THE BRIEF

Design a complete visual communication system of your choice based on the theme of "Water". Submit three deliverables of your choice (print, websites, videos, installations etc) depending on which medium is suitable and appropriate to communicate your idea.  
 

APPROACH

I started out broadly by researching on the definitions of water and eventually chanced upon an article on the significance of different types of water that appear in our dreams. This was the point of entry to my project, when I started reading up on what type of water dreams signified which specific meaning it could possibly be i.e. when we dream of rain it could be a state of melancholy we are feeling etc and how dreams are actually translated from what we see and hear in our actual daily lives, processed by our brains and eventually appear as what we see in our dreams. The idea of dreams are also very vague in our heads as we often tend to forget our dreams the moment we wake up hence, DECODE is an app that provides a platform for its users to understand themselves better as a person so that they can have better control of their life by understanding their own dreams.

DECODE is an all-in-one app designed for dreamers to allow them to better understand themselves through 1) recording their dreams, 2) experiencing lucid dreaming, and 3) reading about interpretations of their dream symbols and what it could possibly mean/signify in their waking life.

 

Mobile Application

The website promotes the DECODE application by highlighting star functions of the app which can possibly appeal to dreamers or potential users of this app.

The mobile application functions as a all-in-one dream package for its dreamers. It encompasses the following functions:

  • Dream Journal that allows users to record down their dreams by either voice recording, writing or drawing
  • Stimulating and experiencing lucid dreaming through soundscapes
  • Recurring dream symbols and their interpretations/symbolism
  • Dream cloud that serves as a platform for users to share their dreams, read about other fellow users’ dreams and comment on their posts, to basically connect with other fellow dreamers  – with the option of anonymity
  • Dream dictionary to allow users to read about possible interpretations and symbolisms of what their dreams mean or signify in their waking state
