Hi ya! We are a group of young people developing a web based application, where one will be able to upload images, sounds and videos which make you as an individual feel 'happy'. This blog is to support our thoughts, reasearch and development on this site. Please feel free to add any comments or any of your own thoughts that may help us! Regards The HiSpiwrit Team
Here is the “How To” video for one iteration of our project. Enjoy!
A great blog, promoting happiness, take a look!
I have been looking into linking our posts from facebook to this site, wordpress. However, rss graffiti only allows you to link your own statuses from facebook and not feeds from the group page. I have also looked into tumblr which is a great way off blogging, although there is little time left (with our hand in date on tuesday) to set up another blog on a different site. An unsuccessfull discovery but nevermind!

As agreed, Estella can begin to look at the ‘User journey’. By this we mean depicting the journey (or steps) one must take, or operations which need to be performed in order to utilise our website and create a narrative. This could be depicted through graphics detailing a step-by-step guide or as a video (see http://pilothandwriting.com/en/ for a beautifully executed example – thanks Estella).
If Amy could work with Estella on this, no doubt you two are going to come up with some wonderful ideas. This will hopefully be the catalyst to answering other hurdles which we may be faced with, i.e. site functionality.
Looking forward to seeing all data Jane and Makeni have gathered. Right now it is ANY video and ANY audio, within reason of course and what you believe will be appropriate. Everyone feel free to bring along sounds and sights you may have captured. Sam loving’ your work! By next Tuesday we should have enough material to produce a basic narrative.
Please share your ideas. The more the merrier.
(Apologies for the multiple posts!)
Can everyone have a look at http://www.yhchang.com/. It’s a synchronised text-based animation, possibly produced in Flash, but is highly engaging.
Twas a productive meeting this afternoon despite only 3 of us present, but hoping everyone is safe, well and still laden with enthusiam.
Nick presented some of his handomse graphics for a possible logo. Nick will continue to work with some of the ideas discussed today and present the group with a mood board next Tuesday. Fundamentally, ideas of symbolism, video, sound or storytelling could be portrayed through our logo. Check out Charlottes website http://www.phd2published.com/ for a lovely exmple of logo design, web layout and use of font & colour which is aimed at a specific audience. Thoughts and feelings anyone?
