Idea 1What colour theme could be used? I think that because the type of recipe card we are going to be creating is for vegetarians we should use colours thatpeople would categorize to be natural and organic, these colours are typically green’s and cream’s. It would be good touse these kind of colours to show the audience that our food will be made from natural things before reading andlooking at the images of the food and it will also show professionalism as it will show we’ve took natural colourscheme’s as well as the food in to consideration.What process/printing method could be used?The best process out of them all I would say is Varnish. This is because it will still enable the card to look professionalbut there will be different texture’s so that it’s not boring for the audience to look at. It will also give people theimpression that the food we are going to be making is fancy because often things that have a shine to them lookexquisite and expensive.What font could be used?I think that we are going for a classy and fancy look to the card that we should use writing that fits the bill, so we woulduse writing with flicks and curls, this is called sans-serif.What could the layout of the card be?Again because we are going for a classy and expensive looking card I think that we should use a smart, tidy and minimallayout with only the necessary information so that the card doesn’t look too busy and jumbled up. This will make ourcard look more professional and hopefully stand out from the others.
What kinds of media cold be used?We will just be using photography to make our recipe card, this will show professionalism.We will also be using photography because if we were to use any other kinds of media it could ruin the cardand make it look messy.What theme food could be used?People obviously need to eat everyday, so for this reason I think that we should just do normal everyday foodrather than just food on one in particular event.This would also mean that we would get more business as a company rather than just once every year.What kind’s of food could be used?All kinds of food’s could be used, starter, main and dessert, but often people are too full for desert after they’vehad a starter and a main so I think that we should just stick to a main and dessert because of that and becausepeople always like to treat themselves to something sweet.I think that for the main we could do something that’s just simple and then for the dessert we could usesomething that’s really indulgent with lots of chocolate, sweetness.. Etc.Target audience - Who will the food be being made for?The kinds of food that we will be using are for adults, both men and women, this is because they will be maturekinds of food’s that are really rich in taste whereas children often like things that are quite mild. There kinds ofcolours that have been used are also unisex, this shows no discrimination between the two gender’s, you canalso tell from looking at the colour themes, fonts, and method’s that have been considered are also quitemature and modern which will push our recipe’s towards adults more.The age group for our recipe cards is also the middle age and older people, this is because the card’s don’t lookyoung enough for younger people.
Feedback 1What do you like about the idea?The colours suit the theme such as vegetarians – green/yellow.I like the idea of doing a meal and then having a desert afterwards.I like the fact that the recipe cards will be suitable for both genders.The idea of having varnish for a finished idea on the card is a good idea.What areas of the idea could be developed?I think the font idea could be improved to having block writing instead of fancy writing this way itis easier to and more understanding to the audience.What do you find interesting about the idea?I like the idea that the cards will look classy and expensive.
Idea 2What colour theme could be used?We could use more boisterous colours so that the card stand out from the rest, this would mean using bold and brightcolours so catch the attention of potential buyers. This would mean using colours like red, yellow, orange, blue.. Etc.What process/printing method could be used?With us potentially using the bright and bold colours this would make the card look quite immature, so I think to tryand make it look more professional we could use emboss, this would make it so a part of the image sticks out so that itlooks like it’s 3D.What font could be used?I think that because the card Is going to be looking immature and playful we should go for a fun kind of writing to fit inwith the card.What could the layout of the card be?The layout of the card will always have to be neat so that the reader can see everything properly., but we could maybeadd some more text on to the card and maybe a little image of something on the back of the card so it looks moreplayful.
What kinds of media could be used?I think that we could use a mix of things, so we could use a big image of the food on the front page sticking outand then we could have a little cartoon image of one of the ingredience that has been used to create the food.This will help to make the card look better as it won’t be as messy.What theme food could be used?I think that because the kinds of colour scheme and the processes we are going to use are quite child-like wecould do the food so that it’s for children’s Birthday parties and also do just a main meal.This would be good for us as well because we would be able to make the food look exciting or in the shape of abirthday balloon/animals, Etc.What kinds of food could be used?I think that we could use food’s like spag boll and French fries as these are typical foods that children enjoy, sowe could do food’s involving these things so that children will enjoy them and to make them different we couldmake them in to different shapes.Target audience - Who will the food be being made for?The food we would consider making would be for children and toddlers, this is because of the way that the cardis going to be being made and because of the colours that would be being used. The food would also bee quitemild in taste because young children don’t tend to like strong things, this shows that it’s for young people.The gender this recipe card would be for would be pushed more towards boys again because of the colours butgirls could use it if they wanted too
Feedback 2What do you like about the idea?I like the fact that the that the colours fit in with the theme of having a male gender.I like the fact that the recipe card will try make the food sound like fun because it is aimed atchildren.The idea of the font being ‘playful’ is a good idea.What areas of the idea could be developed?I think that the age of the target audience should be increased to age 10.I think that the colour yellow shouldn’t be used as it is quite a ‘uni sex ‘ colour.What do you find interesting about the idea?The idea of having an embossing effect to make it look 3d sounds interesting.making the food look exciting by putting it in different shapes is a great idea as it will attractchildren.
Idea 3What colour scheme could be used?Because we considered a boy’s card we also though that we would take girls in to consideration, so we could make thiscard with pink, red, and purple. Typical colours that girls like.This would show the audience who the recipe is for without them needing the read the card first or looking at theimage of the food.What printing process/printing method could be used?Die-cut, we think that this would be interesting to use as girls are quite creative but like simple things, so we feel thatthis would be good for us to use, because we considered doing this on the card it would also give the audience the ideathat the food they are about to see it creative and will be fun to make.This would also help the card to look more 3D but in a different way as if you can see through the card.What font could be used?Because this card is going to be for young children I think that we should use playful writing again so that it’s fun forthem to look at but this time use more simple text which has flicks, (sans-serif).What could the layout of the card be?The layout of the card could be quite playful with flowers and girly things all over it so that it fits to them but so neat sothat the reader can see everything clearly.
What kinds of media could be used?Cartoon, this is because it will be different to the other cards rather than using high quality photographs wecould use cartoon instead so that it’s different to look at.What theme food could be used?We could do a summer dessert for young children because children always like something sweet to cool themdown when it’s been a hot day, this would be good because summer is quite a long period so we could makequite a lot of money.What kinds of food could be used?We could do a ice cream dessert with strawberries or something in so that its got some pink tones in for thegirls which will probably make them enjoy it more.Target audience – Who will the food be made for?As you can tell from the idea’s this dessert would be for young girls, this is because of the colour scheme andthe actual food itself.The target age for this would also be young girls because It’s quite a playful card which will be fun for them tolook at and make.

It will also fitin with the traditional colours of a wedding and Christmas cards.What process/printing method could be used?The printing method that could be used is varnishing, this is so that it looks elegant and classy to fit in with theChristmas/Wedding theme.This will show people what kind of card it is just from briefly looking at it.What font could be used?Because the colour scheme is gold and white, we would consider using a sans-serif font which is quite a fancyfont because of it’s flicks.What could the layout of the card be?I think that the layout for the card should be as simple as possible because that’s what weddings tend to belike, though Christmas tends to be a busy time of year so we could add some swirly graphics coming from thecorner of the pages.
What kinds of media could be used?I think that photography and graphics could be used as I think it will make the card look better if we were touse high quality images.I also think that we should use graphics on the back of the page so that there can be some swirly images on theback so that it looks minimal for wedding bit but busy for the Christmas part.What theme food could be used?I think that there should be too much colour in the food because the recipe is going to be for weddings as wellbut there can be some colour.What kinds of food could be used?I think that we should do desserts, for example a fruit cake as this is a traditional Christmas pudding and what atypical wedding cake is made out of.Fruit could also be used like strawberries.Target audience – Who will the food be made for?The target age for this card would be both men and women this is because it’s for both people as it’s forweddings and Christmas.The target age will be middle age people as people dont tend to get married when they are older and certaintynot when they are younger.

This will be suitablefor weddings.

But not bright colours, I would use palecolours as this card would be for Easter.This would give the audience the idea that the food is delicate as pale colours will be being used rather than bright andbold ones.What process/printing method could be used?Emboss, this would be used for a chocolate chick coming out of the chocolate Easter egg.This will make the card exciting to look at and also make it look 3D.What font could be used?A mature yet child-ish font will be used for this card as Easter is something for adults and children to enjoy. Though thismight show unprofessionalism but it would be ok for a one of event that only happens once a year.What would the layout of the card be?The layout of this card would be simple again with a little cartoon image of something included in the ingredients onthe back page s that it’s fun for children.

Summary of FeedbackWhat do you agree with from your feedback?I agree with all my feedback as I think that it has all been done fairly but I agree mostly with the first idea, thisis because the person said,‘The colours suit the theme such as vegetarians – green/yellow. I like the idea of doing a meal and then havinga desert afterwards. I like the fact that the recipe cards will be suitable for both genders. The idea of havingvarnish for a finished idea on the card is a good idea.’I agree with this as I also thought it was good to do the card for both men and women, I also thought that itwas a good idea to do a dessert after which they agreed with, they also put that making the card varnished is agood idea which I also think is a good idea because it will help to make the card look more professional.What do you disagree with from your feedback?I don’t agree with the feedback that was given on idea 3 about the font the person said,‘I think that the font could look more fancy and delicate as it is aimed at girls.’I don’t agree with this because if the card is going to be for young girls I don’t think it does need to be morefancy and delicate as that would push it more towards teenagers.
