The project began by choosing a mass produced product and researching how this product was made. The object I chose was a coffee filter. Through the research process. I listed seven steps used to create a coffee filter. Once listing the steps to create the object, I then sketched various methods of representing the steps visually. In my illustrations, I explored the principles of gestalt and semiotics. From these sketches, I then began the process of digitizing my sketches in Adobe Illustrator. During the course of this project, I challenged myself to use illustrations exclusively, rather than type. After critique, I revised my illustrations to make them more clear. Once completing the illustrations I then created elements that made the illustrations cohesive. The final illustrations were printed on five-inch by eight-inch sheets and then made into an accordion book.
