The students of MA Advertising visited local ad agency Bright Blue Day.
Managing Director Jonathan Clark and Bright Blue Day are longstanding supporters of BU — and have previously provided rewarding placements for the students of both the BA and MA advertising programmes.
“This was really a good look at an actual advertising agency. The well-articulated office environment and the particular working style are perfectly blended together. We had great fun chatting with Jonathan, the founder of the agency. Anthony showed a great deal of insider’s achievements along with some career tips which were very impressive. Ben, the Creative Director, was amazingly and demonstrated the art of dealing with clients. They are all simply brilliant.”
Tutor and Principal Fellow Dr Richard Scullion explained that “This was an ideal way to help them link practice and theory and to get a ‘feel’ for agency life too. It is an important aspect of the programme that has such good working relations with many local ad agencies.”
The students of the 2017-18 cohort of MA Advertising programme (L-R: Olivia Pepper, Amy Rivers, Aaliyah Binnie-Martins, Marie Neoralova, Ya-Hsiu Chang, Lianhua Li and Harshwardhan Munje) were welcomed to a visit to local Bournemouth advertising agency Bright Blue Day by Managing Director Jonathan Clark (3rd from left).
