PROJECT #2 Identity & Systems / Fall 2013 Designing temporary transformation


UNIVERS 45 LIGHT 55 ROMAN
8 pt / 11 pt - HEADERS / SUBHEADERS / QUOTES ADAPTING TO CHANGING LOCATIONS DESIGN SYSTEM FOR ADAPTATION

10 pt / 12 pt - bodytext

The design system for Kairos identity revolves around transformation to incorporate the existing elements of the country it is currently in. This example uses the United States as the current host to Kairos.
United States Map

The bodytext is larger than the header/subheader/quote to signify importance of information over identity

These are basic transformable elements that are dependent on an existing design system of another entity. The circle is a stand-in for another basic symbol/shape (i.e. star, square, triangle). The Waveline is a stand-in for dimensionality and movement. These basic elements when repeated, combined, and arranged based on an existing country, creates interesting and meaningful symbols.

Kairos basic symbol

Kairos complex symbol meaning collapsibility

US / Kairos identity

A separate journal discusses possible combinations based on the basic elements through the Bednose diagram as well as the four different stages where typography, dimension, and color is added to the design system.

I used an element/symbol from Kairos that communicates the idea of collapsibility when arranged in a complex manner. I incorporated this arrangement inside the outline of the American map to combine the two nations together.
