The first years had a brilliant experience at Adam&eveDDB with Creative Director, Simon Lloyd. They had been working on a conceptual brief for Sunsilk set by him two weeks ago. They showed some excellent solutions to Simon, who was totally impressed by the progress made by the students since starting on the course 2 months ago. Well done to you all!
At the workshop organised by senior creative, Eddie Fisher, everyone had the chance to watch each video and receive feedback on where to take it further.
