We've teamed up with Ricky Richards, a freelance creative who also runs bootcamps for young people, so it's fair to say he knows a thing or two. He's designed a brand new bootcamp just for you, so no one else will be getting an opportunity quite like this!
After receiving a degree in design and multimedia, Ricky spent several years honing his craft at London’s leading ad agencies including Wieden + Kennedy, AKQA and Ogilvy where he provided campaigns and award winning ideas for clients such as Nike, Coke, Adidas and Samsung to name a few. Ricky also pursues a number of self driven creative and research projects including a weekly podcast, talks, articles, and regular workshops.
To top it all off, you’ll get to spend the day at the offices of top advertising agency, Ogilvy & Mather, at their super cool offices on Southbank. It’s not every day you get to peek inside somewhere like that!
This is a great opportunity to meet other young creative people, but you could always come with a friend!
