Feedback for TAFE assessment please

I’ve been asked to design a T-shirt design for a made up band that I will later hand screen print.

Here is the Design brief and here are the three thumbnails I need feedback on. : )
tafe feedback



Some of these thumbnails are less refined, the coloured one is my person favourite so I’ve developed it more at this stage.

(the name of the band and title of their album will be added in later for the thumbnails that dint have it )

These are very rough preliminary sketches, but of the three, I too like the coloured one best. However, the devil is in the details, so what you with the sketch is what matters. Can you see beyond the sketch, all the way to the final piece?

Thank you for your feedback!

Yes, I can see where I’m going with the first and third designs but not so much the second one. I think I’d keep the same colours for them maybe changing them a bit as the reddish orange represents the nasturtium flower.

With the book id add “Nasturtium Rule” and 'Tales from the flowerbed" on the pages of the book, but I’m not sure yet where I’d put the words with the skull thumbnail.

Thank you again I will eliminate the second thumbnail and work on developing the last two until I choose which is best for the design brief.

I think it’s hysterical that the description of the band fits the indie steampunk band Abney Park to a T (pun intended.) :laughing:

This is supposed to appeal to all genders? And describes a rock band? With a boringly literal book and/or flower bed?

Do some mind mapping or something and get away from the obvious.

And your instructor is lazy. They should be playing the part of the client and you should have to defend your ideas to them in order to move forward. At least that’s what I’d make you do… :upside_down_face:
