We are thrilled to have supported Creative Resource’s Two+Two event in Manchester for several years now. The event is a fantastic opportunity for upcoming creative and marketing talents to come together and showcase their skills. Over 150 students participate in the event, working on a live brief while being mentored by industry professionals. The ideas are then judged by a panel of experts, and this year’s winning team is invited to Headline Sponsor, Coinbase’s London offices for a full-day immersive workshop with the firm’s UK marketing team, international brand team and international design leads. As part of this experience, they design a marketing campaign that will be displayed throughout Coinbase’s London offices.

We were a creative partner for this year’s event, providing complimentary design work and printing. We also sent mentors for the day, including Senior Copywriter Nick Watmough and Account Director Louisa Thomas. Our Creative Director, Paul Dunleavy, was also one of the judges.

This year, the students were challenged to demonstrate the potential of blockchain technology and crypto assets. They formed teams of 30 students across 5 groups and were asked to think about how they can capture the public’s imagination on the potential of blockchain technology and crypto assets to update the system to drive societal change, and ultimately demystify the industry.

The Red Snakes team emerged as the winners, with their simple demonstration of how blockchain technology can provide reassurance and transparency in the food supply chain to consumers and retailers. The other finalists will also receive mentorships and internships from a host of agencies, including ourselves, and we are excited to work with them soon.

Congratulations to all involved and thank you to Creative Resource for once again putting on such an inspiring event!
