A new fully recognised programme called Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Advertising and Design 3+0 is introduced by IACT College, in collaboration with the University of Sunderland, UK, explore design within an advertising context. The programme helps the students in skilful thinking, ggenerating radical ideas and creative solution so that they can excel in the industry after they graduated.
Me along with 4 bloggers had the chance to attended a Creative Advertising and Design Workshop by IACT College recently. It started with a speech by Mr. Mark Grunden, the Admission and Marketing Manager.
After Mr. Grunden's speech, we and all of the other participants, ranging from school leavers to Diploma students from other colleges, moved to the lab where Ms. Queenie, Art and Programme Design Leader showed us some insights about design.
We get to have hands-on experience on designing a portrait of ourselves by using Adobe Illustrator, a design software frequently used by designers!
One example of creative advertisment, featuring the little Volkswagen Polo shielding a group of policemen, hinting the 'small but tough' tagline:
We (the bloggers who attended that day) also had some fun in the broadcast studio! I like this photo very much! Nice expression and vivid colours! Photo credit to Ohfishiee.blogspot.com!
Together with the awesome Veronica (3rd from the right)!
With me sitting on the chair!
See how happy Joel was in the studio! The strong lighting of the studio makes it the perfect place to camwhore!!
Some of the works done in the studio! Cool photos!
Moving on to the recording studio, where deejays and singers are born!

Lastly, a picture of Mr. Grunden mingling with us during lunch!
