This was the last opportunity to find out what my peers thought of my designs and ideas, I got the opportunity to ask the questions that I wanted to. I went into this crit mainly to decide on whether I should create a desk tidy to do into my kit, also which stock I should use.
The Questions I asked;
Which stock do you prefer?
Should I include more information or stick with simple images?
Desk tidy or no desk tidy?
What would work best with a poster?
Should my poster be screen printed or stick to digital print?
- Definitely prefer the lighter green and beige backgrounds stock colours - the blue is too dark
- No desk tidy, don't think it would add to the kit.
- If the illustrations are as good as the pug drawing then it might be nice sticking to the slogan and image format and making a large poster series for them.
- Pearl grey stock
- No desk tidy
- The illustrations are really effective as they are now, if information was going to be added it should only be a small amount.
- Pug illustration would be a really engaging if it was screen printed.
- Consider using lighter stock so the image and text is more clear.
- try the desk tidy at the end if you have time.
- Consider a thick stock if the booklet isn't going to be that thick.
- Definitely use the lighter stock to create more impact on the illustrations.
- Desk tidy may not be very effective.
- Experiment with content for on the back of the pages, the publication will become more readable.
- I like the idea of the blogs listed too.
What I took from this crit;
- I have decided that it would be better if I use the lighter stock, and maybe include another coloured stock for the front and back cover.
- Don't put the desk tidy in if people don't think that it will be very effective, it might be a waste of time.
- Definitely try doing some screen printing, try using the pug.
- Keep my publication simple, simple designs and simple text.
