DESIGN PROCESS

My design inspiration comes from spam calls in September. I just arrived in the United States at the end of August . I received the spam call only two minutes after I got the US phone number, which is completely different from China. Although there are spam calls in China, they are not so frequent. I was curious why someone would know the new phone number when I got it, so I summarized the region and time of the spam call I received in September.

Final Version

For my final version, I started from a vibrating phone, which represents I got a lot of spam calls throughout the day. According to my first version map, I draw the different shapes of states representing the regions I received the spam calls in September. The number of layers stands for the total number the states gave me the spam calls. At the bottom of the image, I drew the contents of the spam calls. To add a stronger visual effect, I added some flies as a metaphor for Spam calls, symbolizing that these calls affect my life like flies every day.
