We caught up with BA (Hons) Creative Advertising student Jake Scott to find out what how things are going so far…
I’ve really enjoyed my time so far at Leeds Arts University. I chose the Creative Advertising course because the emphasis on creativity rather than business really appealed to me, and it has certainly delivered that.
The tutors teach us in ways that help us to not only learn what makes a good advert, but also the skills we need within an agency, for example, we learn the importance of presenting work. The three studios are cool, laid back places to work and feels almost like a real agency.
I’d recommend this course to the creatives out there; it’s for the people who want to make adverts that stand out from the crowd and challenge what’s been done before. Since I started this course; I’ve not only learnt about advertising, but also gained confidence and belief in my ideas. Don’t get me wrong, it’s challenging and hard work but it brings the best out of a creative mind.
