A.23 DIY Phone Speaker

Today I began sketching ideas for the DIY Phone speaker gif. What I have in mind is essentially a quick vector transition from form to form. Something that would stylistically look like this:

Below are my sketches, there are many ingenious ways to amplify the sound from your mobile with objects found around the house. I chose the glass tumbler, the toilet roll tube, the coffee cup and the beer cans.

Thinking about the way they will all transition into each other depends heavily on the order. Here in my storyboard, I established one and elected to cut out the toilet roll tube model and instead incorporate that into the beer can model.


On the phone screen, i’d like to display an equaliser to help sell the idea quickly (as this will be only 4 seconds long). From the Jailbreaker gif, i’ve learned that considering something like what to display on a mobile screen is a decision best made at the beginning of a project.


These sketches are super crude, but this gif will have a quick turnover and all the assets will be rebuilt in Illustrator. So its good enough to enable the beginning of my production
