This mandatory assignment was made up of the learning activities that we have been working on for the past four weeks.
You can read all about the process in my previous posts:

Point to Sale




Week 29 – Point to Sale

Part A

Consider the touchpoints of your brand in general (to ensure that all the elements work together) and then focus on your packaging. Design a set of Point of Sale elements that will promote your product in-store. The set can consist of however many elements you choose. It can be in any format that you would like it to be. Please consider the following:

  1. Can customers clearly see your product in your Point of Sale elements?
    Do you use your Point of Sale to also showcase your actual product?
  2. Brand Integration
    Does it integrate with the brand’s look and feel?
  3. Designed to sell!
    Does it persuade customers to buy your product?

Part B

Brand manual.
Take pictures of your elements and include them in a presentation of your brand called a brand manual or a design manual. Your brand manual should have a minimum of 7 pages and include logo, color scheme and chosen typography as well as the different elements produced during this 4 week project period (brochure, infographic, packaging, point of sale).
Hand in your brand manual as a PDF.


Tip: Take a picture of a shop’s interior and use Photoshop to show your Point of Sale elements within a “real” environment.

Practicing Photography – pt. 1

I work the evening shift at a bookstore two nights a week, and this week I brought my SLR and my tripod with me so that I could try out night shots on my way home from work.
I ended up with a few photos that I really liked, and I got very lucky as the clouds parted and the stars appeared as I was shooting. Shooting at night was a lot of fun, and I definately see more night-shoots in my future 😀
