Charity: Make a Wish

This was the final brief of the semester and the first one I had to do alone. I learned that working alone is extremely difficult, because you have no one to bounce ideas off of. The task was to create a campaign for a charity and I chose Make a Wish. The photographs and stories are from the real wish stories that Make a Wish has helped. It is an amazing charity and I loved the opportunity to learn more about them while creating this campaign.

Below is my first long copy advertisement. I’m more of a visual person so it was a new experience creating an advertisement like this.

Little BigShot

Brief 6 was our first television commercial brief so we were diving into the unknown. My group of 3 created two different campaigns with very different ideas. For both campaigns we needed to include Bertie BigShot.

First was that with Little BigShot nature works for you.  The script and storyboard are below.

Brief five is one of my favorites that we have done this semester. We were tasked with an Anti-Litter Campaign and I think our results were great. We actually came up with two campaigns. The first you can see below where the target audience was not the one that we were supposed to address.


Below is our second and better campaign. I found it very emotive.

Bonnie Beer

For our forth brief we were tasked to create a brand identity and campaign for a brand new beer for Tennent’s that was a hybrid of an Ale and a Lager. In a group of three we came up with Bonnie and wanted to show how great moments last longer. This is one of the briefs that I am the least happy with, because I think it is evident that we struggled. Non the less these are the best ones.

Garner’s Pickled Onion

Now on to the third brief at Napier. Once again it was done with two classmates. We decided to illustrate how daring it was to eat these pickled onions. We created quite a few, but these are a three of the best ones. Geoff Cliff Matt

Visit Scotland

This was my second brief at Napier. In a group of two classmates and myself we were asked to great a campaign to highlight the amazing year 2014 will be for Scotland. These are some of the best solutions.

Water Brief

Our first brief at Napier was to create a brand identity and campaign for a new brand of water. We decided on the name Fior which is pure in gaelic. This project was done with 3 other classmates. Here are a few of the best ones.

Motion Graphics

Today I just started my Motion Graphics class. I’ve done some super basic animation and I decided to dig them up. They were crap, but “freshman Kat” worked really hard on them and I thought they needed to be seen again. Especially because it is making me even more excited for the motion graphics class this year. I can’t wait till I get better. Click the images to make see them go. 🙂

Above was one of my first projects.

The skeleton walking was in the middle of the course. It still isn’t natural, but I was getting there. 

This was my final project. I did a claymation this was only part of it. It was a ton of work and I’m still proud of it.
