Three days ago each and every one of us on this module attended the ‘Concept Critique’. We each presented our pitches under timed conditions, followed by questions and feedback. I felt that I had prepared for my presentation well, as well as producing handouts for the students and supervisors.
I feel that now I have the first deadline completed I can really focus on my Pitch Documentation. I want to ensure the document holds professionalism accompanied with strong graphics, colour palette and content. I need to finalise the last few pages that are currently incomplete regarding content. These include: Design, the Gantt Chart, Contents and Bibliography. My gantt chart is underway, however I am having real difficulty in adapting the time bars of each task. Merlin is automatically fixing tasks to specific dates which is very frustrating.
A key part of my research is speaking to freelancers and finding out what information my audience want to receive on my website. Therefore, I have handed out questionnaires in which, so far, I have received six responses. I will continue to distribute these to gain more information to help with my project. In addition to this, I have drawn up wire frames of the website and its navigation and completed the digital versions of these on Illustrator.
I intend over the next few weeks to fully understand how I can use Hype to its best potential, in preparation to begin to produce my prototype during the middle of November.
