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. 2. 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.Order now
I think I could have aided more in the cover and back layout. 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 from11 different directions.
I feel that the assembly is functioning well withthe opening flap giving info leading to the opening spread. I feel allfront flaps work well together as a whole due to the limited amount of useof the flap, white space and text, this keeps the book uniform. I thinkthat the layout of the spreads work well, order, flow, and ending. I likethe impactful ending of April’s spread. I think my spread shows mystruggles with text, the progression from my previous spreads that I had towork through.
I feel as I see and experience more knowledge and seeingothers experiments it aids me in my experiments. I try to research andexplore design and type experiments that interest me and are similar to mystyle to see if I can try something new. I feel this research and knowledgehas aided me in my progression in my work. The book as a whole feelscomfortable in my hand; it seems to be of a good weight. I like the textureand sheen of the pages.
I think there are some shortcomings, but those arein 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 thanothers. I think that even in its diversity the spreads look good in thesequence they are in. The variety is what is making it stronger. I wouldhave to say this book I an evolution of imagination in type. It is aglimpse into the minds of eleven people.
It is a typography experiment withunity, rhythm, and strong diversity into the view of one theme. It isputting ideas or feelings into a visual field using type and images.Nick Hughes .
