D&AD Creative Ideas

“Creativity is the last legal way to get a business advantage.”

Maurice Saatchi

Nick Eagleton is UK Creative Director at The Partners. He’s been there 14 years, describing himself as "institutionalised". But what an institution! Just step into reception at The Partners and you’re met with the sight of a shelf-full of D&AD Pencils, 16 Yellow and one Black. 

In the distant days prior to The Partners, Nick worked for a number of design companies. Notable amongst these were Atelier Works and Bull Rodger: Design & Advertising. Back in the day, he also worked as a visiting lecturer in Design Computing at Central St Martins College of Art and Design. But talk to Nick and he keeps mentioning one job, his first ever: as an "Exhibition Guide and Explosive Chemistry Demonstrator". He was known as the "Bubble Man", as he says, "my best job title ever".

Course Outline

Get tips and techniques that will help you turn germs of ideas into gems of ideas. As with all our Creative Training Sessions, Nick’s workshop is interactive to the point of near-exhaustion. As he says, "it requires energy and enthusiasm" to get the most out of it. In this creative ideas training course (with never a dull moment) Nick concentrates on raising the creative ambitions of every participant. He describes the day as "the creative process in a microcosm", one that shadows as closely as possible (given its inherent time constraints) working on a brief in real time. Anyone looking for creative ideas professional development courses will benefit immensely. At the end of it, he reckons he will have raised your creative bar by several notches.

Suitable for

  • Designers of all types
  • Those working for in-house creative departments
  • Writers and art directors from agencies
  • Any person who is interested in being more innovative
  • Anyone who's involved in coming up with ideas, no matter in which industry they work
