After the success at Bournemouth University’s BUnique event the new Advertising Society (ADSOC) is successfully up and running with many exciting and interesting goals for the year.
One of the most exciting briefs the ADSOC is expecting to tackle this year is set by successful Dragons’ Den entrepreneurs ‘Love Da Pop Corn’. Co-founder and ex-BU student, Christian Hartmann, has set ADSOC members the task of helping to expand their business over the Dorset area.
Other goals include helping the different BU clubs and societies to advertise themselves and their events. The Alternative Performance Society was the first to have their Christmas showcase advertised by ADSOC. Inspiration comes from all members of the Society as all students are welcome.
The society aims to give students a chance to be a part of the creative and technological side of advertising and marketing within a realistic environment. Suzy Slaughter, treasure of the society, explains: “By working on live briefs and enabling students to gain valuable experience through building a portfolio and working with real clients. We also have the safety net of lecturers and more experienced students to give us a more professional and respectable output.”
he members of the new society have already planned their first social trip to the Brand Museum in London on the 25th of January. This fun and educational excursion will help give students some perspective on how important branding has been and still is.
