This unit builds students’ ability to solve complex communication problems and develop creative copy and concepts for both traditional and new media platforms. Students will explore approaches to ideation that emphasise the social and cultural contexts in which advertising is produced and learn to prepare strategically sound copy platforms. Consumer-focused research and creative strategies will be examined to enable students to critique spoken and textual messaging and apply this insight to the development of 'big ideas' that are communicated through persuasive advertising concepts and copy.
