@Jordan Art Of Mock Up

 I do struggle with graphic design and making something look good. I have yet to choose a font and suitable layout, however this will be playing in a doctors surgery so the art of should look clean and clinical. I'm not sure how to go about this!

  1. Hi Manisha,

    Thanks for uploading. Lots to be excited about here. I understand your predicament regarding the clinical approach needed. However, I do think you can give your art book a little more room to breathe. The art book itself isn't for a doctors waiting room, so it can deviate from this theme a little.

    Firstly, I really like the way in which you present text and images. It is clean, easy to read and appropriate. (Not too much text just for the sake of it.) However, I think some of the images deserve more page space. For example, I'd like to see the environment concepts on a page alone without any text. It will let the reader see the work without distraction.

    The same could be said of the character pages. The bacteria concept page could be laid out as a single line showing the original six colour variations. And then the following page has just 3 with some text explaining the decision. More full page images would help.

    Two smaller issues;

    Your sketchbook pages could be presented in a more subtle way. Rather than simply scanning two pages and placing them on a page. Why not clean them up (scan in and adjust the levels so the paper is invisible) and arrange the thumbnails across the page in the most visually engaging manner. See here for a great example - https://www.scribd.com/doc/140579263/Num-Num-The-Making-Of

    This would instantly bring some life to those sketch pages.

    Lastly, be careful about font. Overall, I think the font works well throughout. But your title page has 4 different fonts. Is this to show various possible options? If so, I think the bottom 2 are most appropraite.

    So, lots of really good stuff going on here Manisha. Just let some of it breathe. Give some of those great concept pieces some space to shine!
