9:45 Design the Band 

We as a “firm” will help create apparel, graphics, and an online image for a band of choice. Please choose a band that less recognized. No Pink Floyd or Arctic Monkeys. We are going to act as if we have the time to interview this group. We need to garner as much information about them as possible. We’ll use this time to watch videos of the group, listen to their music, and ask questions about them as individuals and as a group.

The plan is to create all content like their Website, social media, posters, brochures, business cards, CDs, apparel, photography, mission, etc. As a “firm”, we will have full creative freedom with minimal feedback from the band throughout the process. At the end of the 2-3 weeks, we will have a massive critique session to see how our content connects to our bands.

things we have completed:

  

brochure:

Feeding off the interview, mission statement and style guide, we will create a brochure as sort of a hand out at a gig. Brochures are generally used in a more business-like environment, but in this case, we will use them to provide more information about the band. In our interview, hopefully we get enough information to fill this up.

Here are things you should have in your brochure:

  • Mission Statement
  • “About Us”
  • Social Media / Contact

Here Are some things you MAY want in your brochure:

  • Band Members
  • Tour Dates
  • Merch
  • Albums

When complete upload as brochure.pdf to your week_32 folder.
