New Baby Cards Research

Card 1

The materials that have been used within the card are:

  • Safety pins
  • Different types of coloured cards and patten cards
  •  small ribbons

From looking at this card I get the feeling of love and happiness. The media used helps evoke this feeling because the artist has laid out the safety pins to tell of story of how a new baby has entered the family. The artist has also cut out pieces of card in to heart shapes and placed in over the new baby to show that the parents love their baby.

The artist has also used bright colours, to convey emotion and meaning, bright colours suggest happiness and joy, which shows that the parents are happy and joyful. The colour pink also suggests that the baby will be a girl, this is because pink is normally seen as a girly colour.

I would say that this piece is quite effective in showing it’s intended message because it is meant to show a story of how a couple, fell in love and had a baby and it does this by using the paper clips to tell a story.

This work has given me the idea of using objects to tell a story or to help convey a message like how the design used pins to help tell his story.

Card 2

d4e40306e252b1d1190604659c10bb87

The materials that have been used within the card are:

  • wool
  • Different types of coloured cards and patten cards
  •  small wooden sticks

The media and material that the design has used gives of the feeling of parenthood, this is because the designer has knitted a small jumper and used the small wooden stick to make it seem like they are knitting needles, this gives the feeling of parenthood because parents would normally made homemade things for their baby.

The designer has also conveyed the meaning through the colour of the wool as well. The wool is white and white suggests pure and innocents and children are known for being pure and innocent.

This card is effective in conveying it’s intended message because it is meant to show that when a baby is born the parents like to make things for them by hand and this is shown by the jumper being knitted.

From this card I have gotten the idea for my baby card to use objects that you would associate with babies, like how the designer used wool to suggest knitting clothing for a baby and so with in my design I will also do the same my showing a teddy bear on one of my cards, which is something that babies and small kids are known for having.

Card 3

The materials that have been used with in the card are:

  • coloured card
  • felt
  • googly eye
  • stitches

The stitches in the design gives the feeling of parenthood, this is because the stitches suggest making homemade clothing and toys for the baby, which is what new parents and grand parents like to do for their kids.

The design has also used felt for the card, felt is know for being soft, this could be linked to the baby’s skin this is because new born babies are known for having very soft skin. The design has also convey meaning through the colour as well. The design use the colour blue for the blanket of the baby, blue is manly seen as a boys colour and so this suggests that the bay is a boy.

I would say that this card is very effective in using materials and media in conveying it’s intended message because it is meant to show that babies’ skin is soft and smooth and this is shown through the use of felt which is also soft and smooth.

This this design I have gotten the idea for my baby card to use colour as a way of suggesting traits about the baby, for example if the card is for a baby baby i will use boy to show that it is a boy and for a girl, I will use pink to show that it is a girl.
