Matt Page a visitor to the FD shores since he set sail to the MINT course at Salford popped back into the studio to discuss with initially a few and then ALL FD2 about the pathway he has selected. It's a huge benefit for the class and the course to have ex-students like Matt, Janine, Emma Szoztok and Jordan Coombes all of whom have gone onto Salford come and give a student-eyed view of life at the University. Matt passed on a number of links for the group to see what he's been up to.
16 into 1 does go . . .
For the first time since FD started in 2009 ALL of FD2 want to progress to the University to complete their BA Hons. Whether all can achieve the goal of a single year has yet to be resolved - the interviews start in the first week of March!
It's almost time for the London trip again. 25 of the group along with the editor and sub-editor set off to the capital for the every-other-year pilgrimage to the world of the advertising agencies and the usual museums. On the agenda is the Design Museum, Creature, Tate Modern, BMB and Adam & EveDDB and in between times the students are hoping to get to the Natural History Museum and The Shard. Watch the Blog for a report on the five day frolic!!
Genius or W**ker?
In late March a group of students and the editor are heading to Manchester and a D&AD event . . . with guest speaker Neville Brody - it should be quite a night out!!!!
Well, we don't know what happened but from a meeting with God suddenly students and editor are faced with 'The Digital Revolution Revisted'?!! While in London one eminent practioner did suggest that the D&AD had lost their way - it's a huge disappointment for all involved - a query has been aimed at the organisation to find out why.
