Critique of Work
1. Does the design work well both two-dimensionally and three-dimensionally?
April: Definitely works well both in two-dimension and three-dimension as demonstrated in the presentation with the drawing and the photos. Her design has volume and depth.
Sally: Also works well both in two-dimension and three-dimension as demonstrated in her sketches and her photos. She definitely shows a 3-D format in her display with life like presentation of the cat playing with the toys. The design has depth and volume with form.
2. Does the design change function easily? What about the project shows that the designer thought about changing function easily?
April: The bracelet display ...view middle of the document...
The function of the display is simple and Sally shows
That she gave much thought into the function of the packaging and did research also.
3. What about the project shows that the designer has an understanding of human nature?
April: Shows that she is in touch with nature with the colors and with the design, definitely a dynamic image that communicates perfectly.
Sally: Shows a connection with human nature through the colors and her design, reaching to our inner child and speaking to us. Her design would speak to any age group and any gender.
Overall I feel that both Sally and April have done an outstanding job on their POP mockup displays. Very creative and both would definitely stand out from the competition.
Both are wonderful pieces of Artwork and will be great additions to their portfolios.
Improvement summary and rationale:
In order to take my project to the next step, first I would want to do more research. I want to take my display and see how it actually works in a store and on a counter. The only thing that concerns me at this stage is the size. Most clients have an issue with space so if it is too large I might have to down size. I realize this is a learning experience but I do want to know in case I ever actually have to do this. I do believe my design works both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional. The functions of the display are easy and with instruction would be simple to assemble. The lettering and the changing of the back would also be a plus for the store to give the product a feel of being new even though it is the same product. I also feel that I do have an understanding for human nature and nature also. A designer needs to understand human nature in order to be successful.
