Good Design Evaluation

  • In what ways have you considered the sustainability of your project process and outcomes? Well we didn’t want to waste lots of paper doing endless test prints so we did as less as we could as we could. The whole making process what done on the computer so no paper was wasted there and also we created a Dropbox account so we could share documents digitally so we didn’t have to waste paper and ink printing things off for each member of the group. This was a more efficient method of working sustainable in a group.
  • In what ways have you considered the ethical implications of your project process and outcomes? As the poster was all about ethics we had to make sure that when we were informing the audiences with facts and figure that we didn’t mention any brands that might get affected by their customers knowing the truth, we didn’t to offend anyone racially or through religion so wording of facts was very important. Also the images couldn’t be offensive or cause any upset so this is another thing we had to be careful about. We wanted the poster to standout and make people shocked by not upset or really offended from what was on the poster.
  •  In sustainability and ethical terms in what ways was your work in this project an improvement or a backward step for you as a socially conscious designer? I think it has taken me a step further as the whole project was on ethics and I have seen and learnt what its like when looking into ethics of big companies, it can affect your name as a business and as a designer. Being ethical and sustainable in design is becoming more of a need and a must in graphic design and by doing research and working on this project has shown me how important this is what the effects can be.
  • What targets can you make at this point for your work in the future as a socially conscious designer? I think looking into each project and thinking about the ethical implications about it before designing. Also thinking the materials being used and what impact that will have on your designs. It’s about thinking beyond the design it’s about the knock-on effect that your design could have on the environment, people and other businesses.
