Show Us How You Solve Problems

Our graduates gain employment after study because they are great problem solvers.
Problems like: “what logo will create the best brand awareness?”, “what lighting will create the right mood in a scene,” “what shape will create a funny but pathetic monster the client wants?”, “what timing should be used to convey the emotion across?”, “how will virtual reality change this concept?”, or even, “what will be the best platform to build this app on?” While you are at AIT, we will teach you these creative techniques and skills. We are looking to award scholarships to those already displaying a passion and focus. The task below is primarily designed to test your creative and problem-solving skills.


Timesplice (Scholarship Brief)

Timesplice is a company that designs products for the inter-dimensional travel market. Its customers move throughout the multiverse for work, completing projects for high-paying clients. Next summer, Timesplice aims to launch a new wearable device, which will allow its users to travel through time and space, but which is also stylish and discrete. However, the company cannot decide whether this device should be worn on the head, wrist, or neck.

Your task is to select the type of device you think is most appropriate and design a concept to promote your idea. Your device concept must be able to be worn on either:

  • The head
  • The wrist
  • The neck

To be accepted, Timesplice requires you to submit three items:

  1. Design Document, which discusses your preliminary ideas and the process you used to finalise your concept. Your design document could be 1-5 pages but must consist of drafts, sketches, images, notes, or themes. It should be clearly titled and have a brief summary explaining each section.

  2. Final Concept. This may be a drawing, animation, video, or report displaying the final concept. Animations and videos should be no longer than 2 minutes.

  3. Concept Summary. This should summarise the final design, its functions, and why you chose it in 300 words.
What Are We Looking For?
For this project, we would like to see your ability to:

  • Conceive, plan and design concepts
  • Determine which concepts will or will not be kept
  • Develop, communicate and own your final design considerations

How Will Scholarship Submissions Be Judged?
Submissions will be evaluated based on the following:

  • Was the brief followed and were all required items submitted?
  • Is there evidence of planning, ideation, drafts, or rough concepts?
  • How well are the functions, features, and final concepts explained?
  • How much technical skill is demonstrated in the final concept?*
