Subject research

The purpose of subject research was to rapidly generate visual ideas to accompany and support the script.

I two immediate needs:

Visual chart to generate ideas

I experimented with visual charts as part of an Illustration 2 assignment. It’s a process for rapidly generating ideas.


  1. Draw a grid on a sheet of paper 6 x boxes by 6 x boxes of equal sizes
  2. Extract the six most important themes from your topic or text.
  3. Write these down the left hand side of the grid
  4. Create rapid thumbnails in response to each subject heading in turn
  5. Duration of exercise 1-hour

What happened

I started by identifying themes.

I took the themes into the visual chart.

The output formed the basis for further idea/image development.
