West Office Exhibition Design Field Trip

The west office field is definitely an eye opening experience for me. I loved it is office. That's the kind of design office I always dreamed about. They have large open space, they have a shop inside the office, and the office itself is well designed. I think the presentation is like reviewing what we are doing right now. I am glad that our design process is similar to theirs which means we are on the right track.
They also talked about looking for space and the very important thing is how the exhibition feels. It is like creating a mood. And also make the decision about the overall aesthetic for the show is important too. Then we will be able to figure out what kind of design will be more suitable for our show and what’s not. Then we can make choices for both the 2-D and 3-D designs.
I like their idea about use stories to communicate which client. They also know exactly what they want to do and what they don't want to. I think it is important for a designer to know what he wants to design, what his strength is and make the most use of it.
The models in the office are impressing. Seeing all the models is inspiring because our structure team is almost getting to the same phase about our design. It will be great if we can create some models for the overall structure.
