OUGD402- PPP1- Self Evaluation

 Module Code 

 Module Title



James Keefe

1.  What skills have you developed through this module and how effectively do you think you have applied them?

I now have a better understanding and appreciation of graphic design and the different fields within. I have learnt to take inspiration from non-graphic design related sources and apply it to my own practice. I have a clearer idea of what kind of learner and designer I am and the areas of design I want to further explore ready for my second year.

2. What approaches to/methods of design production have you developed and how have they informed your design development process?

I have improved on designing a range of products that work together as whole, keeping continuity across media. This has made me think I would like to further explore branding and identity.

3. What strengths can you identify in your work and how have/will you capitalise on these?

I am much better at analysing images and articulating my opinions and ideas to communicate, which then informs the design designs I make.

4. What weaknesses can you identify in your work and how will you address these in the future?

I feel I am starting to create an identity within my designs. I think this is a good thing but I need to be careful that it doesn’t hold me back in exploring different techniques and ideas that could possibly limit me to a specific audience making me less versatile, therefore losing potential clients.

5. Identify five things that you will do differently next time and what do you expect to gain from doing these?

·       Blog tasks straight away
Just so I don’t forget things that we have done in the lesson so I can refer back if needed.

·       Look at more design studios
To start to gain a better understanding of what is available, the type of working environment I would like to be a part of.

·       Look at a wider variety of design work
I need to look at design that doesn’t necessarily appeal to me because I think I can still learn from it and possible be inspired to try something new.

·       Re-visit task
As my opinions and ideas of design have changed I think I would of benefited in updating my blog to show the progression in my tastes and work.

·       Allow more time for self-reflection.
I think self-refection is important to progress and need more time to fully think about to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your design practice.

6.How would you grade yourself on the following areas:
(please indicate using an ‘x’) 

5= excellent, 4 = very good, 3 = good, 2 = average, 1 = poor







Quantity of work produced


Quality of work produced


Contribution to the group


The evaluation of your work is an important part of the assessment criteria and represents a percentage of the overall grade. It is essential that you give yourself enough time to complete your written evaluation fully and with appropriate depth and level of self-reflection. If you have any questions relating to the self evaluation process speak to a member of staff as soon as possible.
