How do you get in to Kreativ Kommunikation?

Dorte Nielsen explains the application process and what to expect as a KK student (in Danish).

Every year, a lot of talented people want to join the Art Direction & Concepting Bachelor’s Degree course at Kreativ Kommunikation. Unfortunately, we only have 24 spots. So, how do you get one of these places? Here, a little advice …

Be yourself.
Don’t try to be ‘someone in advertising’. There are so many kinds of people in agencies (nerds, maniacs, sweethearts etc.) If you’re curious, creative and communicative by nature, it will come through.
Take it seriously
Applying for KK is not a job application, but in many ways should be taken as seriously. This is your first big step on your career ladder towards a bright creative future!
Ask around. Do research.
Speak to current and past KK students. How did they get in? Do they have advice? Look through this blog at student work and portfolios. Come to the annual Åbent Hus (Open House) day at the school to meet students and teachers. Read relevant literature or websites to figure out what advertising is.

And, if you’re at the beginning of your creative journey and don’t even know where to start, well …

• Start collecting all your creative projects over time, share your work online, find people to admire.
• Become familiar with the Adobe Creative Suite software package (InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator).
• Get relevant work experience as an assistant or junior creative at an ad agency, web studio etc.
• Get involved in creativity and communication! Surf the web; go to poetry slams; write poems; go to exhibitions; create a blog; keep a sketchbook in your bag; tweet; take a lot of photos, observe people on the train; make a band; go to fashion shows; design your own logo. Invent stuff! Be observant! Have fun!

    Hej Kreativ Kommunikation
    Kan se siden er “død”, men har I evt mulighed for at opdatere siden med portfolios? Går ud fra, at der også i år, er udklækket talenter fra jeres linje, og kunne være interessant at se deres arbejde.

    Mvh Mads
