From industry collaborations to exciting agency internship opportunities, BA (Hons) Advertising develops innovative thinking, creativity and enterprise expertise needed for a successful career in the industry. Placing emphasis on work-related projects throughout the course, students are given extensive opportunities to hone their skills and showcase their work.

Graduating students from the course exhibited work from their final year as part of LCC Degree Shows 2017: Media School, alongside students from BA (Hons) Photography, BA (Hons) Journalism and BA (Hons) Photojournalism & Documentary Photography.

Here, we shine a spotlight on some of the students exhibiting in the show…

Alice Fortuna

‘Feel the Music’

Alice’s work poses the question, in a digital era where everything around us is non-tactile, how do we reconnect with our senses? ‘Feel the Music’ makes use of sound visualisation technologies that are used to map sounds, which are then embossed on paper. The result is a campaign that awakens our senses by allowing us to experience what music ‘feels’ like to the touch.

Nicholas Tan

‘Ballet Is Everything’

Nicholas’ short film informs the audience that there are many undiscovered aspects of ballet. He invites you to explore the rich emotions of a ballet performance, with the film acting as an informative portal for the general public of what to expect from a ballet performance in the Royal Opera House.


Through ‘Brix’, on behalf of Nationwide, Nicholas attempts to combine the arduous task of saving with the collective fun of engaging with communities around us. Designing a game that not only functions as a fun way to connect with friends online, but also helps you to save money in the process, users can build their own virtual home and create vibrant communities.


Dominic Tung

‘Brave Blood’

‘Brave Blood’ seeks to partner brave ex-service personnel with internship placements lasting six months. Dominic, with the help of Daniel Liakh as Creative Director and Josh Croston as copywriter, thoughtfully conveys to agencies how veterans can bring unique insight and bravery to the industry, in return for an engaging environment.

‘Royal Opera House’

The Royal Opera House ‘O’ Face campaign is a cheeky approach to introduce  opera amongst younger adults. Dominic visualises the campaign launch with a Lip-Sync Booth, where you can enter it solo, or battle it out with a friend. The Lip-Sync Booth takes a photo when you get to the highest note, and that’s when you have your ‘O’ Face captured. From there, you have the option to share with your friends on social media.



‘Treat Yoself’

‘Treat Yoself’ is an interactive way for the youth to connect with nursing. The main aim of the game is to attend to the injured as fast as you can. To heat things up, you can challenge friends, and stay updated with new story lines and characters. The game will be promoted through YouTube influencers and pop-up exhibitions in schools.
