In the past Privacy means to close your door at home but for a smart home it doesn't matter.

Sketch 1 (1,500 characters)

at first I made some scribbles to become a clear mind about the way of describing a smart home and to define my perspective. Then I decided to make a flat design, to symbolize the simple way of a smart home and to reflect the modern art. After I designed the background I wanted to find a way to symbolize the transparent walls in a smart home because of the big amount of hacking possibility. Finally I convert the broken glass and wall cracks into fuzziness to symbolize the transparent door.

What have you learned through this sketching process? (1,000 characters)

I learned to design in different colors and to be free in the way of symbolize different security aspects. For example the modern design of color gradient to symbolize different security areas in a flat design.

Very nice!!!!
Maybe you can improve it painting a mobile in the door, their similar, to say that the mobile is the door to your live and secrets

Thanks! That’s a great inspiration. I will think about this idea.

Great concept. My favorite part is actually your caption -- "In the past Privacy means to close your door at home but for a smart home it doesn't matter." I feel like if you can make this really clear as the point of the illustration, you've got something. A transparent door is a scary thought that doesn't have to be visually ugly, so it's really great for this.

Thank you very much! Yes I thought the normal thing like a door changes their everyday functionality but it doesn’t changes the external appearance.
