The goal of Brand Lab is to take the hackathon concept and apply it directly to businesses in our community. We want to connect real brands with local creatives. Our first test project is for Screenland Theatres. Screenland will be releasing a new gourmet popcorn in KC later this year. Think Topsy's or Garrett's out of Chicago if you're familiar. They want to sell their new gourmet popcorn during the holiday season and also target corporate gift-giving. They want everything, from their logo to the packaging, to be completely unique and to be the result of local creatives. Basically, we're inviting designers, developers, etc. to compete for cash prizes in a 24 hour hackathon on Saturday, 2/23. More info at brandlabkc.com
. We're also on Twitter: http://twitter.com/scrnlandpopcorn
Some questions that have come up are who will own the end product? For those who win a cash prize in the design category (i.e. for logo, packaging, etc.), the design would be the property of Screenland in terms of the right to use. For those who win a cash prize for developing a website, app, etc., it would be shared code. In other words, Screenland would want the right to use the code, but they have no problem with the developer reselling or reusing the code in another way for a different client. Any subsequent work needed would be the result of a separate financial or other arrangement worked out by Screenland and the designer/developer.
We have Butch Rigby (owner of Screenland), Ramsey Mohsen (director of social for Digital Evolution Group), and Dee Sadler (KC Design Core) as judges. Mentors will also be available to help with coding or design. Attendees will be fed (breakfast, lunch, dinner, milk & cookies) on Saturday, and we're also taking a movie break in the evening.
Please feel free to share info about the event with anyone you'd like.
