Review

Here is a list of the tasks fulfilled by each individual within the group:

My Contribution:

  • Content
  • Mock ups
  • Layout Design
  • Final Design

Rahul Patel:

  • Floor Plan idea (decided not used in final designs)
  • Printing

Rachel Philogene:

  • Illustrations 

Zoe Todd:

  • Presentation 

Siobhan Whittington:

  • Presentation 

Overall I think that the project went well, we produced something which fulfilled the requirements of the brief, as well as having a clear concept for the brochure. Also the client was enthusiastic about our final design. However there were some issues within the group, particularly in terms of work spread across the different members. We found it difficult to stick to the plan we had made originally, for each individual, due to unforeseen circumstances, as well as not having the means to meet up regularly, to discuss the work and make sure everyone was on task. Personally, I found myself doing a lot of the design work, from producing content (as part of showing our concept) to the final layout designs. It took up a lot of my time, but it has taught me that I need to be more assertive within a group; instead of taking a lot of the work from people, and doing it all myself. I need to push people to do their tasks, or make sure that the work is distributed fairly.

Project Analysis

Overview

I found this project interesting as it allowed me to gain knowledge about Adobe InDesign, especially with the small assignments which allowed me to gain practical experience working with stylesheets, alignment, spacing etc. I also learnt a lot about how to deal with typography, in which we learnt about the construction of a typeface, how type works with each, identifying typefaces and eras, and how to deal with type.

Further Ideas

To think about some more ideas about Cameron I decided to look at some articles:

Initial Ideas – Brainstorm

The Audience

There are many varied visitors to the museum, including families, tourists, fans and students. The most prominent groups who visit are the student groups from Europe, Russia and China. These groups usually have studied Dickens and therefore have extensive knowledge about his work and life. We thought that this group would focus on this area (fans and those with knowledge of Dickens) specifically, as they would be the most likely groups who would purchase the brochure,  in which we wanted to create something which really incorporated the Victorian era and reflected on his work and life.

The Brief

Due to problems within my group, ‘Pixelink’, I have been forced to change groups and am now working with 5 Creative. This group consists of Rahul Patel, Zoe Todd, Rachel Philogene and Siobhan Whittington. Both groups are working on the same live brief, so any thoughts or ideas which I have had on the following brief can be easily transferable. Here is a copy of the brief we were given:
