Design Production Workshop

The Session
For this session, as a group we had to go through all of the things we found out about each of the six sections, putting them in a list, and getting a better understanding of what they all mean and do.
The way in which something is arranged or set out.
  • Magazines
  • CD
  • Business Card 
  • Poster
  • Flyer
Appropriate to the audience and other relevant factors within the design.
  • Monochrome
  • CMYK
  • Multiple colour
  • One colour to full colour
Hard to define between production and process. The way the printed piece is made/assembled after the printing process. Everything from start to finish.
  • Book binding
  • Packaging
  • Foiling
  • Cropping
The chosen way to print, the inks on to paper/stock itself.
  • Digital
  • Inkjet
  • Screen Printing
The material the design is applied to.
  • Metal
  • Wood
  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Plastic
The additional processes, to make the product final.
  • Foiling  
  • Embossing
  • Spot Varnish
This session was very helpful as it allowed us to straiten up we thought each section meant. All of the processes of design can be defined seperately, although to produce successful design all processes need to work together. (synthesize) These are the things we came up with as a group, but as a class we refined our thoughts into;
Format - Scale/size and working within that
Colour - Colour modes, hues, function, etc
Production - The actual making of it
Process - The method
Finishing - Production and process
Stock - Substrates for printing, considerations (cost)
