Core - Strategic Communication



Advertising is one of the key methods which organisations use to be relevant and persuasive in the context of the contemporary use of paid media. Within the context of an integrated campaign for a brand or organisation, students explore how messages are developed from attributes and other features or other distinctive elements in a brand (product, service, or corporate entity). Students identify how the message provides a benefit to the target audience and apply techniques to articulate that benefit through an appeal, so it is impactful to the audience by being expressed in a creative way. Students are introduced to essential skills required in developing a clear brief for the development of advertising.
