    Life Cycle of a Product

    This is the peak time for profit to be made, because as the demand increases, the production increases which therefore leads to lower cost per unit. Advertising campaigns are usually introduced around this time, attracting new and/or wider target markets. Every company wants this stage of a product's life as long as possible. In the example of a book, this is the stage where news has spread about the novel, and copies are beginning to sell at an increasingly fast pace.

  2. Design Evaluation

    So instead of thinking of company names I used branding through a logo. So I created a variety of picture and text logos and I chose the best out of those which is the image below. Then there came the actual packaging and for this creation task I made several scaled and to scale prototype models to note and record all the advantages and disadvantages of the product and how to improve on those. Problems I encountered in this project: When designing my original model I had the idea of having my top and bottom connected by a single hinge at the bottom of the pack then having a hand slot at the top.

  6. Development or Modifications to Final Ideas

    Also I have modified it to add an orange glow around the main part of the logo. This is because orange is a complimentary colour of blue so by using the blue and the orange next to each other they work very well together and as a result will help to attract more attention to the logo itself. Leaflet Holder: User's Comments: I feel that the use of thermochromatic ink is a great addition which will help to attract a lot of attention, especially children.

  8. Which character does the reader have more sympathy for: Frankenstein or his creation?

    Due to these reasons I feel more sympathy towards the monster than I do towards Victor Frankenstein. Despite how sympathetic I feel, I do like Frankenstein more than his creation. My main reason for this is that the monster, perhaps through little fault of its own, is a murderer. This shows that the monster has bad intentions whilst Frankenstein does not. This is but one example of just how open 'Frankenstein' is. Shelley leaves it up to the reader to make his/her own decisions on the book. Due to this I think Frankenstein is a fantastic book and rightly deserves to be as highly acclaimed as it is today.

  10. Evaluation - produce proposals for the possible re-branding of my school

    He incorporates them very well and subtlety. I like his work because it's very classic, memorable and simple. His work is landmark. I did this because it gave me inspiration, an influence and it offered a look at how previous designers worked. I did web searches on the images connected to different faculties and just asked people what images came to mind when I said a faculty name this provided me with many logo ideas. In addition I looked at existing logo designs in books wherein designers explored many different techniques, which I could use in my designs.

    If it has any educational aid then it should not be too hard for the user because then he or she will become bored and give up with the toy.

The purpose of a toy is not only for the user to get enjoyment out of it, although this is the main aim. Toys are also important for preschool and during school education.

  15. ICT - system outputs

    A colour on screen may look different to the one printed. Laser printers are very bulky and expensive. Printers run out of ink, so a malfunction could occur in which the logo comes out in a different colour or tone to the one desired, thus changing the connotations of logo. Which output device would be better to use for this sub-system? The best out-put device for a logo, is the one already in use, a laser printer. Why? Because not only of a laser printers benefits over an inkjets, but a graphic logo cannot be recreated by e.g.

  17. Evaluation for cake bases

    The flavour and texture of the cake were appropriate for my cake base. From the research above I wrote a design specification stating what my cake should be similar to. In my design specification I decided my cake to be a Christmas theme; I chose to target my novelty cake at children. The decoration on my novelty cake was based on flat relief because if the cake were to be mass produced it would be difficult to manufacture 3D models, I made the decision to use fondant icing to cover and decorate my cake because I a lot more manageable then royal icing.

  20. The Future of Graphic Arts I. Introduction The role of a graphic designer can be seen as wide ranging and adaptable

    It is at the beginning of the twentieth century that we see the start of the avant-garde movement. The ability of the art form to move foreword was propelled by the increased availability of the printed media. This also demonstrated a movement in style, looking away form the past and towards the future (WebCT, 2002). This can be traced to 1909, with the beginning being seen in Italy, when a futurist movement began. This was an age where there were many changes, there were new forms of transport, automobiles were becoming popular, there was also increased technology being used to develop warfare capabilities in response to the rising trend if nationalism.

  21. Having established that the best medium to advertise and raise awareness of my mother's salon is a leaflet. I decided to carry out a questionnaire and an interview for my research method due to the fact that I believe

    From the sample, she selected a fresh colour scheme, which consisted of different shades of blue. This complemented with the result of the questionnaire I carried out because 86% of the people preferred blue over the other options I presented. She also wanted the name of the salon in untailored, casual style (Magneto, Ravie) to contrast with a professional font, which was used for the price listing (Times New Roman, Century). Lastly she preferred to have real images on the leaflet over cartoon ones as they connote the professional genre of the business.

  23. Produce a new look for a website.

    I the started off by researching and designing a logo for the new look wow.com. I produced four prototypes of the logo and selected the best one that I felt had got the right look that I wanted. The final design included two people which I felt really stood out from the rest of the designs. The next task was to design the letterhead to update the old style into the new look. I used the documents that I collected at the beginning to give me ideas on how to design it. These where then used as templates for my design, my design for the letterhead was pretty simple as I felt that I didn't want to overcrowd the sheet.
