You all have roles, but no one is actively marketing the business You have no business cards And above all no marketable ideas to generate income In one word, Mediactiv is in “chaos” and you all need to step up. You will need to work in small groups and come with solutions and designs to launch the business properly. Group 1: Design an appropriate logo for the business that will go on all marketing materials and business cards. So far I can see 2 different types of logo and this is inappropriate, a business only has one logo. I don’t see Nike or McDonald with 3 types of logo.

Group 3: You need to come up with ideas that will help Mediactiv generate income and market them through promotional flyers, than will be distributed in the college for start. Task 1: Investigate your issue You need...
