Education - Studio

Today our Strategic Director Mike Bond accompanies our long-term client and collaborator Simon Pride for a joint presentation on the theme of 'Building engaging HE brands'. As Director of Marketing and Communications at Harper Adams University, Simon has worked with Bond & Coyne to develop the Harper Adams brand and is in the process of rolling-out the new proposition across all brand touchpoints.

Having spoked together at previous CIM and UUK events, they are looking forward to this latest sector event: 'Find A Univeristy' Marketing Conference being held this year in Sheffield.

Visit from filmmaker John Ingle

This week we were fortunate to be joined by filmmaker John Ingle. His cinematography talents found early acclaim when he was invited to attend the New Frontier Lab at the Sundance Institute in Utah. His films focus on a variety of subjects, but all contain a delicate beauty and visceral attention to detail.

John studied at Kingston University where Bond and Coyne’s Strategic Director, Mike Bond is a Visiting Lecturer. We urge everyone to go and view his work.


Visit from NoGhost VR

We have NoGhost coming into the studio next week to share 'all things virtual reality' with the B&C team and some of our education clients. 

VR appears to be more than a fleeting tech moment, with phone manufacturers and software developers creating VR experiences that can live in our pockets. People can go all-in by purchasing VR headsets such as the Vive (which goes one further than the passive experience provided on phones and the Oculus) by introducing controllers that respond in real time. Using the controllers means it is possible to interact with a digital environment in a much more natural way; with your hands. 

Having experienced the Vive last year for a spot of archery, I for one am excited to see everyone's reaction when we get it in the studio alongside some mobile VR. 

I'm sure what follows will be an exciting conversation about the opportunities to extend our creative and design thinking into the virtual space – for education and beyond. We will report back after the event...
