Pitches & Preparations

Words: Abi Goodman

“I think there’s some really intelligent design” (Paul Willoughby of Human After All on a magazine pitched by second year students on Option 7: Publishing)

“Some groups have moved on leaps and bounds since their preliminary pitches. It is interesting to see how much ideas have developed over the last week.”(Bilal Alam from Bruntwood on a second year student proposal pitched as part of Option 4: Creative Hub)

It has been a week of pitches to industry representatives ahead of next week’s exhibition. Yesterday we were fortunate to catch some of the pitches made by students on two different second year projects.

The industry professionals gave really useful feedback and advice and we look forward to seeing how students’ work develops even further ahead of next Thursday’s exhibition.

Today we headed to the Mount Street venue to get an idea of what the space looks like before a massive transformation begins during the installation work next week. We caught up with first year’s working on the Imagined Museum project who were busy installing. We can’t wait to see the space fully transformed!
