We also have a student organization called students forWe have decided to incorporate this work into our ICT IE award sharks!project. What we would like to do is to raise money within Island thanksSchool for the HKSF, which we would then donate. We would be making Berthaour own product and a website or blog which will be part of the IEaward. We aim to gain awareness for our project from the island schoolcommunity through this website/blog and to make money off the productwe sell. But in order to do this we will need permission from theHKSF.Please consider our proposal and get back to us,Thank you After we have confirmation with Hong Kong Shark foundation we will go forward and start to plan what technical skills we would like to show to raise shark finning awareness. My partner emailed our desired client. As you can see from the email HKSF wants to work with us. They already have a program for students raising awareness. TheHKSF has accepted our offer to raise awareness, we now have to start our ultimate project within the school. The first is using photoshop to design t-shirts to sell. The T-shirts must include the HKSF sign and must look good enough for younger teens to wear.
RESEARCH – STUDENTS FOR SHARKSThis is the program we will be working with to achieve our goals. We plan to join a school programe that HKSF is going to launch in September, it’s called “Students for Sharks”.We are going to engage students to support the Government introducing enhanced shark conservation measures. A webpage under HKFS website will go live in which students acquire the background information, fill in their details and customize the letter template HKSF drafted. They can then send the letter to the designated District Councillor by one click. The sent records will be stored in our http://www.sfs.hksharkfoundation.org system and they will be used for further government the link for the student for shark website. It is easily This is lobbying actions. accessible form their website and you can sign up straight away. This is the program we will be working with as i am a student and this would be the better option to helping promote shark awareness for students around the school.
ELEMENTS OF A SUCCESSFUL PROMOTIONAL CAMPAIGNPromotional Promotional elements Strategies forCampaign successHong Kong shark Flash mobs Celebrity endorsementfunning Awareness Website Instantly recognizable Protests Moral obligation to Campaigns support charity logo (HKSF) Making it look like funThese are just a few promotinal ideas that the HLSF have alreadyused to promote their campaign. We plan to have a stall outside ofschool to sell our t-shirts. (preferably somewhere busy) we canadvertise our stall buy asking the HKSF to advertice it on theirwebsite and also either hand out flyers and create a facebook page.This is the link of the flashmob HKSF did to promote shark finawarenes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYMnnh6GnDk
RESEARCH - TSHIRTSSince i will be designing my own t shirt to sell, i will have to look at products that are already being sold. this way i can find a unique selling pointwithin my design. this will also mean that my tshirt will be different towards any others being sold. HKSF already have a specific design: As you can see from this snapshot. On the Hong Kong shark foundation website they sell the same t-shirt for men, women and children. the men and women designs are the same but the childrens one is in a orange colour. From looking at this i can now make a decision of making a more visually appealing shirt at a cheaper price.
RESEARCH - TSHIRTSWhat I have learnt form this mood board is that most of the shark awareness shorts out there are very similar. Most of them include funny puns, either cute or scary images of sharks and also lack colour.After researching I have come to a conclusion that my shirt will:1 – have more then one basic shirt colour2 – promote the “cute” side of sharks rather then the scary3 – have a fact about shark finning on it4 –make the shirt memorable either by having a funny pun or picture.Some inspiration from the shirts from the mood boards:
SURVEYBecause of our survey results the public is now our key audience, and customers for our t-shirt. We plan to ask random people in the streets of all ages what they think of selling shark shirts for the HKSF. (cost about $30) I will design a number of design which the public will then decide which one is their favorite. Once we count up our result we can then decide which design to use, where we are going to sell our product and how we are going to advertce our event.Questions we will ask1- How old are you?2- Are you aware of the HKSF?3- Which is your preferred design?4- Would you purchase a t-shirt when the proceeds go toward the HKSF charity?5- Would you donate money?(DESIGNS CAN BE SEEN IN THE ORGINALITY AND CREATIVITY SECTION)

SURVEY ANALYSISFrom our survey we realized only a few people knew who the HKSF were and what they were trying to do. We also realized that most people preferred design 2. We can now progress further into designing the final t-shirt on Photoshop and how we can advertise. From the survey we also found out that not many people know about the HKSF.The next stage is to1 – design the final t shirt2 - raise awareness through media (posters, video, leaflets)3 – contact the client with our final idea
T-SHIRT PRINTING COMPANIESThese are the two most popular T-shirt printing companies in hong kong.Buddy http://www.buddy-ch.com/- Over 10 years of service- Range of shirt colours and designs- Slightly more expensive- Have to order in big quantities- Worked with many famous brand (adidas, panasonic, nokia, xbox, cocacola)T-Shirt Man http://tshirtmanhk.com/aboutus.html- Can prodce a smaller number of shirts- Lower price- Less designsIn conclusion I think we will be working with Buddy. Although it is not the cheapest It hasthe main shirt structure that we require which is very important. If the shirt doesnt’t lookgood then people wont buy it.
