The idea is to create a creative tube map, bound to the creative tube journey mobile app.
Where people can share their journeys (feelings, insights, pics, statements, thoughts...)
CONNECTIVITY, LOCATIONAL MEANING, MAPPING AS A CREATIVE JOURNEY...
CREATIVE TUBE MAP ---------> BOUND TO --------> MOBILE APP (You can also use this at the computer)
WHAT IS IT? It is a redesign of the tube map in a creative way (this initiative starts in London, but it is supposed to be all around the world). What does creative way mean? ----> with sketches, draws (for example a draw in each station, something that identify that place), creative statements, positive words... around the tube lines. This is bound to a mobile app, which allows people to get in touch. DEVELOPING THE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN EVERYBODY.
WHAT IS ITS CONTEXT?
WHO? Everybody can use it. But as this project, it is specially for young people or even adult people interested in be more creative confident in their own life.
WHERE? The map is placed at each tube station. And the app is for the smartphones.
WHEN? When you want, when you are taking the tube or even when you come out home and you know where are you going, yo use the app.
HOW DOES IT WORKS?
1.The creative tube map (poster and leaflet for all the users) would be placed in all the tube stations (like it is now). Each station could have (besides the general tube map) its own creative map, with draws and sketches about what you should visit or see in that station.
2. The app (this part is better explain in the pictures below) ------> In the app appears the general creative tube map (the same that is placed at each station). Then there you can choose the station you want: in that station it would appear information (always in a creative and original way) about interesting places to visit there, creative things to do there, How can that place inspires you?
Moreover you can send and SHARE to that 'place', 'that station folder' statements abut that place (your insights, inspirations...), sketches, thoughts like-------> Where are you going? Which stop? What are you going to do there? What is your favourite place there? How do you feel today? This could inspire people who read it, WHY? Because it is like telling stories, sharing ideas... everything you want.
WHY IS A GOOD IDEA? Because connects a lot of people. CONNECTING, COMMUNICATE, SHARING...
CONCLUSION: CREATIVE TUBE MAP= The creative tube poster map and leaflet + App mobile creative tube connections.
There is the possibility to create a quiz for the general map, I mean the map can be changed each year with the best sketches or statements that people sent to the app during the year.
DEVELOPS: Please tell me what do you think about this opinions? If I should incorporate them?:
-Creative collaboration for tube posters/artwork.
-Could this be somehow integrated with tourism?
-Is there a way you could add a filter or something, so you can input your interests so it only shows stuff you will like?
-Can there be a chance for people´s collaborative drawings or photos to come together? Maybe people can make their tube map... and this can be seen on the London underground like a small exhibition for travelers.
-You don't want to create a new creative tube map, but use the tube map creatively! by creating/ sharing/ suggesting...
-You could also allow to draw maps over other places (expand it to countries, flights, that are connecting people all over the world etc).
- Will there any monthly or yearly reward?
- How can you make sure everyone gets involve? Because people will be busy.
- Why not record the participant by having their customize up feature on the site for more exposure?
