This is my design working from the results I got last night, but although it is a direct response to my audience and should reach them emotionally, I’m not sure it will.
The word is ‘Calm‘ and I have put so many of the answers (bubbles, headphones, socialising, drinking, walks and running) and some of my original thoughts (high pressure lines and waves) and this makes it so busy, the complete opposite to calm.
I tried to balance this out with a range of blues but I don’t think it worked.
I had my doubts when I was sketching the idea out but thought maybe I could make it less crowded digitally. Not sure I can, without loosing the concept of reaching a large audience base by integrating their answers into it.
I am disapointed it didn’t work because I did get so excited about it but nevermind, back to square one. If all else fails I can revisit the weather map concept.
