The TED conference organisers are planning to produce a commemorative publication to celebrate TED’s 30th Anniversary


To produce proposals for a ’conference publication’ that captures the spirit of ‘The One Hundred best lectures’ (transcripts of the lectures, additional content from non-attending contributors, biographies, quotes, etc.). Consider your role as ‘editor’ and play it safe making sure the publication  functions typographically.

Bright Energy


A new product has been discovered that is both unique and revolutionary; one that will generate a completely new market and is yet to be introduced to the general public.You are charged with the task of devising a strategy that will identify the potential customer and bring this new product or invention to the appropriate markets.The product will need to be branded and given a professional identity. If applicable, it may require packaging design plus a look and feel, along with a language which is fitting for the market opportunity. This will then be promoted with an appropriate choice of media.

Vampire Energy’ – A product which prevents electricity from being consumed when appliances are not being used.


I began my idea generation by focusing on three possible routes that all concentrated on different approaches, which I could then develop my ‘Vampire Energy’ product around. The three umbrellas were;

Key words; green, efficient, thoughtful, peaceful and user-friendly
Target audience; possibly home-owners,people who enjoy protecting the planet, mature
and aware.

Key words; technology, power, money and accessible
Target audience; gadget geeks, men and businessmen

Key words; profitable, saving, mature, practical and intellectual
Target audience; Families, home-owner’s, parents, older generations
