Class Project 01 - Create Your Own Brief

Hi, everyone. It is time for your very first bit of home. We're not gonna call it homework. We're gonna call it uh class projects. They're here to, you can ignore them. You totally can. But it will really help you solidify what we've learned. And my goal is so that you can create something through this course that is unique from the course material that I'm making. OK? That is great for your own portfolio. OK? So um the first one is to create your own brief. So we saw in the last video that I made a brief. Where is my brief? So that's my one. What I want you to do is go to this website that uh we've just created here. OK. So random project generator.com. OK. I want you to enter your last name uh or your pet's name. OK? Or a friend's last name, somebody's name. OK. OK. For the company and into your location was where I was born. You can put in Ireland as a country if you're in a big country, put in your state or town, whatever it is. OK. So, and then click generate my project. OK? Make ...

sure you're on the UXU I tab there and click my project and you should get something unique for you. Ok. So I've got shadow surfboards. Oh, it's kind of cool. OK. And so this gets randomly generated. Do not hit retry. The red button is red. I, I just want you to pick the first one you got. Even if you're like, hm. Ok. Some of the more tricky objects. Ok. And tricky, uh, personas is one of those things that will really help build you as a designer. OK. Don't hit it. Um And yeah, have a little read through. So, um you're gonna get something unique and it's gonna be unique in some ways as in the company name and the product. But the actual thing we'll build together will all be the same kind of structure. So we'll follow the same task flow. You're gonna use homepage, product features, check out and confirmation whatever the product is. And it just means though that when you do start following along, OK, we're still going to draw a button and it's still gonna say learn more, but you're gonna be using colors that are good for your persona. Um When I say bring in an image instead of bringing headphones, you're gonna bring in surfboards or whatever your product is. OK? You're still gonna have, you know, an image in a circle. So they're gonna have the same uh structure, but at least at the end, you're gonna have something kind of unique for your own portfolio. Plus it's gonna get you thinking about your own persona uh and how you might kind of design for them. You get the idea to follow along in this course, but using your own company name, OK, which I'll get you to make a little bit later on in picking your own images and colors for that brand. So once you've done it, you either take a screenshot of it or copy it to clipboard or download it as a PNG and just store it away on your computer or your phone ready for later in the course, we're gonna put them together on a kind of a brief and task slow page later on another thing I want you to do. So we've got our kind of company name and persona. So you've downloaded it, copied it a clipboard something, you've got it somewhere stored away and let's bring in the task flow as well because we're all using the same one. So it's gonna allow me to show you something strange, weird and interesting for fig A fig A really wants everything to be in the cloud online. OK. So go back to your kind of home page or if you're on a PC, go to the little fig A icon and go to the one that says it's about here, it says go to files or something similar be on your drafts and if you want to import a fig my file, OK? Rather than it being shared with you. This is this little icon up here. Import, look for that icon. It has moved around in the past, give it a click. OK? And in your exercise files, there's one called task flow dot fig. OK? Load that in there and we'll use that later on as well. You can open it. Have a look. OK? Basically, it is just oh Tesla, OK? We'll copy and paste that and combine it later in the course. But you've got your task flow, you have got your own brief release persona and name and you're ready to carry on. So go do that as homework and I will see you in the next video.
