At MAKE, we believe that everybody is an artist. Art is a powerful tool that helps us to understand and express ourselves better in a way that is not always possible through words. MAKE helps you navigate your feelings and make sense of the world through art and guided reflection. With every box you receive, we learn more about you and personalise your boxes further, tailoring the experience to your personality and interests. Through time and with Machine Learning we will be able to help you uncover undiscovered skills.
About your results
[THESE RESULTS ARE JUST A SAMPLE]
Thank you for filling-out the pre-assessment! That gave us an understanding of your needs to personalise this MAKER box.
Here are the results of your pre-assessment:
- You want to identify and express your feelings.
- You want to explore your self-development.
- You want to deepen your social skills and relationships with others.
Based on your results your personality type is:
How to read this graph.
There are 5 traits that we are testing, these are Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness and Neuroticism. The OCEAN test or the BIG 5 test is a taxonomy of personality which describes aspects of it depending on human behaviour rather than neuropsychology.
The graph shows the extremes of the scale e.g; Openness deals with either being inventive and curious or consistent and conscious. Conscientiousness with being efficient and organized or easy-going and careless. And so on. This doesn't mean that one end is better than the other one, this is just a map of how you tend to behave most of the times.
ABOUT YOU- Based on your answers, you seem to be more pragmatic and data-driven, and you tend to be more cautious when a new opportunity arises. You are efficient and organised, value being by yourself and tend to be more reserved. You are friendly and compassionate with others and have big confidence in yourself.

Why this particular box?
Based on the results of your pre-assessment, we've chosen this box.
The materials contained in your MAKER BOX fall into the PERCEPTIVE / AFFECTIVE category. They are made to help you identify and express inner emotions that can be hidden, abstract or difficult to describe and understand.
The materials in this category, inspire awareness of form, line, colour, limits, boundaries and other structural qualities of art that can help you to understand how your emotions are structured. The experience provides the opportunity to explore these complex and sometimes overwhelming emotions through art.

One last thing....
A treat from MAKE! Inside your box, you will find a collectible emotion card. Collect it to get back at it or use it as inspiration for your artwork. You decide.
Let's get started!
This is your experience. We provide a structure and guidance but you can always get creative and change the order! We divided the experience into three different audios. The whole experience will take a minimum of 20 minutes and it can take as long as you want.
Between each audio, you have a chance to paint or you can do so while listening to the audio. You can paint by building on each previous painting, the final product will be a combination of all the different ideas that you came across during the 3 audios (basically what some artists and musicians call a Gesamtkunstwerk or a “Total Work of Art”)
When you’re ready, start the first audio.

Please hit this link to record your process and self-reflect on the activity. Self-reflection is fundamental for building on your experiences. It might be weird at first, but through time you will do it more naturally.
