D&AD Final

Here is the boards that contribute to the D&AD brief for Honda.

The aim was to design a structure or environment that show cases Hondas rich credentials as a company that society wants to have around in the future.
The concept is made up of an installation that encompasses the publics view on their own future coupled with facts about the Honda brand and their intentions of creating a complete sustainable future.

The installation measures a 5 x 5 Meter structure where the viewer can sit down and interact via an ipad with a touch screen application. The application is divided in to six categories each with a subject relating to Honda.
The viewer is asked a question relating to the particular subject, following a question the next stage of the application offers a fact about Honda and then the chance to find out more about Hondas vision.

The last stage requires the viewers initials and age so that the data can be collected and used by Honda to collect quantifiable data of the wider society.

This week it was the 3rd TLK lecture with 3 new guests including Jane Richardson from Aquent Recruitment Agency, second was Joel Gardner a freelance illustrator who had work at the Aucb in the past, and lastly Chris Wharton a freelance Web designer from London.

This weeks session was all about making as a designer after graduating. Again the emphasis was put on networking and how beneficial it can be to finding a job. Chris' outlook appeared to be realistic claiming the journey will be long and hard knocking on company doors hoping one will give you a shot. and the first year spent mostly sending general emails out in the vague hope of a result.

According to the guests, getting a foot through the door is most of the work, It then comes down to networking and building relationships with companies. Just like last week the conversations turned to debate when the subject of accepting jobs. knowing where to draw the line on the right or wrong job.

Some of the final points discussed at the end were things like networking using sites like Linkedin and Arts Thread but to be careful with Twitter and Facebook
because you just don't know who is watching.

Look forward to the next lecture
