KIRKCALDY will have the basic reference map on one side and space on the other side to enable participants to DRAW or WRITE their VISION or IDEA in a visual or written way, for the specific site identified in the public participation event(s).

MY THINKING BEHIND THE POSTCARD DESIGN

MY THINKING BEHIND THE POSTCARD DESIGN

a mindmapping exercise to draw ideas and think out what the POSTCARDS from KIRKCALDY are really about. They need to be simple. They need to be eye-catching and engaging to enable people and participants, whether they be identified stakeholders ( user groups), or just impromptu people who are interested in what the POSTCARDSfromKIRKCALDY are all about.
What questions should they be posing for people to contribute their own thinking of ideas for spaces in the town of KIRKCALDY ?
Each POSTCARD will be specific to a particular space, but they all need to be linked or matched in some way.
The next few posts will profile the postcard method for public engagement and the design of the cards and their final form will be determined through this process.
