    i have to annotate my designs and decorative tech but i dont know what to talk about ? how shall i annotate them ? i have to submit this tomorrow ?help plz


    Do you mean you are annotating designs you have made yourself? I'm assuming the subject is design technology-related, but either way, annotations should do a number of things which include:

    - why you chose to draw/make the design the way it is (for example, why this colour, why this shape, why this style, etc)
    - how it may be beneficial to the user (for example, if you designed a chair, how would this solve certain problems, why would the consumer want to purchase this, etc)
    - possibly how you were inspired and where your inspiration came from (for example, maybe you were inspired by a cultural style, maybe you realised that there was a gap in the market, or you realised there was a problem with a previous/current products)

    I hope this helps as I'm not really sure what you are annotating, but annotations should provide information to the reader so they can have a bit of insight into your thought-process. It should also make things clear to them when they view/read your work. Take care
