ShellsuitZombie @ New Blood ’11

Finally (a week later than planned) we can announce what’s coming up at ShellsuitZombie’s stand for D&AD New Blood 2011. And what a lineup we have for you…

Friday 1st July: Digital Masterclass with Collective London

At 4pm come and find us in T3 to take part in our digital workshop with top 5 digital agency Collective London. Working on a real brief from one of their current clients, Innocent, you will be able to quiz both the creative director of Collective as well as bods from Innocent and sup on a delicious free smoothie while you bash out your ideas. The best of these will be rewarded with features on the innocent channels and a ‘career surgery’ with Collective, in which you will get a free meal and a bit of quality time with some of the best in the business working out how best to get you to that next step and giving you the contacts to do so. This is a seriously incredible prize and should not be missed.

Saturday 2nd July: Zine Workshop with Alex Zamora of @Feverzine

At 12pm The king of zines, Alex Zamora, is leading us in a workshop in which you will be able to concept, produce, print and bind a limited run of your very own zine. We’ve even got our hands on a photocopier for all your edgy montage needs. The best zines will feature on both ShellsuitZombie and Feverzine and you will get a bonus portfolio piece for that extra edge. Bring stuff along to put in it or just create on the day, it’s up to you. Ultimate self-expression!

Sunday 3rd July: SSZ Magazine issue 2 launch and SPECIAL CHALLENGE (with free beers)

On sunday afternoon (4ish) we will be informally celebrating the launch of the second issue of our magazine with a little party. Come and join us for music, a free ice-cold beer and to take part in our party games including musical chairs, sleeping lions and a secret challenge which could win you a shitload of prizes.

Monday 4th July: Advertising workshop with Brave

Fresh from last years incredible Cadbury’s brief, ad agency Brave are coming along to set another challenge for any budding creative teams and designers out there. Get your heads in gear, if it’s anything like last year you’ll be thinking seriously big.


Not only that…

But throughout we will be running our face-offs, pitching universities against each other to discover who really is the most creative. Last year it was Bolton and we have last years winning team amongst the judges for this years contest. Win the kudos your university deserves (as well as a healthy heap of prizes and a bit of publicity too). REPREZENT.

Drawing Wall

Finally we will also be running a drawing wall with 2010 New Blood exhibitors and illustration collective Hidden Dingbat. They will be documenting the goings on and inviting guests to contribute to our huge mural. Expect line, colour and a lot of pens…


Check out a short and shit video of what we got up to last year. Expect more of the same…

That’s all folks. See you there!
