Taking constructive criticism (even though everyone thinks I can’t)

I have been looking through my passed two projects and figuring out how I can take my criticism from presentations and crits so I can improve my final outcome and grade. I first looked at Thinking Types, the final outcome as a front cover and two double page spreads about a chosen artist (I picked Vince Frost)
From the crit I had a number of opinions which I have decided to pull up on and change my designs, I have taken print screens so I can show you the before and after shots!
Someone told me that I hadn’t followed my placements on one of my pages as it was too close to my spine which was true! That was a big’n! I then looked at the front cover, and Shirley, my tutor had picked up the layout and how the text was getting slightly lost within my frost illustration. So I moved around my title, lined them up with my guides and changed the size of my text ‘Vince Frost’ I also moved this around to find the best fit within my illustration. I am now very happy with the overall outcome and will print this design off as this is now my main and final design.
