Mockups of the my final work before deciding upon the work.

Sticky notes workout and specific ideas to include :

My ideas previously varied from each other and there was not much harmony within them because they did not match each other’s style. I have tried to make it more similar with my final decisions and add a few different designs from what I started. I have tried to combine the ideas I started with and make a new design all together.

Feedback from client:

Final Presentation (poster for the 75th Independence Day  of India):

Independent Project Poster Independence Day

Goals – The poster helped me to showcase the culture of India through the Tricolor and some national aspects. The poster is a mode to represent the country and also the people. It makes the event of Independence day colorful and attractive and therefore the Embassy might have a greater audience. My project enhances the event in several ways and therefore I am happy with the final product. There might be a bit of self criticism because I was not fluent with the software I worked with since it was my first time. But I am overall happy with my final presentation and hopefully my client also thinks so.

My success criteria previously:

I want my project to represent the country; India, by using different techniques and ideas that I have collected overtime and add them as one of the key features to help improve the poster and also add culture, i.e., dance forms, painting techniques etc. to make it intriguing and effective from the viewer’s perspective. I decide to work as creatively as I can, so that it is attractive and that for the audience to know the cultures and traditions followed in India. I will know that my idea is successful if the audience takes interest in knowing what the content on my poster is about and if they notice from my poster what my main aim is.

Aims I achieved from the success criteria:

I tried representing my country through the tricolors, peacock and Taj Mahal. I did not want it to be too cluttered up so added minimal details and tried making it simple and subtle. The usage of colors is accordingly to represent the country. “I will know that my idea is successful if the audience takes interest in knowing what the content on my poster is about and if they notice from my poster what my main aim is ” is yet to see and I look forward to the event when I will know that my poster was a great success!

Choices and Decisions:

The choices and decisions that I made for this project are to collectively start a new idea by collecting ideas that I could come up with to form a broad design to help me work on it better. I also have decided to include some of the major aspects of the Indian culture which represent the country and help me in making the poster more precise to what I want it to lead to, that is, promoting the Indian culture and traditions.  I want my audience to know what the context and content my poster is about and therefore have made the decision to include these aspects in my poster.

Goals and Steps:

The goals that I want to achieve are by making the poster as inviting as I can so that my poster gets promoted amongst people and also the main medium, that is, making people aware of cultures and traditions followed in India by showcasing it in the poster with attractive aspects. I would want to take steps towards the better making of my poster by more research and gathering better ideas and start off with a creative mind when I do begin making the project.
