Solent saves the world!

Our planet is in crisis and there's no guarantee we'll survive it! What are the key social, political and economic problems facing the world? What dangers do they present and how can we combat them? Is it time to give up? No! It's time to call the communicators; those who have the skills to explain problems and solutions to others and convince us all that making a change can 'save the world'. Students will work on a challenging and engaging campaign brief, build creative solutions with the UK's next generation of communicators, and launch their ideas to the world that day via social media.

Duration: One day (9am-5pm)

Responding to our client's brief for a new fashion magazine, students have the opportunity to create original digital artwork in our professional photographic studios and learn how to incorporate this into their own magazine cover design. They could use their journalistic skill to create imaginative, eye-catching text, or employ their stylistic design skills to create original and compelling imagery. Students are guided at all stages, from the initial concept through to the final product. At the end of the day, they will have launched the face for a new magazine concept - online and in print!
