CIP: Kick starter: Accelerator presentation slides

Overall fro m the presentation, that I threw together, while it was a little tough trying to get it all prepared, but I felt quite comfortable by how I just needed to tweak the previous slides from the feedback presentation.
I should remember to consider making the information more brief, and simple next time.

I honestly think, that overall, we could’ve presented the cards a lot better. I know for a fact, that I really want to return to the illustrations I contributed and edit them, so they’re presentable.


Kick starter: Testing, video and presentation

While we clammed together our ideas, we got together a week before the presentation and started testing out our video concept.
Hubert was in charge of this part, as he was assigned this role, but it was pretty fun getting to see how this would come out.

Although, we may have to consider working and managing our time more efficiently next time we do this or something similar.

Accelerator presentation:
As I had done the majority of the presentation after I got feedback from the previous one, I felt comfortable with putting the slides together again. It didn’t take too long, but the feedback after wards was a great help, as it let us know what we could of done and how we could of approached it further, if we wanted to. I doubt we’ll take this any further, but seeing the video together was admittedly humorous, but I think we do need to consider re-taking photos of the mockups again and make them more ‘festive’ to help with the theme.

Kickstarter research and development

After out presentation feedback, there wasn’t a lot for us to continue on with our extensive idea, so we discussed between the four of us, that it would be a wise idea to keep to the Christmas theme, as it helped to bring our idea together overall. It had a Christmas theme and we were easily able to pull together the colour scheme, which then led us on to planning out what we were going to do as a group and how we were going to show these ideas that we had.

We decided to have two illustrations per member to put in to the card designs.

I decided to mock up and work on our tree reward design– For every customer who sells over £10, they get a free foldable tree which will come in a4 or a5.

I wasn’t too keen on having the tree have sharp edges, because we have to be wary of our target audience, and as we were aiming for kids and young parents, it would be on our conscience, if a child were to cut themselves trying to put up a foldable tree, so I decided to round the edges off on that.

And as for my role, continued to do some work on our social media pages, but it was just dealing with all of the little details, such as contact, information and what we’re selling.

I decided to take on board the research part, to help give some ideas to the group. For example, I suggested the zombie cards Kickstarter campaign, as they had some unusual and interesting ways of how they approached their audience with their idea.

As for the powerpoint presentation, I felt that we weren’t exactly clear on what we’re putting through, but luckily enough

CIP: Kick Starter brief

//Insert cheer here//

Starting off with a new brief right before the end of term, I’ve been looking forward to finding out what this last brief was about and now I know.

Returning back to our Christmas creatures group, we planned out how we were going to approach our idea and how we were going to develop it.

While last time, Iwas a little concerned about time management, but I do get the sense that we may be able to reach our deadline goal, if we focus and work as a team. Being able to work together and co-ordinate what roles we have with in the group was a great start. I’ve been put in charge of the social marketing and powerpoint; something I have a bit of experience with from managing several websites in the past, but I do admit, that Ilove being in control of a webpage or a social media account and being able to try and put out our ideas and progress in to the world wide web.

Changes made to the project?We’ve decided to make the cards seasonal. So, instead of it being christmas creatures, we’re managing 5 different holiday seasons– Christmas, Valentines, Halloween and Easter. The last holiday is to be decided soon, but we each have our own role. Luckily, iwas able to snag Easter. To be honest, I like drawing Rabbits and bunnies, and any creature that has fluffiness to them, but it would be really intriguing to see how  I turn this ‘cute’ creature in to an actual easter-like monster.
