What did you learn today?
Today I learned about the process of beginning a project with a client. We worked on starting research to help with brainstorming concepts. This included how to clearly sketch out concepts for the client to review easily. I also learned about the printing process when finishing the deliverables, how to contact and explain project details to the printer, and what to look out for when thinking about the final print(crop marks, test printing).
What were your challenges?
My challenges were making sure to push and use the full last hour to work on final touches for the poster project. I managed to add and work on all 3 concepts until review after making sure to finalize my chosen design. With the Pantone project, I’m trying to make sure not to brainstorm too much on ideas for the deliverable so that I will have enough time to fully complete the project on time. I’m using the breaks and timeframes given to help set those times I need to stop and finish up sketching.
How did you help each other?
We helped each other on what final touches we could try out for the poster project; some things we could try on different bodies of text. As well as looking out for small details to check up on, like the alignments of text boxes, bars, and elements. We also talked slightly about what we were brainstorming for the Pantone project, checking to see if what we were heading towards was a good start to jump off with.
