Brief 11 To be issued at Tutorial Eleven This week’s lecture was about challenging a ‘traditional’ brief, where part of the solution has already been decided, usually through media allocation (eg. who’s to say that the right answer to a business problem is a TV ad?) So this week, we’re giving you a business problem to solve. You can come up with any solution you see fit. We don’t want to limit your thinking in any way. There are no boundaries, but ‘simple’ is always good. Listed below are some examples of thinking outside the box. You can look up the case studies on Youtube for inspiration. OPTION 1 Client: News Limited Problem: Readership of tangible newspapers continues to fall as people are getting their ‘news fix’ online.

How can we encourage people to buy ’traditional’ newspapers or how can we find a better way to charge readers for accessing news online?

(Children are playing pass-the-parcel with iPads with news sites on their displays, which are wrapped up with sticky-tape, instead of newspaper).

1. Print Advertisements:

Aim: To show people that there are many more uses for a newspaper than just reading, and to make them question what would happen if newspapers died out.

Answer: The Newspaper. More than the news.

Problem: How can we encourage people to buy ‘traditional’ newspapers?

More than the news.

One of the neighbours opens their door to see what is on their doorstop. The camera follows their vision down to a smashed-up iPad with a news site on its display.

The fly then lands on the table in front of him, to which he grabs the Kindle and smashes the fly with it, like you would a newspaper.

The Newspaper.

Close-up of the boy throwing something over his shoulder whilst still riding his bike. You can’t see what it is, but it’s presumably a newspaper. The throwing of the object is then followed by a loud crash. This continues as the boy rides up the street.

A buzzing noise is heard in the distance. A fly then flies in front of the man’s face, to which he tries to shoo away. The fly continues to bother him, and the man keeps trying to unsuccessfully shoo the fly away.

A man is shown reading a news site on his Kindle.

Brief 9

To be issued at Tutorial Nine Client: Initiative

beyondblue: The National Depression


beyondblue is a national, independent, notfor-profit organisation working to address issues associated with depression, anxiety and related disorders in Australia.

Media: Online Target Audience:

Facebook users with grandparents/a grandparent

Single-minded proposition:

To provide the elderly with an easy communication tool to reconnect with society

Background/ proof of proposition: Scenarios of social exclusions experienced by older persons pose serious risks to their sense of identity, well-being and will to live. It is beyondblue’s belief that reconnecting the elderly with their Grandchildren can offer viable avenues for lowering these risks by reducing older people’s experiences of social exclusion. It is known that social media networks, such as facebook, are avidly used by the younger generation, therefore it is through this avenue that beyondblue hopes to encourage the elderly to join facebook. Why facebook? It has been proven that access to social media enables access to revenue streams, appropriate care, social networks, and providing channels for civic participation, cultural activities, learning and skills development opportunities (including access to advice and advocacy). By introducing elderly people to Facebook, we believe that this action has the ability to improve quality of life, in terms of social contact, entertainment and sense of value within their family, while also providing a means by which older people may be introduced to and eventually embrace appropriate technologies for their own interests.

‘facepal’ constantly works as the ‘middle man’ between both parties and will continue to post any activity on the Grandparent’s wall to their home, and the post they send back will be translated through to the Grandparent’s facebook account.

(6) ‘facepal’ then accepts the Grandchild’s friend request on behalf of the Grandparent. The Grandchild can now further contact the Grandparent through the account made for them.

(1) Sponsored ad on facebook, inviting younger people to contact their grandparents.

(5) ‘facepal’ creates a facebook account for the Grandparent and posts all replies and other actions from the Grandparent on her behalf, through her account.

(2) Grandchild enters in Grandparent’s details onto ‘facepal’ (a facebook app by beyondblue). They can also add an additional message if they wish.

(4) Granparent responds to the friend request by sending her reply to the address already supplied on the pre-paid envelope.

(3) Grandparent receives the friend request in the mail.

‘facepal’ Explanation: By reconnecting Grandchildren with their Grandparents in environments that both parties are comfortable with, it encourages the contact to continue for a longer amount of time. It’s combining old school communication with new school communication tools. There’s a constant cycle between both parties, where ‘facepal’ constantly works as the ‘middle man’, translating online content (wall posts, photo posts etc) to real world content (letters, photos etc in the mail) and vice versa. Not only will this initiative help to reconnect Grandchildren with their Grandparent’s, it will also help to familiarise the Grandparent’s with the facebook lingo. Furthermore, this may, in the future, encourage them to eventually join facebook, as they won’t be so daunted by the prospect now that they have an insight to how it works.
