For our first assignment for Visual Communication we were assigned the task of designing a name tag. This is a familiar task for us, however; this time we had to design one for a classmate. I was paired with Laura Kimmel. Laura and I have worked together on several projects and developed an understanding of each other over the past year. When we spoke Laura told me that she liked something simple with a focus on Line. I was inspired by a scarf that Laura wears in the studio. There were four requirements for the name tag.
1. Understand who you are designing for
2. Creat a composition that satisfies the client’s expectations
3. Create a composition that reflects your design style
4. Introduce through visual means
Both Laura and I were pleased with the outcome.
