Reflection  15/01/18

Today we started our two-week project, Hear Make Heard. Start by reviewing all the research we conducted last weekend. We shared those audio in a group and solicit opinions from others. Then I chose a possible audio and listened to the thoughts of my classmates. I decided to choose the first audio about Chinese restaurants because I think this is an easy area to develop, but I would like to express it in a fun way. I have a lot of interesting ideas to develop in the future.

Then we started our drawing mission, we listened to the audio of our choice again and took a picture drawn in our minds. Based on the audio I chose, I drew some food. Later we started to build the concept of our publications. I would like to make a publication similar to a food magazine, but I think the picture of direct use of food is too simple, so I decided to paint each food by hand. And I want to compare the differences in eating habits between China and the UK in the publication so that I can directly express the characteristics of the food.

Today we learned a variety of ways of binding publications. These ways are very valuable to our further research. I was impressed with Stab binding, which is also known as Japanese binding because it is very natural and simple. I think this is a good choice. But because of the choice of paper and paper size, I prefer to use steel rings to connect them together. Because the cover of the publication I choose is harder and can not be bent. All I need to do is keep it steady so that the book can be opened, which is why I think the rim will fit this one.
In the afternoon, I started to think about the content of the publication, including pictures, words and fonts, and overall color matching. I drew some drafts on paper, I think it was not bad, then I will draw some formal illustrations.

I'm making the final preparations for tomorrow, and I insist that each page be done by hand and scanned and printed. So my workload is quite large. I hope to have a good effect.
