Reflection and evaluation of the project
I really enjoyed doing this project as it was a great opportunity to learn about layout, typography and how to properly set up the document to create a publication. During the process, I found it quite confusing as I had many ideas that I wished to explore, and I wasn't sure about my focus. I was interested in the food ordering process, the online shopping process but also wanted to incorporate the anti-social interface from my own perspective. After testing out my ideas, I have decided to go find the common ground in all of my ideas - the shopping interface. Supermarkets have always enticed me because of how tidy things are being organised and laid out.
If I could improve my outcome, I would probably package it nicer, probably with a shopping basket, so that it matches the theme of what I am exploring. I would also incorporate more photography with my illustrations as I think they work well, and they are interesting for the reader to understand the topic. I would also like to improve the flow of information better so that the zine is more structured and orderly.
But overall, I'm happy with my progress, as I have never made a such a large scale screen printed outcome (which can also be folded into a posterzine!). The layer separation was a pain, but I'm glad I was able to work it out by myself and with the help of the technicians at Archway.
