APPOSING | 10.00 – 11.00
App Design Masterclass

To book your place email us here

How does an app get designed? At Apposing, we develop ideas rather than churn out standard apps in order to produce useful and impactful apps that suit the unique needs of each client. As important as any other stage in this is the designing of the app. We need to ensure that the functionality of the app is easy to understand, it is simple and fun to use and that it looks attractive. In this hour long session, Apposing’s design specialists will guide you through this design process for apps.

The session will cover how to produce your idea, map out the sections of the app and develop a wireframe. We will then outline how the process fits into the overall project plan for developing apps, including how designs are presented to, and discussed with, clients.

We will provide all required materials (pencils, paper etc) but you are welcome to bring laptops along if you wish to take your ideas further or seek guidance on specialist software from our experts.

The session will last approximately an hour and is limited to a maximum of 30 people. Book now to avoid disappointment!

UNIFORM | 13.00 – 14.00
Physical Apps Masterclass

An introductory session to Physical Apps. In this whistle stop 1 hour session we’ll tell you about the internet of things, show you some inspirational projects, and you’ll get your hands dirty with a practical intro to arduino. 

By the end of the session you will have learnt how to make stuff move, flash and play with physical inputs. And we’ll point you in the right direction to take your skills to the next level!

We will supply the arduino stuff but at least 15 people will need to bring along a laptop with a little bit of prep required… please indicate if you can bring a laptop with you on the day when registering.

The session will last approximately an hour and is limited to a maximum of 30 people. Book now to avoid disappointment!

MILKY TEA | 15.15 – 16.15
The power of brand characters. Designing memorable mascots

To book your place email us here

Have you ever seen a character and instantly associated it with a brand?
 
People quite often remember brand characters or mascots more than a logo or a font. This master class will look at how brands over the years have used mascots to influence brand recognition; providing insight into how Milky Tea Studios design and craft memorable characters for a brand or game. 
 
We’ll be sharing our top tips and the do’s and don’ts of using characters as a champion of your brand! Our masterclass will also provide unique insights into creating intellectual property through character development, which can be used to communicate and engage people on different platforms. The session will be engaging and invite people to participate in an informal workshop atmosphere.
