Information for students: For this assignment you will be working in small groups. This formative assignment will also count towards:

–       Unit Demonstrating Speaking and Listening. See unit assessment criteria bellow.

Project Brief: Unilever, one of the biggest corporations in the world, has approached you to help them come up with an idea for a new snack (Students can be as creative as they want regarding their new snack, but it must be edible!). They also want you to come up with advertising ideas for the product; your advert must be in line with your target audience. You will have to present both your product and advertising ideas to 3 representatives of Uniliver.  Remember although you are presenting your ideas; you must look and sound professional, and therefore you have present at least a finished product or advert.

Important points to think of:

  • What food product are you creating and selling?
  • Who are you selling your product to? (Target Audience)
  • What advertising strategy(s) will you be using, keeping in mind your Audience?

Above all, you must remember that you want to convince Unilever to buy into your ideas.

Each group will produce:

  1. A product profile, identifying the food product to be sold, the target market and advertising strategies.
  2. Research on the types of products your target audience consumes
  3. Mood boards
  4. Sketches
  5. Final product and packaging designs (using Photoshop)
  6.  A script for their commercial.
  7. The commercial itself.

Remember you will be observed during your group project research development and presentation. Your teacher will observe your ability to work in group and present information
