We’ve joined forces with Wunderman Thompson for Black Cat Crits – an evening of quick-fire book crits with various teams from their agency.

From 6pm on Wednesday, March 25, we’ll be at their swanky offices to offer 20 junior creative teams the opportunity for feedback on their portfolio – with their faves potentially bagging a placement too.

Their clients include HSBC, Nestle (KitKat, Aero etc), Duracell, Samsung, Microsoft, BT and EE to name a few. And they’re part of Placement Poverty Pledge, so you don’t have to worry about earning anything less than the London Living Wage.

Getting your hands on a ticket gives each team/solo creative at least two x 25 min crits from creatives at Wunderman Thompson – with at least one being with a Creative Lead/CD/ECD.

There’ll also be plenty of time talk to other staff, network and have drinks in between crits.

And, and, and, did we mention it’s free? We’re just operating our ‘£5 refundable on attendance’ ticket.

Sound good?
