BA(Hons) Creative Advertising and MA students met alumni and learned how they have gone on to successfully carve out careers within the industry.
This year featured two speakers on the panel, Steve Atkinson and Kieran Child, a creative team at Table 19, who had only just graduated from the BA (Hons) Advertising course in 2013. Such a quick transition from audience member to panellist speaks volumes about the reputation of our Advertising Courses and how the talent of Falmouth graduates is recognised from across the industry.
Also speaking were Ric Hooley and Vix Jagger, creative team at BBH, who studied MA Creative Advertising – responsible for the You Are Football Barclays Premier League ad campaign that has been so successful.
Rachel Holding and Daniel Leppanen are MA Creative Advertising alumni who are part of the creative team at leading London agency Kamarama. Also speaking was Martin Murphy is a Talent Strategist at The Talent Agency – a global head hunting firm which advises the advertising industry on young talent.
Hearing from people who once sat in their seats but are now working for some of the world’s leading advertising agencies, such as BBH and Karmarama, is an incredibly useful experience for current students.
