Magazine, posters examples




Looking at my research am thinking of doing

Book research

Going to the library and found some ideas for a final major I came with the idea of doing e


This morning we been told that we are going to start with our new brief called Final major were we suppose to choose anything we like or inspired for a final major.

For our start we went to the library and choose “Communication arts” books to look up some ideas.

So I have come with some ideas of doing an Editorial layout, photography or maybe doing a poster.







For my final major I have decided on doing a poster (volley ball) plus a promotional jumper design and this case I will have to think about the audience who are most interested.
The audience is for people who are into sports like adults, teens, preschoolers, men and women.
I will do a volleyball campaign for educational about health and fitness for everyone like kids, youths and adults.
My first step is to draw a brainstorm so I can start what to do and then I will have come up with the research such on the Internet, library and actual magazines out in the shops to get ideas and more information about it.
Then to draw layout thumbnails and many sketches as I can to get more ideas so I can go forward on to Illustration and InDesign.
Doing a poster design I would like to use some illustration, photography, use typography depending on the style of layout and colour.
The idea is to have it clear and show my best.

Reflection and evaluation

How was my time keeping?
I think I managed all well by researching and getting my ideas from it.
How was my analysis of the brief?
It was a difficult to understand but then I came with the idea of starting my research and evaluate my ideas.
How was my research?
It was interesting since I didn’t know some  information and I was intrigued to know more.
In what ways did I show that I had achieved the Learning Outcomes? How can I improve this next time?
I think I have give it all from research, analyze, development and final design.
What parts of the project did I enjoy most? Why was this the case?
I enjoyed visiting the exhibitions looking at work from other people experiences and inspiration also the research about my decision of designing a bottle.
What parts of the project did I enjoy least? Why was this the case?
It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it but I was able to handle what the brief was saying.
At what times did I work best? Why might this be the case? How can I ensure that I work well at all times?
I think at the development stage were I came with different ideas of “polka dots” using different positions.
What areas inspired me? Why was this the case? How could I follow these up?
In this case Paul Smith inspired me in a way how he used colours and come up with the idea of designing a bottle were I think its creative and unique and that’s why I came with the idea of doing well representing Great Britain “polka dot” colours to the bottle.
