• constraint


In total, you should have 12 images, 6 analogue

examples and 6 digital examples. Some examples

may be applicable to multiple principles, but you

should find a unique example for each principle.

Your examples cannot be the same as examples

used in our assigned readings nor in slides from class

presentations. You should source your own unique

you have taken yourself. Examples should capture an

example that’s main interaction is not digital. An

example with a digital component is acceptable, as

Digital examples should be screenshots, preferably

that you have taken yourself. Screenshots can come

from any device (i.e. laptop, phone, tablet,

digital) that exemplify that principle. Below each

image write a brief 2-3 sentence (d) explanation of

image and why it is a good example of the
