Secondary Research: My secondary research consisted of looking at relevant artists who created Graphic Designs. One artist I found was Jack Crossing, who I had never heard of before this project. I researched his graphic designs and general information about him, his designs gave me a lot of inspiration for my DVD cover. From his designs I took away the idea of a slight illusion effect, and the idea of multiple photos put into one. I really liked looking into professional examples as they all gave me a lot of inspiration and helped me to understand how a DVD cover needed to look.
Primary Research: As part of my primary research I gathered DVD’s from around my home to look at and compare to others, I think this really helped as I was able to compare the styles of genres and how professionals approached the ideas they had. As well as this I collected images that I had already taken that might have suited the DVD cover I was planning to do, and I also went out and took relevant images. By doing this I had the chance to change any ideas to suit the DVD cover I wanted to do, if the photos I had, or took didn’t fit in well with my ideas.
