  • Seeking feedback

    Hello, I'm just seeking feedback for an assignment for Open Colleges.
    The assignment is to create a 3D based artwork (signage) and a 2D artwork (poster) for a graphic design studio that is focused on the reception area. Unfortunately I couldn't find any decent reception area mockups.
    For the assignment I chose to do the businesses logo mounted on the wall that is slightly illuminated and a poster that reflects the businesses simplicity.
    Although I'm still learning 3D tools I'm surprised how well it turned out only using Gaussian blur for my 3D signage!
    Can't wait for some feedback,

    Second, your poster is at odds with your company name. If you are going to keep it simple, don't throw spurious junk into the poster design just to fill space. Not only is it unnecessary, it's distracting. Everything you have on there leads the eye off the page away from the logo.

    Third, I fabricate and install this stuff all day long. What do you mean by ''slightly illuminated?'' It is either lit or it isn't. And I'm guessing the teacher of this class doesn't expect you to figure out how your stuff is actually fabricated or installs. For instance, how are you going to power your ''slightly illuminated''?

    Why do students always go with the absolute minimum in order to get by on their project. You need to create a 2d element. Why is that a simple poster print? You need to create a 3D element, why is it just a simple logo pinned to a wall?

    2D things can include custom printed carpet, custom printed desk laminate (digital HPL,) custom printed wall cover, die cut vinyl, any number of wall treatments for that matter, imagery in frames or tastefully mounted in some fancy way, wall displays using gyford wire systems that can incorporate shelving (well maybe this falls a little bit under 3D depending on how you set it up.)

    3D can be your simple lit dots, a logo in various and infinite combinations of materials, lighting and effects, it can be sculptural, it can include a bunch of laser cut lettering that maybe spells out a mission statement, it can be a tasteful display like a company timeline or a display of products, it can incorporate media in some fashion if you are the type of design firm that has displayable work (and no I don't mean business cards and street flyers.)

    Think outside the box.
    Aim higher.

        Your logo is exactly the same (with the exception of color) as Mass Mutual's new logo.

          For layout purposes, Publisher is certainly a step up from MS Word.

          Reply to Price of Foil vs. Varnish for business cards?
          Neither Foil nor Varnish are done on a digital press - you would have to get your Business Cards printed Litho. For 100 cards this is always going to be expensive - you could probably get 2000 cards...
