There are common features between the BBC News site and GamesOnly web sites, both have search and navigation that remains the same at the top of every page.  Both have a central area for the ‘copy’ where the main content is placed, and areas to the left and right of the main central panel that expand or reduce depending on how big the web browser window is or the size and settings of the monitor.  Both sites contain a lot of images to make the site interesting and easy for users to see what they want to look at and use quickly.

I used outside location and studio to try to get the images I wanted.  The outside shots used natural lighting, I experimented with different shutter speeds and aperture sizes to try to get different effects, trying to over expose slight the photograph to give a pale washed out effect and a gritty city feel.  I had the band member stand in various static poses and movement shots walking across the camera front. I also took outdoor photographs of some possible backgrounds such as the brick wall and fences.

I took some studio photographs, these were with a white background using studio lighting.  I did not adjust the settings on the camera once they were setup, but concentrated on getting the band member to stand in and move with the aim of getting suitable shots that can be edited into backgrounds.

 CD Cover

This is my second CD album cover I have improved my skills of image manipulation using Photoshop as the editor. Using layers I included the band member and converted the image to drawing using the effects filter within the graffiti, I experimented with the artistic filters and think this gave the best effect, and still have the band member recognisable.  I also improved the distortion to make it more obvious that the band member is being sucked into the box.  I also used layers to include the album title and changed the font of the album cover to match in with the font on the poster. modified-3

Messages conveyed in the poster 

The message that the album cover is delivering to the audience is that it is aimed at a rock and pop franchise. This is because there is a cartoon of a monster on the album cover, this cartoon is brightly coloured and has the effect that it is cool and funky, this is aiming at the pop side of the audience but this carton also fits in with the rock audience as the cartoon looks similar to a demon and a skeleton which is more popular with the rock side of audience as it fits in with their music and it is how a rock audience would like to illustrate themselves.

This album cover has a spooky, horror theme, echoing part of the band name of ‘Nightmare’.  The colours are eeire and have a dark side to them, for example the graffiti is used using spray paint, making it look like the background of the wall has been vandalized, show a rebellion to law and society. Again this is what the rock and pop audience would be drawn to. Using this effect of graffiti and colours attracts this type of audience because of the picture and the graffiti used.

The main lead signer is shown being sucked into a box, this shows a horror effect as the main signer has represented that they are going through into a different world through the monsters toy music box. This is also popular with the rock and pop audience, as they enjoy fantasy art work and that there is a different world, this is illustrated through the picture. I have asked some of my peers in class and other people out of college if this is what they see, a high percentage of the people who I asked agreed with the exact feeling and though of the album cover. This shows that the message that I wanted to demonstrate has effectively been pursued as the audience are communicating with the poster, as I wanted them to

Poster for album launch

Second poster design I improved with the inclusion of additional relevant information, an insert of the new album cover and accompanying text.  Using Photoshop editor I used the clone tool and transparency settings to copy areas of sky to better blend in the area around the hair and head of the band member.  There was a pale ‘halo’ which didn’t look quiet right. promotional-poster-photography-plus-insert2

Second poster design

Messages conveyed in the poster 

The message that the promotional poster is giving off to the audience, is that the poster is more aimed at the pop audience this is because the colours used are more natural and more of what you would see on other pop group posters, this is due to the colours that the majority of pop groups using. I have used these colours to attract more of the pop genre so that the band can promote their name making them more known in the pop culture making them more publicity and a wider audience. I have also put the band member on the pier by the sea as if to say that the band has a peaceful and calmer compared to their last album, this is to give the effect that the album has been toned down. I have still kept with the original rock outfit to make the band member fitting in with the rock genre and audiences. This is also to make the band more known in the rock industry and to symbolize that they are still producing rock music. On the album cover I have still chosen dusk as the night draws on to suggest that it is still dark fitting in with the rock sector, but I have also choseen it with the light and the colour scheme overlaps with the pop industry. The fonts used on the poster suggests that it is still trying to look traditional with the oldergeneration of a rock group as they used a gothic calligraphy type font.

CD cover design for album Poster Review and  Response

Dose your finished promotional poster meet with the aims of the brief? 

I believe I have met with the brief of producing a poster advertising the launch of a new album.  It has all the key elements required.  Details of the launch, image of the lead band member in an atmospheric setting.  Details of what the new album cover looks like and there are icons indicating that it is available for download from iTunes and people can like it or comment upon the album on Facebook.  The things that have worked well on my promotional poster is the leading lines, the streaks of the sky the converging parallel lines and planking on the jetty the band member is standing on, they all focus to the centre where the head of the band member is approximately placed, above the horizon where the sky is palest. I think this Is affective because it draws in people’s attention in to the centre of the picture and the main band members face. For fans it is something they will identify and focus upon. For people who are not fans the image of the band member is strong, so it will stand out on the page easily, this also helps to make the band member easer to recognise in a hurry. Other things that have worked well on my promotional poster is the colours used because the colours in the sunset sky (pinks/purples) match in with the colour, clouds and tones of the band member and her skin contrasting with the black leather jacket that has plenty of highlights in similar colours of the sky.

What are the areas for improvement on the promotional poster?

The areas to improve my final product is to ensure that the band member when cut from the studio photograph and placed on to the new background that the area around the face, hair and glasses have the new background showing. If closely inspected there is some hair that has the white studio background showing, also close to the cheek on the left hand side. This should be the pale blue sky background.Other improvements I could make to the promotional poster is to add a drop shadow, and experiment with contrasting colours for some of the text, this is to give an impression of greater depth and helps to give a stronger definition to the text on a mixed colour background. Making it easier to read.This is a big change to my original idea because this picture shown will reach a bigger and wider audience

Dose your promotional poster meet with the aims of the brief?

I believe my promotional poster meets with my brief. I wanted a poster aimed at the pop/rock genre.   I have managed to create this by using the atmospheric and moody lighting of the sunset with pastel colours that you would normally see with other traditional folk/pop artists. The band member wearing jeans and casually half wearing half carrying a leather jacket on her shoulder gives a moody rock look. This will also interest the audience who enjoy rock, pop and also people who are interested in fashion

How well does your promotional poster compare with your original ideas?

Compared to my original ideas I thought there would be more brighter colours making the poster look poor like a combined rock and pop poster. On my original ideas I thought that the band member would be wearing more trendy and fashionable clothing making the band known as fashion icons in the pop world. This is also where the band is aimed at. I am happier with my new idea  because it incorporates both pop and rock instead of aiming it at just one of the category’s. I also know that this fits in better with my brief

What comments have your peers made about your work on the promotional poster?

The comments that my peers have said about my work are that the colours on the promotional poster makes it a bit hard to see what has been written down. Some of the other comments that my peers have said about the promotional poster is that some of the shadows on the text is in the wrong place so the shadow looks out of place.My peers also said that they liked how I managed to combine the pop and the rock styles together.

How could you improve you work based on the feed back from your peers about the promotional poster?

To improve my promotional poster using the feed back from my peers I will make sure that the writing is clear and easy to read, This would help people understand what has been written easily and quickly. I will also bear in mind the colour of the text as well in case it is hard to read. This will help the audience focus on the text more easily and make the theme of the poster fit in with the rock/pop style

CD Cover Review and Response

Dose your finished CD cover meet with the aims of the brief?

The aim of the brief was for a rock style album cover, this is conveyed by the urban graffiti background.  There is some humour as well with the image of the lead band member as a drawing being sucked into the music box.  The things that have worked well on my CD cover is the strong image of the band member that has been overlaid on to the background image.The lines off the nose from the mask, the streaks in the sky, the poles in the water all draw the eye to focus on the band member. These are reasons why I chose a graffiti background. The proportions of the size of the band member being a solid feature to focus upon, the face can be clearly seen for fans making her easily recognisable. Enough background visible to give an atmospheric natural environment, opposed to a serious studio shot.

What are the areas of improvement on the CD cover?

The areas I can improve on my CD cover is making the band member look more 3D on the cover. This will be done to make the band member more interesting to look at and look more affective on the CD cover.Other places that I think I can improve my CD cover on is making the colours in the background stand out more to make the graffiti picture look as if it was jumping out at the band member. Doing this would make the graffiti man more fun to look at and would make the album cover more fun and appealing to the audience. Another way I think I can improve my CD cover is by adding In shadows, this could also help the people and characters standout more

Dose your CD cover meet with the aims of the brief?

I have stuck to the aims of the brief so I have made the band member wear rock styled clothing. This is so the band member fits in with the surroundings and doesn’t look out-of-place on the CD cover. I also said that I will be in a skate park for my CD cover photo because you can create lots of different effects and you can capture other people’s thoughts and emotions through the graffiti in the CD cover. I feel that I have stuck to this part of the brief because I have followed the original ideas that I had

How does your CD cover compare with your original ideas 

The original brief idea was for a rock/music promotional poster. I have stayed with original concept. The outdoor shots I had originally planned to take at a playground with a band member sitting on a swing, and using slow exposure to introduce some movement. The outdoor shots I did take were in an urban setting with brick wall and wooden fence backgrounds. I experimented with over exposure to introduce a grunge look. I was not satisfied with these images. I did follow and adapt one of my original ideas of mixing a studio shot of the band member superimposed upon a different outdoor background. My original idea for the background was for city streets with graffiti. I changed the idea about the background for something more tranquil and contrasting that better shows the band members face. The final chosen background has strong lines within it to draw the eye to the focal point of the band member. This I feel works better and will be a more appealing image for a wider audience

What comments have your peers made about your CD cover?

The comments that my peers have made about my work are that the band member doesn’t look 3D on the CD cover. They also say that this makes it look less affective on the cover. Other comments that my peers have made about my work is that it looks bold and colourful. My peers have also said that the title is too small and hard to read in a hurry

How could you improve your CD cover based on the feedback from your peers?

The improvements that I could make to the CD cover are to make the band member more 3D. I will make the model more 3D by making the band member larger and adding a shadow. Other improvements that my peers have suggested are making the title bigger. I will do this by changing the font size of the title and this will make it easer for them to read.

Were there any technical and creative choices made during the production process of the CD cover and the promotional poster, which would you change on reflection? 

There were technical and creative choices made during the process of creating the CD cover although if I was to recreate this again I would still use Photoshop. This is because I am confidant with this program and all of the functions in it. Also I feel that this gives the finished product a professional finish

Overall How have your application of digital graphic design skills met with the brief?

With The CD cover and the promotional poster I have had to over lap photos to give the band member a more interesting backgrounds. This also helps to make the CD cover and promotional poster more appealing to look at. Other things I have had to use is text and text styles this is to make the information on the poster and the CD cover more appealing and fun to look at. On the CD cover and the promotional poster I have used lots of different layers to create a build up of images. This will make the images more bold and easer to separate the individual layers. This will hep with my original idea because you could clearly see the layers of the background and the band member.

evaluation unit 10 D: review on digital photography

why you rejected some of your final images and why I included other images?

The photographs I took for the cover design are a mixture of outdoor and indoor studio shots.

I experimented outdoors with head shots, ¾ body shots, brick and fence backgrounds, looking at the camera and away from the camera, looking to the distance over exposures to give a wai have been through my photosshed out style. I posed subject in a variety of poses with her jacket on and slung over her shoulder looking towards the camera.

I discarded all the outdoor images because they looked over exposed and did not give the urban edgy feel I was looking for.

I selected two studio shots of the subject carrying her jacket on her shoulder and the second shot of the subject looking as if they could be walking slightly to the right of the camera. I choose these because they have a natural pose and balance of the subject. I will use Photoshop to cut around the subject and drop the subject on to a suitable ‘moody’ background.

Dose your finished promotional poster meet with the aims of the brief? 

The things that have worked well on my promotional poster is the leading lines, the streaks of the sky the converging parallel lines and planking on the jetty the band member is standing on, they all focus to the centre where the head of the band member is approximately placed, above the horizon where the sky is palest.

Unit 10 A2 Understanding the production of digital photography analysing

Website

Visit England website is a tourist promotional site http://www.visitengland.com/ . The aim is to promote England as an attractive tourist destination.  The website is an ideal medium for this because it has a global presence on the internet and can be accessed by anyone from around the world.  The site contains many attractive images and low in text, this helps to sell England as a tourist destination, the high number of photographs are especially important to sell England as tourist destination for people who may wish to visit from abroad where English language is not their first language and may struggle to read large amounts of descriptive text.

The Visit England homepage has a large attractive colourful image of the English seaside on a bright summers day.  The sky is blue, the sea is blue with gentle breaking waves on a colourful shoreline and an interesting rock face in the background (Durdle door).  The view of the sea has overlayed upon it a picture of “Shaun the Sheep” looking to be taking a ‘selfie’ There is also a contrasting image insert image of the English countryside with walkers.

The website image is intended to be visually attractive to encourage people from overseas to visit England on holiday, and for people in the UK to stay and explore England as a holiday destination.

The image of the seaside is intended to be attractive to people looking for beach holidays, the beach in this picture is deserted, something that is attractive to many holiday makers.  The picture of Shaun taking a selfie is aimed to introduce a sense of fun, and also attractive for children or parents with young children.  The picture of Shaun is used as a ‘guide’ to England. There are a series of pictures from around England that feature Shaun visiting the sites, the use of Shaun also highlights that there is a “Shaun the Sheep” art trail that is being run in London and Bristol during 2015.  “Shaun the Sheep” is ideal as part of the advertising campaign because “Shaun the Sheep” is a popular children’s TV program sold around the world, and therefore would appeal to a wide audience from other countries.

The contrasting insert picture of the family of walkers rambling through the countryside is to appeal to the family audience.  The image has a nostalgic look of warm family summer holidays and days out for picnics.

DVD Cover

The DVD front cover is for a Japanese TV animation series Fullmetal Alchemist Brootherhood. The graphic on the cover is in the Japanese comic/graphic novel art form of Manga. The cover art work on the cover of the DVD gives the viewer a strong indication that the DVD will be an animation in the Manga style.

fma4brotherhood

The DVD cover has some text added to inform the viewer of the title, the DVD logo to indicate the format of the media and details about which episodes of the TV show are included on the DVD. In small text below the title of the DVD is a brief description, this is very helpful to people outside of Japan that may not have seen or be aware of the storyline of the TV series.  The fact that the text on the front cover is in English indicates that although the TV series was for the Japanese market, the DVD is intended for an English speaking audience.  You would have to read the back cover to confirm this and also which DVD region/country (0,1,2,3,4) it is intended to marketed for.

The genre that this film is teen/adult animation with an adventure fantasy thriller storyline.  This is conveyed by the way the lighting has been used in the image, a dark background.  The character shown is the main character of the show Edward Elric in shadow on the front cover is holding very carefully, the hands are almost in a praying position holding a chemistry bottle that looks to be glowing giving off light.  The chemistry flask is drawn in such a way that the contents has potentially powers, possibly magical or mystical power.  The colours used in the picture attracts the audience because of the simplicity of the colours and picture so the cover is not overloaded with distracting detail making the cover overall look more bold and mysterious.

Magazine cover

The magazine is Kerrang.  Kerrang! is a UK dedicated heavy metal music magazine aimed at rock fans.  The content is aimed at mainly a male dominated youth to 30 year old market.  The content of the magazine is details about live band gigs, reviews of new and old metal or rock bands.  Band news and reviews of album releases or concerts, interviews and changes in band line-ups plus posters and plenty of photographs of bands performing.  graphic style that is used is grunge.

a143c35e3205e39d4deb7dd3aae02c92

The graphics on the cover is a montage of pictures of musicians, bands that feature within the pages of the magazine issue.  The images of musicians are ‘cut around’ and overlaid on top of each other and placed  at angels in a scrapbook style. The cover has headlines, band names and comments and quotes from and about the content inside the magazine splashed across the pictures in a style very similar to the celebrity gossip magazines of Chat or OK magazine with the use of different font sizes, colours. The hectic layout text style is big to attract the audiences attention and it is also in red which suggests danger to make the cover and magazine more interesting and bold to read. The way the text and images on the page is overlapped and busy with pictures that don’t always fit making the page look as though it is shouting out to the reader, which is what grunge is known for.   The genre that this is to attract the rock fan and appeal to their loud ‘in your face’ approach used in is rock music. This is also sometimes used in rock or punk album covers.

 comparing the styles together

The styles are very different because they are intended for different target audiences for very different products, tourist to visit England, youth to buy and watch a DVD, heavy metal fans to buy a magazine.

The Visit England site is a very polished tranquil site full of elegant and attractive images of places of interest and beauty in England, aimed at an adult market that will be making decisions where to spend a lot of money on family holidays or short breaks to visit places or events.  The images expand to fill the web browser window and show high quality pictures.  There is minimal text, but there are web navigation buttons displayed across the top, a common website navigation layout design.  Once the user is exploring deeper into the website additional navigation buttons are displayed down the left hand side.  The large inclusion of Shaun the sheep, an animation character also adds to the target family audience and offers a fun appeal to visit England.  The use of Shaun the sheep also reinforces a ‘Visit England’ advertisement campaign that is being used to promote England as a tourist destination.

The DVD manga front cover is intended to attract fans of Japanese animation manga stories, the art work is stylish and immediately conveys this because the cover graphic, the image taken from the DVD or has been specially drawn.  The use of a single main character gives immediate recognition for existing fans of this series of animation.  The high quality fantasy cover art work gives an idea of the quality of the artwork used in the DVD animation.  In this respect the web site and the DVD cover are similar in conveying the content and quality of the product and both use recognisable animation TV characters.

The DVD cover also displays facts about the content, it is a DVD plus the short title and brief description of the content because western viewers may not be familiar with the ‘Fullmetal Alchemist’ Japanese series of stories.

The Kerrang! Magazine cover contrasts very much with both the website imagery and the DVD cover. The Kerrang! Cover contains lots of images and text colliding, and has multiple fonts and font sizes and colours all laid on at different angles, an audience that is normally quiet loud and expressive.  The cover design would require a great deal of photographic editing to isolate the images of the musicians and add the text. The frantic cover of Kerrang! Will be appealing to the heavy metal fan, whereas the same style of approach if applied to the Visit England site would be unlikely to attract the intended audience of ‘middle class’ tourist with money to spend in hotels, restaurants, historic houses or places of interest. The angled layout of images and text on a website would also be confusing for navigation, as to which text or image would take the user to an item of interest.

All the products would have required some photographic editing and applying layout for the addition of text.  The DVD cover to have the DVD logo added, the text for the title and episode information. The images used in the visit England web site would also require photographic editing to add in Shaun the sheep.  Some additional editing may have been applied to the England pictures to remove or airbrush out any unwanted features that may be included in the photographs such as litter, telephone, electricity poles or cables.  The colours may have also been adjusted to make the photographs look bright and richly coloured.
