Visual Language - End of Module Evaluation

What skills have you developed through this module and how effectively do you think you have applied them?
I have learnt a whole variety of skills through this module from the different seminars we had during the beginning of the year on things like colour theory and composition. It has shown me the importance of the basics of Graphic Design, and how the slightest things can make a huge impact over anything.

What approached to/methods of research have you developed and how have they informed your design development process?
Throughout the whole year, after each of the seminars I have found that they have made me a lot more visually aware of things around me that I wouldn't necessarily have noticed as much, or maybe just not understood, as I would have prior to these. It has really help to boost my primary research skills over the whole course, and now feel I can make more definite decisions with different aspects of my work without the need to second guess it.

What strengths can you identify in your work and how have/will you capitalise on these?
A strength through this module has to be my involvement with the seminars that we have had, and my efforts to make sure I fully understand them to make sure I can take away the skills I have learnt and apply them throughout the rest of the course.

What weaknesses can you identify in your work and how will you address these more fully?
My biggest weakness with this module is the fact that I didn't prioritise it as much as I probably should have, leaving me feeling like I could have done a lot better if I had have spent that bit more time doing things, especially with the What is a Line? brief. This is an important lesson I have learnt though and know especially for next year that each of the modules are equally important so I will give them all the same amount of effort rather than prioritising too much.

Identify five things that you will do differently next time and what do you expect to gain from doing these?

  1. I would take what I have learnt from the seminars and investigate them further to give me a better, more wide spread knowledge on each of the subjects. That way I could ensure I feel more confident when working with each of them.
  2. I will prioritise a module like this more, and make sure that I make more time for it to produce more work so that I won't feel at the end like I could have done better because I will know I have put the effort in in the first place.
  3. I would push the briefs further than I have, as I feel like I did what was required, but didn't really push to expand or experiment further.
  4. I will blog any seminar notes and what not the day that I receive them rather than leaving it for another day, as this is a really bad habit I have picked up and want to snap out of.
  5. I will do more research throughout, using more than just the internet.
