During my meeting with Karl we thought about the display of my pice in the exhibition I explained that I ether needed a shelf or a plinth to display my phone cases and I wanted wall space to display the stickers and the poster. During my screen printing with Elaine I asked if it was possible to screen print on the floor and she said yes, as long as the floor was flat so I asked Karl to give me a space with a flat floor.
I asked my peers which phone cases thy thought where more eye catching and more effective, and the majority said the ones with the blue background. I also thing this one is more effective as it makes the pattern seem more continuous And more professional
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.
looking at different patters i wanted to see how i could improve on my pattern and i concluded that maybe i should add more colour and maybe more detail. I spoke to Elaine and have booked a screen printing session next Monday so I can decide my final idea by then. using screen print means that i will have no tonal elements and limited colours so I need to keep this in mind when finalising my idea.
