Industry vs Graduates 2 – A tale of Two Cities

Back in February we held an event called ‘VS’, allowing practicing creatives, graduates and students to face up in a fierce battle. Despite teams of equal numbers the grads crept ahead, excelling particularly in the artistic challenges (willy drawing being a forté).

It’s now about time to find out not only whether the pros can regain some honour but also which creative hub is more passionate and game for a laugh, Liverpool or London.

Amidst a haze of beer, chat and music, once again we will be encouraging participants to compete in micro-challenges, notching up valuable points for their teams, as well as some new additions of staged professional and student grudge matches and team challenges, with the usual prizes and giveaways throughout. Regardless there will be countless opportunities for those on both sides to meet and discuss the finer aspects of football, politics and the relative merits of various weights of Akzidenz Grotesk.
