We had a group meeting during the holidays where by we decided to set aside at least 2 hours to insure we got a lot done. We wanted to decide on a colour scheme,type choice,theme and colour scheme.
Sam did a really good job of putting a tick list together so that we could tick everything off and insured that we used our time effectively and insured that we got what we wanted to do done.
We had a look at pantone swatches and also at a colour combination book.
We really liked the colour combination shown in the top left corner (in the book at the bottom) the green actually worked really nicely with a blue and a slightly purply blue so we looked for some similar colours in the swatch and then found there CMYK colour marks and put this onto illustrator so that we could swatch them.
We decided after much consideration that we would use the layout of a rule of thirds mainly because we felt this fit a structured and portrait poster. We decided we would use circles as we felt this carried on the theme of pie charts that we saw carried out in other infographics.
When looking at type we discussed that we wanted to use a simple and san serif font there fore we would go off and look at our own type faces but we needed to come up with some sort of frame work for the poster so that we all came up with something we could work into/combine.
We decided before that we wanted to use our strengths and allocate jobs well.
The group decided that I would create a template as I am quite experienced with poster and layout work, shown below.I sent this to all the members of the group, The fibonacci spiral shows where we decided that the eye line wanted to go,and where we would have our circles to explain the story of the designer, client relationship.
I created the circle so that people could work there icons straight into them and I created the little icons of people, Client and designer with signifiers to distinguish which one was which.
