Trust me, I loath hashtags as much as I dislike campaigns that rely on them. With few exceptions, such as #ShoutOuttoHelpOut to help as many graduates get their works seen by as many people as possible.
Welcome to volume 5
Let’s be honest, many graduates of 2020 are sat, back at their parents house. Food and shelter and washing paid for. So perhaps they’re not high on the growing list of what you should give a shit about. Put yourself in their shoes and consider whether you’d appreciate any help. You would. You’re lying if you said you wouldn’t.
#ShoutOuttoHelpOut is here to feature graduates from any creative discipline. You send me a link to your work, I’ll do the rest. You can help by sharing any post or tweet with the hashtag #ShoutOuttoHelpOut.
I am posting everyones work who contacts me on Linkedin (here, here and here), Twitter and Facebook. Helping get their work seen by as many people in the industry as possible. (more information at the bottom of this article)
In Chronological order…
#ShoutOuttoHelpOut Amelia-Jayne Banks and Lewis Rensch. Amelia-Jayne when in trouble but Melia when not (and for short) is a MA grad from Falmouth University, born and raised in Stoke-On-Trent and an EFPN on MBTI (I’ve no idea what that means). When she’s not making ads she’s volunteering or poppin’ bottles in blacked out Russian Limousines & Finnish Rock Bars. Melia’s swam in the Artic and I’ve got a certificate to prove it.
Lewis is born in Buckinghamshire but lived most my life in Cheshire. A graduate from Edinburgh Napier University with a Masters in Creative Advertising. He once pulled a giant statue of the Queen in a parade along with 20 other giant Queen Elizabeth’s. The real Queen was neither in attendance or amused. For everything else, enjoy their website. Some highlights for me Harry Ramsden’s,
#ShoutOuttoHelpOut is not limited to graduates (we are ‘graduates of life’?). It’s to celebrate the incredible talent and to highlight that following your passion isn’t always a direct or linear journey. Louise Sykes, graduated from Goldsmiths in Anthropology but knew from a young age she wanted to work in magazines and once she graduated from Goldsmith’s College, began working for publications such as Vogue, You Magazine and Company, learning the Industry from the Fashion Editors and Stylists there. Before breaking out on her own Louise worked at the BBC for the fashion programme, The Clothes Show; researching trends, styling presenters and fashion stories. Turning freelance has allowed Louise to work with a variety of lifestyle, retail and commercial brands, fulfilling any of their styling needs. Louise is an internationally published Fashion Stylist based in the UK and someone we hope will join us as a guest on our new invention: the podcast.
#ShoutOuttoHelpOut Jess Chalmers a graduate from Bath Spa University with a particular interest in branding and print. Jess did an exchange in Chicago at Columbia College Chicago whilst at Bath, she’s a Scout leader, loves hiking and watersports. Oh, and she has two very cute pet rats called Kimmy and Kathy (named after Kim Deal & Kathleen Hanna). Her work for Made in Bath is beautiful, but her Ramble project has got real legs (our intended)
#ShoutOuttoHelpOut Lucy Geraghty, a recent graduated from Arts University Bournemouth in Visual Communication BA(Hons). Lucy’s on the next step of her journey of self discovery as a designer.
