It was hard for me to come up with a great conceptual idea for what to do for my project. I always have a tendency to come up with too many ideas and then I give myself an impossible amount of work to do. I received advice from Miles, our teacher, and decided that I would come up with a small idea and work from there. Package design is what I am going to focus on this term for our class. I am going to come up with three different designs for three different products. I want to narrow down my ideas so that I am able to successfully finish what I need to do for the class and come out with something that will help me build a portfolio after I am done with school.

Product Name once the product is formed
How to market a product to a mass group of consumers.
How does an advertising company sell a product to a group of consumers and convince the group that they want to buy what the company is selling? I am going to try and come up with different types of ways to launch and sell a product. I will have to learn what makes a customer want to buy.
How to market a product to a mass group of customers is going to be the goal for this project. I want to figure out what drives a person to buy something that they ultimately may or may not need. I need to learn what makes a consumer tick, after I figure that out I will have unlocked the key as to how to sell that person anything.
My plan is to come up with a product. After I come up with the idea for what the product might be I want to be able to sell that product to any person and be able to convince them that they need it or just have to have it. I will do this by creating advertisements through commercial ways. Using the recourses that I have at my disposal I will create ad campaigns like billboard ads, logo ideas and package design.
My goal by the end of the class is to be able to show that I have come up with a great product and I am able to come up with advertising techniques that will make consumers want to buy.
The main research that I will be doing is interviewing consumers, graphic designers, and other people in the field to gain better knowledge of what makes people want to purchase a certain product. I will also be looking online and finding books to help understand what the difference is between a good advertisement and a bad advertisement is. These things will help me gain the knowledge I need to really make a captivating Ad campaign.
