Typeface Explorations: The feedback I got back was the placement a little too chunky and could play more on the placement.
Others: Michael suggested I could remove the center line since the letter ‘A’ is pretty obvious.
After the feedback gathered in class, I made some changes to my pencil design such as making the swoosh downwards instead of up and integrating an element of “community” in the design.
After more feedback from Michael, I decided to add more visual weight in my design and change the text font as well as orientation.

Final Presentation Process
In my final presentation, I prepared a set of explanatory cards along with a prototype of the final badge. This way, I could see how the badge look in real context and support my explanation during the my presentation.
In addition, I placed the badge onto an image of the volunteers. Allowing others to see how my designed badge Read more →
After the feedback session, feedback received are: clean up certain lines, simplify further, hidden image found in the facial features.

The initial research brought me to look at 3 predominant ideas: the adventurer, the spirit animal and the lighthouse.
Although I managed to mould it into a more ambiguous form, it did not feel complete. The feedback I received also included the fact that some of the final versions of the sketches were too complicated.
I realised the potential Read more →
During the translation of design, I did various arrangements and constantly got feedback from another person to see if my concept was retained after translation. Some parts were rather weak as it was a little cryptic and the message was difficult to decipher. Placement of objects were key but arrangement in terms of motifs facing upwards or downwards also played Read more →
