Notes for improvement from feedback:
1. Identification and analysis of the cultural influences on the creativity of a named designer
Although you explained the design of your chosen designer well, there is no explanation of the cultural influences behind his work. You have mentioned that his influence comes from the client identity but it is not clear what this is.
It would have been good to have included more background information on the designer to show his influences and how he developed as a designer. You could have also expanded on others that may have influenced his work.
You touched a little on this with Andy Warhol and other architects it is just a pity you had not expanded this. You could for example have included information about the artistic climate at the time to show what was happening both socially and economically that contributed to the development of the designer?
Inter relationship of the cultural influences with other influences on the work of the designer
Again here as above more information was needed to show how the cultural influences impacted on the designer’s work. For this section you are looking at indirect influences. For example you mention that the designer designs to reflect the client brand but perhaps you could explain this influences behind the brand which in turn has influenced his design approach.
Presentation of case study
The case study was presented to an appropriate standard with clear images to support the written content. These can be labeled, fig 1, 2 etc. This was also referenced well please ensure there is consistency with the structure and spelling. Accessed or not accessed, “available from” and so on.
