Hello Second Year

Hi everyone!

Sorry for the long delay with this post, after being back to reality for about a week now, starting all of my second year units and a new internship, I thought it about time to get back to this blog…

Over the summer I have been lucky enough to travel the East coast of Australia, see the sights of Barcelona and enjoy the sounds of some of my favourite artists Benicassim (I have added a few snaps from my instagram below). Not to mention spending some much needed time catching up with all my family and friends back home in Newcastle. The end of first year seems like forever ago, after having this amazing summer, it’s a bit of a shock to the system getting back to the grind of working but exciting nonetheless.




I have had all of my induction lectures/seminars this week which has made me super excited for what second year at university has to hold. One of my units is Agency Life, this part of the course has given me the opportunity to work with Photolink Creative Group which I also started on Wednesday, check out the next up and coming blog post for more about my new internship.

Thanks for reading!



DMMP Portfolio

Today nearing the last of my Digital Media and Marketing Platforms seminars we were asked to post a portfolio of all of our 1st year work onto a social media page, working in groups. We decided to use our digital marketing agency, JDVE, Facebook profile we had created for our first marked assignment for the uint, gaining a 2:1 for the finished posts! After putting all of our work together, it was interesting to see what we had all accomplished and covered;

Google Trends

Mobile Marketing

Email Marketing

Application of Social Media and Blogging in the Real World




Also videos shown in my previous post, just to name a few.


As apart of my Digital Media and Marketing Platforms unit we have been looking into the YouTube ‘unboxing’ phenomenon. These videos usually show a new product being unpackaged, the most common being electrical goods, these usually being very informative for the viewer too.

We were then given the task to get creative and form an Unboxing video for a simple Kinder Egg! After an intense session of brainstorming together, we decided to choose an old classic, Humpty Dumpty to focus our short video on.

Drawing up our storyboard and bringing a personality to our chocolate egg we were ready to start shooting! luckily Manchester weather held out for us and gave us the opportunity to add some shades to the mix!
