So all the 2nd and 3rd years have now been out on placement, causing chaos and hopefully coming up with some great ideas! A big thank you goes out to BBH, Creature, JWT, adam&eveDDB, Kindred, Partners Andrews Aldridge, Jack Morton, Brothers & Sisters, Soul, The Minimart, Lick Creative, Golin and Leo Burnett for hosting them all.

3rd years create a brand for Saatchi & Saatchi

Saatchi arrivalAs soon as we received the “create a brand” brief from Saatchi & Saatchi, the 3rd year room was filled with business talk, making us all feel like we were starring on “The Apprentice”.

We expected Julie to morph into Lord Alan Sugar at any point.

Thankfully she didn’t!

We all made it to Saatchi&Saatchi without any cheesy team names, cheap suits or corny phrases like:

“I’m the king of business, and I wipe my bum with money because I’m gonna be so rich”.

With all our brands in hand, we revealed them to Alex Sattlecker & Linda Weitgasser.

We presented a range of ideas from sitcoms to medicines that make you sick. Holly & Joanna even touched on the hot topic of transgender.

Congratulations to

Thank you Tas for a fabulous day of strategy and storytelling.

image2Not only did Tas wow the 3rd years with his own inimitable style of lecturing on strategy and storytelling, he showed them a thing or two about ping pong! Thank you so much Tas for such an intellectually stimulating day!

This week also sees the launch of Tas’ book ‘The Storytelling Book’. Here’s Diego, Mohamed and Julie with Tas at the book launch at the fabulous Phoenix cinema in London!
