Evaluation and Reflection:
1) Visual Communication:
In what ways does the visual communication/message of the piece meet the needs of the brief?
I tried to give the visual communication by showing a right image for the front cover magazine where it does seems to attract to the audience which it’s about Punk with a striking and rough image.
In what ways does the visual communication/message of the piece fail to meet the needs of the brief?
Well not giving the right information and image to the audience to understand what it’s talking about.
What are the strengths of the visual communication? Why?
Using an appropriate image and language to interact with the audience and make it understandable so people won’t get confuse like for example on my front cover design it’s used a drawing “side portrait” with a nohak hair look from punks.
What are the weaknesses of the visual communication? Why?
Not demonstrating a direct communication to the audience and that might fail the image of a visual communication.
In what practical ways could the piece be developed or improved?
Well I did some Internet, magazine and book research and it gave me a lot of information from what I was looking for so then I became to analize and came with the idea of developing ideas to decide which one of them I will choose for my final design.
2) Reflection of own working practices:
Be very honest with yourself in this section. Please feel free to approach a member of staff for help finding ways to develop skills.
How was my time keeping?
My time was a bit stressful because I found a lot of information and was getting confuse myself in which area to start but I guess I did a good job at the end of the design.
How was my analysis of the brief?
Analysising my research has showed me a variety of ideas and for then I came with the idea of using my own drawing to give a right visual communication.
How did I use research to generate and develop ideas?
Having enough to research to get ideas and influences by other people so I can come up with my own ideas.
How did I use experimentation during the project? How can I make this more effective?
Experimenting the chosen drawing on photoshop and illustrator to come out with new styles and colours.
In what ways did I show that I had achieved the Learning Outcomes? How can I improve this next time?
Maybe If I used a natural pain on top as I used a spray plain on top of portrait side layer and add more material on it.
What parts of the project did I enjoy most? Why was this the case?
To generate ideas and start designing because I like to demonstrate a different experimentation on the program.
What parts of the project did I enjoy least? Why was this the case?
Like I said before research has confused me a bit because apart of having a lot of research has made me view a lot of different ideas and didn’t know how to start.
At what times did I work best? Why might this be the case? How can I ensure that I work well at al times?
Starting to design my final design and to analyze different experiments which I enjoy more doing straight to the point.
What areas inspired me? Why was this the case? How could I follow these up?
Some of the 70s magazine covers and illustrations from punk has inspired me on a way I did on my front cover design because I know it could been difficult back in the days but I tried to use a similiar idea and to produce it as a striking image.
What areas were challenging or difficult? Why was this the case?
To make sure that the guide lines and columns where right in order to add the body text on the inside cover information.
