CLASSES:  C1; C2; C3; C4
DATE ISSUED:  Week beginning 02/02/15
DATE DUE:  Week beginning 15/06/15

4.    Organic/ Natural World – Describe at least three different items of your colour in the natural world
5.    Man-made Object – describe a man-made object in your colour and the effect of using that colour ?
•    Bring work in on designated times to be assessed by teacher and a percentage mark given.
•    All the information compiled by your research will be submitted in a book designed by you taking into consideration the design elements and principles of your layout and the construction of the book needs to be neat and professional.

The book will be as creative as possible in the style and material of your choice and can be any shape and/or binding but must include the following:
•    To be no larger than A3 and must include a reference list or bibliography
•    Select relevant images from your research and design a layout  to include all 5 subjects
•    Front and Back cover have to be considered as part of the design
•    Must be professionally presented (craftsmanship is important if hand bound)
•    The colour allocated to you in class MUST be the dominant colour you can use the complimentary colour as a contrast
•    Consider the background colour. Try and avoid white unless that is the colour of your book, consider a lighter tone of your colour or the complimentary colour.
•    Consider the colour of the typeface, don’t just automatically use black
