Class Critique – Monday, October 19, 2015
The below images are some of my work that prepared for todays class critique. following the pervious process steps, he images below contain the first phase of the application design, logo experiments, project scenario and some notes that i took through the critique.
The critique was very useful because I was able to show my logo experiments with the application design. below are some of the important points that i will be focusing in the next few days.
- ergonomic point of view (size)
- create a wired frame
- show the navigation
- use grids
- refer to examples example Instagram and twitter
- you can group your options
- tracking the car
- points system
- points awarded
- redeeming points
- terms of policy
- Colors should be reduced
- chose one primary color + black
- the brand identity should be in english and arabic.
- Identify what is unique?
- articulate it in one idea
- choose a better name
- dynamic branding
These are the points that I will be focusing on. I will start by choosing a name. Then designing the logo and and starting with the application. along with these steps I will consider the typeface that I will be using, colors, navigation option for the application and creating the grid for the design of the application.
Below is my updated poster, In the critique I realized that the typeface i used was not the best typeface for a poster. The text is better now. I will just replace the image with a different image which is larger in size because this image is pixelated.
The first step was to start designing the logo by creating different experiments. At this point I was not sure if the way i strated the design was right or wrong.
here Since I chose the colors and had few ideas for the logo I decided to start designing the application.
In this part I tried to use the shapes of the english logo by reflecting the shapes. The results were not successful. The result did not turn out as i wanted. Therefore I tried few different options.
This is the final logo which I created.
I realized the abstract gets shorter the more it is developed. At the same time the meaning changing is more clear.
Recycling is a process that is not practiced by everyone in Qatar. This process is important because new products can be created out of existing materials, which will contribute toward the environmental sustainability. Most of the used materials are mainly categorized as waste. As a result this may lead to major affects to the environment such as affecting the ecosytems. Designing a visual language with a recycling plan will allow in raising awareness in the community in Qatar.
Recycling is a process that is not practiced by everyone around the world. This process is important because new products can be created out of existing materials, which will help the environmental sustainability. Most of the used materials are mainly categorized as waste. As a result this may lead to major affects to the environment such as pollution. Designing a mobile application, with a delivery car will allow the households in Qatar to have their recycling materials picked up from the step of the doors and earn points according to the weight of the materials. The points can be redeemed in specific market in Qatar. This will result raising awareness to the households in Qatar.
