Hi John, I agree with Jean in that I think the first concept is the strongest and easiest to build on. (however, i 100% enjoyed the story of your trek in Africa) I like the idea of dispelling the idea that just covering up your keyboard as you type in your info is enough to protect yourself too. From experience, though, encryption can definitely be difficult to communicate visually. I think it would be interesting to think of the monitor in your sketch as a decoy screen or something in that same vein? Just something that communicates the misdirection and protection that encryption offers?
Thanks, Dima! I certainly agree with you as it relates to visually communicating the impact of these riddles. To be able to speak to that point and to push the concept further, I'd like to show how once the puzzle is solved, how consumers information is then revealed leaving us vulnerable to certain acts. So, maybe once one side of the rubiks cube is completed, it then reveals a person's address, payment info, etc. on the side of the cube? Ideas like this have me super excited to work on and submit a second iteration. Thanks so so much for the feedback and resources also! :)
