Making Connections

We believe that networking is the best way of making the connections you will need to create the career path you want. 


As network members of D&AD, our students have the opportunity to enter the annual New Blood competition which can result in winning the prestigious yellow pencil.

Over the years students have showcased their work at D&AD New Blood, London and this has launched many careers, with students securing roles in the top London agencies.


Two + Two

Two+Two is the premier event for Creative and Marketing students in the North. Organised by Creative Resource, huge numbers of graduates have found roles through Two+Two so far. Each year our students make connections with agencies both local and national. 


Pecha Kucha

Once a month we take our students to the fabulous PechaKucha evening in Manchester City Centre. It's a great way of networking, winding down and having a relaxed drink in the company of friends, whilst listening to a range of short talks on all things creative.  And if you fancy it, you too can give a talk! 



Glug is a great way of meeting practitioners from the creative community. Each month in Manchester, creatives offer a series of talks and informal networking, making Glug one of the most exciting, credible and well-attended creative events. Grab a slice of pizza and come along.


Print Fairs & Markets

Students from the Graphic Design and Animation & Illustration courses have the option to become involved in designer-maker fairs and events. Students create work for sale and agree pricing from which a small commission is taken. The students then work on the stand which helps build confidence when selling their work as well as putting them in touch with other designer-makers. The aim is to expand this into an online shop.
