On your return on 22nd June sketchbooks will be marked.   You will be assessed at this time to see if you have enough work to pass this stage to date on this project. 
Forgetting your book is an automatic referral!  Be prepared to discuss and have the following in your sketchbooks. 


·         Over this period you will also research 3 contemporary, well designed leaflets.  Photograph or stick in, or print off examples of creative leaflets you can find.  Look in the student union, music shops, fashion shops, etc.  Annotate and answer the following:

  • How does information flow from one panel to the next?
  • How is colour, text and image unified?  Comment on the layout
  • Is there a regular position/scale/ for the text on the page?
  • How is the type face integrated or contrasted with the other imagery?
  • How is the front and back cover effective?
  • How many images are used?
  • What messages are clear here and how have they been cleverly put together?

1.      Look at one artist or designer from each list (see below).  Collect information on each and analyse their work.  Answer the following questions:
2.      How have they composed their imagery?
3.      What media have they used?
4.      What processes and techniques have been included and what do you think about them?
5.      What mood, idea or concept does it reflect?
6.      Do you think the work is successful?  Why?
7.      What style would you say this work reflects?
8.      What makes this work interesting?
