Pippa update

Pippa Harrigan graduated from the Lincoln Creative Advertising course two years ago. She was great: bubbly, fun, serious about advertising but crazy enough to dress-up as Barbie for the final year show. After she left Lincoln she did the post-graduate course at Watford where she met her creative partner Andrew (who has a writing background from studying at Leeds).

They left Watford last year and went straight into a placement at VCCP for six months.

According to Pip, "It was a great first placement as they give placement teams a lot of responsibility. We would definitely recommend any team starting out to try it there."

Following their placement at VCCP they went to Albion:

"We found working there a bit of a shock at first as it was so different to VCCP, but different in a good way. We quickly settled in there and after four weeks we then got hired."

"I would especially like to thank Gyles and Mike from Lincoln and Tony and Mike from Watford for all the help they gave us on our journey."

Pippa and Andrew have kindly offered the following advice to graduates:-

1.Work hard and be a nice person.

2. Also stay positive (it can be quite a testing experience trying to get into advertising but the great thing about advertising is if you keep trying you will get there in the end).

Well done Pippa (and Andrew!). You're doing us proud! Keep up the great work and we look forward to catching up with you soon in London.
