In the project “Do New Things” (Nieuwe Dingen Doen), the goal is for students to gain practical experience working on a project at a company, while still having available expertise to help them achieve success with the project. Processes include ideation, research, concepting, prototyping and working in teams using the Dutch project development method known as Project Driven Creation.
I worked in a project team of five students for the company Kerckebosch Media, where a cross-media concept was developed. This concept was based around their need to communicate and provide information about their offering of offline events (e.g. organizing debates and readings).
The main products ended up being:
- a concept and prototype database of all information from all readings for their clients;
- a prototype Drupal-based website that serves as a microsite for each of their offline events;
- a Mailchimp newsletter system to inform their clients.
I have mainly contributed to the first and second ideas, developing wireframes, prototypes a functional design and documentation for the two websites.
