1: My STRENGTHS
I think I did well on creating a balanced motif because I made sure I had both negative and positive space. For example, I practiced an activity in class to understand negative spaces in different pictures or motifs. Also, I think I did well on evening out the different shapes and ideas to make it look clear by thinking about where to put the shapes that can interlock on the sides. But when I was collecting ideas for the final design, it took me time because I kept on thinking about if one kind of design is necessary to keep and to be apart of my final design. The ideas and solutions that I am proud of is the wave idea because without the wave it looked like there was something missing. But, when I added the waves on the side of the Korean flag circle, the plate looked full.
2: My WEAKNESSES
I could improve my cultural influence idea by adding more detail or using some other kind of design, for example, flowers to represent my culture. I could improve my personal interest idea by adding a design that is more specific about what represents my self or my interest. I chose the season/star for my personal interest but, I could have been more specific like what kind or other kinds but a design that is easy to understand.
I think the interlocking on my final motif design is accurate for example, the triangles on the corners create a perfect square shape when it interlocks with each other because there are 4 triangles that can create one shape. I think I also have a part that can not interlock for example the wavy lines on the side because one of the line thickness is kind of different from the other line. My interlocking creates a new shape such as a square because the 4 equal triangles create a square as one of the shapes.
2: Color Unity
I chose these colors because they are the colors that represent my country. They symbolize the colors in the Korean flag(black, white, blue and red) but, I am only going to use the color black and white to show color unity. The combination of color that I am going to use is white ink on black paper and black ink on white paper. My color plan is unified and not choose randomly because I thought about the colors that represent my country and whether the color is unified or not by choosing the combination of color that does not hurt peoples’ eyes.
