We began this assignment by using a voting method, which consisted of each team member using colored dots as an indication of their impressions of each project idea (pink dots indicated a negative impression, while green ones signaled that of a positive association).

Lastly, we critiqued the ideas by encouraging each member share his/her own opinion — this allowed each member to voice specific issues.

After coming up with word combinations, we began brainstorming project ideas. The ideas varied from interesting, respectable, solid, crappy and even ridiculous. However, the ideas were pretty bland when put up against Octobox standards.
