I swatched different colours available for screen print and decided that colours one and two would be best as they are quite contrasting therefore the red would stand out against the blue more than in my digital print outs.
I experimented with different colour combinations to see which stood out the most to the public. I was limited in the number of colours i could use in one poster as i was going to screen print the final version. I found that it was best to have the darker colours as the people and the lighter colour as the background as this meant you could see the pattern of people better. I asked my friends which one they preferred and they said they liked the original with blue and pink, although the blue and red one stood out the most. I also liked the red as it suggest a warning and the danger of over consumption of mobile phones.
I showed my try out posters to karl and he told me that I should try and split the poster into thirds to make a more comprehendible poster so I experimented in different ways of presenting the elements that I already have.
I need to decided that the lighter colour in the background is better so that the figures can become more obvious. I also like the white band at the bottom of the page as it makes the stat stand out more.
During my tutorial with Clair she told me that she preferred the previous pattern that i had made, and i agree due to the more detail in the clothing. She then explained how to create a pattern on illustrator by adding a swatch which made it easer for me to create an idea of what my poster could start to look like.
I took colour inspiration from the kings of convenience as I thought the colours worked well together as they are quite contrasting in tone.
Experimenting using hand drawn elements and illustrator I played around with ways of creating the poster and sticker. I would like to experiment more with a different colour pallet and maybe add the Facebook with teeth Symbol to create a more together poster. I will also look at posters that where effective for inspiration. I will also look into stickers and how to print onto stickers.
After looking at the links that Claire sent me, it was clear that one of the big problems with social media is the accessibility of it to children. I therefore wanted to touch on this as many people are unaware of the consequences of screens on children, allowing them to use laptops, phones and iPads at very young ages. This would be aimed at parents.
