After getting a new brief this week based around designing a graphic response aimed at next year's first years, I identified a few problems which I could resolve, some of which were;

'Finding you way to college'

'Getting to know people from the course'

'managing heavy workloads'

'Preparation and Attitude'

'Being nervous on your first day'

Out of those I decided that my problem should be 'Being nervous on your first day'. My reason for choosing this was down to my personal experience. I found it incredibly hard to talk to people because of a lack of confidence and not knowing anyone, which was also the same for the majority of others. After coming in on day one, I was told to go to the canteen and when I went in there, there was loads of people sitting on the tables. I realised quickly that there was no way of knowing who was on my course to begin with, so I tried to mingle the best I could. I never did find anyone on the course so doubts started to run through my mind, like was I in the right room, had the course team already collected the students. It was a difficult 10 minutes.

With that in mind I want to create a product which will calm peoples nerves and also allow them to identify who is on the course with them. It will be both an ice breaker and also a talking point. The products packaging will be both informative but also entertaining, and I do have a few ideas to begin with.

Just to clarify;

What is the problem?
How to conquer nerves on your first day
