My thoughts on Emma’s blog post: Hi Emma! First and foremost I wanted to say that I was absolutely captivated by the enthusiasm in presenting your pitch! I was able to focus on both the spoken word and the visuals presented on the screen. The research for your project on ‘Building 29’ feels thorough and well thought of. Whilst discussing the target audience, it’s already clear how your project will be able to benefit them and how accessible these resources are. I love how you have all of your social media channels set up, with a clear and distinguishable logo! I believe adding something such as a ‘linktree’ in the bios of your social media accounts would be beneficial. This would allow audience members to find all of your accounts and any other additional resources in one place. Your blog posts perfectly accompanies your pitch video on expanding on the hopes and goals for your project and element of collaboration that you have utilised for this project. The social utility is clearly explained in both your pitch video and within the blog post. This project demonstrates the social utility for your target audience as well as utilising this in your future portfolio. As expressed in your mood board via your blog post, I think it’ll be interesting to see how the content you produce will be showcased on your social media platforms and how current students and future students will be able to engage with them. I’d definitely be interested to see how you plan to monitor these responses or engagement and ways that you could incorporate these insights into your project. This is a great start Emma, I can’t wait to see your project develop and flourish.
My Thoughts on Tori’s blog post: Hi Tori! Your thumbnail for your pitch video immediately caught my eye and I’m excited to dive into your project. I noticed that the first couple seconds of your pitch video has a blank screen, I think a title screen would be a great addition for your pitch introduction! I loved your enthusiasm in demonstrating your experience in the social media field and your past experiences and projects that you’ve been involved in. Your methodology was clear and precise. It outlined the new role that you’re taking on in. I enjoyed how your explanation of the creative services time is created for a broad audience and can be understood by someone who is not familiar with the digital media field. It’s great how you explained that you want people to find and access your services through a way that is simple and not overly-detailed. Your blog post elaborates on the ideas that you have expressed in your pitch video and allows for readers to further understand the benefits of your project. I think that your audience persona board does a great job at highlighting exactly who the target audience is, what the audience is looking for and what part of their lives that this project will benefit them on. I think adding your reflection on what you wish was available while you were at uni is a great addition to your blog post, I think this adds a really nice personal touch to building this project. The social utility of ‘the creative services team’ is clearly defined for both the means of others and for yourself. This is really nice work so far, Tori! I’m excited to see your future developments and how this will further benefit your future portfolio.
