Part 1 - Band
Feedback from the seminar yesterday was.. My current designs don’t lend themselves to the rock genre enough. Which I do agree with however I didn’t want to go down the cliche route of grunge and lightning. I need to find a middle ground so that the genre can be put across easily on a shop shelf. I’m hoping to do this with photography some how. I also have to consider the mini size which covers appear online and on ipods.
Outcomes include Logo, EP cover, Microsite, Merch, Poster, Flyer/ad
Deadline: 27th Feb
Part 2- Salford Type Foundry
Me and Megan are going to work together on this one. Basically we want to get STF more interactive. Firstly we need to add a CMS (content management system) so that when we graduate the site can easily be update in a similar way to posting on tumblr by new 3rd years. For that we are hoping to use a service called Perch.
Other outcomes will include some form of competition/ type fight for which we need promotion material, trophy and mini site. Digital magazine for iPad (content- interviews, how to upload, moving type, useable type?) Promotional Zine. I also like the Bay Horse idea of getting students to design a letter creating an alphabet/ wallpaper like shape christmas. As well as updating existing pages of the site.
Deadline: 31st March
Part 3- Undecided
Deadline: 7th May
