I have just received my Formative feedback from my Tutor and am pleased to learn that he liked my work.
This project like all the others I have had so far have been great learning-curves both in angle and in a sense of achievement. All good.
Fortune was smiling on me when I set-up this shot as I simply filled the waste-paper bin of paper rubbish that I had rescued from our recycling bin and the sales brochure with JUST YOU happened to find it’s way to the top of the heap or I may have most likely not noticed it!
My Tutor comments on the text captions and choice of various font size. When I came to printing I simply went by what I thought looked right. This worked for this occasion; but I take my Tutors point and must not make this a habit.
My Tutor commented on the image with the Mars bar, that the word BELIEVE on the Mars wrapper was a little too obvious. On reflection, I would probably agree. However, this was not a trick of Photoshop the Mars packaging was genuinely labelled BELIEVE on all the bars that came out of a family-pack of six Mars bars purchased from a supermarket.
My Tutors comment regarding the last two images being portrait rather than landscape is also an interesting comment to remember. I did not realize that the change in framing format would make a difference and therefore this is something I must try to keep in mind for future projects going forward.
The last image that I produced in colour, I had intentionally wanted the colour to be a dominant green to represent growth, hope and a new start (green for go). However, again his comments are all useful and his suggested idea for an alternative image is good and simple.
I still have a lot to learn about printing; but my first attempt was acceptable at least and again I appreciate my Tutors advice.
One area of my study that I have neglected is visiting exhibitions and taking advantage of study days. This I will start address from next week going-forward.
Also I appear to not be fully meeting my colleges strict copyright code, again this I need to address.
I am relieved that my assignment passed and that I can concentrate on my next assignment.
