After this, we then wrote feedback down for each individual, most people wanted advice on stock, font choice and whether they had enough work. I found that I was able to give quite constructive feedback which hopefully helped other group members. When it came to presenting my own work I had written down all of the different elements I am including within this brief, to ensure that I had asked everything I needed the answers for.
I feel as though the feedback I was given was quite constructive, however I would have benefitted even more if we had then proceeded to go around the whole class and ask for even more feedback, so that I could see whether there were many more suggestions.
I asked about the following elements:
- Placemats and whether they would be used
- Experimenting with laminating
- Tupperware stickers
- Blog or PDF with the recipes
- Show what it would look like on an iPad
- Storage or stand
- Brown bags
- I was told that the illustrative font worked well with my own illustrations
- It was also suggested that I could use fridge magnets, which allowed me to explain my idea of buying small magnetic boards to use
- The swirly font could be too feminine
- I could use a rack that spins around to hand all of the different types of recipes on
- I could iron on to an oven glove
- The green stock was preferred, however the cream stock was also liked
- James mentioned how I could melt plastic to create a stand
- It was said that the individual cards could be misplaced, which is why I would use a belly band to keep them all together
I then asked a few more people for some feedback after the crit to clarify what I should do.
