END OF MODULE EVALUATION
What skills have you developed through this module and how effectively do you think you have applied them?
I think the most valuable skill set I have learnt throughout this module is my researching techniques. This is something that has been hugely improved throughout and as the project progressed it became easier to understand what particular areas of research I needed to undertake in order to get the best results. I found this module valuable in enabling me to gain an appropriate amount of primary and secondary research in order to feed into my arguments within my essay, this was something I would of found quite intimidating at first, the idea of conducting an interview or carrying out a survey, yet I found it engaging and invaluable to supporting my points. I also found this module helped to improve the regular activity of blogging and documentation, this was something I felt was improved and I recorded my research in an effective way, reflecting on the work and developing my ideas through evaluative blog posts. I feel the development stages of my practical were successful and allowed me to progress and form new ideas and concepts which helped to further the final outcomes. Another skill I feel has been improved is the planning and organising throughout this project. There was a lot to consider in terms of planning research, considering theory and trying to synthesis the two elements and I felt down to planning and organising this helped to approach the task.
What approaches to/methods of design production have you developed and how have they informed your design development process?
I feel I have developed my design skills in terms of designing something that will be put into practice in terms of being used to promote the exhibition that will be displayed during the summer. This is something I had to consider when designing and needed to apply the relevant information in order to inform my audience. I also thought my research into modernist design really helped to inform my designs for my own work and I paid more attention to detail whilst designing in order to apply the modernist theory into my practice. I have also improved on my mock up skills and visually displaying my digital work in a more professional style.
