Achievements: Placement @ Havas Lynx
Progression to: Job at The Flava People
Following a chance meeting with a Havas Lynx employee, Jamie added them to the End of Year Show invite list and took the opportunity to deliver the invite by hand; securing their attendance at the show. During the show, Jamie’s contact offered a way into Havas Lynx and he sent his CV & portfolio to them. His email resulted in a two-week paid placement under the supervision of D&AD winner and creative director Paul Kinsella. At Havas Lynx Jamie impresses Paul with his creative work commenting on one idea “that’s f***k’n genius!”. Paul offered Jamie a mentoring programme with routes into the industry using his valuable contacts.
Update: Jamie is now working at The Flava People as a package designer with clients such as YO!, No Yolk and Flava~it. He recently gave an Alumni talk during lockdown on Packaging Design. Students can now watch this talk through Teams.
“It was such an eye opener, it showed me how hard you have to work. I speak so highly of this course, if I’d gone to MMU I would never have got out of it, what I got out of this.”
