The One Club Creative Boot Camp – Education

Proud to be a part of it! 3 days of LCC and Newport students coming together for a unique international event. Judging was difficult but the winning team formed on the bootcamp was a team of both Universities sharing the glory.

A major component of The One Club mission is to educate and inspire students of the business and to benefit the next generation of creatives through scholarships, portfolio reviews, annual exhibitions and competitions.

The One Club Creative Boot Camp is a diversity initiative with the goal of recruiting creative students from multicultural backgrounds who may not be aware of advertising or design as viable career options. 

Creative Boot Camp is an intensive 4-day workshop introducing students to the creative side of advertising. Students work on behalf of a real client and follow steps outlined by the industry — receiving a brief, concepting, creating a campaign, and pitching it to a group of top industry creatives who determine the best work.

The beauty of this program is in the short time line. While other boot camps ask students to dedicate anywhere from two weeks to an entire summer to explore advertising, ours is a quick immersion to introduce them to the field. If a participating student finds that he or she is interested in pursuing a career in the industry, The One Club is able to use our connections to facilitate further opportunities within this field.

On November 15th – 18th, the One Club’s Creative Boot Camp traveled to London, bringing together some of the top advertising creatives, educators and students in the U.K. for it’s award winning workshop. It also happened to be their first international Boot Camp session. With over 150 students from 12 different colleges and universities in the London area participating in the program, this session was the One Club’s largest boot camp session yet, hosted by the London College of Communication.
