PGCDVC2016_17 Blog Welcome

September 6, 2016 in Unit 1 & 2 Information Design, Unit 1 & 2 Typography, Unit 1 & 2 Visual Language, Unit 3 Professional and Academic Context

Welcome to your course blog where you can post images and comments. Let’s keep it a visual blog. Don’t post too many images in one post and consider using the gallery function. One or two images per post is more likely to get a response. You can post an image and if you want to provide a link to your own blog for content that’s great also but don’t just post links on their own. Remember to also tag your post – project and unit titles such as: Typography; Visual Language; Information Design; Research and Development; and Professional and Academic Context are a good way to group categories. Please note that this blog is an additive extra and not a formal tutorial or feedback mechanism. Henrietta and Tony will look in occasionally to comment. We want you to engage in online debate about the development of your projects with your peers. Use constructive criticism to feedback on each other’s work. Don’t forget to say how you think it could be improved – help each other. Although it is nice to receive and give compliments, phrases or words such as ‘cool’ or ‘nice’ won’t help the other person to extend what they are doing. As the recipient challenge your viewers for their views. Don’t be satisfied with ‘cool’ or ‘nice’ – actively seek critical opinion.
