Two+Two is back, bringing together more than 180 students from universities across the North as they go head-to-head on a live client brief where they’ll have the opportunity to make their pitch a reality.

Taking place in Manchester on 20th February, the one-day event will provide aspiring young creatives with the opportunity to network with industry professionals – while giving them a taste of what it’s like to work on a real campaign.

This year, the event is in aid of Millie’s Trust, who provide free and low-cost first aid training. Students will be tasked with developing a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of paediatric first aid.

For the third year running, we’ll be returning to play a key role in Two+Two. Our Creative Director Angelo Giaquinto will form part of the judging panel while our Head of Creative, Paul Grimshaw, and Head of Strategy, Kate Cook will be circulating throughout the day, helping students to develop their campaigns.

So, what will our judge be looking out for on the day?

We’re really keen to meet people who can get creative without letting the big idea run away with them. Our ideal student will also have an awareness of time management and work effectively as a team to ensure they meet deadlines, just like they would in the real world.

We’re also really pleased to be able to provide the print for some of the collateral – including printed biographies of different industry experts who’ll be on hand to answer questions as the day goes on. Our in-house photographers and videographers will also be poised, ready to capture all the action.

Two+Two is a wonderful experience for students and mentors alike. It offers a fantastic opportunity to support a great cause, while giving us a chance to meet the next generation of talent.
