OUGD503 - Brief 01 - Monotype - Additional Touchpoint Finalisation
After presenting my developed zine design to a crit group and a couple of my tutors, I made some adjustments to the overall look and feel. People said that they would like to see the zine with a fresher background, suggesting I made the background of all the spreads white, in order to allow the rest of the content to stand out on the page. This was definitely a valid piece of feedback which I took on boards. They also said that the body copy should be easier to read, suggesting I use a sans serif such as Franklin Gothic which is slightly more legible than Apercu. I made this alteration and it improved the overall reading quality of the content. People also suggested that I should consider making the content entirely monochrome and print onto vibrant coloured stock. This piece of feedback was unexpected but I took in on board and tried it out. The results were brilliant and made the finished printed booklet look highly professional and consistent with the rest of my campaigns collateral.
