  • 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

    Please be aware that the website itself has been created with a free portfolio template site.

    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

      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.

          I always expect some form of crit after sending a proof to a client. When there is no critique, I am concerned because I fear the client hasn't looked at the proof properly.

          Studies are a big investment in time and money. I wouldn't hire a designer that refused to invest in themselves to learn the basics.
