True Giving

The Thai telecommunications conglomerate True is getting rave reviews worldwide for its latest spot, "Giving," which tells the story of a man unexpectedly rewarded for a lifetime of good deeds he performed without expecting anything in return.  TrueMove too says it "believes in the power of giving without expecting a return."  Which would probably be more meaningful if they were to, say, give away their services and devices for free. Which they are not.  But what the company lacks in commitment to its own philosophy, it more than makes up for in inspirational advertising.

Anothere example of using great storytelling.

Today, we will working on our bio's for our project proposals.

You can start class today with a New Design Mediastorm original film from the Class of 2010.  The film, Adapt and Overcome, is a portrait of graffiti writer SKUF. I wanted to show it to you today to get you in the mood to be able to talk about yourself as an artist and designers.   Today, we will be writing your professional biographies for your blog site.  Designers, artists, filmmakers and photographers often keep their professional work on-line.  We will be documenting all of your work this year in your blog and your blogs will be very important to your grade.  

You can see some examples of professional sites below:
Here is the website from the design firm Crush Lovely:  Crush Lovely Web Site
Professional Portfolio of some dude named Jason:  Jason Aderholt Portfolio

You can also check out Scott's bio as an example on the top of this blog. 

Professional portfolio's always include a professional biography. You will be writing your own today to be included as part of your class blog. We will revise these several times before we put them on-line. You are writing about yourself as a professional so make it high quality.
