1. My role in the group process was that of a listener and an idea giver.
I feel I helped develop all ideas and lend my ideas to others to aid
in their progression. I did as much as I could in solving and aiding
with all technical and assembly ideas and construction.
I think I could have put more thought into the beginning ideas for the
genre. I think I helped in narrow it down, but I could have given more
of my own ideas. I think I could have aided more in the cover and back
3. I think I am now a little bit more prepared in working with a large
group on collaborative projects. I think I am more familiar with a
flap opening book and assembly.
I am more aware of assembly problems
when a project is in the hands of 11 different people.
Self Evaluation II:
I enjoy the book as it is an assembly of stories on a theme seen from
11 different directions. I feel that the assembly is functioning well with
the opening flap giving info leading to the opening spread. I feel all
front flaps work well together as a whole due to the limited amount of use
of the flap, white space and text, this keeps the book uniform. I think
that the layout of the spreads work well, order, flow, and ending. I like
the impactful ending of April’s spread.
I think my spread shows my
struggles with text, the progression from my previous spreads that I had to
work through. I feel as I see and experience more knowledge and seeing
others experiments it aids me in my experiments. I try to research and
explore design and type experiments that interest me and are similar to my
style to see if I can try something new. I feel this research and knowledge
has aided me in my progression in my work. The book as a whole feels
comfortable in my hand; it seems to be of a good weight. I like the texture
and sheen of the pages.
I think there are some shortcomings, but those are
in the fact that some spreads are not lining up with the rest of the book.
It also appears as if some people showed more experiments in type than
others. I think that even in its diversity the spreads look good in the
sequence they are in. The variety is what is making it stronger. I would
have to say this book I an evolution of imagination in type. It is a
glimpse into the minds of eleven people.
It is a typography experiment with
unity, rhythm, and strong diversity into the view of one theme. It is
putting ideas or feelings into a visual field using type and images.
