Do you think there’s life out there in other planets?
This is one of the biggest questions science has yet to answer. Since launching the first person in 1961, we have not only sent unmanned probes into space, but we’ve also mapped the Milky Way, recorded the birth of stars, and even found out recent knowledge about black holes.
There’s definitely more than meets the eye out there in the vastness of the universe.
What’s in space?
Space isn’t empty. Aside from our own Milky Way galaxy, there are hundreds if not thousands of galaxies, just like ours. 400 million stars are born per day inside nebulae. Asteroids and meteorites float around the universe. And of course, there are the scary black holes where even light cannot escape.
Our own advances in technology have allowed us to contribute something to space as well: satellites and space crafts. NASA has sent ‘explorers’ like Dawn (currently around the dwarf planet Ceres) and New Horizons (first to explore Pluto) to help us understand more about space and its many objects.
How to create futuristic designs
Designing for the future is more than adding special effects or a cool background – it’s about design that lasts.
Think about the stuff you’ve studied or have been inspired by as a designer. Most of them were created or have foundations as far back as the 11th century. These artists and innovators understood the context of great design, making their works not only last well beyond their years, but also inspiring generations.
In order to create a futuristic design, you should first have a plan. Who is your intended audience? Where will your output be displayed? How will it reflect your message? Ask the necessary questions for they will be the basis of your work.
Second, come up with a solution to a traditional process. Designers also need to be innovators if they want to be closer to the future. For example: for years, people have been using coupons to get discounts during shopping. With everything going digital nowadays, you can design online coupons that anyone can simply collect in an app, or use on any device (e.g. computers, laptops, tablets, etc.).
Lastly, make sure it works. Make a draft or prototype and test it out. Ask members of your target audience for their honest opinion. Can they understand it? How does it look and feel? Can they see themselves using it? How well can they recall it? Test and test until you get your desired results.
