The advertising and creative industries still lag behind when it comes to diversity, with 32% of black talent leaving the advertising industry as a result of lack of inclusion (according to UK Advertising Census: All In).
The free online platform, Kickstart, seeks to plug skills gaps in the creative industries by helping talented young people to launch their careers and overcome barriers to entry. It has been created in collaboration with creatives from Studio Blup, The Wilderness Agency, Mother London, Guardian Digital, and Brandmovers.
From designing a brand identity to creating video assets for a social media campaign, a series of short courses will give young creatives the tools they need to get into industry.
Work with professional course contributors from under represented communities, some of which have followed an unusual route into their career paths. Many share the advice that they received or the lessons they learned when kickstarting their own careers in the creative industries.
This free online course will be launched in Spring 2023, and has been designed for young people from under-represented backgrounds to break into the creative industries. From designing a brand identity to creating video assets for a social media campaign, this series of short courses will give you the tools you need to get into industry, or progress to further study in the digital creative industries. You will be mentored through the course by Ravensbourne BA (Hons) Advertising and Brand Design students.
