Today we had a class presentation of each of our most recent or developed designs for our subculture illustrations and and spreads. Each of us took it in turns to show our prototype designs to the class to receive any useful criticism about their appearances and quality towards the project goal.
For my illustration, everyone seemed to like the design of my original idea of having a simplistic-styled steampunker with a pipe boarder, compared to the close-up version without the boarder. they did mention to maybe try to move the title to the bottom of the page so that it is not in the way of the Creative Review logo/title when it is put onto the page.
The spread, while not fully created into InDesign, received generally good views such as how they liked the idea of it sharing the same boarder style and background, preventing it from drifting off the illustrations design.
Thanks to this little presentation, I have gained a bit more knowledge on what people like from the designs, and what areas need the most improvement. This will help me know which parts of the illustration and spread to edit for the upcoming final presentation.
