What’s this course about?
Today, we hear a lot about content marketing, social marketing, email marketing, programmatic display, linear TV, ad-tech and a bunch of other things that have zero impact on the essential problem – creating ideas that impact consumer behavior.
In this class you will learn the art of persuasion expressed through creativity. We will discuss what works, what doesn’t and why through trial and error. Advertising is a contact sport and it can only be learned by doing.
You will be given assignments in the form of a creative brief and each week you will present your concepts. Together we will explore avenues of thought, technique and execution to develop great ideas that belong in a portfolio.
Classes will meet once a week in the evening for two hours over a period of nine weeks (class will not be held the week of Thanksgiving).
Guest speakers will be invited to share their wisdom.
