Now let's recap the graduation! 🥳
We're absolutely thrilled to have partnered with Sky on the course and had the opportunity to host our 2023 graduation at the Sky HQ in Isleworth. The graduation was our chance to celebrate the hard work of the course attendees, learn from industry leaders and network all in one.
To kick it all off, we had Sky's Group Executive Creative Director of Brand and Design Ceri Sampson open with a warm welcome to the audience and a congratulatory message to our attendees. This was followed by an impactful statement from Designed By Jujubeng's very own CEO and Founder Naimat 'Jujubeng' Ajimobi.
Our host for the evening was Ayobami Akinyode Olunloyo, Head of Trading Sales @ Sky and he did an incredible job of interviewing all of our guest speakers throughout the evening and keeping our audience entertained!
Be The Visuals Panel:
After a successful networking session, we went into our first segment of the evening, a fireside chat on gender in marketing and what it takes to create a personal brand.
On the panel, we had 3 inspirational female leaders:
Each panelist, shared their stories around being a leading-lady in their respective industries and the journey they each took to get there. Their stories left everyone highly motivated and our audience was nothing short of mesmerised!
Award winning work: Sky Creative case studies
The biggest in-house creative agency in Europe, Sky Creative, gave us an exclusive look at two of the projects they have been working on from brief to actualisation.
Emily Brown (Brand Designer at Sky) showed us the process of how her team rebranded the Sky Kids channel whilst Alex Haley (Group Creative Director at Sky) gave us an in depth look at the Kick It Out project.
We invited two of our Branding 101 Alumni members (Kowiyat Ajimobi - Founder and CEO of The Lady Powerhouse CIC and Maya Egbo - Founder of Beyond Art) to speak on their experience of the course and the impact it had on their brands to date.
It was lovely to hear about their journey's and just how much the course and community have contributed to their businesses. I encourage you to check out the work they are both doing for their communities!
Overall, the event was phenomenal. Every attendee gained from the experience and we cannot wait to make next year's graduation bigger and better - You're all invited!
