Creative Advertising Summer Shows 2017

Masie Marshall_IMAGE.46.jpgThere was a very broad mix of work showing in the Creative Advertising Summer Show reflecting the highly diverse media environment today’s advertising creatives inhabit.

Work exhibited included films and TV commercials, radio commercials, print campaigns, websites, digital advertising, social media campaigns, experiential and events, new product concepts, brand work and packaging.

To be a top advertising creative today you certainly have to be versatile.


D&Ad news

BA (Hons) Creative Advertising are delighted to announce that final year student George Grant has won a well deserved D&Ad New Blood award for his excellent work for The National Autistic Society. This should prove to be a great start to George’s career and we’ll be proudly adding a copy of his award certificate to our course’s ever growing D&Ad Wall of Fame. Click here to see George’s work.


Future Creative Stars

Congratulations to advertising students Arif Abdillah and Roan Laenen who has been short-listed for a ‘Future Lions’ award. This is a tremendous achievement as they were in competition with students from all over the world. Fingers crossed they win it, they’ll be in huge demand if they do.

Student Work Placements

Some of our final year advertising students are starting their careers and they haven’t even graduated yet. Chelsea Thorley and Hannah Fortune have secured a placement at St Lukes and Raquel Frietas Tomé and Charlotte Benbow have secured a placement at Ogilvy and Mather. Well done to both teams. There are other student placements in the pipeline – watch this space.

The National Student Survey has just been launched for 2017. The course will be hoping to continue its enviable record of 100% overall student satisfaction over the past two years. In the 2016 survey the students recorded 100% satisfaction in relation to the quality of teaching.

In the Autumn term the course continued to deliver great opportunities for its students, with briefings, workshops and talks from the following professionals who delivered their insights into the advertising industry and provided placement opportunities to the next generation.

Ex Falmouth Graduates, Will Moir & Elliot Bates, now a creative team at The Hub, London, set a live project for students. The winning work guarantees a work placement at The Hub.

London Agency Visits

In November, MA Creative Advertising students visited several agencies in London for an insight into the advertising industry and to meet and hear from Falmouth University Alumni about how to end  up working in advertising. We went to two agencies a day – some big, some small, some kind of mid-sized. All interesting.
