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. The build up to the creation of my fitness pack: During the first few weeks of the project I had to first create a brand for my product and the 'company' it was made by.

Results from analysing the brief and specification I have found that most of my initial ideas were followed through. Unfortunately due to the technology available, I was not able to print out a logo onto the gloves which doesn't show continuity. Another major problem was the difference in colour in many aspects of the product.

This caused a mismatch in some of the colours such as the products and the books and the packaging. Other than this, most of the points from the brief and specification were followed and the people who were questioned were very happy with the product. Generally my package has proven to be a success! ...read more.
