In what ways does the visual communication/message of the piece meet the needs of the brief?
I think for my both postcards I have showed a specific message like on my first postcard about Gill sans typeface I gave the colours and the structure of the letter “g” type in a outline “g” and a silhouette style in a white colour.
Then I add a black background which gets the people to attract the letter “g” with the background, that gives the message of also using blue and red colour for the characteristics of Gill Sans font from the London underground colours.
For the second postcard about Geoffroy Tory I have come with a simple classic black and white colour to make it historical how the brief specified so for that I used the right image to make it visual and to give the curious image how the letterform was made by Goffrey Tory.
In what ways does the visual communication/message of the piece fail to meet the needs of the brief?
For some reason for my first postcard I did not use a graphical or a drawing outline on the typefaces so I think on that part it fail on not having that on my postcard.
What are the strengths of the visual communication? Why?
For my first postcard gives the attraction to their colours and the layout of each section of the letter “g” and for my second postcard I
What are the weaknesses of the visual communication? Why?
In what ways could the piece be mis-read or mis-understood by the audience? Be specific about who the audience is.
The audience for my postcards therefore people who are into art, design and typography for adults, students, designers, artists, typographer who will be interested on typography so for that I think I tried to give a right detail of typeface to show about Gill Sans and to not confuse the audience observing other specifications.
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?
Was a bit stressful because I wanted to understand the Gill Sans typeface by researching to get inform as much as I can and it did took me a while so for then I started to develop my ideas and then I did manage to do my final piece.
How was my analysis of the brief?
A bit confusing to design the first postcard but then I kept experimenting to come out with the right choice.
How was my research?
Was a bit tough and confusing because I had many research and didn’t know from where to start
How did I draw conclusions from my research?
From my research I have come with certain ideas and to start analyzing a few examples from research to come up with my own ideas for my final piece.
How did I use research to generate and develop ideas?
By visualizing different kind of examples as posters and postcards to give me the influence to develop my own ideas.
How did I use evaluations to help with my ideas generation and development?
I kept experimenting with my ideas and continued doing annotations.
How did I use experimentation during the project? How can I make this more effective?
Using Illustrator gave me the exploration to make more experimentation to each one of my ideas so for then I have come with the right choose and make it understanding.
In what ways did I show that I had achieved the Learning Outcomes? How can I improve this next time?
Giving the right research and exploring ideas from other people so I can visualize and get my initial idea, to improve for the next time I guess I should of done more illustration development.
What parts of the project did I enjoy most? Why was this the case?
I enjoy the information from my typeface and the design progress because I wanted to show a visual message as the information from the artist who did the Gill sans font.
What parts of the project did I enjoy least? Why was this the case?
When I printed out my first postcard and it did not come right because I used a blue dark colour on the characteristic font and for then I was not pleased but for that I kept on mind that experimenting gives a new try and better idea.
At what times did I work best? Why might this be the case? How can I ensure that I work well at all times?
The times I work best it’s in designing and experiment in each category.
What areas inspired me? Why was this the case? How could I follow these up?
From my first postcard and by the Gill sans information the London underground inspired me with their colours and to be able to show a message to my postcard including the typeface.
What areas were challenging or difficult? Why was this the case?
To think about how I was going to do my design on my postcards so I had to go through my quick sketches to choose the right one and to start development them.
How can I go about developing and improving the parts I found difficult?
To choose the right one and be able to show development of my progress.
