PROJECT 1A-COMMUNICATIONS My aim is to produce a CD cover and poster to promote it, for an age group of 15-20 year olds. The main purpose is to design it for a certain group of people that are into to a particular genre of music and for my CD it will be rhythm and blues, which is also commonly known as r'n'b. The CD will be a compilation of various r'n'b artists and will include a range of different songs from these artists. To find out what songs and artists are popular I will survey a group of 15-20 year olds using a questionnaire this then will be my basic research. When I have found out the relevant information I can them see which songs and artists were more popular. The final result will be a CD cover; which will also contain an 8 page booklet for the inside. The 8-page booklet will contain images and text on artists. Promoting the CD will include producing the posters for advertisement. The posters will be shop window displays and for the streets. The posters have to be eye catching but very simple and have to be noticeable. If people were to drive past in their cars they should be able to see it and read it, so only a small amount of text will be included. My information will come from three main sources, which are: the Internet, books and magazines. I will use 2 search engines to get the information off the Internet and I will scan the various images from books and magazine and use some the information and change it in to my own words and then this will appear in my booklet. Collecting Information To Suit My Purpose Questionnaire I have produced a questionnaire to help me with the research. I will distribute my questionnaire to a selection of 10 people that fit the age range of 15 - 20 year olds. ...read more.


This was my first draft of my front cover I asked a number of people (that fitted within my age group) their opinions on it and the main point was that they said it looked to boring and needed to be more original so it would be more appealing to the target audience. So now I am going to try and improve the design by moving the images around and experiment with different layout. This is my second attempt of the front cover. I am not totally satisfied with this one I tried to make it different by putting the images in different sections but it make it look unfinished and empty. Front Cover This is what my final front cover I have changed the layout and I think that now it looks unique. Here are the images that I have used on the front cover and which website I copied them from. I have chosen to use two images from the 5 of the 6 artists because if I had only just used one the cover will have looked very empty and wouldn't look the way I wanted it to. To make it look more professional I used 2 images to fill the remaining space.

Always scan disks for viruses before using them 5. Never download anything from the internet unless you know fro certain that it doesn't carry a computer virus. 6. Never give your log on password to anyone 7. No food or drinks are allowed in the room 8.

Never mess with the wires that are connected to the computer when the computer is turned on. 10. Never put in disks that are not suitable for use or have been damaged because they may get stuck in the drive. Virus Protection A virus is a program that has been created to do damage to a computer system. If a computer virus got on to a network all the computers in that network will be affected. The more different computers you use the greater the chance of getting a computer virus, I worked on the same computer each time. To protect computers from viruses I didn't download items from the internet unless it was a trusted source. When I used my own disks I preformed a virus check before using them. Also the computer that I was using already had a program that automatically scanned the computers hard drive for any viruses. I provided the disks that I used to save my work on and did not use any disks that were given to me. The Importance Of Copyright And Confidentiality Copyright is the protection of someone's work. It is wrong to copy someone's work without his or her permission. It's also wrong for personal information to be made public because the information is not supposed to be available to any one else. Also if personal information is made public it is seen as a criminal offence. The Copyright Design Patent Act is the law that should be followed. I have spell checked all my work and got someone to proof read it and I have made all the relevant changes. SNITA LAL - 1 - ...read more.
