Team Up For Portfolio Work

A team experience where students come together to develop work from start to finish. Interactive, social media and digital strategy will be a part of this teams class where you will work on fully integrated campaigns for your portfolio.

This class is for: Art Directors, Copywriters, Designers and Digital Strategists.

Social Good

This course will focus on a client that provides "social good". Your portfolio should showcase product and service clients from different sectors. This client will be selected from the non-profit or cause sector. In this course you will be working on a project that can be used by the client.

Some of the world's best work focuses on social good.

When completed, your work can be entered into competitions - and if produced by the client, can be submitted as "industry work".
