My final assignment for ‘The Art of Photography’ course was well-received by my tutor and I was pleased that he felt my work displayed a personal voice. He did however feel that I could improve my cover image by adding some embellishments to the text. Bearing in mind that my graphic design skills are pretty close to zero this did not come as a great surprise.
My original submission for Assignment Five (Applying the techniques of illustration and narrative) can be found here.
The suggestions made by my tutor were to include the date on the cover and also my name. Whilst making these amendments I also increased the size of the text at the bottom left and lightened the colour. Whilst I am aware that these improvements will not win me any prizes for graphic design I feel that the cover is now more attractive and eye-catching to a potential reader / purchaser of the magazine.
