The Loeries Exhibition is a highlight on the Loeries annual calendar; stopping at educational institutions, expos, and public spaces within South Africa.
The exhibition adds value to all students, businesses and professionals within the brand communications fields, with the aim to inspire and educate. It is also a great opportunity for learners to understand the career opportunities available in the brand communication industry, across a wide array of disciplines, including: brand identity, architecture & interior design, package & publication design, motion graphic design, direct marketing, PR Communication, non-broadcast video, live events, sponsorship, digital communication and integrated campaigns.
“The creative economy offers fantastic employment opportunities,” says Loeries CEO, Andrew Human. “Ideas have great value and by providing our talented youth with an education, they can convert a blank computer screen into something of economic value. There is no reason why South Africa cannot harness our young minds and compete globally in this space.”
“The Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University is looking forward to hosting the Loerie Travelling exhibition in August 2014. It provides opportunities for Nelson Mandela Bay creatives – scholars, students, professionals and enthusiasts – to review the very best that the South African creative industry has to offer, across a range of brand communication disciplines, including design, advertising and illustration. The Loerie exhibition is a valuable educational tool. Winning a Loerie award is an aspiration for South African creatives. Students are particularly inspired by this annual showcasing of talent and use it as a benchmark for their own work. The Loeries travelling exhibition assists in highlighting brand communication, design and advertising as viable and rewarding career opportunities to the public, scholars and students,” says Inge Economou, Lecturer and Programme Leader of Graphic Design from the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University.
The Loeries Travelling Exhibition will be hosted at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. Entry to view the exhibition is free.
