Creative Advertising grads shine bright
Arrabelle Stavroff and Darrel Knight are two recent Creative Advertising graduates that are already making a name for themselves in the ad industry.
Arrabelle was the Toronto winner of the inaugural Portfolio Night All-Stars competition, which has earned her a trip to New York City this week and the chance to compete against 24 other advertising graduates from schools around the world.
As part of the week-long challenge, the 32-year-old copywriter will work on a real brief from a real client, while being mentored and coached by members of the Art Directors Club, the organizers of the competition.
Darrel, meanwhile, has been recognized with a 2013 Applied Arts Student award — one of the industry's most prestigious recognitions of creative excellence. Darrel’s Bounty Paper Towel creative will appear in the November/December 2013 issue of Applied Arts, Canada's visual communications magazine. This special awards issue is often used by employers to scout new talent.
Darrell will also be featured in the Advertising Design Club of Canada (ADCC) annual show in early November where it will be announced if his print ad created for Kiss My Face toothpaste will receive either a gold, silver or merit award. Entries for the ADCC annual show come from across Canada and include several international entries as well.
Seneca’s Creative Advertising program focuses on the strategic planning and creative concept development of advertising communications.
