Assignment 5- Review of New Product – Feedback
Today I received a short report from Mr Alexander in relation to my new product. His comments are below. He also comments on a question I raised about showing product to paying customers.
This is better. A shame there is still some repetition, but not to the same degree as before.
To respond to the question you posed on your blog: if there are shots that you really don’t like, then don’t show them to the client! Sometimes, there might be great shots that you know they won’t be interested in, so it may be prudent to keep hold of these yourself (particularly when they’ve bargained your copyright from you!)
But ultimately, when you are working commercially, you have to relinquish some control, and accept that you are just one creative in a chain of several. actually, I’ve generally been quite happy with how designers have edited and used my images.
They see things in your shots that you don’t because they can imagine how they will work with text, logos and particular layouts.
I will submit both calendars for assessment in July as it will be interesting to get another perspective. Although Mr Alexander always seems to hit the nail on the head!!
