"I was one of a lucky few that had jobs lined up as soon as I finished with BA (Hons) Creative Advertising (renamed BA (Hons) Advertising) at LCC. It's been a whirlwind journey ever since getting into the real world. I'm currently working on Nike at AKQA as a Creative. On the side, I run Yin&Yang lifestyle magazine with a fellow course student set up in 2009. It's been our gateway into the industry without ever needing a book. Don't ever stop creating."
LAURA FONTES DE CASTRO and NICOLAS BRUCK
About us: "We met during our BA (Hons) Advertising course at London College of Communication and became a creative team. Nicolas is German and Laura is Spanish. We have a pretty hard time understanding each other's accents and would rather get our arms ripped off than listen to each other's music. Nicolas doesn't really wear socks and sandals and Laura doesn't own a polka dot flamenco dress. We do drink lots of beer and eat a fair amount of chorizo though!
We were handpicked by UAL for a creative workshop at ad agency Mother London in our last year and got a creative internship over the summer at Clubhouse Studios, a Shoreditch based creative agency. After two months, we became a full-time Junior Creative Team and we are in charge of digital work for Ben and Jerry's UK. We do everything from start to finish, which includes scamping, pitching and producing. We also eat a tub a day for research purposes!"
"The course helped me to push boundaries I didn't even realise were there, while providing me with direct industry contacts."
