Happy Friday DMIers! I hope you’re enjoying the rain.
I wanted to pass along a few more resources to help with your projects:
- An 8-minute Guide to App Landing Pages from Medium provides insight into product design but also how to structure your Value Proposition. So, this should help with Brief #8 and your product mockup.
- I’ve shared quite a few pitch tips already, but here are two more sources found via Jennifer Meadows in MADT: How to Avoid Death by PowerPoint and Legendary Startup Pitch Decks and What You Can Learn From Them.
Schedule to Finals
As we discussed in class, the university released the final exam schedule, which means I adjusted our schedule to close out the semester. Here it is:
Week of Nov. 6: Same as current schedule.
Nov. 13: Brief 9 due and three working screens of your product are due. I strongly encourage you to have a full rough prototype instead of just three screens.
Nov. 15: no class since Debra will be in San Diego on a J&PR business trip.
Nov. 27 (day we come back from Thanksgiving break): full drafts of Make $ Plan and product mockup due. We’ll do an intensive critique in class.
Nov. 29: open lab to finalize work.
9 a.m., Friday, Dec 1: Make $ Plan and product due. You’ll be emailing your Make $ Plan to me. The URL to access your product will be before the Executive Summary section.
- I’ll email the class when the web page is ready and reviewers can access the needed files.
Pitch presentations will take place Dec. 4, 6 and 15.
- Dec. 15 final exam time slot is noon – 1:50 p.m.
Have a great weekend.
