Get Down On It – Meeting Notes

These are the minutes of our meeting. We will be rotating this task weekly between everyone; this week, it’s Jess’s turn.

First point of call:

Research Trips Timeline:

  • Torquay – Torre abbey and Kents Caverns/ Dartmoor National park – do over two days as this allows us to see as much as possible as well as being safe in terms of driving (long trip)
  • Cheddar Gorge – may not be necessary, depends on what resources we can get from the Kent Caverns.
  • Bodiam Castle
  • Treadwell’s Book Store
  • Winchester Bookstore/Cathedral/Town
  • The Old Apothecary

Torquay takes 2 days – 15th/16th –  in process of booking an Airbnb. Aiming to be somewhere near the attractions. (Dungeons/Gardens)

TBC Cheddar Gorge – depends how the Caverns go. (Dungeons)

London – Thursday for trip with course – use trip to go to Treadwell’s bookstore at the same time for primary research. (Shop/Library References)

This week – go to the bookstore and walk around high street/cathedral for pictures and references. (Map/World/Library).

Lyndhurst trip Wednesday (Shop/Apothecary)

Roles – James coding and prototyping
– Millie build and art/design
– Jess art and design


Visual Identity:
* Millie will be in charge of Marketing/branding (visual identity)
* Tycoon and adventure – 2 words going for the main identity from Derek’s workshop
* Colour scheme is good – purples = twilight and dream like

* GDD – like the old style Nintendo game manual – simplicity that focuses on our work inside.
* Motion graphics – starting to learn – can help make trailer later on –  storyboard  
Key Notes:

  • Record meetings/sessions as videos/sound bites to put into blog – easier to get all information documented + minutes
  • Print calendar – a3 black and white – pencil in rough tasks and deadlines
