SEPTEMBER 22, 2020: CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR STUDENT, PRAKESH TULI, FROM THE SCHOOL OF DESIGN, WHO WORKED ON DESIGNING AN APPLICATION CONCEIVED AS A CONSOLIDATED ONE STOP OTT SOLUTION THAT ALLOWS VIEWERS TO STREAM ORIGINAL, REGIONAL AND EXCLUSIVE CONTENT, SPREAD ACROSS VARIOUS PLATFORMS

As an avid watcher of OTT content, Prakash assessed that although the advent of streaming platforms have given users myriad advantages over conventional TV, the OTT platforms come with their own set of pain points. In turning a hunch into a full-fledged UI/UX design brief, he attempted to create a user-friendly consolidated solution that would discourage the often encountered ‘app hopping’ and override subscriptions as well. He designed the application and gave it a contemporary name ‘Oodles’, while, in terms of function, allowing the audience to discover and reimagine movies in their own capacity, rather than with the help of AI.

We are proud of our student for applying his insights in meeting the user experience challenges faced by large numbers of streaming content consumers in India, and abroad.

Based on any product of student’s choice, they had to develop an Ad-campaign of three advertisements for a magazine. This project helped them go through the same process an Ad agency would go in developing a campaign, right from the strategy to photography, copywriting and layout composition. Going through the process step-by-step, they came up with their own campaigns for brands they like.

They also worked on the films of their choice and took the dominant colour from the film and made an art film poster. The only constraint was to stick to only one colour for the whole poster. Based on this, they had to interpret what part of the story they want to tell about the film through posters keeping in mind, that it is the first impression of a film before you get to experience it.
