I honestly don’t know why I even bother with concept sketches. I never follow the designs that I originally intended to create. I suppose I just work better when I’m at the table with a blank slate and my only goal is to create. (No pun intended) However this time around I did have a reason to deviate from the project plan.
I felt that the planned design resembled the graphics too much already on the bebo page. This was intentional in the original planning but later reconsidered. I didn’t want the advertisement to infringe on the copyrights of bebo. As a result I scratched the whole Idea.
All in all I’m quite satisfied with the design. I’m a little worried that it doesn’t exactly portray an image hosting site and more of a teen dating site. I wanted to draw int he audience with the appeal of the model. After all Bebo is a social networking site with a large percentage of female teens. Hopefully the staff at omgupload will still approve of the design.
