Collectible items

This is the clear holder that I've used to store the items that Miss Ivy has told us. So far I have collected 3 posters that I think is badly designed.
I think there are too many products in the poster. It's hard for me to focus in any of them.
I don't like the colours used. The model has the same colour on her hair, make up and clothers. It doesn't stand out.
I like the simplicity of this poster. Unfortunately, I'd prefer to have the watch worn by someone in order to give me a better idea on how it looks like being worn.

Having started to do this task, I have understood my taste better and what kind of things to avoid when designing a poster. I hope to learn more as I collect more items throughout this module.

It's great that you actually posted each poster and explained what's wrong with it. Interesting to read about your point-of-view about the poster designs and most of it I agree with. However, I wish to see your other pieces from the collectible items as well!

I liked how you picked out certain posters and showed why you felt they were bad designs. I think you're the first person I've come across who's specifically stated what they didn't like about the posters, and have given all the three bad designs. I do think it would have been better if you had given a brief description of the task first, and perhaps your experience, and then proceeded with the three bad poster design samples. I'd have also liked to see a snap of all the items collected in the folder, perhaps jumbled together, just to get an idea of what kind of images you found over all. Rest, good job!

I think you forgot to include the part where you explain what the picture represents. Like what's a caricature or an illustration. The critiques were good to read though.
