DEGREE PROJECT // WEEK ONE

How can graphic design be used represent a Serbian family's development through economical/social changes in a visual narrative contrasted with key points in Serbia's history teach/showcase to viewers(needs to be much specific)? 
 
So far this process has been a little overwhelming(what project isn't in the first stages) but I think I am now on the right track. I had the time and chance to complete video interviews with the family I am going to be "researching." I have started making a timeline of important moment's in Belgrade's history. Possible things that will line up or have had an impact on the Damonvic family. My main concern right now is the audience. I know I am getting closer, the more that I mind map and complete the timeline I think I am getting somewhere. I could see this project used for a classroom researching world history but it wouldn't be the typical textbook information. By having a family as part of my research I think facts become more real for people. I remember studying something in school, and the only things that ever really lasted with me where things that where closely related to people. What if learning history was done with a direct comparison all of the time. It was done through a family so that students would put themselves in that situation. I could see it being done for a lot of other countries as well. I think this is done a lot during WWII. I think we all know and understand WWII so well because we have so many detailed stories about that time and what families had to do to survive.

I have been thinking about this so much everyday and the more that I do I believe there is a bigger message I am trying to portray then just facts and numbers and information about this family. I may be getting ahead of myself, but I remember coming home and telling my sisters about this family and how surprised they were by some of the things I was telling them.

My Next Steps
Continue Mind Mapping and filling out the timeline I have started.
I want to construct more questions for the family now that I have a better idea of where I am going with my research. The questions I asked when I recorded them where somewhat general so I need to become more specific. I want to also start profiles for each family member.
