Start Of Academic Collaborations

cck pr timeline 2004 bucks5 November
We strike up our first academic collaboration when Julie Wright, a Course Leader for the BA (Hons) Advertising at The Buckinghamshire New University, sets her students a CCK-based assignment. In a project brief (course module GD302A), she asks the students to come up with an advertising campaign and branding for Coffee, Cake & Kink, with the final works judged by us. We spend a fun afternoon with the students, all well-fuelled with coffee and cake on the house. Julie's advertising course goes on to be among the top three in the country, with students scooping a clutch of prestigious top industry awards. For Coffee, Cake & Kink it's the beginning of a series of academic collaborations, from London College of Fashion students designing uniforms for us to Florida State University featuring CCK in their student handbooks as a cool London hangout.
