When you are designing graphics, consider the audience and purpose and the basics of good design. These are composition, use of colour, fonts, size and position.
Ask yourself the following questions to help you decide your goals:
Before you start, it is always useful to sketch your initial design ideas on paper. Getting your initial ideas down on paper first will help you have a clear idea about what you want to produce. Ask a friend or your teacher to check over your initial ideas to ensure you are fulfilling the requirements of the task. This could save you time in the long run.
Remember to scan in any sketches and add them to your portfolio so the examiner can see your initial design ideas.
