Feedback from tutors
Common issues that arose form the final crit on Monday 26th March 2012.
- Not enough of you have looked at contemporary design and illustration.
- Europa, Julia, Wrap, Eureka, Good Magazine, Heart illustration agency, Peepshow, Drawbridge were all mentioned in the crit. There are lots more out there to look at.
- Work needs to be proofread - check for spelling and grammar errors.
- Body copy generally too large.
- Be brave. Take creative risks.
- Too reliant on the computer - look to the workshops. Be playful.
- Presenting work – orientation of pages, type, image use etc need to be considered.
- Print out work at actual size - you need to see your newspaper at actual size printed out and not on screen to be able to edit type
- Always read the brief carefully.
- Keep your journal as a blog. Those who had talked a great deal about how helpful this was.
- Detailing - needs to be addressed throughout.
