When we launched Newspaper Club we had no real idea who would use the product or what they would do with it. One of the joys is finding out.
One group of people that do lots of brilliant, inspiring things are art and design students. Last year we had a whole bunch of really exciting papers printed for final projects and student shows. It’s approaching that time of year again so we thought we’d make a bit of an effort this time. Get the best china out, invite the in-laws round, make a logo, do some blogging. That kind of thing.
I’m proud to announce Newspaper Club’s inaugural Student Week. We’ll have a series of blog posts which we hope will help in these last few weeks of your degree. Stuff about organising a portfolio, what employers look for, how to go about getting a job in design. Lots of you email us with questions about printing – for dissertations and the like – so we’ll tackle that, probably in a podcast or something. And then at the end of the week we’ll launch something special.
Oh and we might have a competition. Sales & Marketing wanted to give a Vespa as a prize, but we can’t afford that, so we might give away a Wispa. Or maybe some free printing. (We ought to ask our new MD first.)
By our calculations (Googling) you all get back from Easter holidays on Monday 23rd April. So we’ll start student week then.
How does that sound?
