College for Creative Studies: 1 in 5 Teenagers Will Experiment With Art

"College for Creative Studies's (CCS's) 'PSA' campaign, launched in September, has recently gone viral with more than 1,000,000 hits and shares on various social networking and blogging sites including Facebook and Twitter. Created by advertising agency, Team Detroit (Dearborn, MI), the campaign loosely parodies popular anti–drug campaigns from the 1980s and 90s. This light–hearted approach is intended to help recruit potential students to CCS...

'We understand that applying to an art and design College requires a serious commitment on the part of students and families. There is a competitive entry process and we offer students a rigorous education while providing graduates with a solid career trajectory,' says CCS President Richard L. Rogers. 'With this campaign we are able to convey a serious message in an amusing manner. We are grateful to Team Detroit for spearheading this great effort with their stellar pro–bono work. It is particularly impactful that CCS alumni Vic Quattrin, Brandi Keeler and Michael Burdick helped to develop the campaign.'

The entire campaign is supported by a fully–integrated marketing effort including print, broadcast, outdoor, cinema and online advertisements with the tagline, 'Talk to your kids about art school: a message from the College for Creative Studies.' It went viral due to a post from the Tulsa Oklahoma based Philbrook Museum of Art's Facebook page.

'As an institution that strongly embraces social media and its growing potential, we are always looking for compelling content to share with our online communities. This campaign certainly struck a chord with us on a humorous level, but it is the underlying sentiment and advocacy for the arts as a viable career path that made this campaign special. It was such a pleasure to play a part in this viral phenomenon,' says Online Communities Manager Jeff Martin, Philbrook Museum of Art."

This Way Up: QUT Communication Design final year exhibition

"This Way Up presents the work of graduating students from the Bachelor of Creative Industries, Communication Design and the Bachelor of Fine Arts, Animation degrees in the Creative Industries Faculty at QUT. The exhibition features final year projects, including experimental tangible media installations, virtual environments and animation. The tangible media projects by communication design students build on years of knowledge acquisition in visual and interactive media design and are a site of innovation in embodied interfaces. The animation show–reel features progressive and major new works in motion graphics, character animation, visual effects, computer graphics, visualisation and 3D animation. And the virtual environments projects combine the forces of the two cohorts in an exploration of the design potential of interactive 3D space."
