This booklet was created for my second project as a first
year Graphic Design student at The University of Salford. For my booklet design
I used a “map” design that opens from right to left.
As I got the brief I knew that this project would be more interesting than the
collection project. It gave me a lot of room for creativity and also a new
learning experience about the process of producing a booklet. Soon as I started
working on this new project I knew that I had to give my best.
First I started looking for a good design for my zin, but after I had the
design I realised that, a good booklet doesn’t need to have a good design but
is important to have good information that can be passed on. Looking on the
web, books other booklets I started collecting the much needed research.
After collecting all the needed research for my food booklet, I started a brain
storm for my booklet name. I had to chose between approximately 20/25 great
names, one better than other, as in the end I chosen “M1 EAT”. This name was
inspired after one of the sponsor’s name, Salford M3, also the idea was lighten
up in a quite useful group seminar.
What I really found pleasing about this project was that we had to do all the
work without any restriction, form the booklet design… to the articles, we had
a hole “filed” where we could let our creativity run wild. As usual my
creativity crowed out of the box a bit late, so a week before the deadline I
had to work really hard. I believe that I am more creative when I’m under
pressure, thing that isn’t so good for the hart, but this is how some people
work and I believe that I am one of them.
I had the chance to redo something I woIf I had the chance to redo something I would maybe pay more attention to my
articles, and also try a
a different design. But overall I’m quite pleased of how my
booklet looks and how the text is placed.
