GANTT chart so far...

Here is the gantt chart so far, as we have completed projects.  As you can see, it looks a lot greener than before, meaning we are on track for completing for Thursday!  Click to enlarge


We have decided that our product shall be called iBattle and Jamie and I have designed logos for the product.

Here is mine...
This design was going to feature more weapons and colours, but I decided the two red swords against the blood backdrop worked better.  I have made sure to include the "powered by Brainient" tagline as this services will ultimately be promoting the potential of the Brainient software.

Jamie also made this one that features on the twitter page and is a smaller logo to work with.

Response to Formative

The main criticism of our formative was that we stated the obvious a lot and that we needed to make our presentation more concise and focus more on pitching the idea rather than stating what we researched.  When I next meet with my group, I will ask them to make the following changes:

Ladji- He has the final call on the video content; therefore his part of the pitch will form the bulk of the presentation.  He will talk through the video and how the brainient content will work within the video

Attila- Brand Partnerships; she will need to find a small selection of factual broadcasters and educational organisations to partner up with

James- He needs to focus on just a small number of magazines to advertise within, such as National Geographic.  Sites like 4od and BBC Iplayer will be too expensive to advertise on and we would have more luck with more niche broadcasters

Gerome- He needs to focus on the appropriate websites to invest advertising into, like James.  So it would be web sites such as the History Channel web site

Jamie- He will need to create some social networking profiles and simply promote them in his part of our pitch.  He will create the links and then inform the viewers of how they can be accessed and what they may find on them

Gantt chart

Here is the GANTT chart that I have created to assign the rest of my group jobs for this project.  I have assigned these tasks based on the feedback we received from the Formative Pitch.  Click to enlarge.

The green bars highlight how much of a task is done and blue highlights how much is left of the task.

The darker coloured tasks being completed are dependant on the brighter coloured tasks to be completed on time.
