Concept Development and Refinement

  • When I start to used photoshop to create my design, I fine it hard to present what I want. In contrast, for the diary cover I want the design elements is by original, so decided to used watercolour and other tools to draw my won design, than I will put it into InDesign.
  • Due in the experimented with design element and principles, I had did a lot of colour test. For example, I blend that many times of white colour with red colour, it gradually appear different gradient colour and saturation, which has different stages of pink. Though out the continue process to find out the atmosphere that I want to convey, which are positive element, love, helping, happiness, hope and future. Also has experimented of used kind of the heart shape, hand, hospital sign, and used rectangle as money to interact people to donate. With the experimented design principles, I draw two kids holding hand together with their back, it seem like they're looking forward. In turn, to emphasis the main point that there are better future for the kids, just need your litter help. This maybe interact people's sympathy, thus of donate money to support children have a better live.
  • The most effective design solutions is my design concept and the design structure. My design purpose is to command audience 's emphasis to donate money or as a volunteer, to help children who are in the medical condition for face in a hard situation. Which will give them a better education, medicare, environment and so on. The design structure is how I combine my design element and principles to reach my concept. Like though out the colour experience to build up the skill of attract audience attention. The used of object like two child holding hand and the paper crane seems to delivery the support for the children from the wold.
  • The design solution have meet directly to purpose of donate money, the context of the children charity diary cover, and the audience are parent and people who have a ability to assist and be a financial donor. though out the design element and principles which have shown above. In constraints to meet the design brief, for the final layout of my art work will include charity organisation logo and the text "2018 Diary", my artwork will be 210mm with 296mm(landscape) plus 3mm bleed with crop marks as the total side front and back. Ana the artwork would be divided into the front and back cover are 210mm with 148mm(portrait), Colours will be CMYK, files will be 300 dpi, and come up with the high resolution print quality artwork as a PDF.
