Branding Project Progress

It’s the second week of our 3rd Term Project. I chose the Branding Project and for this Friday (Today) we are supposed to bring in a short video of our research and our progress on creating a brand. I will write a bit more in my upcoming blog posts about the project itself and every detail of it. Until then, check out the video!

Use the link below for normal HD quality! I repeat, use the ‘PowToon’ link! Not YouTube player. YouTube gives crap quality because I had troubles exporting the video and I am just posting it as a player just in case the link stops working. Either way, if you have any comments, suggestions or tips, please feel free to comment and write me!

CTS Presentation : “Imagine a world without photographs?”

For the first CTS session after our easter break, we were asked to bring in a presentation by using the Pecha Kucha method of our chosen subject / question of our essay.

The original Pecha Kucha essentially is a short presentation of 20 slides 20 seconds each (more info at http://www.pechakucha.org). We were asked to do a shorter version of 10-12 slides approx. 18 seconds each. I chose my question from my CTS Tutor’s Mark Ingham’s lecture and it is:

SNAP, CRACKLE AND POP: Imagine a world without photographs?

So these are the links to the presentation where I cover and answer Why, How, What, Who, Where and When questions regarding my subject:
