Inspiration for Branding Viral Video

I am doing my viral around the students and what they get up to etc, so I was thinking of ways of displaying people doing various actions that represent the course and was reminded of Kyle Cooper's opening sequence for the film 'Se7en'. Obviously the film is dark and mysterious which I don't intend my viral to be but I saw where I could pull similarities in the actions of what the character gets up to in the titles. I like the idea of using only macro shots so that the small actions take up the entire screen and then that individual could be anyone, so the viewer could be the one in the video, metaphorically! Its a thought anyway :) 
I have also been looking at this site : because it has lots of interesting film titles which I know aren't promotional videos but they give an insight into what to expect in the film and my video will reflect what to expect on the course.

Brand Palette

 I went through a lot of development and experimenting before I settled on my palette. I wanted it to look fun and colourful so that it would be inviting for the audience and encourage them to take an interest in the campaign. I went for quite a simple name style, just the name handwritten in a slightly scripted fashion and the basic envelope as the logo. I decided that the logo could come in a range of shades, depending on where it was being used and what it would suit most.

Urban Graphic

Having a Google about graphic design and graphic blogs and came across this site, i'm not sure if its been mentioned in lecture or not but it was a good find! Has some really interesting and fun designs on it, rather inspirational as well :) seems like the sort of site that would cheer you up to look at it. 

StumbleUpon :)

Fun little website that has loads of random things to 'stumble upon', my first stumble was this drawing site, its fun and cute to play on :)

Final Poster Designs

For my final poster I was thinking of doing something typographical because it appealed to me more than the collage style poster. Although I have included images by cutting them into the shape of letters so that you have to get close up to the poster to see what the images are, that way the viewer has to interact with the poster. My final poster will be something along the lines of these designs.

Poster Designs 3

I have tried to make these posters more geared towards the course and what it offers to the students, I wanted to make them more abstract and dynamic to look at, hopefully that is apparent.

A few more poster designs

These are a few more of the posters that I have designed, I like some of them more than others. I know that some of them are not geared enough towards the course and don't really represent it but i'm not sure how to go about it, I will have to do some more research and take some more photographs. 

Disturbing dancing cat, but fun!

Not sure if this counts as a microsite or anything but my sister showed me it and I found it mildly scary but interesting at the same time! So check it out :)

Art Gallery Pictures

Photographs taken in the gallery! Not on the sly either but managed to get away with taking them, unlike Jeff who got told off hehe. I was quite impressed by how bright and colourful the posters were, especially for the Olympics, maybe it was more fun back in the day, it seems more serious today and more about winning than enjoying yourself and taking part! They're not great pictures but they'll do :) anyways enjoy!

Posters for branding, 1.

These are the first set of posters that I designed for branding, I like some of them more than others but shall have to see how I can push them and develop them further. I didn't really want to include any images on the posters so went for a mostly typographical design. 

500 Word Proposal (or slightly over)

I originally hand wrote my proposal because it seemed strange to word process my 'campaign' when it was trying to promote the benefits of handwriting over typing/texting, but decided for convenience it would be easier to upload this version, there are still some areas that need work and I've already made a few changes since writing this but this is the basic idea i'm going for. Be proud of your own 'personal font' :)
