Capaign evaluation with resubmission

  1. 1. Social Action Evaluation Alex Walker
  2. 2. Are your pieces fit for their intended purpose? I feel that the final pieces are fit for purpose as they inform the target audience about stomach cancer. This was the main purpose of this stomach cancer campaign, it needed to raise awareness by telling people about the symptoms and possible ways to avoid developing stomach cancer. By making a variety of merchandise, posters, leaflets and a cooking event, I tried to meet the interests of my target audience, which was an older audience mainly. The posters and leaflets give facts and advice about stomach cancer, this fits the purpose of informing people of stomach cancer. The merchandise helps to raise awareness about this campaign and therefore helping more people become informed about stomach cancer. The cooking event would try and give people healthy eating advice and tips in order to try and prevent stomach cancer in and also make people more healthy. The things that I have created for this campaign communicate my message clearly, they all inform and spread awareness in a way that is appropriate for my target audience, people 30+, to make sure that this was correct I created a survey for feedback. All of the people who did the survey said that it effectively informs people about stomach cancer in a way that is appealing to my target audience. Do they communicate your message clearly? Are they appropriate for your target audience?
  3. 3. The first poster is the original idea, it uses a woman looking distressed to try and get peoples attention and also uses a distressed font to highlight this point. The image I used for this first poster isn’t an original image however, I used a woman more of the age group to highlight the fact the poster is giving. The layout for this poster is more basic than the layout for the second poster as I had to design the layout around the image, with the second poster I took the image myself so I could make the layout of the poster how I wanted it rather than how it had to be due to the image. Both of these posters have the text ‘I didn’t think I could get stomach cancer…’, this is making people think as if it was them who actually had stomach cancer. This makes people think about actually getting checked by a doctor and start eating healthily. I took inspiration for the purple banners on the posters from the ‘be clear on cancer’ posters and leaflets. They used them in a more effective way than mine, I think this is due to the purple on my posters being to dark . Also the text I used for ‘I didn’t think I could get stomach cancer’, doesn’t fit with the seriousness of the words and the poster. I feel the second poster has more of a professional aesthetic compared to the first poster, this will help it appeal to the older audience that it is intended for as the first poster would probably appeal more to a younger audience as it isn’t as smooth and clean with the layout.
  4. 4. These are two posters that I designed for stomach cancer awareness. They use original images so that I could design the poster how I wanted rather than having to design the poster around the stock images that I would have had to have used. The first one uses my brother, dad and grandad to show the stomach cancer risk growing as they get older, this is highlighted with the shadows. The second poster is the same image of my grandad but with facts about stomach cancer. I feel that by showing real people in the poster rather than just facts, it creates more of an emotive feel to the campaign. This is a technique that I found some campaigns did to get the same effect, like with the stand up to cancer videos and some posters. Also the race for life adverts that show why people are doing the race for life. These techniques make campaigns more effective and make people remember them. I feel that the first poster appeals to a wide audience as it uses different age groups to highlight that it can effect people before they even have stomach cancer. The second poster appeals to the most common age group of stomach cancer sufferers because it is using a person from that age group. I like both of these posters, however I feel the first is of a more professional standard than the second, this is because it uses less words but has more effect than the second. The first is the make you think and inform, the second is just to inform, I feel that I would find the second in a doctors surgery.
  5. 5. This is the leaflet I designed for the stomach cancer campaign. It is fairly basic in its layout and colour scheme. The colour scheme follows the the rest of the campaign because the colour for stomach cancer is purple, this makes it more recognisable when you are looking for different information on different cancers, for example, pink is breast cancer and you know that from all of the campaigns that go alongside which are mostly pink based. I feel this leaflet fit the purpose for its intended audience as it gives clear facts in a simple format that is easy to read and therefore understand. I also feel that it will appeal to the target audience as its clear and simple and straight to the point. It also uses a tactic of reminding people that they want to grow old and meet their grandchildren, this will make people think harder about if they are ignoring the signs an about eating healthier. I don’t like this leaflet as much as my second leaflet, this is because this was one of the first things that I created for this campaign within the first week of five. I feel the second leaflet I produced for my cooking event was on more of a professional standard than this poster, however as a first attempt I don’t think the poster is too bad but it is also not as aesthetically pleasing as the second leaflet.
  6. 6. This is the leaflet I designed for my cooking event. The cooking event was something I created so that I could appeal to the older audience in a more hands on way than just a website or different types of merchandise. This leaflet includes information about stomach cancer but also ways to be healthier in an attempt to try and prevent stomach cancer from a occurring. I feel this leaflet is fit for the purpose of informing and spreading awareness about stomach cancer and also trying to help people prevent developing stomach cancer. This leaflet has more going on in it that my other leaflet, which is why I prefer the leaflet as a whole. I don’t think there is anything that I would change about this leaflet.
  7. 7. These are the two logos that I’ve designed, the first is for my general stomach cancer campaign and the second is for the cooking event. The first logo uses a distressed looking font and also features a purple stomach to replace the ‘O’, this is to make the logo stand out from other cancer awareness campaigns. I took inspiration for this logo from other cancer awareness campaigns like ‘be clear on cancer’ and ‘stand up to cancer’. They used distressed looking fonts as well but did not use a stomach like I did for the ‘O’, this is probably because their campaigns are more generalised. The ‘healthy eating’ logo is made of cooking utensils, that were rotoscoped, this is to promote that cooking will be involved in the event and that it isn’t just a lecture about how to eat healthily. I thought of this whilst designing the logo as originally the ‘H’ and the ‘E’ were going to be normal letters, but I felt it followed more of theme to have objects to do with the event, like I had done with the stomach in the overall campaign. I feel these logos are fit for the purpose and successfully promote the campaign and event by informing people what it is about. I also think that both of these logos are aesthetically pleasing and are appropriate for the target audience. The answers that I gathered from my survey would also back this point up, all of the people that took part in the survey said that these logos were appropriate for this audience.
  8. 8. Compare and contrast your original intentions with the outcomes you arrived at. My original intentions came from when I was creating mood boards ,mind maps, planning, what colour schemes I will use etc. and what I wanted my social action campaign to be. In the idea generation, I created had 4 ideas that I then went into further detail with on a mood board. I then decided on the final idea, cancer awareness. The other ideas for the campaign I had included bullying, cancer awareness (general), alcoholism and mental health. I then chose cancer awareness but realised that to raise awareness for all cancers would take a lot longer than the five weeks I had to design and create everything. I then decided to find three cancers that needed awareness, I did this by researching the 5 most common cancers and choosing 3. The 3 I chose then went into my mind map, breast cancer, prostate cancer and stomach cancer. I went with stomach cancer as I feel the breast cancer and prostate cancer have had a lot of awareness raised and therefore I would become to repetitive of things that had already been done. Stomach cancer has had barely any awareness raised even though it is one of the most common types. I then created a mood board about existing cancer campaigns and took note of the poster design, wording, colour schemes and logos. This helped me decide on my final designs and ideas. My original intentions were quite similar to the final campaign, however I feel it looks a lot more professional than I had originally thought it might. I have a colour scheme and logo that are consistent throughout all of my campaign, which I gathered all of the information about from this prior research of different campaigns etc.
  9. 9. The logo on the left was one of the first that I designed for the general campaign. I didn’t like this as a logo to put out everywhere as I feel it looks dated and unprofessional. The original idea behind it was that using purple and yellow, contrasting colours, it would stand out more. However, I think the font and layout creates a dated look which is why I designed something more modern and aesthetically pleasing. The second logo is the final one that I used throughout the campaign, I feel its more modern than the first as I took inspiration from the ‘Be Clear On Cancer’ campaign. There only similarities between mine and their campaign logo are the distressed looking font and the bold text. Mine is different in layout, colour and the use of a stomach image within the word ‘stomach’. The distressed font makes it look more modern that the first logo as its more popular as a font than just plain text, it also adds another level to the campaign, showing that stomach cancer is distressing like the font.
  10. 10. The first poster is the original, it is nearly exactly the same as the second however, the wording is different on the main piece of text on the second to the first. The first read ‘Don’t let stomach cancer get you down.’, this was to go with the person siting on the floor in a distressed looking way. This worked well however, using the work ‘get’ instead of ‘knock’ like in the second poster, it made it sound like cancer wasn’t anything very serious and that you can just get over it. By using the word ‘knock’ instead more accurately describes what happens when you have cancer. The poster shows people as a silhouette and one person that stands out in purple, this is showing further what it feels like to have cancer. I also used silhouettes to show it can be anyone. For this poster, I took inspiration from the conservative poster from the 80’s, it doesn’t have the same message however, I like the queuing and the faceless people which is what I took from the government poster . I feel that the wording in the second and final poster is more emotive than in the first and this is why I prefer it overall. I feel it looks clean and professional but appealing to all ages and genders.
  11. 11. The first poster was the first draft, it is fairly plain and not particularly interesting. It displays the information clearly and includes an image of Jamie Oliver, the celebrity chef that would give some of the demonstrations of the ‘healthy eating’ cooking, and it includes both logos to show he association between the two campaigns. The fruit and veg that you can see behind the text in the second poster is one of the themes of the ‘healthy eating’ event. This also makes the second poster more interesting without drawing too much attention away from the information of the poster. I used Jamie Oliver as the celebrity chef for this as he is famous for trying to push healthy eating in school and homes, so for this event he was a good match. I also took inspiration for the title ‘Jamie Does Healthy Eating’ from his TV programs and books, it is part of his brand and people know about it, this will help with making people aware that the event is happening. I feel that the second poster is definitely more aesthetically pleasing and also ties in with the rest of the products etc. for this ‘healthy eating’ event. It looks more professional that the first draft as it isn’t as basic but still looks clean and clear even though it has more going on.
  12. 12. How effective are the techniques you have used? I used a range of techniques to create some interesting effects and images for different parts of my campaign. For example, I rotoscoped fruit and vegetables for the healthy eating, I also rotoscoped the kitchen utensils for the healthy eating logo. This means that I created the same image but slightly different as it is has more of a animated look about it with less detail, you can have more detail however I preferred mine to look more animated. This is an image I used on the back of my cancer awareness leaflet. I used a lasso tool in order to cut this image out of the original background, this isn’t an original image from me. I then used an effect called ‘plastic wrap’ on photoshop, this let me keep all of the detail I wanted but make the people purple so that it stood out next to the blue background and followed the colour scheme. I feel that these techniques have been effective to create some interesting and different things that stand out. I think that the fruit and vegetables that I rotoscoped are definitely more aesthetically pleasing than the the image with the effect on it, this is because it is cleaner and fits more with the overall theme.
  13. 13. Is the content effective? These are some of the responses from the feedback of my work from my survey. 100% of people who took the survey said that everything I have done informs people in an effective way, which was the the point of this campaign. This is backed-up further by peoples comments, people say that they have learnt more about this type of cancer already because of the ‘helpful resources’ and ‘lots of statistical information’. They also commented on how ‘fresh’ everything looks and with ‘nice presentable aesthetics’ and I have ‘included plenty of information in an interesting way’.
  14. 14. What impact do you think your advertising campaign will have on the public? I think the impact will be short but effective. I think this because there are always new campaigns and people are very set in their ways so its difficult to persuade people to change their habits, as someone commented. They are mainly positive comments and very truthful, the comments let me know that I need to add more information to my leaflets. In an emotive way, I think that my advertising will have an impact on the public. This is because I have used images that will appeal and speak to a wide audience. For instance, the image on the back of my first leaflet, it reminds people that they do want to grow old and see their grandchildren. I also used emotive language and imagery in the poster with the woman. The poster with the older man appeals to people of that age and also makes people feel more relatable and therefore want to read it. The poster with the three men getting older is a very relatable poster, this is because most people can relate to the fact that cancer is a risk and can be hereditary, by showing that the risk increases the older you get by using people from the same family getting older.
  15. 15. What are the technical and aesthetic qualities of your work? I have used a variety of different technical and aesthetic qualities in my work. The colour scheme I have used is a light blue and dark purple, these have been featured in most of my work. This adds continuity and therefore makes my products more recognisable. There are both technical and aesthetic reasons behind these decisions, the technical is to make it stand out and be recognisable as part of the stomach cancer brand, the aesthetic is because these colours work well together and it is easy to read the purple on the blue background. The cooking event was inspired by the fact that stomach cancer can be caused by what you eat, this is one of the variable things that cause stomach cancer that can be changed in peoples lives. The event its self is based around changing peoples diets in a way that isn’t too drastic however, a lot healthier and easy to do. This is so that it would appeal to a wider audience. I also tried to make it appeal to a wider audience by including Jamie Oliver as the celebrity chef, as he is famous for trying to get people to eat healthier, this would also build a wider following and therefore create more awareness for this campaign. The aesthetic qualities of the event featured the blue and purple colour scheme however, included the fruit and vegetables to show that the event was about healthy eating. I also created a separate logo for the event as it was more appealing to look at this logo that the stomach cancer logo as I wanted people to be thinking about food rather than stomach cancer. I did include the stomach cancer logo within the healthy eating event but it was smaller, I only included it to show the association between the two things.
  16. 16. I found a picture of Jamie Oliver leaning on a surface, I wanted him to look as if he was leaning on the logo the show that he was involved in this campaign. To create this effect, I polygon lasso tooled his hand separate from his body and cut out the thumb in order to make it look as though it is behind the logo. There are no fruit and vegetables behind this text, this is because I selected the fruit and veg that was behind here and deleted it is that the text was easier to read. The legs that are here were not part of the original image, this is because they weren’t there in the original image as the image was cropped. I used the clone stamp tool to create the legs, I would have used the content aware tool however there was not enough of the jeans included in the original image to do this effectively. By creating the legs myself, I could make him as tall or short as I needed him to be for this poster. The font that I used for this title is different than the other fonts on this poster, this is to make it stand out and be clear. I positioned it at the top left so it is easier and more natural place to read from.
  17. 17. The purple background here is a lighter purple than I have been using in other pieces of work, this is to make the fruit and veg stand out more clearly. To create these carrots, I rotoscoped around the original image of this bunch of carrots. I then used different shades to create a simplistic yet realistic look to them. I also used the colour range tool in order to get some of the basic texture from the original image. To create the shine on the apple, I used the colour range tool to get an effective shine that helped make the apple look more realistic. I also used a darker shade of red in center of the shine to further highlight it. For the layout of this ‘wallpaper’, I evenly spread all of the fruit and veg in a line and then moved it down and one along to make a diagonal design, I feel this looks clean and clear and isn’t too distracting as a background design.
  18. 18. I placed my logo on the pen, to make it more realistic, I used the warp tool to make the logo look like it was actually on the pen. I used a simple text on a plain background as I feel that it is gender neutral and simple yet it gets the message across in an effective way. The text is written in purple as it is the colour of my campaign. The logo for stomach cancer awareness is included on the apron to promote the campaign, I chose an apron as a way of promoting it as it is a useful product that can be used and is aesthetically pleasing.
  19. 19. Resubmission
  20. 20. I changed most of the pieces of work that I originally had as my final pieces of work. This was for a number of different reasons; there wasn’t enough of a consistent theme running through both my cooking event and my stomach cancer campaign, the boarders I used on most of my leaflets and posters looked chunky and unprofessional and there wasn’t enough variety in my merchandise. I took inspiration from my poster that looked most professional and based the rest of my campaign around that. I got rid of all of the boarders, this made everything look more professional and less enclosed. I also changed all of the fonts in order to get consistency and just changed the size or boldness if I needed to make it stand out more. By doing this to everything that I changed, it added more of theme to the campaign but also the cooking event didn’t look like such a separate part to the campaign. I changed the background colour of the posters and leaflets to an off white colour rather than blue and purple. I did this because having the off white background made the purple text stand out more and also more aesthetically pleasing. Having a blue background made it look cold and also unprofessional. I used the colour blue originally as blue is a relaxing colour, which is why its used on social media like Facebook, however, when I used it on my posters and leaflets, it looked cold and uninviting and childish. I created some more pieces of merchandise as well. There was nothing wrong with my other pieces of merchandise however, to add some variety, I created a few more pieces. They follow the theme of being useful and also having either the logo or something purple on them. I made a teddy bear with my logo and slogan on it, I made this because a lot of the other charities were doing this and also children would probably want it. The hot water bottle is there because people use them when their stomach hurts, this is useful and also relevant to the campaign.
