After looking back on the designs I had made, I felt that they were too literal in terms of representing music and the ideas and concepts were too basic, anyone given the brief could have come up with a similar idea given a few minutes. So to improve my work I went back and developed my ideas, and attempted to make the design less literal and more successful.
I then had to present my working process and design to a member of the LGBT badge company. I felt that the presentation went well and the feedback given was constructive
In the end I decided to use the design where a composers stick leads on to the LGBT text as I was given advice and I felt that it was important to take on board what the feedback from an LGBT representative himself had to say.
