Brief/Session/Document Title: Fudge Kitchen

Brief

Rebrand and promote the ʻnew lookʼ Fudge Kitchen.

Background / Considerations

The Fudge Kitchen first started making fudge under the name ʻJim Garrahyʼs Fudge Kitchenʼ back in 1983. They now have shops within Bath, York, Cambridge, Canterbury, Windsor, Edinburgh and Oxford. The fudge is also available to buy online in various different forms depending on what you require. The company not only sell fudge in slab form but as a drink and a sauce. The fact the fudge itself comes in various different forms and with these products gives an opportunity to explore various different types of packaging and application of a logo. The online presence of the brand is also just as important as the in store so how can this be changed in order to co-inside with the ʻnew lookʼ brand. How can the current logo design and packaging be capitalized on in order to refresh the brand? Is there any competition as the brand stands currently? Remember who the target audience is, who is likely to buy it and for what purpose. Is there anything that the company currently donʼt have that could be useful to them? For example, a business card.

Mandatory Requirements

Deliverables

Donʼt completely change the brand and the values they currently have, use these to your advantage. Make sure a substantial amount of research is undergone to fully understand the brand and target market. Make sure elements such as the logo are applied in different contexts to show where they would exist.

Logo. Fudge gift packaging with two different size options. Fudge slab packaging including wrapping and stickers to seal it. Drinking fudge packaging. Drinking fudge mug gift set packaging. Fudge sauce labels. Fudge sauce gift set packaging. Paper/carrier bags. Staff uniform re-brand. Shop signage. Website.

Brief/Session/Document Title: Geek Table collective.

Brief

Create and brand a collective with seven other members.

Background / Considerations Personally, throughout this brief I would like to capitalize on my existing collaboration skills and fully understand what goes into creating an event and what can be gained from this. This brief is very much about people skills and how they can be used to your advantage to both promote yourself and gain new contacts. The collective will need a brand to be recognized by others and make it an ofďŹ cial group. What collectives are already existing and what can we do as a group to be different from this? Everyone within the collective has completely different skills so how can we communicate this through the collective and the brand. What roles will each person have in order to make the collective successful and run smoothly? As there a so many people within the collective, there should be a large body of work produced and a range to suit all tastes with each member having different design interests. With the work produced we are going to put on an exhibition in order to further promote ourselves within the industry. This is hopefully going to be held at the White Cloth gallery in Leeds. The theme of the exhibition will utilise our individual graphic design skills.

Mandatory Requirements

Deliverables

Each member of the collective must produce an Branding equal and substantial amount of work to Online presence contribute. An exhibition Promotional material Minimum of four pieces of work each for the exhibition.

Single, married, with children, off to college/university, passing their driving test, losing someone close to them?Remember who you are targeting. Who is going to be actually buying the card for the recipient? Is the card design-led or copy-led (could be a quote, just a ʻhelloʼ or a longer message)?

Brief/Session/Document Title: Tigerprint: Colour.

Brief

The aim of this month's brief comes in two complementary parts. Firstly we want you to create your very own colour palette based on a trend for Spring/Summer 2014. The second part of the brief is that we want you to show it off to its fullest potential by creating a show stopping surface pattern design.This brief will then be extended to create a themed product range aimed at a male target audience using the surface pattern designs created for the original competition brief.

Background / Considerations

Firstly do your research and find your inspiration! Create a board of ideas for your trend including colour references which will help you pull together your final colour palette. Remember inspiration can come from anywhere and everywhere so keep your eyes peeled in those unexpected places! This brief is all about colour so really think about how this works hand in hand with new trends i.e look at how the colour blocking trend influenced fashion and packaging a few years back, the influence of which can still be felt even now. In addition the past 12 –18 months has seen a real focus on a subtle palette of nudes, roses and metallics which perfectly compliments the trend of lace and laser cutting but what's going to come next? Once you have your trend board and your colour palette (using pantone reference where possible) pulled together you are then ready to develop your surface pattern. Men won’t necessarily buy into the same products as women so what different products can be utilised to further target a male audience? Research should inform the product selection.

Mandatory Requirements

Deliverables

Your trend research should have uncovered key A trend Board/ Colour Palette (N.B Please icons and motifs, techniques and colour include reference links where possible). combinations for S/S14 so use these in your A surface pattern. This should be Spring/ development. Remember this brief is primarily about colour so think how you can cleverly use Summer 2014 focused and could be aimed at key motifs and icons with colour to create some either a male or female recipient and could be used across a range of products including; gift spectacular patterns. For example do you reinvent the stripe for males but with some clever bags, wrapping paper, stationery products and greetings cards. colour optical illusions! Diary, Photo album, Pencil case, Pens, Pencils, Folder, Wallet, Photo frame, Phone case.

Brief/Session/Document Title: Branding: Emily Ward.

Brief

Brand Emily Ward as part of her curating and professional practice so she has elements that she is able to give to customers and other professionals in order to promote and develop contacts.

Background / Considerations

Emily is a student on BA (Hons) Fine art with an ambition to become a curator. She needs some branded stationery in order to promote herself as she is going to start stocking her work within a shop and also is taking part in the organization of an arts event during the summer so has been advised to have business cards as this may lead to further opportunities. Branded stationery is usually seen as a very corporate element so I need to consider what I can do in order to link this back to her personal practice and still have the fine art edge about it. How can Emilyʼs current work be used within the branding of the stationery in order to make it very personal to her? Which elements of a stationery range can be adapted for the clients needs?

Mandatory Requirements

Deliverables

Make sure I am constantly feeding back to the Logo/identity client so that they approve of the elements that Business cards are being designed and have always been part ofCompliments slips the decision making. Letterhead Email signature Website banner
