{Graphic Design 1- Graphic Form} Assignments: Project Brief, The 500

Part 2 Editing is now the focus. Selecting successful solutions from a large number of originals is, in itself, a very important aspect of the design process. Editing, especially self-editing, is a critical skill that requires an inner sense of understanding what attracts one’s own attention while keeping in mind the precise intent of the problem. Good editing skills support good problem solving skills and vice-versa. You will now begin editing your sheets of 100 into groups of 10 per concept sheet, for a total of 50 thumbnail sketches. What question should you keep asking yourself as you choose your final 10? Working in small groups, you will meet and approve or defend your selections. Following the group selections you will begin enlarging your sketches to 3"× 3". The scale increase may be done by hand, the Xerox machine, or by scanning. You must stay true to your original idea in the sketch to see if it holds up at the new and larger scale.
