This week we are finishing up Project #2.
Tuesday is a work day where I will be available to help you work out your final issues for the project. See the checklist below to make sure you have met all the criteria of the project.
Thursday will be a small group critique day where we will be reviewing prototypes of the work. The idea here is that you have printed your project and experimented with form and therefore see any potential problems you might have with the design and/or form.
After our group critiques, we will be use the rest of the day for work time.
Reminder of Goals/Checklist:
Goal: Learning and participating in the practice of postmoder design through finding connections and creating a reinterpretation of historical visual forms with new popular culture references to communicate specific message
Does you work have some recognizable connection to one or more of the past history periods discussed?
Are you able to discuss those connections in terms of visual illustrative style, typography, form?
How is your design postmodern?
Goal: Use of typographic form and styling that both matches and is integrated with your original illustrative style and appropriately and efficiently communicate messages
What type face did you choose? What historical period is it referencing? Why is it a good choice for this design? Is it integrated into the imagery?
Goal: Learning how to choose the right medium for a message? What form best suits delivery of message? How can you use the chosen application to increase the impact of the message?
What form did you choose and why? Is it interactive? Why is it more of an experience for the user?
Do your choices in terms of style and form make sense for the intended audience of the piece? In other words, would that particular age group, socioeconomic group, etc. relate to the imagery, type and form chosen?
How is your design more intriguing than what is normally seen for like products? What did you do to think bigger and in more contemporary terms?
Monday/Tuesday: We will check our work more formally. We will talk about formal issues in terms of type, form, medium chosen.
Wednesday/Thursday: Final Critique and Turn in of Work
