Test Tube Creatives

Our six week stint is soon to come to a close this Friday. Life after Lowe will continue as another door opened today leading us further west. Leo Burnett is running a placement scheme called 'the Leo Lab' which puts three creative teams in a melting pot to see who survives – hell yeah we're up for that.

So after a bit of pestering, some good fortune and a little elbow grease we've managed to swindle ourselves into the Lab and start on the 7th of April. This gives us a week in between to get our beauty sleep and some well deserved and needed haircuts.

Yeah you fucking cunts.

I don't really mean that actually but it seems like the latest trend is to accuse you both of being complete tossers.

Keep on truckin fuckers.

Hi!
I know you been answering this question before. But I have tweaked it a little.

Which university is the best?
You said you did go to Bucks.
and that Falmouth was good?

do you know anything about Middlesex University in London?

I am a second year student studying in Australia, but I want to change environment. I should probably go for a more theoretical course, one towards media planning. Saw that Bucks have one of those. What can you say about that one?

Sorry for asking again, and sorry for the long question.
Thanks for the help, and kudos to you going to Burnett!

@carl johan – we dont know anything about middlesex university, sorry. the best course is probably st. martins. if post graduate than watford hands down! yes bucks has an creative planning course, but we really cant tell you anything bout it as its quite new.

@anonymous 12:50 – we'll put our whole portfolio online at some point soonish and you can have a look then, as not much of our work is featured on this blog. and yes we have several recruitment agencies we work with. the talent business and LizH are two of our favourites, you can google them easily.

peace.

I can't believe you're still manage to be nice to people who quite openly hate you and everything about you.
Hat off for that. I would have smoke coming out of my ears by now.

good luck at leo's.
