Describe the challenges and key objectives
With 42 speakers talking over just three days, we were met with the challenge of keeping the introductions entertaining, yet consistently in line with our single concept, the ‘Creative Playing Field’.
Describe the brief from the client
Design Indaba is an annual international design conference and expo that aims to push creative industries to new heights. Design gurus from all over the world gather at the event. Tasked to develop this year’s concept, we were inspired by the World Cup and the idea that, like sports, creativity deserves its due. Design Indaba 2010 welcomed delegates to the ‘Creative Playing Field’. Conference speakers became the international touring team and a nationwide search was launched for a local national creative team. In keeping with this concept we needed to create speaker introductory AVs.
Describe how you arrived at the final design
Capturing big game emotion and festivity, the introductions took on the appearance of football card stunts. The speakers’ nationality, countries’ flag and full name wiped on to the accompaniment of stadium sound effects. Incredibly detailed, each introduction was animated realistically, allowing for human error to creep in, with an upside down or skew card here and there.
Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Social media, blogs and websites around the world praised the conference and intros alike, with the intros receiving mention on noted websites such as Cool hunting, Design Week, Business Week, and Mail & Guardian among others.
The Design & Branding titled DESIGN INDABA SPEAKER INTROS was done by The Jupiter Drawing Room South Africa advertising agency for product: DESIGN INDABA 13 (brand: Interactive Africa) in South Africa. It was released in the Feb 2010.
