Wednesday’s Final Critique
These were the posters I tiled for the critique. I received feedback from my group and the professors.
Regarding the poetic poster, I asked my group if they thought the green on red for the title doesn’t have enough contrast and they agreed. So I changed it to yellow. Another note they had was why was the “coming to life..” sentence in a different font. I realized then that I kept it that way to match previous versions. So I changed it to the typeface I used for the date and title.
Regarding the pragmatic poster, Law suggested I fix the windows and maybe add brick texture to the wall. I tried the brick texture, but I felt like it added too much detail compared to the other posters, where the lines were simple enough to connect it to the persuasive poster. For the windows, I went back to the source image and recreated the same window instead of simplifying it, which helped make it look more like a window.
The professors also suggested that we add billing credits at the bottom. So I added them to the pragmatic poster since it was practical information. I played with how the sentences broke to create different type compositions. I preferred the last one because it used the same styling as a standard billing credit, so the difference in type size helps the viewer read the information faster.
Regarding the persuasive poster, my group members brought to my attention that the white text would look clearer on the red than on the blue, because the contrast was stronger.
They also made me notice that some of the petals were slightly peeking through causing tension.
