YCN Greeting Card Project Boards

The YCN Greeting card boards have now been completed after experimenting with a range of alternative layout designs. As you can see below the first 2 pages consists of a large amount of my illustrations for the cards. Having designs at different sizes and arranged  in a much more interesting layout. Before the designs were in lines and looked too normal (boring). Having 1 design and its inside pages on a A3 board works much better than having 2 or 4 all on one page as you can see the designs at a larger scale.

 

This brief has been interesting to complete as I have not created greeting cards before. My illustrator pen tool skills have greatly improved from last time and I am more confident using this tool. For next time I should try to experiment with different ways of creating designs such as using collages and thicker/thin pens instead os sticking to using the same stroke on designs. It has been a challenge to create cards that stand out from what is already out there at the moment.
