CCNY's BIC foundational Idea Development course, taught by Gerardo Blumenkrantz, challenged students to learn the basics of idea generation, how to recognize “big ideas,” and how to critique them in order to keep the message on strategy and make the work better.
For the final project, we had the opportunity to develop a multi-media integrated marketing campaign (including a "creative curveball") for NYC’s bike sharing program, CitiBike. As a class, we brainstormed and agreed on one mutual creative brief to work from. Once finalized, each team then worked independently on their creative solution to the communications objective.
The final product was a 15-minute presentation detailing our multi-media campaign, including print, radio, digital and guerrilla marketing, along with foam board prints of the ads.
As team leader, I managed the production (visual design and formatting) and writing/editing of the final PPT presentation, and the development and curation of the digital strategy (the digital hub/#SOSCitiBike).
