Gustav Johansson

I came across some work created by Art Director and Director Gustav Johansson, this is a great example of how to present your work as a designer. During my tutorial on tuesday I was told to think about how to present my work for the D&AD BBC brief that I am currently working on. I showed my visualizations to Martin and Phil during this tutorial and the main concern I felt that was mentioned was how it could be presented as a final solution. Rather than simply having square boxes of a website with pieces of type dotted off explaining each page. I feel that this way of communicating shown by Johansson would work well for the final presentation of my idea. Note as Phil stated in my tutorial D&AD briefs should be a really good idea, really well executed.

Explaining skype visually


After developing many ideas that I have thought of for the D&AD brief that I am currently working on I have decided to work on one idea which I feel is solid enough to enter the D&AD awards. My idea is to allow users to watch BBC content at the same time, for example if one user lived in Scotland and the other lived in England, and they both happened to want to watch TV together but are not able to because of the distance between them. My product will allow users to interact with each other and watch BBC content together. Its similar to Skype except that Skype only allows users to see each other, where as my product is designed so that users will feel as though the are sitting next to one another by creating a product places the users into a virtual room.

The video above is a great example of how Skype works, it clearly explains what the product does and how it works. And I feel is another strong way of presenting an idea across to the viewer.

After my tutorial for my D&AD BBC brief with Martin and Phil I have been thinking of different ways to present my final idea. As having square images of a website is not the best way to present an idea. The first image that popped into my head was the Apple i phone advert, this is a perfect example of a great way of presenting an idea, its clear simple and communicates to the viewer exactly how to use the product.
