A Creative Advertising degree allows you to develop and hone your strong creative skills, giving you the tools to work in a broad range of agency and corporate environments within the advertising industry. Working initially as an art director, copywriter or account co-ordinator, you may look forward to a career as a creative director or account supervisor or you can choose to pursue graduate studies.
Our grads and students are at the top of an exceptionally competitive field. They have distinguished themselves against other Canadian colleges and universities in industry contests including the 2015 Grip Juicer Competition – first place out of 14 teams, 2014 Advertising Standards Canada competition – first and fourth place out of 41 submissions from 20 schools, and the National Advertising Awards, where Humber recently swept the student category. That’s right: Creative Advertising’s teams took first, second and third place.
This year, two of our recent grads were named to the Strategy Magazine Report Card of top ten copywriters and Art Directors in Canada. Our grads and students have won a Cannes Lion award; three Cannes Young Lions; One Show Gold; the Carte Blanche for Creatives Award; Gold and Best of Show in the Media Innovation Awards; a CMYK Magazine Top 100 Creatives award; and a Young Guns award, as well as interschool competitions like the Design School Challenge run by the Publicis agency. Humber students won the CTV Campaign Challenge for election campaign advertising, have been featured on the cover of Applied Arts, and Marketing Magazine, and have won numerous awards from Applied Arts Magazine and the Design Club of Canada.
