After looking at my postcard mock up/ experiments, I decided that I felt this image worked particularly well on a postcard. I think the colour palette ties in with the chosen colours (pink, blue and white) nicely, for example, the blue jumper and pink rubber glove are key colours are have used throughout my cv and business card.
I chose to create a portrait postcard because I felt the majority of my key images which I would have possibly used are from fashion features in portrait form.
On the reverse side of the postcard, I have left the information/ details and name fairly simple but using the same fonts as the business card etc so it is consistent. Another reason as to why I kept it simple is because I felt the business card had more a design focused typography Logo design, however, I didn’t feel it would look right on the back of a postcard.
The final postcard was printed at Mixam. I chose this company because I was confident with their quality and process as I have used them before. I feel the quality is reflected in the price whilst offering a range of options, papers, designs, which I like. The card is printed on 350gsm uncoated paper. I chose this because I like the matt, natural feel whilst I also feel it feels high quality and ties in with my final magazine.
