Half Term task

All groups,

Over half term, you should complete the following (all students to complete ALL tasks individually) and post up on blog by first lesson back:

1 x mock up layout done by hand or electronically of advert and digipak (this should be a paper construction to scale to show form as well as design).

The idea is that you bring this mock-up to the lesson so that you can discuss your final plans with your group. You should look at examples while you are designing.

Digipak for your track
This should be minimum 4 sides (front, back, inside covers including image under CD holder). You could however choose a more innovative layout that has more sides. This is up to you.

Magazine advertisement
This should also be drawn to scale. Decide an appropriate magazine that your advert would run in, like NME, and what style of advert you will design (full page, half page) and why.


All groups,

You should have completed all research tasks set up to now, including animatic and your primary/secondary research improved/completed by Friday 23rd. We will be reviewing and marking up to this stage over half term.
