Office Hours with Jared
Had a very informational and helpful skype session with Jared this morning... Once we figured out the time change! We learned how to effectively develop our pitch that focuses around the problem, our unique solution and validation. It was great to hear his feedback, and we jumped to work on filming first thing this afternoon! After many laughs, numerous bloopers and a few good takes - we're well underway to finishing out final pitch video! Thanks TFF and Jared for all your assistance so far!
The mockups and wireframes are done and our prototype is ready to share with the world! Here's a sneak peak video of what the finished website and mobile app will look like! To say in-the-loop, sign up to be one of the first GreenBag users at www.mygreenbag.co!
Plan for Iteration - Timeline!
After months of brainstorming, talking with folks at Iowa State University and watching countless Thought For Food videos... we've got a website and a plan for iterating our GreenBag project! Thanks to everyone for you continued assistance and support! Check out www.mygreenbag.co & sign-up to stay posted on our progress!
As we went to work on our final application, the grammar wars began... also - we had some fun, interesting and completely off-the-walls brainstorming ideas for our GreenBag tagline... I hope you enjoy the list of rejected taglines :)
- Greenbag has the goods.
- The gooduns.
- The green goods.
- Get the goods. Get GreenBag.
- The good goods. Get GreenBag.
- Don’t gag, get GreenBag.
- The super good goods!
- Tag that bag!
- Don’t lag, grab that bag!
