HOW TO TAKE & GIVE CRITIQUE

Rules for critique
•NO personal attacks
•Use ONLY references to: design elements, aesthetics, and demographics(audience)
•Always be positive.
•Remember that negativity doesn't mean bad.
•Don't tell to fix...suggest to improve.

When giving critique to a piece of art, you follow some certain steps.

STEP ONE
•Comment on whether you like the work, or not.
•Liking artwork is a personal taste.
•What one may like, another may not. Don't be afraid to stay you don't like it, but remember to state things you think the artist did WELL.

STEP TWO
•Point out something the artist did well, or several things.

•Once pointed out, you need to describe why the things he/she did so well were so effective, or moving, etc...Try to focus more on this step than the next one.

STEP THREE
•Point out ONE negative thing about the work.

•It's always good to give some negative critique in a design.
•Remember, NEGATIVE does not necessarily mean bad.
•If there was something major in the deisgn that the artist didn't do particularly well, then point it out and give some suggestions on how he/she may improve on that area.

STEP FOUR
•Give an overall summary of the design.

•Give a small summary and an encouragement to the artist.
You may describe any emotions or attachments you felt to the design while reviewing it in this step.

I GOT ALL OF THIS INFORMATION FROM MY NOTES IN GRAPHIC DESIGN CLASS.
SO I DO NOT TAKE CREDIT IN THIS INFORMATION.
I WILL ALSO BE DOING MORE TUTORIALS ON HOW TO BECOME A GOOD GRAPHIC DESIGNER, SO LOOK FORWARD TO THEM.

There are different types of giving critique.
Respectful, and telling it's pure shit.

I think you got this today is so you can move along and live in a respectful and safer society within your school.
Although this will not imply to everyone.

Some people just don't see the need in being so polite and clear.
They just simply say, I don't like. It's ugly.

Well, this is one of the respectful ways. ;P
I got these notes like the first week of school. <.<

People can use this kind of way, so they can avoid conflict.

BUT, yes, you're right. Some people don't like being polite or clear.
I put this here so people will know at least one way of being polite while giving critique, even if they don't like the piece or person.

I think you're talking about constructive criticism not critique. I can criticize something by saying it's complete shit.

Well, the page for my notes says "Critique" o.o but I guess people can decipher if it's Critique or constructive criticism in their mind.

I see. GFX is not for everyone. But at least you got to experience some of it, right ;D?

The only thing I dislike about it is the copyrighted photos, it's just a hassle...then you have to buy photos, THEN have the receipt if you win a contest or something... :/
