  • GD Graduate Crit

    Hey guys,

    Just wanting some constructive critisism. This is all work that I completed in my last year of University, along with two pieces from work placements.

    Be gentle, lol

    I like how you've photographed work instead of placing the digital file, but you really have to be careful with glare.

    Especially this one:


    I don't post close-ups of my work, but since you have various views, it's fine to do so.

    In general, though, I like the overall quality of the work.
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

      Cheers,

      Yeh the reason I have photographed most stuff quite close-up is because my Uni still has all of my mock-ups etc, so the photographs are of finished flats on mount board, so close-up photography was the best way to hide this, as I wanted a website up as quickly as possible without having to spend time making mock-ups again.
      The magazine spreads for the 'Heroin' brief I photoshopped onto a magazine to give it some context (even though its not actually in a fashion magazine, as which I should be showing it)

        Very nice, personally i think the angles are too extreme to the point of distorting what your work is and what budafist said about the glare. You cant tell if it is glare or design or both (the white glow).

        Lastly i think the text could be larger and brighter, or at least make it as bright as the section heading and make the section headings white.

          Hi Miss and welcome to GDF.

          You could look into Lynda.com. My library membership includes a free subscription, maybe yours does too? If not the monthly subscription fee is pretty affordable....

          Lynda.com has a bunch of courses and tutorials. However it would be a monthly fee to subscribe to lynda.com and based on your Adobe post it doesn't sound like you want a monthly commitment.

          You could buy the CS6 version. I'm not sure if Adobe still offers that on their website but you might find it on eBay or Amazon.

          The line weight is still too thin and fragile looking. They appear grayed out like something is missing. It's fine to use some gray but it is a bit too weak. How are you going to print gray? A spot color?...

          Only you are noticing the line weights because you did them. They are not varied and heavy enough. Make a copy and try it with different line weights that are heavier and even variable.
