With Fred we were look at what graphic design is for. There are 5 main catergories which graphic design is split down to:
- information & way-finding
- publishing & editorial
- branding & identity
- product & packaging
- retail & promotion
These catergories arent fixed and design work can cross between the subjects.
We started to look at Editorial & publishing. This catergory can broken down to:
- Magazine design - content/type/image/format/text &grid
- Book and Publishing - books/posters/cd design
- General Publication - similar to editorial publishing but for a wider audience.
For the task on this we had list 10 subjects within each category an then write 10 examples of this subject e.g magazine design - design magazines - grafik/creative review/blueprint etc
I was given general publication to research into, we managed to write down 10 subjects
- annual report
but then found it hard to give examples of these because they are so broad and aren't normally in the public eye all the time, so for my research i have decided that i will 10 different examples of these based up good design and bad design.
