In order to clarify exactly what my aims are (and how to achieve them) when designing the displays for the Shrewsbury cases, I’ve had a go at mind mapping. I did this in school and found it a bit useless. I need a way of presenting my ideas in a clear and visual way, however. Not only that: I need to have a packaged idea ready to pass on to someone should I leave my traineeship earlier than expected, or if the project gets delayed and I cannot work on it throughout the whole process.
There are many free sites that offer mind mapping but I found them hit and miss. I finally settled on one that looked nice and was conducive to easy learning and a clear message. This is my first attempt and although I’m not entirely satisfied with it, it’s fairly easy to read. Remember, it’s free.
Have a look below and let me know what you think. Have you had any success with mind mapping before? Is there a more effective way to achieve what I’m trying to do? What could be done differently?
