Design of the Email Receipt
The Sketch is usually my first step but in this situation it isn't but i decided to merge all of the prior processes with these.
BEFORE THE SKETCH
So before getting to sketch stage i did a search on google to find out what key features were important in an email receipt and wrote them down.
Next i decided on the kind of industry i wanted to design an email receipt for and did a cross check to find out if the features i had written down were still relevant and included more. I'm aware that i could probably have just gone with this in the first place, to choose what industry i was going to design a receipt for but since i'd never really received an email receipt i had to first find out what the conventional receipt was and that informed my decision to choose the industry i decided on.
Next i searched google for design concept so i was basically looking at what others had done which brings me to this stage. My idea concept wasn't from any of the designs i saw but i guess deep down i was looking to see how much freedom to be creative i had, to be know if there was a certain format or style after realising there wasn't this concept came to mind and so i sketched it
(2) First draft
There's something about using the color grey that makes designs seem like mockups and so i decided to do a rough draft with the idea of putting what i had on paper on my screen. So i downloaded the resources i needed and got to work on this. After i had put it exactly on my screen as it was on paper it seemed a bit too plain hence the decoratons but i kept the colors minimal because i really wanted this to come off as a draft
(3) More Than a draft
Colors are not my greatest strength so i use an online color pallette to choose the right kind of colors. There really was no particular reason why i chose the color pink. i just did. I was in actual fact done with the design at this point. The decoration on the artboard remained grey on purpose. i didn't want to draw attention to it but i also didn't want it plan.
So the idea was by the time the decorations are noticed the design in general looks different.
As for my choice of font, since i'd already chosen the color pink and the dress ordered looked like a ball gown. i decided on a font that made it seemed more feminine and chose cursive because it seemed to me like if i was being invited to royal ball then the invitation would probably have its fonts in cursive so in a way i had a Royal ball theme in my head and went along with it. That also influenced my choice of elements for the decoration
(4) & (5) Final Version and Extra
For the final version i just added some finishing touches like the white background. It still was looking a bit plain before i applied that.
and for version 4.5 i was just trying to see how other colors would look as the background color
