Design For Communication

Design For Communication 

I recently completed the class Design For Communication (GRP209) at CSU. The class focussed on the application of design principles and visual communication for print and web.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class and had a lot of fun creating designs, pushing myself out of my comfort zone and applying knowledge to practical projects. I had some time management issues (oops), and I would like to have devoted more time to each assessment.

The class centred around two assessments, which focussed on design for print and web.

Design For Print

The assessment required the creation of a print-ready report from a selected industry. In addition, the report required evidence of graphic design principles in the structure and presentation of the document.

I selected Australian cinema and used data from Screen Australia to compile the 12-page report.

Improvements

I could have improved the design by increasing the size of the text on the infographic spread and improving the alignment of text and icons.

Design For Web

The assessment required the creation of a high-fidelity website prototype based on a website from a selected industry. The process involved analysis, user research, ideation, prototyping and user testing.

I decided to stay in a similar industry as assessment one and selected to redesign the Warner Bros. website.

Disclaimer: The website prototype was created for a university project and educational purposes only. I do not have any association with Warner Bros. or ownership of the content within the website.

Improvements

There are several improvements that I would like to have made to the design—particularly alignments, the textual overload of the about page, functional elements and other minor details. Unfortunately, I ran out of time and should have managed my time more appropriately.

Results

Grades are currently being finalised, but I have been graded high enough to fall within the high distinction range.

  1. I love the colours you’ve used for the Australian Cinema style guide! It looks fun and colourful but still muted and easy on the eyes. Great job if you ask me 😍

    The Warner Bros design looks nice too. The movies page, TV shows page, and single movie page are much better than what they have now!
