Jack Kramer visits MA Creative Advertising

Yesterday, we were delighted to welcome another advertising luminary to give a talk to the MA Creative Advertising students. Jack Kramer has been an Art Director and Creative Director for about 25 years – at agencies in London, Cape Town, Hong Kong and, most notably, for 15 years as CD at Bray Leino in Bristol. His entertaining slide presentation of the terrific creative work that he’s been responsible for included a discussion on the creative culture in Bristol and the pros and cons of working at agencies in cities other than London. We’re all really grateful to Jack that he could give his time to come down to talk to the class.
