Final Presentation feedback

  • Spelling- a lot of spelling errors
  • Light hearted, easy to read
  • Nice hippos
  • Like the stock and illustrations
  • Would be nice to see white as a third colour, screen printing
  • Made me laugh
  • The title was confusing- no indication of what was inside, what do hippos have to do with lying
  • Appropriate to target audience
  • Like the intriguing outline of the hippo on the envelope
  • Website and book work really nicely with the concept
  • Problem of teachers/ government finding out

Final Crit Communication is s virus

Issues Raised:
Is the webname too open, so if a teacher finds out about it it's over?
Is colour needed? Although on the hotdog fold book it works perfectly well without it.
Possible login?
Hippo needs to be on the website.

Action to be taken:
Packaging needed for the booklet, needs to be disguised so parents aren't aware of what it is.
Choose the stock.

General feedback:
Half really liked the hippo idea and imagery and whilst others liked it worried that it may be too strange that parents would be intrigued and want to visit the website.
Like the booklet on the brown paper.

Progress Crit Communication is a virus

Issues raised:
  • Too ambiguous- make it more focused- just one lot of excuses eg just homework excuses.
  • Colour- needs to be appealing to teens- produce some visual variations
  • Encouraging lying- parents need to not see it
Action to be taken:
  • Narrow topic down
  • Packaging of booklet so parents won't see or bee suspicious
  • Try out colours
General feedback:
  • Stock/colour
  • Liked the idea

Good idea
Few weaknesses to look at but overall really nice idea.

Things we have taken from the crit, things to explore:

  • Text messages- ability for student to be able to be sent a instant text message when in need of a excuse for school.
  • Moderate the website- moderating topics of conversation, explicit language etc.
