?

  • The materials I used were Cardboard, Scissors, Box cutter, Mod Podge, Tape of various kinds, also paper cutouts.

What were the constraints (limitations) in building your type sculpture with low tech and no tech?

  • The tape wasn’t working, it was trash, it IS trash. My model had slim curves, and


List any additional materials (cardstock, wood, plexiglass, or sheet metal, etc.) and supplies (tools) that you need to complete your design.

What problems have you come across when developing your sculpture?

  • My fingers couldn’t fit in certain areas. The glue was sticky yet not, the spine of my letter wouldn’t remain straight.


Compare your design to the criteria that you listed in discover & define stages. Does it meet all of the requirements? Explain how. If not, what didn’t it meet and why not?

  • In discover I covered all the criteria points, but with the define portion (Non-existent) i couldn’t complete it, because it was never completed and is TOTALLY non-existent

What changes could you have made to improve your design?

  • I could’ve actually drew part 4, but besides that i could have fixed the curve spine of my letter


In the end, my letter looked more like a D instead of a C but it still looked good

Final Game Posts

I don’t remember the link for the cte site so I don’t know what to put in each post. Even if I did I don’t think it would be somewhat measurable, I’m just submitting something in hopes that it would somewhat manage to give me a 65. Sorry for wasting your time.

Conditionals and Converses

If your on the wrestling team you play a sport. Conditional.

If you play a sport, your on the wrestling team. Converse.

Converse is false because there are way more sports than just wrestling.





If you slap a child, they will feel pain. Conditional

If a child is in pain, it was slapped. Converse.

Converse is falls because getting slapped isn’t the only source/ reason for pain.





If your phone is on the battery is depleting.Conditional

If your phone battery is depleting, your phone is on. Converse

In this case, both makes sense. Since your using your phone and the phones power source is the battery, you are draining said phone of power.

Test the solution

The first test with my car was successful. The egg didn’t crack in anyway. My car met almost all the constraints of the project, the only problem was the fact that the cars length was 1.5cm over the designated length.

Synthesize and analyze feedback

My partner told me to balance the car out because it tends to tilt when rolling down. Also he told me to use less tape, because it makes the car unappealing.

Revise the solution

Due to my egg not cracking during the egg car race, next time i’d take into consideration how the car looks. Because of all the tape the car was unappealing. Also i would fix the fact that the wheels were tilted. Because of the wheels changed the direction in which the car was going.
