'My Space'... Creating the final piece.

I think this is where my final idea is starting to come together. I really liked this idea and developed it in lots of different ways until I settled with one.
I had to create 2 a3 potential final designs using photoshop. Both were created from sketches in the folder. I did choose 2 completly different ones but I like the top one better than I like the bottom one. I think the composition of the top one is alot stronger however, still alot of room for improvement.
I've gone on the design few more ideas to try and improve my favourite design from the previous page. With feedback from my tutors aswell as my own thoughts I came up with a few different ways I could improve my poster.
I created some of my new improved designs on photoshop. Only with little bits that I changed, so you might not be able to see but the bottom one is eventually where I wanted to get to and I'm happy with my final design.

This is my final poster, printed as a3 on luster paper. I'm so happy with the way it has turned out. I think making everything come out of the wheel instead of just using it to frame the photo works brilliantly! The way the the ivy is coming out then goes back in leads you to the dog where he comes back out of the wheel, then you're lead back in and out again with the tree! It really leads your eys across the page.

'My Space' Designs.

As you can see I've used a range of different types of artists which I put together and used different elements and ideas from each one to create something new and interesting! I feel alot more confident on the project already rather than the last one. I'm confortable with the process, comfortable with the rough sketches, and getting more comfortable with the fast pace of working. I really pleased with my range of ideas so far.

'Zine' Designs... Finals and mounted!

As you can see I've improved my designs again since the last time I worked on the computer, using feedback I recieved from different people. I am really pleased with the way they have turned out and I think this project has really widened my knowledge about Indesign.

'Zine' Designs... Working on the computer.

I'd never used Indesign before this, and with the help from Jeff I created the top design for my DPS. I can still work on it to improve it but for a first attempt I was very pease with the way it turned out!
The second design I did on the computer was the Hello and Welcome one. As a first design I think it worked well, however, the photo I used turned out pixelated so I definetly need to change that. There is still room for improvement though.

Working on the computer still, I've tried to improve my DPS about travel. I recieved some good feedback about these from Jess and peers and feedback in ways I could slightly improve these again for my final. I think hese designs are definelty getting there though and I am starting to enjoy and feel more comfortable using Indesign.

'Zine' Ideas

 These are a few more designs for my Zine DPS and the introductionto the 2nd brief with a few designs. I'm starting to feel more comfortable with my rough sketches and estimating the right amount of text.

More designs for the 2nd breif - the Hello and Welcome DPS. I definetly feel alot more confident with designing on a smaller scale now too. I am finding it alot easier.
Working on the final part of the 2nd brief - The front cover. I think this was probably the easiest task to do because theres not as much to think about with allignments of text, this is why I left it until last. I was also trying to make sure that the Hello and Welcome DPS and the front cover looked like the belonged to the same magazine, so I tried to add element which would pair the 2 designs!
