We Sail the Good Ship Salford

As one of Manchester’s leading marketing agencies, we like to have our finger on the pulse, not just when it comes to what’s going in the industry but also its up-and-coming talent.

When a message in a bottle arrived in our office, hand delivered by some of the University of Salford’s final year graphic designers inviting us to their pirate themed ‘Good Ship Salford’ event, we thought it would be a great opportunity for us to scope out the talent (while enjoying a couple of cold bottles of grog of course).

The networking event took place at Black Dog Ballroom in Manchester City Centre and provided a platform for the Graphic Design and Design Communication students to show off their portfolios to movers and shakers within Manchester’s marketing industry.

Seeing as Carrie our Digital Designer, Mark our Web Editor, and our Content Manager Adam are all Salford alumni, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go see what the new breed of students have been up to while catching up with some old faces.

We were impressed with the quality of work that we were shown by students specialising in a range of disciplines from web design and branding to photography and stop motion animation.

Thanks for a great evening Salford! You never know, we might even be seeing some of your students again in the not too distant future.
