Sketch 1 (1,500 characters)

In this first sketch, we can see a woman walking. Under the umbrella, there's a background representing her "private life" (IG photos, documents, files, informations etc.). The umbrella cover them, through her daily life, represented by the path she's following. We can imagine a background made of pictures such as a house, an office, a family etc. The sky is actually made of concept representing the attempts to infiltrate her private informations. For the next next, we should be able to visually represent this 3 categories and define what they are made of.

Sketch 2 (1,500 characters)

This mood board allow us to think about the 3 categories and what content they should have. How to describe them ? What images can we use to make the viewer understand the concept ? How can we describe visually concepts and ideas ? We have to think about it, and deepen this moodboard to find the best representation ways.

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

I learning that there's a big difference between about something and creating a first representation of it without being cliché. It's difficult to find something creative and and find a creative way to explore it and to deepen it.

Tell us more about you. (1,000 characters)

I'm a French girl, born and raised in Paris, living close to the Canal St Martin. I'm telling you this first, because this area of Paris is my main source of inspiration, I love this city more than everything. Every year, I'm discovering new things, places, concepts to entertain myself, and it never stops to amaze me. Otherwise, I'm 26, working in a digital event agency. I'm always doing something, if it's not work, it's spending time with my friends, having a photoshoot, working on personal projects, tinkering furnitures etc. I'm a real Parisian cliché, actually !

Why are you participating in this Challenge? (750 characters)

I'm a french graduate in Business Administration and Entrepreneurship... nothing about cybersecurity at all ! But to explain you my current situation, I'd an accident 1 month ago and I've been bedridden since then, so I have plenty of time in my hands. A friend woking in cyber security told me about this challenge : I spend lot of time on Photoshop creating collage and "weird art" so I thought it might be a great opportunity for me to participate to this challenge, and focusing myself on more "serious" work.

The umbrella idea fits really great. As it represents the small area some try to protect, you could picture a "rain storm" of google, facebook and other logos blasting away the umbrella or making holes into it. (Sooner or later I get sued for using their logos without permission ;)
But you could keep it abstract, like using "social media", "fake news" or "phishing mails" invading the privacy.
