Reflection and Evaluation

Evaluation and Reflection:

1) Visual Communication:

In what ways does the visual communication/message of the piece meet the needs of the brief?

Demonstrating a clear visual image and easy to read for the audience.

In what ways could the piece be mis-read or mis-understood by the audience?

Maybe if I had more illustration to it? but I wanted to have my web design in black and white .

 

2) Reflection of own working practices:

How was my time keeping?

Not bad just worrying to much on the design progress.

How was my analysis of the brief?

It was ok but I was a bit afraid of not be able to design how I wanted but at the end I choose a design whether was simple and easy for me to develop at the wix site.

How was my research?

Was ok and I enjoyed it but I did struggle of having lots of ideas

How did I use research to generate and develop ideas?

Research, sketches and designing.

In what ways did I show that I had achieved the Learning Outcomes? How can I improve this next time?

Maybe if I understood more about how to design a website through Dreamweaver would be better.

What parts of the project did I enjoy most? Why was this the case?

Designing on to the final design

What parts of the project did I enjoy least? Why was this the case?

It was difficult for me to use other programs such as Dreamweaver and be able to use the html.

Final Design

MY WEB DESIGN: http://www.carydesigns.wix.com/carydesigns

Using the “www.wix.com” website to design my site for my homepage I decided to use a photograph in the middle of the homepage and on the previous pages using a white background only using the formal images on section “portfolio” by only scrolling up and down and selecting an image will zoom in the image.

 

Development Design

From my sketches I came with the idea of making my own logo and produce it on Illustrator as you can see I have demonstrate the design step by step.

As I started to draw an oval shape to come out with a variation of ovals in the same shape, I wanted to create the letter “C” so I could attach the word “Cary Designs” using the typeface called “Santa Fe LET Plain:1.0”.

I to choose the “Santa Fe LET Plain:1.0” because it’s quite modern and calm then I decided to give a colour whether it would suit to the web design so at the end of the day I chose he black colour logo to go on my final.

From my start I chose “www.wix.com” because it was easier for me to develop my ideas since I have never done a web design using dreamweaver so that’s why I have decided to use this method to develop my final design.

From then I started to give a clean and fresh logo onto my web design as using plain white background with a layout of horizontal lines at the top and on the bottom of the site.

For the portfolio page I have decided to use a quote before clicking to the next section as “Graphic Design or Photography”.

Some of the sketches I did to come up with ideas as you can see I have include the logo, selection (home, portfolio, contact etc).
