How to Poster | Module 1 Steps
Learning Summary: After doing research, I found that a lot of food posters use a hand drawn style and I loved that! That style fits seems to fit a food topic really well. I am hoping as the weeks go on, I can successfully make my posters look a little more like that. I also really love the bright colors that so many of these posters use. To me, they make them so much more interesting to look at. Especially with my topic, I thought some fun colors would work really well. (I really liked the black and white/sketched look too, though!)
I realized how difficult it is to provide instructions without words. So hard! Detail is so important, yet it has to be simple enough for everyone to understand. This project has made me appreciative for those big (frustrating), furniture instructions.
I also realized (again) just how time consuming, yet important sketching is. That step by far took me the longest this week but in the end it’s worth it. It’s interesting though, I seem to always go back to the first few sketches — probably because they are usually the more simple layouts.
Lastly, I know I have a lot to work on but I really need to work on the juicer. Right now it looks a little like a boat and an artichoke mixed to me. Anyone have any suggestions on how to improve that?
