For your classmate, please discussion how successful their design is in the following areas:

  1. The Grid
  2. Color Palette

Please critique the Monday May Design for each classmate in your group. I’ve created the groups below. Please find your classmate’s design on their Tumblr blog. All links to Tumblr blogs are posted in the right-hand column of this site. Please post your comments in the Discussion section of the site in your Group post. Don’t forget to identify which classmate you’re critiquing and be sure to post your comments in the correct Group section!

Please post your designs to your Tumblr blogs ASAP!

If you don’t post your design to your Tumblr blog, your classmates aren’t responsible for critiquing your work and your grade for this assignment will be adversely affected. You’ll also miss out on the opportunity to have others give you valuable feedback!
