Design Evaluation

Extracts from this document...


Design evaluation In this design graphics project we were asked to create a fitness pack for an Olympic sport and my chosen sport was boxing. My task was to create a new more dynamic packaging with relevant graphics. In this project in addition to my fitness pack, one product I will include is a t-shirt which I will design and create.

This caused a mismatch in some of the colours such as the products and the books and the packaging.
