FutureRising dropped by UCL for an afternoon session on the creative industries. There were talks from Elspeth Spelzini (Starcom MediaVest) and Jack Smith (Watford Ad School), a creative challenge and the opportunity to network.
For the creative challenge attendees formed small teams and were given one hour to create ideas in response to a real creative brief. During that hour, our speakers helped the students refine their ideas.
