Suggest alternative presentation formats
- Read the sample question and answer above. Discuss the elements that have been retained and removed. Discuss parts that refer to changes needed as a result of the proportions of a new presentation format.
- Look through some magazines and identify a visual communication. Suggest an alternative presentation format for one of them. Describe the changes that might need to be made to suit that presentation format.
- For an extension activity, consider changing the field of design and swapping from two-dimensions to three-dimensions as well as suggesting an alternative presentation format. Can you do it?
