This is a recruitment campaign I’ve been working on recently for the Careers Service at The University of Manchester which is being rolled out at the moment, both on and offline.
Shot by the wonderful Jonathan Oakes in his Manchester studio using real students, and ably assisted by Anthony Cassell. The shots were styled by the fabulously talented Lisa Westwell.
Special thanks too, go to my clients: Tracey Campbell-Monks and Anne Milligan. (No relation.)
The colours look a bit fruity on here and are better when downloaded.

This is a series of World Firsts that The University of Manchester can lay claim to.
I was going to go for a ‘cleverer’ headline. Something along the lines of: Coming first is second nature. However, on reflection, because the achievements are so incredibly brilliant and interesting, I don’t think the headline needs to work that hard. What do you think?
Feel free to click on the images and download the jpgs to see their true colours and read the text. For some reason, the logo looks blue on here, but comes out fine when you save it to your desktop.

That’s Knowledge, Wisdom, Humanity to the rest of us.
Which is the motto of The University of Manchester.
Why am I telling you this?
Well, I’ve been very remiss of late with regard to updating my blog. And the reason being is that I have recently taken up a position, at the aforementioned University, as their Head of Creative.
And, why should you give two hoots about this?
Well, you shouldn’t.
But I do have the privilege of working in a gloriously inspiring campus which I just had to share with the class because it is so beautiful.
I feel very fortunate to be treading the same cobblestones as 25 Nobel prizewinners.
Unfortunately, I don’t think they give Nobel prizes for graphic design.
