Project Ideas Fair Logistics
At the project ideas fair you will meet clients for a number of potential projects. The fair will run from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM (with the exception of one presentation at 8:00 PM). Please do not be late.
You are assigned to two sessions. Please remember that you will need to take notes so that you can report to your team during lab (see the lab instructions). It would be useful to record your notes on your team's wiki. If you cannot attend, please check with your teammates so that you are sure that at least one person from your team will be attending your sessions. The section and team mailing lists are available for use if you need to coordinate with teammates.
Some clients may have specific design problems in mind, while others will discuss broader issues. Please remember that, as a designer, it is your responsibility to interpret information carefully so that you can develop the most need-appropriate and successful product possible. Specific implementation ideas from the client may, or may not, be sound, so don't look for the client to provide the solution. In talking to clients you will probably even be able to identify opportunities that they have not explicitly identified.
An additional potential client, The North Face will present via video conference at 8 PM. Team members have not been assigned to this special session, but please coordinate so that 2 members of your team section attend (4 members of the entire team). You can use the team mailing lists to coordinate.
