When designing the High House Campaign page, the team asked family and friends what they would want to know from the page. We also looked closely at other wallpaper campaigns such as:
Murielmotion – Animated Wallpaper
Get Anna Hill Wallpaper to Exhibition!
And then looked at other crowdfunding campaigns that appeared on the Indiegogo and Kickstarter recommends banner. Many of these were technology based but had a very large following.
Many of the things these campaigns contained, we had already created including a banner, product photos, video and team information. So we focused on the content and what was written. We also looked closely at Indiegogo’s own guidelines for a successful campaign and drew on my knowledge from my earlier research module.
Indiegogo has a set template where a user inputs the information. This can only be adapted slightly and allows you to insert videos, images and text.
Our first section focused on the High House story and history. We kept the information short so that backers didn’t get bored. We also didn’t want to repeat too much information that was included in the campaign video. We were also able to inset another video that explains the History of High House.
Our next section displayed the India collection as this was the focus and the products being sold, followed by how the campaign would support students. This section was incredibly important to get right as it would explain the key reasons as to why we were doing a crowdfunding campaign.
Our final sections displayed the products available which backers would receive by donating a certain amount. This included our too India Collection Designs at £75 per role. We also asked backers to support us by sharing the campaign.
Our final look was a stylish, professional looking campaign with key information included. We then asked friends and family to review the campaign before launch so that any changes could be made.
Today’s the day of the High House Campaign Launch. The team are incredibly excited. We have put in a lot of work creating content and marketing ourselves through social media channels.
Over the past few weeks we have built up our campaign page.
Throughout the day we have counted down to the launch which has allowed us to gather live interest. We have high hopes for the campaign setting our target amount at £6000.
The campaign has been launched!
We have decided to release content through our social media channels at least three times a day to keep the content current and interest high. Keep an eye out and check out the campaign page: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/high-house-wallpaper-india-collection-design#/

Staffordshire University’s Stafford Campus netball team took part in two charity matches to raise money for the ‘Motor Neurone Disease’ and splitting the money raised with Rugby’s charity ‘RFU injured Players charity’. The matches took place on two separate days. For a special extra the Netball girls had to wear the men’s kit and the guys had to wear the women’s kit including skorts. The treasurer of the Netball team had to collect and submit an funding raised and distribute a check to the charity. This will be received shortly.

19/02/2014 – Present
Following the resignation of the Film Society President the job was passed over to Emma Simms and Simon Picken. This followed a restructure of the whole society committee with Rob Young becoming Chair and Megan Williams is now social secretary. The society has now been split between Stoke and Stafford with Megan Williams being the main correspondent between the two.
“I want to thank you all for your hard efforts over the last year with the Film Society and most of all for supporting myself. I have decided in the interests of the Society to resign as President. This is not a decision I have wanted to make but one I think is best.”
This decision came very unexpectedly and called for a major restructure and assessment of the society itself. A meeting was called with the union to discuss these issues and to look at the Cannes trip. This decision also caused resentment towards the former president who had refused to discuss issues with the rest of the committee. There was a lot of unanswered questions that had to be sorted before further decisions could be made. However relations with Staffs TV were amended immediately and changes continue to be made.

September 4th 2013
Created the introduction to the Netball team on the Union website’s Netball Stafford page.
To advertise the club to other students at the university, showing what the club does, is involved in and what it’s like to be involved.
Staffordshire University, Stafford Campus’s Women’s Netball team is a friendly environment, where Stafford University women can come together to learn a new sport and socialise, making lifelong friends and improving on fitness both on and off the court.
No previous ability is required just the enjoyment of trying new things, though previous experience is welcomed and encouraged.
We train twice a week and entered into the BUCS league with a weekly fixture. Last year we were involved in Stafford Campus’ first Varsity against Wolverhampton which we will continue each year, every year. Whenever possible we also organise a series of friendlies against neighbouring teams.
Our aims for this year is to have a coach for the first time, a win in BUCS league, to improve skill and to enjoy ourselves while keeping fit.
To increase the social aspect we encourage the girls to meet every Wednesday evening for a range of activities including; cinema trips, bowling, nights on the town and a casual get together within our SU (Lounge and Legends). We also organise a tour held at some point in the year.
At the end of the year we wish all girls to have a passion for netball, new friends and new confidence!
