We decided to choose each others strengths and weaknesses to make it easer to filter down which individual tasks we should carry out. At the moment the idea is that we both have a say in the over all design and concept, but I am more involved in the layout of the guide and Charlotte will be more hands on with the actual printing production. This will also help us to manage our time effectively, we have decided that everyday that we work together to begin with writing the days action plan. I will be recording this on my PPD blog.
After writing this we discovered that we will work well together and play off each others strengths and weaknesses to benefit our design work. The work load for the brief we have chosen is too big for one person, but together hopefully we will be able to produce an appropriate amount of work and fulfil this brief to its full potential.
We started at the basics and thought about different formats that we could produce this guide in. Charlotte produced a brainstorm and some design sheets to help our idea process. For now it looks like producing a small book is the best approach.
Charlotte also produced a swatch book to consider different stocks to use for our design.
