Week 10 – Only Solutions

Posted by BMadmin on Monday Nov 5, 2007 Under Uncategorized


I just got the first rough sketches from my artist friend Kent Burles! I am really excited to see my project visualized like this! I can’t wait to see where it goes! Remember these are just the first rough sketches.

If illustrations were a drug, Kent would totally be my pusher!

Also I got a message this evening from Ed Hutchinson, who is the Director of Sales, New Business Development for Sony Ericsson Canada!!! I am going to get in contact with him tomorrow to further discuss some assistance with some project materials!


I got this illustration in from Kent today!

I also phoned Ed Hutchinson this morning and spoke with him briefly about my project. I told him what I needed in regards to phones and stuff and asked a few questions about what style of phone is easiest to disassemble. He said he would look into it for me and give me a call back. So hopefully he can come up with some positive results.


I did my interview with James Fung today, I think it went really well! I got some good information and he is going to take a look through the project and give me more feedback. I typed up my notes from both interviews so you can read them here

I also sent my feedback to Kent the illustrator and it looks like I should be getting some sort illustrations shortly, I can’t wait!


I got another pair of sketches from Kent today!

I also got word back from Ed today, he is going to send me a couple of phones to work with! This is great news, I am really glad I contacted Sony-Ericsson. They asked me to confirm that Sony Ericsson is not liable for any direct or indirect damages caused by ‘misuse’ of this product. I have no problem with that at all, I’m just grateful they were willing to give me some phones to play with 🙂


To cap off the week I talked to Josh at Cool Neon and got a quote for my order, so I will be ordering that this week probably. I also took some time to edit my Proposal a bit and include a project budget.

Overall I am really pleased with how this week has gone and I am really looking forward to getting into the experimenting/prototyping stage of the project!
