Once back at college, we were told to arrange ourselves into assigned groups of 8/9 students who whom we would present our findings.
Each student had 5 minutes to present, and time after for questions and feedback to be written by the other students listening.
Below is the feedback I received after my presentation. Overall I was happy with how it went, and it seemed to communicate the message intended.
1. Very precise and in depth research on topic.
2. Evidence that proves Behance can be so successful when used correctly.
3. Inspirational topic due to success.
4. Broad and detailed analysis.
5. Good examples of getting out and doing work.
6. Broad range of research.
7. Could have spent more time on info graphic facts when presenting.
8. What has this taught you over summer?
9. What other success stories are there, and what other designers have been noticed via behance?
Could be useful:
1. More visible images for presentation.
3. Could you possibly look at other designers submissions?
1. Strong presenting style.
2. Inspirational due to success.
3. Good personal use of the site.
This task helped to teach us how to focus on giving feedback which is useful and specific, opposed to general feedback we may of given in the past.
From the written and spoken feedback, we were asked to create a list of 3 objectives or aspirations taken from todays constructive feedback:
1. Try and include personal experiences/design aesthetics to more work produced, to help engage the viewer and create more interest. My presentation today was said to be inspiring due to being relating to a personal experience with a positive and successful outcome. Feedback also seems more honest when others look at your own personal work, opposed to designers used as inspiration.
2. Keep using Behance on a daily basis, to enhance publicity and promotion. Increase creative social networking use on other websites such as Issu or Designspiration.
3. Include more visuals in presentations when appropriate to help engage the viewer. This was mentioned today, and would make the topic easier to understand, as well as more interesting.
