How Jeffdeville started their other graphic design journey

Company name

WishGenie.com

Overview

We’ve all been there. Your friend’s birthday is coming up and you don’t have a clue what to get him/her.

You think back to hints they might have dropped. You might even call other friends and their family members for ideas. Before you know it, the day is approaching and you’re STILL empty-handed.

What do you do?

Imagine if you could close your eyes, instantly determine the right gift for them and have it appear in front you.

Okay, that’s not *EXACTLY* what WishGenies does but it comes darn close. Users log onto Facebook, select the friend they’re shopping for and WishGenies gets to work by matching people with similar profiles to recommend ideas. In essence, we use crowdsourcing to allow gift givers to get over the obstacles of determining the right gift idea.

Furthermore, users can even purchase the gift right within the application, eliminating the hassle of then searching for the product online.

This helps users in a number of ways:
1. Less time-consuming to find gift ideas
2. It provides unbiased recommendations based on people that are similar to their friends
3. The suggestions are more relevant
4. Friends/family members will receive gifts they’re more likely to appreciate

WishGenies is great for people who don’t have time to find a gift or for people who do not share similar interests.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

WishGenies is a Facebook app and thus we are targeting Facebook users. Bear in mind that Facebook users are no longer just kids. The average age I believe is now in their 30's, but your work will need to try to appeal to a wide audience.

Next scene (One month later):
It's now Jeff's birthday. Kelly hands him his gift. It's a collection of DVDs that include full seasons of Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty & Gossip Girl. While smiling sweetly, she says "We can put the present you gave me to good use by watching my favorite shows together."

The next screen pans to Jeff's unhappy face and ends with two arrows intertwined with the caption "And the cycle continues."

The next scene will outline our solution. Show 3 step process (creativity with graphics is open to interpretation):

Step 1) Log into Facebook, select your friend and pick your budget
Step 2) WishGenies pull her/his interests, scours Facebook for people with similar tastes and allows them to provide you with gift ideas
Step 3) A list of recommendations are provided with the option to make the purchase for the best gift instantly.

We'll need an EPS and high-resolution JPEG of the image. We'll be using it on our blog and linking it to our site and other accounts. We plan on actively providing feedback to ensure proper direction.

Requirements

*If you can't turn this around by 4pm EST tomorrow (1/30/2011) please do not apply*

We are looking for a creative designer to help us put together a funny comic that shows a graphical summary of how WishGenies works.

Think of the same type of quality as TheOatmeal.com when you're putting this together (E.g. http://theoatmeal.com/comics/apple with less buggy-eyed characters).

Please start by taking 2 minutes to try the app yourself at http://www.wishgenies.com.

Here is storyboard. We're thinking it will be two columns. Creativity is encouraged!

First scene: It's Kelly's birthday and her boyfriend Jeff is giving her a present. It's a big box and she's excited to open it.

She unwraps the present and sees it's a big screen TV. Instantly, she becomes angry and an image of him watching Sunday night football pops to her mind.

However, a lightbulb goes off in her head as she has the perfect revenge plan.
