The process It is simple. You write a brief that matches both your business challenge AND the program’s learning goals. You are then the students’ client. They work on your brief, in collaboration with you, and present a possible solution (or solutions) at the end of the process. Overall, it looks something like this:

1) Contact us
2) Sign up to be a partner
3) Write a brief (together with Hyper Island)
4) Work with the students: Initial meeting, work, presentation
5) Evaluation and closure of the collaboration

Facts: Project start & end: 10th September 2014 - 10th October 2014 (5 weeks)
Size of groups: 5-6 students

What you can expect as a client
• A documented need analysis of your product, service or brand.
• A packaged strategic vision for the development of your brand.

What should be in the brief? The briefs for this project should focus on a need to develop a digital brand strategy for a new product or service or the rebranding of an existing product or service that needs to re-define it-self for the digital channels.

• The product or service does not need to be digital at its core, however the product or service chosen should have multi-channel footprint, with the digital channels playing a central role.
• The students are expected to perform research and analysis of the client’s business and market needs. Define and package a strategic vision together with communication framework for the brand’s digital presence.

The project focuses on gaining insights, designing according to business goals and needs, and how to package a strategic delivery.
