Light switch covers
Light switch covers reactions
Last week the Visual Communication class interviewed residents at Global Village for the second time, but this time with a different purpose. Students were looking for undergraduate students’ reactions to the light switch cover created for the sustainability project.
Many giggles were heard that evening. While some really seemed to like it, others found it quite polemical. One student said, “It might be a little bit too controversial for some people but I would use it.” This same student compared the poster (also created by the graduate class) to the light switch cover by saying, “It basically gives me the same energy consumption and sexual message as the light switch.”
Another student said she would definitely use the switch cover because it was funny and it was a good reminder because it would be seen everyday. Others said that they were more likely to turn off their lights because of the cover. One student said every time he saw the cover he would say, “That poor guy, let me help him out.”
Following the interviews, graduate students agreed the light switch covers were the most controversial of all the designs for this project.
