Encouraging creative thinking with the Rethink Scholarship..

Have a watch of this short video, really creative, thinking out the box stuff. You’ll be amazed at what you can do with a standard book format, some insightful quotes too.

It’s for the Rethink Scholarship in Canada which is an $18,000 scholarship for aspiring art directors and designers to Langara College’s Communication and Ideation Design course.

Naturally they’ve got a super cool entry website here where they talk about how to enter and what they are looking for in an obviously stylish fashion.

Last years winner of the scholarship was Jim Balakshin who won a two-year scholarship on to the course as well as an internship with Rethink. He’s on Twitter here.

A novel approach to recruiting for entries to what is essentially a University course..

Coming up with ideas, executions and concepts.

Really great presentation deck from Thomas Wagner.

This reminds me of the kind of deck that Andy Bellass produced when I worked at Splendid. Maybe because he’s from an advertising background, I don’t know but he makes decks that don’t look anything like your generic Powerpoint presentations and they take you on a thought provoking and emotive journey, almost holding your hand along the way.
