When my teacher introduced this assignment to the class, she explained it as a how to booklet. We had to explain how to do something in seven panels. We could do it anyway we wanted but the words had to say something the pictures did not and vice versa.
During the discover phase we were asked to come up with three ideas explaining three different ways of how to do something. We had to choose from those three ideas and then we had complete the first three steps.
During the design phase we were asked to complete as much as we could. I completed the whole thing but my colors looked a little off. So I waited to ask my teacher what she thought.
When I showed my teacher my colors she also decided that they looked a little off. We went through some quick color pallets and both decided to go with a more muted color choice.
When everything was said and done we had the panels printed and we cut them out with an exacto knife. We folded them and then presented them as an accordion booklet.
