The ideas have been dreamed up, the work has been displayed, the sucking up to creative leaders has been done, the leftover nibbles have presumably been wrapped up in napkins and taken home, and another bunch of advertising students have learned a few tricks to help them into gainful employment. Here are some of the highlights from AUT and Media Design School.
In what has become an annual tradition, the students at Media Design School have developed a quirky campaign to encourage the nation’s ad folk to attend their end-of-year show. In the latest iteration, a series of cut-out headshots of the nation’s admen are accompanied with some humorous sound effects.
Marsden Inch have chucked a generous sum behind the bar so there are drinks, there are nibbles, there are students, and there are portfolios. All that’s required to complete the equation are lots of creatives to wander along between 5.30 and 8pm tonight to The Nathan Club on the ground floor of the Nathan Building at 51 Galway Street, Britomart. There’s also been a suggestion to bring along a few more of the shit idea bins to the show. So to encourage everyone to be at their biting and incisive best, MDS will have a special limited run of 20 shit idea bins on offer.
