I eliminated Design Brief 3 (Advertising for events) because there were none recent events and could have been easy.

Feedbacks:

  • Yes, some of them do align with my project.
  • Yes, I was expecting them since they did mention one of my ideas being time consuming and I agree with them.
  • Some of the feedbacks were unexpected and helped me improve on the idea.

The project that I am going for is a poster for the Embassy of India and it is for the Indian Independence day coming up. The 75th Independence day of India. The poster will help to showcase the culture of India, the Tricolor and the people of the country. The poster is mode to represent the country and also the people. It makes the event colorful and attractive and therefore the Embassy might have a greater audience. My project enhances the event in several ways and therefore I am looking forward for it!
