SHE PLANTS THE SEED
The process of design is an integral part of the final creation as it is how we get there. Ideas develop along the way in response to our own perspectives on the project, clients needs and communicating to those around us, whether it be with client, colleagues or friends and family.
We also have our own inspirations, which come in all their diversities from music to books, to a blade of grass… to a strike of lightening.
THE SEEDLING EVOLVES
Ideas evolve as she climbs the mountain portraying our explorations and development of philosophies and designs. Reflection is also important throughout the process to examine and determine the problems and from where to continue.
I also used the quote ‘Doomed to crumble unless we grow and strengthen our communication,’ to relate to ones growth as a Graphic Designer as in this creative industry one is always learning and evolving and because this year I have discovered the importance of communication in this field, especially when we are working to please clients.
THE SEEDLING BECOMES A MAGNIFICENT TREE
The design eventually reaches its full growth, which at times can be difficult to determine yet as Graphic Designers we have deadlines that we must persevere to have it completed by.
When your design reaches this stage, ‘beautiful creatures will come to inhabit,’ -a metaphor concerning the receiving end of the design being client and consumer experience.
SHE REACHES THE MOUNTAIN PEAK AND CLIMBS THE TREE, REAPING THE REWARDS.
I just wanted to put up these images beacuse I had a problem with the printer having colours come out strange and in these panels the photographs came out blurry and I wanted you all to see them how they are supposed to be. The photos are from my climb of the beautiful Mt Warning which inspired this project, as I related this adventure to the journey of design processes. This is a lesson to save files correctly (I think it may have been to do with RGB and CMYK).
