Speaker: Loïc Sattler

Location: Paris, France



Case-Study for

(FWA awarded web project)

This web-based project has been built for a Parisian Sound Studio in Paris called Sonacom. I had to redo the online presence of the studio.  The initial brief was to create a simple site where you can only click on a sound and hear what they’ve produced.

Problem: we had to find a solution not to mention the clients, because some where competitors (like Vodafone VS Orange). Within my studio, I came to this creative solution, going in a total different direction of the initial brief.

It mixes the challenge of:

  • letting you entertain with the site
  • letting you discover the world (real & creative) of Sonacom
  • creating within Sonacom’s universe
  • letting you think Sonacom offers a personal work to you, just for you

It has also been built within my own graphical style.

During the conference, I plan to speak about the following:

  1. Me, Loïc Sattler -> Studies, what I like, who I am, 5 minutes
  2. Analysing my Graphical Style, 3/5 minutes
  3. Sonacom : The client, 3 minutes
  4. Sonacoms new site, initial brief & Prizes, 3 minutes
  5. Ideas, envies, first draft, 3 minutes
  6. Final Proposal : Sound Versus Color Versus Graphics, 4 minutes
  7. Presenting the online site, 3 minutes
  8. My Style in Sonacoms site, 3 minutes
  9. Making the site come true – Technologies used, 4 minutes
  10. Putting it online, was everything all right?, 4 minutes
  11. Doing the buzz around the site and pushing it online, 2 minutes
  12. Feedback of the market and the online communities, 3 minutes
