Advertising works by blending the present with the future. Advertisements tell us stories about ourselves and who we could be, inviting us to join product- or brand-based communities. This unit utilises various forms of practical exercises to examine and simulate the diverse theories and approaches underlying the contemporary advertising industry. Through these creative and critical exercises, students explore how the skills integral to advertising also underpin other sectors of the diverse media industries, such as journalism, public relations, marketing, and media arts.
