NEW DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON
FUTURERISING HQ / KING'S CROSS / LONDON
WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE PART
Advertising is an evolving industry that offers a handful of jobs to the best and brightest brains from around the country.
Despite this, it’s completely normal for graduates to spend up to two years finding their feet before getting their first job. It can often take many months for students to bulk out their portfolio with good enough ideas that can get the attention of the best agencies.
This is why we’ve created an creative advertising bootcamp, to help students, recent grads and even junior pros speed up that process with an intensive day of inspiration and idea generating.
The aim of the day is for everyone to walk away with 100 ideas, and a handful of great concepts that can be used to bulk out your portfolio.
Having studied design Ricky hustled his way into some of London’s leading ad agencies including Wieden + Kennedy, AKQA and Ogilvy where he provided campaigns for clients like Nike, Coke, Adidas, and Samsung.
Ricky continues to work in the creative industry, where he experiments on an eclectic mix of creative projects across all areas of visual communication.
Ricky also pursues a number of self driven creative and research projects and shares his experiences openly through talks, articles, and a journal posts that he updates regularly.More...

Jury at Cannes and D&AD
"He's a natural presenter, and conveys his drive and enthusiasm in a way that's impossible not to feel inspired by. He's also got an infectious 'why not?' attitude and a strong instinct for cutting through to what really matters - both of which help strike a chord with audiences."

Arts Writer, The Guardian
"Ricky sets himself extremely high standards, and is very exacting in his judgement of his own work. He’s impatient to be at the absolute top of the creative industries. He has a great attention to detail and doesn’t allow his maverick streak to get in the way of getting the job done."
Course Leader & Lecturer, University of Worcester
"His academic integrity and dedication is undisputed and quite remarkable. His innovative self directed studies, alternative solutions and intelligent self promotion ideas demonstrate a natural flair for management and conceptualisation.”
Careers Adviser, University of Oxford
"The insights Ricky provided into applying creativity in the advertising sector inspired many to pursue their dreams of working as creatives, whilst his advice on building and curating a personal brand will have a lasting impact on how they face the world as graduates.”
ON THE DAY
Ricky will review some of the best ideas, campaigns and creative strategies around today. He will explain how these have been employed to great effect and then teach you how to apply the same techniques to create your own fantastic ideas.
Feedback will be given in real time to emulate a real life pitch scenario which will help you to refine your approach and create better ideas moving forward.
You’ll walk away with techniques that will help you consistently generate great ideas and you will be given an individual portfolio crit.
