BuildingF (formerly the AdCentre) brings marketers and agencies together with advanced students from virtually any Humber program to produce strategic creative content and technology solutions.
Instead of just being given a grade for assignments, students are provided with a chance to work with real clients, on actual accounts, receiving first-hand experience in the field.
The disciplines that can be accessed through BuildingF include anything found in a modern advertising, design or PR agency, including brand experience design, communications marketing, advertising design, writing, production, and much more.
The program will focus on providing students with skills that will enable them to work with advertising agencies, copywriters, graphic and interactive designers, art directors and suppliers.
Our graduates can find employment in entry-level positions such as advertising traffic co-ordinator, assistant account co-ordinator, junior account co-ordinator and marketing/advertising specialist, co-ordinating the creative activities in advertising departments of small- to medium-sized advertising, design, marketing, and communications agencies including not-for-profit organizations.
This program will be of most interest to Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) graduates and transfer students from other advertising-related programs.
