Assignment 5 Feedback.
My feedback report has arrived for assignment 5.
Viewers will have seen that I decided to create a desk calendar with images from the Eurostar terminal at St Pancras station in London.
For the product that I chose you need 52 images , one per week. This in hindsight was an error, as I had to use images more than once.
Mr Alexander noted this as follows.
Your particular product is quite challenging: As it’s week-by-week calendar, so there a lot more pages to fill than a regular calendar. If I were receiving this – although it’s meant to be a free-be – I’d feel that the repetition of images is disappointing. So, choosing a different product would have certainly made life easier for you. With that said, the actual product is nice, and, with the right imagery, I think I’d be very happy to keep on my desk.
However you will see that he did say that he wouldn’t mind the item on his desk, which I thought was a good sign.
In view of the above comments I have looked at a different product which needs less images I will create a new desk calendar , in a different style which I hope will be more pleasing.
This was an interesting assignment as you had to take a number of images that you think that the client would like.
You can take as many images as you like but the customer may have a different view of what they want. What happens if they choose an image that they like but it’s not one that you like yourself ? Does this cause a problem for you?
I will review my next product when it arrives from the printers.
