Proposal & Time Plan

Proposal

Rationale

From the very beginning I wasn’t the most confident with the new software (Adobe Photoshop) and throughout this course, my skills with the program have developed massively and I feel much more confident using it. My knowledge of the subject area has increased hugely influencing my chosen pathway to be graphic design. My progress from the first 7 projects includes working more digitally which is more into what I want to work into. As for the achievements they include the OKIDO magazine and business re-branding because they are more in my field of work (graphic design). My work has been a mixture of handmade and digital, but for this project, I wanted to develop the digital skills more rather than have a handmade outcome.

Project Concept

My project concept is to represent my hobbies and interests in such a way that it relates to what I would like to do in the future. So my idea for this project is to create an online magazine that will represent myself, there will be pages talking about my hobbies, interests, and ambitions. The magazine will also contain posters (like an advertisement) and a link to an animated version that you can view as well (animated poster/cinemagraph). The magazine will also include an animation made either by hand or digitally that will represent a hobby of mine in some way.

The research that is needed for this project will be on making an effective magazine and looking at magazines first hand. I will need to research/learn how to make an animation effectively and in a simple way. I anticipate on creating a small magazine about my life now and what I would like to do in the future.

The types of materials that will be needed for this project are a computer, sketchbook, pens/pencils and a camera. The work that will be needed for this project will be a lot but keeping up with the time plan will help to keep track of my work.

Evaluation

The way I will reflect on and evaluate my work by writing a post for my ‘Blog The Week’ which is a summary of my week as a whole. I will also write down ideas and notes for my ideas and experiments etc. The ways I will record my decision making for this project is by surveys from my target audience, this will help me to see what they like from my ideas and where I can improve them.
