Visiting Professor Rory Sutherland Lecture – Thu 21st Apr, 5:30pm Lecture Theatre 1 Woodlane Campus

We are delighted to welcome back Rory Sutherland, Vice-Chairman of Ogilvy & Mather UK, and past President (2010) of the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (IPA). He holds an Honorary Doctorate (D. Litt) at Brunel University, is a Visiting Professor at Warwick Business School, and is author of The Wikki Man (2011), as well as countless journal articles and blog posts.

Born in Usk, Monmouthshire in 1965, Rory read Classics at Christ’s College, Cambridge, before joining Ogilvy as a Graduate Trainee in 1988. After 18 months spent as an account handler, Rory became a copywriter in June 1990.

He has since worked on Amex, BT, Compaq, Microsoft, IBM, BUPA, easyJet, Unilever, winning a few awards along the way. He was appointed Creative Director of OgilvyOne in 1997 and ECD in 1998. In 2005 he was appointed Vice Chairman of the Ogilvy & Mather Group in the UK.

“Rory’s media-neutral approach anticipated the digital revolution: his mantra has always been to start by asking, what is the business problem that needs to be solved?”

Rory’s lecture is being held Thursday 21st April at 5:30pm, Lecture Theatre 1, Woodlane Campus.

Digital Media success at D&AD, London

We have won a Best in Show for Elena’s work:






MOW [ma:u] is an app, which was designed to solve a problem of the transience of time.

It reminds you to forget for a moment about all your worries and just have a look around, feel your presence and the atmosphere you’re in.

Random notifications emphasise that every moment is special and unique. A continuous curve of time is like a landscape full of peaks, full of moments.

Guardian Clearing Brief 2015 (Deadline 9am, 2 April)

Every year The Guardian newspaper release a clearing special supplement that sits within the main newspaper. Each year they ask one art school to create that front cover. Last year it was Glasgow School of Art, the year before it was LCC and this year they’ve asked Falmouth.

The key message of the cover is to tell prospective students that although they may not have achieved the grades they wanted there’s no need to panic. Therefore possible copy on the cover might be something along the lines of “It’s not too late”, “Don’t panic” etc. The tone of voice should be upbeat and positive.

Although the cover has traditionally been illustrated, they’ve agreed and are excited by the idea of us opening it out to all disciplines. If the work is figurative in nature please include a gender and racial mix.

If selected your work will be on the front cover and you will receive a £450 fee from The Guardian newspaper. If not selected but shortlisted, your work will appear inside the supplement as part of a double page spread showing the shortlisted entries.
