You will be introduced to the principles of marketing and will learn to understand the client brief. Through a series of lectures and workshops you will apply your knowledge and research to an industry-based project. You will learn to understand the importance of the consumer relationship which is the focus of marketing and business strategies, as well creative researching and thinking techniques which will support these strategies. There will be an opportunity for a retail field trip to support this project.

Having understood the creative business process and generated ideas and research around the client brief, you will now add structure to your proposal. You will be given guidance in creating a business proposal based on specific creative business models. To encourage your experimentation, creativity and enterprise, you will have creative workshops using extensive facilities, unique resources and high-tech digital technologies which are available to all students and supported by our skilled technicians.

You will have further creative workshops which will bring your proposal to life for the all-important client pitch. Lectures and tutorials will support you in readiness for the client pitch and you will have further opportunities to create a final creative business report for the client. Both technical and tutor support will be available to support you in the lead-up to making your final pitch.
