Creative Brief 1: Conceptual Map of Edinburgh
You are to create a conceptual map for an area of Edinburgh of your choosing. The map does not have to be a map in the conventional sense, you are encouraged to think about your map in a more abstract form. You can be as creative as you like with the area for example; it could be the whole city, a street, a park or a specific building.
A conceptual map is a way of showing your chosen area using a theme (such as colours, data, objects) that is not normally thought about when thinking about an area. Your finished map should be obvious in what your chosen concept is.
As well as a map, you are to submit a minimum 5-page Ideas Book. This book must include the following headings: Background/Theme (min. 1 page), Influences (min. 1 page), My Ideas (min 2 pages) My Chosen Idea and Why (min. 1 Page)
Detailed technical specifications of the submission are outlined further down in this document.
You are to choose one area of Edinburgh, it can be a small or large area
