Creativity in Advertising
The aim of our Creativity in Advertising course is to help you build a portfolio – essential requirement to start working as a creative in an advertising agency.
How do we achieve that? At The Atomic Garden is like being at an advertising agency, learning from active professionals who are more chiefs than teachers, listening to the ones who started their careers where you are standing now, entering the direct contact with producers, sound and photography studios and working with them in a live environment, and of course developing your skills to be able to move from pre-work in school to actual work in an advertising agency.
The perfect portfolio is our academic program. A program with classes, hours, briefings and teachers, developed together with top creative directors to meet the expectations they place on our students: to develop the perfect portfolio because they see them as future employees.
At the end of the course, you will have the opportunity to show your portfolio to the creative directors of the best agencies around.
